Actress Yoo In Na, who was filming for a drama in China, is reportedly catching the plane back to Korea on August 5. 

Yoo In Na still has a couple more episodes left to film, so her abrupt leave is leading to speculation that she was booted from the drama. 

The actress has currently filmed up to episode 13, and due to news of her sudden departure from China, rumors are circulating that she has permanently left the project and that she will be replaced with a Chinese actress.

YG spoke up about the rumors to My Daily, informing the media outlet on August 4, "Yoo In Na is currently in China, and regarding the rumors, we are still discussing the situation with the production company." 

While the exact reason for the rumors isn't clear, people are putting forth the conjecture that the recent deployment of THAAD is what led to Yoo In Na's sudden leave from China.

It feels like election season. Whenever there is a big political move in China, S.Korea or Japan, you get an increase in racial tensions between the three. And usually politicians, TV networks and celebrities, take advantage of that by performing actions that will appeal to the patriots of their nations. This is similar, where they are making an example of removing Korean celebrities, in an effort to appeal to the patriotic side of the people. It will pass in time, like it always does.

The thing is the hallyu wave have been taking over asia and countries like China and Japan have every right to restrict it to preserve their own interests. Why do Kpop Artists for example have to debut in China, Japan and even the USA? You can be mad at China for their political views but you would be a hypocrite to complain China boycotting Korean celebs.

BigBlueagain dragonboy Thursday, August 4, 2016

Why? Yes, they've debuted in the U.S. as well but they haven't gone anywhere. Why? Not enough people are buying it. China and Japan? They eattin this shit up. And that scares the hell out of the would be dictators that have them on a leash. China isn't boycotting Korean talent because they don't like them. China's government is doing it because they're afraid of them.

kpopisbaebae BigBlueagain Thursday, August 4, 2016

Afraid of them?

bobfish dragonboy Thursday, August 4, 2016

Consider the size of the markets. If Korea is $100m for Music & TV, Japan and China are like $1b each. That is why Korean celebrities always try to debut or perform in those countries, it is where the majority of the money is.

BigBlueagain kpopisbaebae Thursday, August 4, 2016

Yup. Afraid.

Nutelladela BigBlueagain Thursday, August 4, 2016

I completely agree. Monopolizing pop culture, media, fandoms, fashion and trends is the modern way of building an empire. The immense popularity of Korean celebrities in China is definitely incredibly concerning for those in power who are looking to isolate and control the people.

melon kpopisbaebae Thursday, August 4, 2016

The reason why Korean actor, actress idols always try to hit the China Japan market is because that's where the money is. They make so much money its a huge market. To have China restrict them is like China's way to punish Korea in a way. Asshole move but it does work in a sense of making Korea lose out on money. I disagree that China is afraid of Korea. LoL so no. Just being asshole. But I do think there's positives from it. Korean artists are receiving hate in China Chinese artists receiving hate in Korea. So it is for the best they both country artist pull out and stop promoting for their well-being during all this political tension. That's My opinion

Xiyima dragonboy Thursday, August 4, 2016

It's called globalization.

BigBlueagain melon Friday, August 5, 2016

So you think that governments should make decisions for people instead of letting them live their lives and deal with the benefits or costs of their decision? We have a word for that... TYRANNY. And yes, China is terrified that KPop will capture the hearts and minds of a generation and that generation will actually think. The last time people thought for themselves, The PRoC rolled out the tanks.

melon BigBlueagain Saturday, August 6, 2016

Yeah keep putting words in my mouth when did I say anything of that. All I'm saying is I think Korean artists should stop promoting in China because of all the hate they are receiving and Chinese artists should Top promoting in China. The Law China put in is China's law. They want to limit Korean artist promoting in China so what? Its better for the artists anyany people are taking their political war on these artists social media which is unnecessary. What did yoona do why are people attacking her and her country because she's Korean? You are a racist disrespectful hater. You can't tolerate people with opposite opinion to you. You said it yourself and those Chinese artists working in Korea have done nothing but doing their job to be called Thieves. I never said I support China or Korea. I support the decision that their activities should be limited during this sensitive period where everyone is taking out their hate on these artists websites. Quit telling me I think this I said this I said that when I've mentioned none of that. I think it's best that both country Top giving business to each other if they have a problem with each other. Period. I can't believe you deny that you're a racist bias scum in your comment. You have a problem with China government you're taking it out on all their people and their artists. Its unfortunate enough they are from a communist country. They went to work in Korea and you're calling them thieves go back to their country? Yeah and I want believe you got supporters bunch of haters.

