A young Korean man had his vacation in Japan ruined after facing discrimination when he tried to enter an Izakaya restaurant.  


On April 28, a video was posted on YouTube of BJ (Broadcast Jockey) Minsung traveling in Japan when he decided to dine in at a restaurant.


The two-minute footage featured the man walking around when he discovered an Izakaya style restaurant saying, "Oh this looks nice."  He then spoke in Japanese asking the patrons and employees, "Is this Izakaya?"

Hearing this, there were a few giggles inside with whispers of "No Korean." Eventually, a Japanese employee stepped outside and told BJ Minsung, "What? What? F*ck you Korean," cursing and telling him to "Go Out."  There have been numerous reports of Korean tourists facing discrimination and harassment in Japan recently.


Startled, the BJ decided to take his leave trying his best to suppress his angry emotions.  "I am seriously being patient right now.  I held back not wanting to start a fight. I wanted to say it's because of f*ckers like you that Japan gets cursed at... but I was patient because I really don't want to end up at the police station," he confessed.

    WOW Idk what would've happenned if that was me getting told such harsh words.. moreover insulting my country... I would probably write down the name and adress of the restaurant and surely file a lawsuit.. you cannot fight back with punches but at least the law should be the one to make justice and since he's got a video to prove it he should have done that

    This guy has A LOT of patience. The first time the guy said anything derogatory to me, he's waking up in a hospital.

    Japan again? well..I'm not surprised. Over the past ten years, Japan has been turning into a symbol of discrimination, especially on Koreans. Even a Korean elementary school in Japan got harassment. I remember the article: 'Korean tourists getting harassed in Japan is caught on camera.' It was just a few months ago. What else now?

    I'm not surprised this happened. I'm just glad they were able to document this. Japan has such a clean image because media portrayal of them, especially in the US, is so positive.  This is just disappointing. It's hypocritical for Koreans to get mad but I think Koreans are especially mad specifically because they are Japanese. They occupied and oppressed their people for so long I can see why it's offensive. Every ethnicity has good and bad people but honestly, treat others how you want to be treated.

    I don't really see how it's hyporcritical for Koreans to be mad at this behavior. I know many Koreans hate Japanese people, but I think anybody has the right to be mad to be REFUSED service and told to get the fuck out of a restaurant just for being a race. I have read and seen reports of that happening in Korea (signs saying Korean speakers only), but it felt more to do with the owners not wanting to deal with translating and avoid extra hassle. The situation in this video is different because the Korean guy actually knows Japanese (as seen in his other videos).

    I hope this person can out the restaurant so people can boycott such ignorant people.

    would be good if this somehow ends up at the police who can investigate the place for racism

    off topic, but how do I get that kind of skin. I have been using a Korean skincare routine for 3 months and my skin is cleared of acne p_p but I still have acne scars and blemishes. Is this really make-up or skincare? Anyway, poor him :(

    It's also because of diet too. I personally stay away from fried foods and drink green tea every day. It def helps with the improvement of skin. Have you tried rubbing/exfoliating with lemons? Try that once a week. There are also other alternatives such as chemical peels which removes the first layer of your skin and stimulates cell regeneration. But I think that may be too harsh. There's stuff in the korean market where you can wash your face and remove dead skin cells. Hope this helps. :)

    I agree diet matters, I also stay away from fried food, no msg, 90% of the time I cook my food to avoid the preservatives in processed foods, and less salt and sugar consumption. I also drink green tea every two days, I'm worried about the caffeine in it. I lost weight doing that, and that wasn't the goal lol, it helped with the skin too, but only when I switched to the Korean skincare did I notice how amazing those products were. I tried everything, spent $$$$ on skincare and BS, my skin got so bad. Then, I have no clue why I started the Korean skincare, must have been desperate, the products were so cheap, I was skeptical at first, and yep it worked! Please, give me one product that could be used to remove dead skin cells, I used both a daily scrub and African black soap, but still have my acne scars, fading away. Doesn't it hurt to exfoliate with lemon? Which chemical peel would you recommend? Haven't tried any yet... How do I get a glowing and blemish-free skin like him?

    Perhaps you're skin is irritated from certain products? I try to experiment different brands and narrow down what I like the most. So far Holika Holika is my choice of skincare. I tend to get hives from TonyMoly and the Face Shop is also a pretty good brand for masks. Holika Holika gave me a lot of free samples when I spend over a certain amount. Try out:Holika Holika Smoothie Peeling CreamRaw honey and lemon is also good for blemishes/scars. While lemons are a natural anti bacterial and a bleaching agent, honey provides nutrients and stimulates the healing process. I also use Holika's Honey Sleeping Pack which I use at night to seal in all my other moisturizers. (ironically I accidentally cut my leg using black african soap, so i rubbed honey on my skin every night to heal my scar. Lol!) It smells so wonderful and the gel cools my skin so nicely. Amazing feeling in the summer!I know this isn't a korean product, but there's also Bio-Oil and Vitamin E. You can buy the gel capsules and break it to apply on skin if need be. Bio-Oil takes a while and I don't love the smell of it. I rarely use these so I can't properly give a full review or answer, but if it's natural, it doesn't hurt to give it a try. Since I can't copy & paste links here, try going into SokoGlam and keyword Fading Acne Scars: Skincare Products to Love. They also have a full range of products you can try out. Sorry It's not much. Good luck! :D

    I feel so bad for this guy T-T after reading through the comments, i think we should rly stop generalising a race as a whole. i dont think all japanese are rude like this, there are rly nice ones out thr that dont discriminate against other race. Same for Koreans, Chinese or any other race. There's the racist ones, the victims but also the peace-makers. They are always bad apples in a group. We should stop letting these bad apples influencing us, making us fight each other more. Instead, let's look at the good ones and spread the positivity :')

    Japanese/Koreans/Chinese are considered races since they have different languages and cultures. Ofc, if u want to consider them as nationalities too, go ahead. :)

    Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Vietnamese, etc., are ethnicities. Asian, black, white is a race.

    They can overlap, but it's very distinct. Ethnicity a term for those sharing the same traditions, customs, language, regional culture, etc. Race is more unitary as it's associated with your biology.

    If you stood a Japanese, Korean and Chinese side by side, dressed them identically do you think you would be able to tell which "race" they are? I am pretty sure you couldn't. We ourselves can't tell someone apart until they speak.
