G-Dragon received some flak for retweeting a seemingly 'misogynistic' Oscar Wilde quote.

On September 15, G-Dragon had allegedly retweeted a quote from one of Oscar Wilde's short stories titled 'Lord Arthur Savile's Crime.' The said quote reads, "If a woman cannot make her mistakes charming, she is only a female." While the quote can be interpreted in different ways by different people and may have been taken out of context, a few netizens were outraged all the same. 

They argued that liking and reposting a tweet with the word "female" is considered "misogynistic" and that G-Dragon must apologize. On the other hand, there are many others who see the retweet as harmless, countering that G-Dragon was simply showing appreciation for a literary work.

It seems most netizens deem the retweet, if it indeed did happen, as nothing to get all worked up about. They wrote, "Whoever wrote this article (Kukmin Ilbo), please do your research because G-Dragon never retweeted that," "The quote that Kwon Ji Yong liked is a quote that mocks men's prejudice [toward women]. Please don't misunderstand by saying ridiculous things like it's misogynistic," "Laughable males with zero charisma shouldn't reproduce and just get their nut sacks chopped off," "How could you call that misogyny..please go read some books. Your ignorance is showing lmaoo. This is hilarious," "They're seriously finding fault with everything," and more. 

When the liking and reposting of the tweet quickly became an issue, the person who originally tweeted removed the tweet. However, screen captures from the post have spread on social media.

Korea is a very sexist society. Maybe GD's worldliness will expose him more to a more progressed way of thinking. It's not really his fault but I'm sure he'll get it together

Is this quote famous in Korea or just in general? I can expect people to always be angry about something with this guy.

I don't get why ppl r asking for an apology because if it's forced it isn't sincere.

When did the word "female" become misogynistic? It's a gender title, people need to calm down I swear these recent years; people have just become more prone to take anything offensively just because!