Xiyima melon Saturday, August 6, 2016

You're relating ideas that have nothing to do with one another. The problem is that the gobernments are using the entertainment industry to promote political ideas when that industry should basically remain aside. Gobernment and society are two different entities, and more so in dictatorships. China is using the industry to win a ideological war against Korea using money and media, trying to impose itself. And with that they are promoting hate and racism. Political concerns should remain like that and be fixed within those parameters, not using people and people's hate to get away with their agenda. Besides, what @BigBlueagain is saying is true about the Chinese gobernment not wanting Kculture to influence the new generation. I got a scholarship and studied in Shanghai. The university I attended was, a few years ago, for both chinese and international students but suddenly they reestructured everything and now the nationals' campus in almost 2h away from the international one within the city. Reason?? They were to exposed to western ideas...

melon Xiyima Saturday, August 6, 2016

No that is not my point. All I'm saying is South Korea and China are enemies. I can completely understand why China want to enforce new laws to prevent South Korean artist promoting in China. What I'm saying is Chinese artist working in South Korea is receiving hate simply because they are from mainland china working in South Korea. If you read BigBlue's comment he or she clearly called these artists thieves. Quote: they have no problem taking back their thieves. My only debate is that he or she is a racist scum that view all artist or Chinese people in such light because of those artist involved with SM are backing out their contracts. I'm 101% right about that fact that he or she is a racist scum. I have not mentioned anything about any political issue. so I don't know what you guys are arguing about. All I'm saying is it's their country they want to reinforce new laws so be it they do what they want. I'm supporting that Chinese artist should pull out from working in SA and SA artist should stop promoting in China. They are receiving hate from another counties citizen not for something they did but simply because they are from the country that's current in fierce debate with each other. Plenty of example Yoona's social media were flooded by political debate from fans. Lizzy supports Korea, attacked by Japanese fans. Fei so on. I don't know why you are supporting that scum when he/she is out right racist. This has got nothing to do with politics or government. he/she is directly attacking the people. As Bigblue said china can have their thieves back which is exactly what I'm saying. Yes Chinese artist should go back to their country but I don't call them thieves. So I don't understand what's your problem

BigBlueagain melon Saturday, August 6, 2016

First off, The Peoples Republic of China and the Republic of Korea are not enemies. Secondly, a lot of times the peoples of two different governments will voice their opinions and positions through music and media that they cannot legally do openly, and the PRoC knows it. And calling me racist is like calling the Pope atheist. It just ain't so. The PEOPLE of China have shown that they like and want what the entertainment industry of Korea is selling. The Chinese GOVERNMENT doesn't want their people thinking for themselves, so they want to limit it and eventually steal it for their own manipulation. Your stupidity and not being able to comprehend this does not justify you either using a word that doesn't mean what you wish it did or out and out lying about someone else to prove your non-existent point. The PRoC has to enforce their ideas because good ideas don't have to be forced. If it's good enough, people steal it... just like the PRoC. ;) Consider yourself schooled. Class dismissed.

BigBlueagain melon Saturday, August 6, 2016

Class not done yet. This is the definition of racism: a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human racial groups determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to dominate others or that a particular racial group is inferior to the others. ~ So considering that BOTH groups are Asian, you're either too stupid to know what the word means and are just throwing it out there like a moron -or- you're out and out lying to prove your point because you know you can't prove it with the truth. Either bring your IQ up a few points or admit that you have no fucking idea what you're talking about. And as for racist? I'm not the one saying that China should do what it wants because it's China. Now, that isn't racist, that's nationalist, and that is you. Ball's in your court idiot.

melon Thursday, August 4, 2016

I think it's the right thing to do. 2 country hates each other. I would say they are at war. Its only natural that the 2 country cut ties. Tourism, business all together. I think China is a big market for South Korean idol, actor actress. South Korea is also one of the places Chinese go spend their money. More prefer Korea over Japan because K-pop is taking over. Korean actors and idols make so much money from indorsement and stuff. I would say the Korean entertainment agency are making a huge loss because of all this. Similarly South Korea should just drop all their Chinese artists and send them back to China. The internet is full of haters anyway. The longer these Chinese K-pop idol stay in Korea the more they are going to suffer similarly their agency is going to suffer from dealing with it all. Same goes for Korean artists in China.

BigBlueagain melon Thursday, August 4, 2016

Here's the difference. China boots people because they see them as a threat. Chinese talent are no threat to the Koreans. They have a free market economy and when the Koreans get tired of the nationalistic bullshit, they'll just stop supporting them. The Korean government doesn't control their people so it has nothing to fear from them thinking for themselves. Unlike China.

melon BigBlueagain Thursday, August 4, 2016

What I think is artists from both country are receiving hate respectively. I think it is best to cut these ties and return their artist to their country. I see no reason for China to benefit off Korean celebrity and I see no reason for Chinese artists to benefit off working in Korea. I think it's unfair for them to be receiving hate. They should be able to support their country without such gate. Example Fei Lizzy. I honestly think it's the right thing to do and Chinese artist working in Korea should get sent back too. I mean the 2 country hate each other. Similar to their people Chinese hate Korean Korean hate Chinese. I think they should just drop dealing business with each other. Its tough on these poor artists of both country. They shouldn't have to suffer through politics

BigBlueagain melon Thursday, August 4, 2016

Supporting your country is one thing. Supporting a specific and illegal policy of your government is another. The Chinese celebs who are supporting the 9 dash line deserve whatever they get. And the Korean government doesn't have to do a thing about it. The market is making that determination for itself. Now China? The people actually making their own decisions? Why do you think the government removes people who start that kind of thinking? ;)

