Park Joon Hyung spoke against racism and discrimination on 'Hello' in support of an Uzbekistan-Korean woman who came forth to discuss her experience in Korea. 


On the November 28 episode of 'Hello,' an Uzbekistan woman living in Korea shared her story, raising awareness of racism and discrimination in Korean society. 

The woman who shared the story told the audience that she became a Korean citizen, married a Korean man, and had a baby who is half Korean. However, she shared that because of her hijab, people always point fingers at her. 


She revealed that she was once called a terrorist at a library, while getting her bag searched. Once at a supermarket, a woman pulled her hijab, and on the street, a stranger yelled at her, saying, "What are you wearing on your head?" 

The Uzbekistan-Korean lady shed tears confessing that she came on the show to try to make things better for her daughter, who also might experience discrimination because of her choice of religion and wearing a hijab. 


Among the celebrity guests, Park Joon Hyung, who grew up in the United States, sympathized with her the most.

Park Joon Hyung added, "When I grew up in the States, I was often discriminated against." He shared how he didn't look Korean when he was younger, and that even Koreans would be racists against him. He said, "Many convenience stores were owned by Koreans. Once I went in to buy a soda, and the store owner told me to just look from the counter; she was worried that I would steal." He also said"Think about how you want to be treated when you go to other countries. You reap what you sow."

    I want you to read this and try and guess who said it: " The Muslims have always been a people with definite racial characteristics and never a religion." ~ "But even more: all at once the Muslim also becomes liberal and begins to rave about the necessary progress of mankind."

    you gave it away :P But yeah, all I did was take quotes from Hitler and exchange Jew with Muslim. Does sound a LOT like Trump thought doesn't it? Kinda sounds like some of the stuff I'm hearing all over the world as well. It's ugly.
