Park Bo Gum is being targeted by Chinese netizens for allegedly offending the Great Wall of China. 


The issue arose from a scene of Park Bo Gum's sportswear CF that was revealed earlier this year. The controversial scene captures Park Bo Gum playing the go board game against a person named 'Great Wall of China.' Currently, the actor's victory over the Chinese opponent is gaining criticism.

Some offended Chinese netizens commented, "He's trash," "It's time for Chinese media to take action. Ban Koreans from Chinese broadcasts," "Our nation before (Hallyu) stars," and more. 


Currently, numerous Chinese media outlets are making headlines out of Park Bo Gum's "offensive action" from the CF. Unfortunately, it seems like Park Bo Gum has become a victim of international tensions.

    "He's trash" uhhhh nooooo the people who set up the props, the director, etc THEY may be trash but not Park Bogum who has no say in the specifics because he signed a contract. Also it's not like chinese commercials are all angelic flying beautiful commercials of peace and equality

    his character in the drama beat out tons of Chinese players at the game. just because they're being clever with the name i don't think it's bad, even if they were to name him Chinese man, it'd be the same thing.

    I'm just curious about something concerning this subject. Was it Park Bo Gum who planned out the segment involving the so called defeat of "the Great Wall of China" in the Go Board game? Like, was he the one who came up with the idea of him being victorious in a Go match against "the Great Wall of China"?

    are you fucking kidding me, he was only hired to be in the CF. Why are they bashing him for doing what he was directed to do? And it's only a commercial.

    Dear Allkpop, can you do something to deal with the amount of racism within your politically inclined topics because this is ridiculous, the amount of people throwing around racial slurs and degrading comments because of a short and un-descriptive article is ridiculous and the fact that they are encouraging each other's behavior is unacceptable especially considering the age of some of these kpop fans that are going to continue to think that this is OK. Much appreciated.

    don't worry~~ I practice my freedom of speech in real-life as well~~ my point is, you can't censor someone just because you don't like what they said~~ I thought you into the "respect other people's opinion and beliefs"?

    The thing is I don't really care about what you said to censor you to anything, I just asked if freedom of speech allows people to be asses too and since you said it does, well, congratulations, you're an ass.

    Freedom of speech doesn't mean freedom to say whatever you want without repercussions. It means that the government can't attack you or arrest you for your beliefs. We have every right to tell you that you're a piece of shit for being a racist scumbag. Because you are.

    I agree with annyeong_kokoro. You can be an ass and say whatever you want - of course it comes with consequences, but the essence of freedom of speech is that I am allowed to speak as whatever I desire and so is you. And I agree with you too ladamenoire. However, ilikeJB and mispelt are trying to limit our freedom of speech to their likings, which is not acceptable.

    Not to get too picky, but most countries do make exceptions for hate speech. Speech that actively encourages harm to others is generally restricted in the name of the public good. It's just a question of what someone thinks is "actively encouraging" harm. Not trying to shit talk anyone in particular, just saying that the average person's perception of free speech is I CAN SAY WHAT I WANT AND NO ONE CAN STOP ME, and that's just not true in 99.9% of situations.

    No, freedom of speech does not mean you can say everything you desire. Freedom of speech does not give you the right to yell "fire!" in a crowded theater, or allow you to threaten to shoot someone. Even with freedom of speech there are certain things you cannot say at all.

    Freedom of speech means that the government can't punish you for speaking your mind, of course there are acceptions to that, but basically your freedom of speech entails that you won't get in trouble with the government. It doesn't mean that someone can't tell you to stfu, "freedom of speech" doesn't apply when you're talking to a normal citizen because the government may not care, but I'll be damned if I let your ass talk to me with disrespect. Others can also say whatever the fuck they want to say. Don't like it? Sorry, this is the real world bitch.

    Didn't say I limit freedom for you to say anything though, I just asked a question and the other user answered. Simple enough. If that is stopping you from saying your truth, well, that's on you.