BigBlueagain Thursday, August 4, 2016

Alright Semple Pie. You wanna play? We can play. :)

melon BigBlueagain Thursday, August 4, 2016

What do you mean by Chinese government remove people with certain thinking. I'm sure they don't act like North Korea let's execute people. China is communist that's how communist work. Too bad no freedom gotta listen to your government. And no I don't think there's anything wrong with supporting your own country and nobody should be receiving hate for doing so. Lizzy supports Korea against Japan's claim. I don't care really who's right who's wrong in that sense she should be able to proudly support whoever she wants. I still think if China is putting forward laws in their country to limit Korean celebrity activity Korea should do the same to them. Why employ Chinese idols that's creating trouble by supporting their own country in Korea. Just kick them out. They are also being hated by the Korean anyway. Or are they keeping them there just so they can suffer more hate as punishment for supporting China. I'm kind of confused. Anyhow I still think it's bad for Korean celebrity that are currently active in China. And Chinese celebrity that's active in Korea. I think it's sad that the general public is going on their social media pages and such just to fight over politics. Similarly didn't Yoona of GG had her page floood with politics wars. What the hell. She doesn't deserve that crap she has nothing to do with it. I think it's better for these artists well being to pull out promotion in China

BigBlueagain melon Thursday, August 4, 2016

Why? This thing called free will. The ability to live your life without someone dictating what it will be to you. The ability to take risks and garner the rewards of it or fall flat on your ass. The ability to say what you want to and the responsibility to be held accountable for the repercussions of what you said. Little children have to be told what to do and what to think. Adults can do that allllll by themselves. They don't need big brother in government to do it for them.

melon BigBlueagain Thursday, August 4, 2016

So your are hating on people because they live in a country where their government controls them? I don't even know what you're talking about. Regardless of your government is communist or not everyone is controlled by their government. You live in that country your follow their Law. I'm not sure what exactly you're trying to say. Yes adults don't need to be Baby sit and be told what to do but no you can't do whatever you want to just because you have freedom of speech and such. You still follow the law of that country and there are plenty of things people do that shouldn't be done. Evade tax so on. I'm not quite sure how you come to such a response from my previous comments. Did I say anything about adults have to be treated like children. I'm confused.

it's terrible that China is such a large country because if I could pick one country to have that much land...let's just say it would not be China, or rather no country should be that large. The power abuse is really incredible...

melon lolalooza Thursday, August 4, 2016

America is huge and I think they are the bigger power abuser. They have their army base on every country almost. I think it's fine. If China doesn't want to deal business with South Korea anymore they have the right not to. Similarly Korea should stop dealing business with China. Why deal with county you have problem with.

j_cruz melon Thursday, August 4, 2016

If you learn history you will realize that most US bases are in areas where communist and democratic nations are next to each other. The bases are normally staffed to help the host nation avoid attacks and invasions.

melon j_cruz Thursday, August 4, 2016

Exactly the US put their base everywhere to day they are helping them to avoid invasion bit the truth is that want to stick their nose in every country and have some control and impact in them. I'll defend you and offer your help in return. You think about it. By other country allowing them to plant a base they have access to a lot of information of that country. They can also keep an eye on over surrounding country. Come on nothings for free and nobody does things for others without a purpose of their own or benefit of sorts. I'll leave it at that.

j_cruz melon Friday, August 26, 2016

If you don't want us to stick our nose in your business, stop taking our government aid and stop asking us to intervene every time a big country like China or Russia threatens you. Without a purpose? Do you think Russia wouldn't invade the Ukraine if the US would turn a blind eye? Do you think North Korea wouldn't nuke South Korea if the US didn't have a presence? Do you think African dictators wouldn't continue to pillage and steal from their people if the US didn't get involved? The world should just say thank you and stop complaining when we are the first country they run to for help when they need it.

frickin china....they want to be able to bully the other azn countries so bad.  i hope korea sends all of the chinese idols back to china too.  lets see these crappy chinese agencies develop idols noc's about without using korea.

melon smokeee Thursday, August 4, 2016

To be honest every country bullied another country in 1 way or another. Japan bully every country in the past war between all country killing their people bombing their land. Even though we're in 2016 we're still at war none stop. I think I'd China hate South Korea and want to stop business with them they have the right to similarly Korea should I the same to them. Send everyone back cut the ties, stop dealing business with them block all tourism

lolalooza Thursday, August 4, 2016

This just proves that China is an incredibly disrespectful and mannerless country..who the fuck kicks a guest out of your country when said country was the one who wanted koreans actors/actresses to act in their lame productions to help boost popularity bc apparently china's own cannot

melon lolalooza Thursday, August 4, 2016

Has nothing to do with the agency in China. They are making a lost because of this law. Its the government's decision so they must follow. That is all. I don't think anybody is happy with it. South Korea is benefiting from income drawn from China. The Market is huge. Similarly Chinese agency are gaining so much casting Korean celebrity. However since 2 country have problems with each other they want to cut the ties. I think they have the right to. Why deal business and let other country benefit off you. I think both country are having a lost. There's no winner in this.
