China may be blocking Korean movies, dramas, and variety shows.

According to Chinese reports and press, Chinese authorities recently ordered that all Korean dramas, variety shows, and movies be banned from broadcast. Programs that have passed deliberation or with formally imported formats (in other words, Chinese shows who bought Korean variety shows' formats) are allowed, but from now on, it is reported that nothing else will be allowed.

Recently in September, Yoo In Na had finished filming 2/3 of the Chinse remake of "Queen Inhyun's Man', but had ultimately stepped down. 'Star Descent', a Chinese-Korean collaboration with Kang Ho Dong and Leeteuk as MCs had also been cancelled without explanation. 

There had been many concerns that China would be blocking Korean entertainment after the announcement that revealed the South Korean Defense Ministry and the U.S. forces' decision to deploy THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense), a missile defense system that could defend against North Korea's nuclear weapons. However, China is strongly opposed to this decision as they are uncomfortable with the proximity of such a high-tech system being deployed so close to their nation's borders.

    Really? Because using the word "hoe" makes your statement sound valid? Grow up.
