So let me get this right...they're mad because a JAPANESE group performed the JAPANESE national anthem? I mean, I know that there's still some strife between some Korean and Japanese citizens, but why would you be mad at someone for performing their own national anthem in their own country?

Well, they could've sang Uganda's national anthem, or India's, or Lichtenstein's... Sheesh, over 200 national anthems and they HAD to pick their own. What were they thinking?

That makes no sense. They are Japanese, why the fuck would they sing an Indian or Ugandan national Anthem when they have nothing to do with it. What were YOU thinking? It's common fucking sense to sing YOUR OWN anthen, like it's not fucking rocket science or a big deal.

Man, all of these crazy ass K-netizens are just out here simply trippin' without a doubt at all. And also, didn't they realize that there's Korean members in the group as well? Oh my God, oh my God, this is why I always know without a single doubt in the whole wide world that politics just absolutely, positively, most definitely and TOTALLY don't have a single place in K-Pop, EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And in addition to that, they absolutely need to just keep the politics out of the genre ENTIRELY and enjoy the got damn music for goodness sake.

Can koreans stop blaming japanese people for what their grandparents did? I know it was horrible, but it's in the past. Most of that people is already dead. The best way to heal is let go of old hates. I'm from Mexico, and we no longer hate spaniards for all the terrible things they did to us during the conquest period.

For those of you who are condemning the petitioners I don't think it's right for you to do so if you don't understand the full history of the horrifying treatment the Koreans suffered from the Japanese. This is a very sensitive issue for us Koreans. It is like talking about the Holocaust to a Jewish person. From now on, you should know the history/background information before you criticize anyone. However, that does not necessarily mean that I support the petitioners.

If you want to know more about the history between Korea and Japan, I would recommend the following movies:

Battleship Island (starring: Song Joonggi, So Jisub, Hwang Jungmin, and Lee Junghyun)

Assassination (starring: Jun Jihyun, Ha Jungwoo, and Lee Jungjae)

Snowy Road (KBS1 two-part television special) (starring: Kim Saeron and Kim Hyanggi).

This could be perfectly reasonable if it wasn't that all those tragic events are magically forgotten when korean entertainers promote in Japan or release japanese versions of their music, right?

First of all, I am a fan of IZ*ONE so I have nothing against them at all but I like them. However, this article should have explained more about those K-netizen’s protest. The reason why they filed a petition against IZ*ONE is when the AKB48 members performed their show, they wore tops designed with ‘Rising Sun Flag’ at the ‘Yasukuni Shrine’, let alone singing the Japanese national anthem which is for Japanese Imperialism. 1.’Rising Sun Flag’ is deemed as equivalent to the ‘Nazi Flag’ in Korea and many other nations. 2.’Yasukuni Shrine’ is always in controversy since it has the remains of ‘class A war criminals’ inside to be worshiped. K-Netizens have reasons to protest but I personally think that it is not right to ban IZ*ONE in S.Korea since those Japanese girls didn’t know any better about complicated war history like many young Japanese with manipulated history textbooks by the Japanese government ruled by right wing Japanese bastards. Love you and Cheer up IZ*ONE!❤️

I am pretty sure no one knows what those members political views are left or right. what boggles me is we are even having this discussion. ok some kids got offened and sent a petition to the blue house where its gonna end up in the circular file because there are way more important issues to deal with and offending a niegboring country because thier citizens sang thier national anthem on thier soil is just not worth it.

If IZ*One get banned I wish all kpop acts will get banned in Japan too.

They should be making the petition on good things like giving justice to U-Kiss member cousin.

I'm from PH and we're one of the country who had worst experienced from JP before death-match,comfort woman etc.. but we welcomed AKB48 in our country we even had a JP comedian before.

Bruh, it's like singing the American National Anthem as a japanese or like a South Korean singing the North Korea's National Anthem. Smfh, Im pretty sure you're not supposed to sing your own country's anthem and in this case (Korea's) if you're in another country especially in front of a big audience that aren't Korean. I mean that's just how I see it. Im a former korean and I don't find this shit offensive at all and to be fair, I haven't lived through the horrors of Japan's dictatorship in Korea in the early 1900s.

Why can't people just love each other and be positive????

Are you left?

Are you right?
Pointing fingers, taking sides
When are we gonna realize?

We all bleed the same
We're more beautiful when we come together
We all bleed the same
So tell me why, tell me why
We're divided
If we're gonna fight
Let's fight for each other
If we're gonna shout
Let love be the cry
We all bleed the same
So tell me why, tell me why
We're divided

Tell me, who are we
To judge someone
By the kind of clothes they're wearing
Or the color of their skin?

Are you black? (black)
Are you white? (white)
Aren't we all the same inside? (the same inside)
Father, open our eyes to see!

Only love can drive out all the darkness
What are we fighting for?
We were made to carry one another
We were made for more, said
Only love can drive out all the darkness
What are we fighting for? yeah
We were made to carry one another
We were made for more!

Let's stand united (let's stand united)
Let's stand united!

Lyrics from one of my favorite songs bleed the same by Mandisa, these are words to live by

I think the real crime here is that there are 12 members in this group! It will take me 3 years to find my bias! lol. Everyone should be proud of their country and proudly sing their anthem. I remember a Canadian/American hockey game in Canada where the PA system went out during the US national anthem and the Canadian fans all helped finish singing the US anthem. It was beautiful.
