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

    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.

    The Chinese would probably lose it because of the restriction one day and the programs would probably cater to their demands immediately.

    It has nothing to do with KPOP. Allkpop is just making stories up. It's an anti-missile defence system that shoots down missiles that travel at high altitudes.

    I'm getting sick of Allkpop assuming that an anti-missile defence system is responsible for KPOP stars not appearing on television. You idiots don't even know what THAAD is and it's not a new technology. It was developed by Lockheed Martin many years ago. Stop trying to link KPOP bullshit with the US military's weapons.

    I dunno. Something tells me they already had intercontinental ballistic missile defence systems in place long before they announced it. I have no idea why this is such a big issue. It should already be assumed that South Korea has a means to shoot down ballistic missiles. I don't understand the point in announcing to the world that you have advanced weapons

    All I know is it tend to be this way. If one country legally gives some advansed weapons to another it's reported in the news. Maybe installing something big undercover is not allowed?

    I think you need some education dear :). A Korean getting edited out by a CHINESE show in CHINA doesn't show China's power over Korea's lmfao. I'm Chinese but you're such an embarrassment I can't even. You know why there's no rebuttal kid? It's because there was no understandable argument being made in the first place.

    Why are you replying to a comment I directed at someone else? Obviously it doesn't apply to you, but you clearly force-fed it. And NONETHELESS, you still failed to answer the one question I posed, actually directed at YOU. I'll copy paste my comment word for word: "Let me ask you, why are these chinese idols (plus this korean person) leaving their groups in korea to do shit back in china? Explain."

    Just saying, as a Chinese person, this is really annoying, because without Chinese and Japanese influnce, Korean entertainment would still be pretty popular. I'll agree with you that they have a big infuence, because of population, but Korean ent. would still be popular without Chinese and Japanese influence.

    The k-rookie fans who've recently caught on to the hallyu wave see the industry as blooming and successful. But it wasn't always that way. People don't notice, or bother to note the amount of backhand support nations like china and japan have provided over the years to really push k-ent (either intentionally or unintentionally, through something as simple as paying a korean idol to hold a concert in their country).

    Kpop artists are selling out arenas in the United States and Europe. If China or Japan doesn't work out they can always pivot and concentrate more on other countries. South America / Mexico / Southeast Asia has a lot of kpop popularity. KCON biggest events are in new york and LA.

    I'm sorry but K-ent gas existing prior to outside influences. They make good shows and produce great talent, that is why other countries became interested. Yes, China may have the monetary capital but not the creative capital. It is proven that China has been copying others for years. If you deny that, then the Chinese brainwashing has worked on you and no amount of rebuttal will ever persuade you otherwise.

    Puhlease, north america and europe wouldn't pay HALF as much the chinese did to invite k-idols to their country. Look at the par of fanmeets or concerts hosted by idol groups internationally. Unless they're invited to a large scale event like kcon, it's shit. Bts is a recent example of that.

    No, the chinese ABSOLUTELY copy, sometimes even concept for concept, korean ent. I have never, and will never deny that. You know what's interesting? The koreans LET THEM. Why? They're being paid. While that occurs, these korean people are being paid (as much as 10x the amount they receive in korea) to make appearances in china. And that in itself, is the incentive and reason why they have the means to push international boundaries and further promote in other countries.

    Not "basically" patriotism, it IS patriotism. But if you think the US, canada, every other country in the world, isn't doing the same, you're too naive to be having this conversation. The way you see china, if you're from the states, is through the lens of extremely biased and manipulative american media.

    It doesn't matter if they won't pay half as much, they'll still pay and if you add other territories (Europe, the middle east, southeast asia, north america, latin america) it will more than make up the difference.
