Rising Hallyu star Hwang Chi Yeol also seems to have been affected by THAAD. 


On the recent airing of China's 'Challenger League', Hwang Chi Yeol along guested along with 7 others, but it's nearly impossible to spot Hwang Chi Yeol on the screen, and his voice is never heard. Even when he does appear briefly, it's only the back of his head or just a part of his body.

Chinese netizens assume Hwang Chi Yeol has been edited out of 'Challenger League' due to the ongoing controversy regarding THAAD. Some welcome the restrictions, whereas some believe the impact on Hallyu promotions is unnecessarily harsh.

    it doesn't even make sense.... in what reality does making a hack job of editing get you higher viewer ratings? And if that's not it, how corrupt is the Chinese government that they meddle in a variety show's content to suit their own needs?

    I feel like it's not even corruption. It's just the power they have over their country as the governing body

    At the very least it's abuse of power.

    As fucked it as it is, at the end of the day, it's their country they can do whatever they want though.

    I was talking about how korea can install anything they want on their soil, especially since it's a self defense mechanism. Second of all these korean stars were allowed to work and they havent violated any chinese laws. Chinese govt is just butt hurt. But frankly all these stars have tons of money anyways so i dont really care

    do u think U.S would allow mexico to do same on there border with U.S ? .. this is not just defense mecanism , it have radar and can spy on China .. I am sure china have good reason why they against this , I think it's enough threat to them to have U.S bases in Korea .. if it was U.S they would never allow russian bases in neighbor countries around them .

    Yup. But US also doesnt have a rogue Canada with a fairly large arsenal pointed at your capital. Super powers will always spy on each other, either by drones, spies, satellites, etc... But the host nation of where it is going to be deployed wants it for self defense.
