A Japanese politician attacks TWICE for Dahyun's comfort women shirt

TWICE, Dahyun
A Japanese politician is attacking TWICE for a shirt that Dahyun wore.

On November 13, Japanese politician Onodera Masaru shared a past airport photo of Dahyun from September 2017. The idol star is captured in a shirt supporting comfort women victims. 

'Comfort women' refers to Korean women who were forced into sex slavery for the Japanese soldiers during World War II. 


Onodera Masaru tweeted, "BTS is not going on NHK's 'Kōhaku Uta Gassen.' This is good news but there's another bad incident. This is a 'comfort women' shirt. The profit from the shirt is being inappropriately used for Korea's 'comfort women' movement. I have reported the issue to NHK."




'Marymond', the brand behind the shirt that Dahyun wore, designs products and content in support of the comfort women victims. 


The Japanese politician's tweet gained over 15K retweets as of this writing. Right-wing Japanese netizens are demanding TWICE to be removed from  'Kōhaku Uta Gassen' lineup. 

On the other hand, Korean netizens are reacting with anger to the politician's tweet. Comments stated, "Why are they tackling this now? This is nonsense," "They don't even have the right to be mad. Korean women are the victims," "Japan just needs to stop," "They're going too far now. Don't mess with the comfort women victims."

Meanwhile, NHK recently confirmed TWICE attendance at this year's 'Kōhaku Uta Gassen.' The announcement has upset right-wing Japanese netizens

many of the old right wingers don't even believe that they committed any war crimes. they think it was all a conspiracy and that these comfort women were just prostitutes. japans education doesn't teach them about any of the horrible things they did in WW2, which is why there are so many misinformed people.

No
It's a trend to hate Koreans in general
I have relatives in Japan and they don't like Koreans
except for Korean celebrities but still it has limits..like, K-celebs can prance around and be praised by Japanese citizens but if they upset them esp. when a Korean express LIBERTY/FREEDEOM/INDEPENDECE, the Japs get offended
U know..history and all that
plus they have this island dispute going on...until now.
Tbh most older Japanese think lowly of Koreans this is a fact my relatives are like that

Some Japanese people seriously keep embarassing themselves on the international scene by reacting like this every single time. No one is blaming them personally. People just want them to acknowledge what has been done by the japanese people before them so why is it so hard for them to say ''Yes, they did it'' They keep dening history and keep on telling false things like even people from other countries know at this point. Accept it and move on.

Japanese politicians are cheap and useless. They should be trying to mend the relationship between Korea and Japan and not attack idols over useless rants of "shirt is being inappropriately used for Korea's 'comfort women' movement." Grow up, it's your country that did this and there is no point denying the fact. Do you rape as well Mr/Mrs Dumbass Politician? Is that why you are so pissed, abusing your power to try dethrone something that is good? I hope you reflect on your miserable life as well as all those who are thick enough in the head to disregard organisations such as Marymond as boring, trash, inappropriate, inferior and so on. Oh, and by the way, purchase some Marymond clothing while you are at it :) http://m.marymond.kr/main/index They are very pretty and you also support those forced into sex slavery, or more commonly known as "comfort women". These people were assaulted, beaten, tortured everyday sexually just to boast the morale of "soldiers" who apparently were fighting on the front line for their country sacrificing their lives bravely?? (So where did they find the time to rape people?) I'm pretty disappointed in the world, back then and now. Once again this is a case of "victim turned offender" and props to those Japanese soldiers who did actually fighting and not abuse women. Once again don't forget to purchase some Marymond clothing ^^

Do you have a selective reading comprehension or vision? Jimin's shirt had a picture of the real bombing on it which lead to at least 100k-200k deaths, so while right wing trash spoke out against it, they weren't the only ones, any normal person who doesn't suffer from sudden idiocy the moment their fave is involved, thought it was shitty. Dahyun's t-shirt actually only SUPPORTS the victims without using anything like that, and anyone with the brain or good education knows that she's done nothing wrong. And right wings aren't the majority in japan so those nutjobs can whine to each other forever

They’ve tried attacking Seventeen too, some are going after Red Velvet and of course some are still going after BTS more specifically RM.

It seems really obvious at this point that Japanese politicians are looking to pick a fight with Korea by attacking their entertainers. I can't help but to feel that the court ruling for that Japanese corporation to compensate those four Korean individuals for forced labor, has triggered such a vile response, that this can no longer be a coincidence that idols are being dragged and criticized for situations that happened previously. Think about it for a minute. It has to be extremely upsetting for Japan to see the colony that they once ruled, that was abruptly snatched from them due to the catastrophic atomic bombs that were dropped on them. The fact that South Korea has advanced and come so far as a nation in the years since their liberation does not seem to sit well with politicians and the government in Japan. I don't think Japanese citizens hold a grudge nearly as strong as their officials do because Japan is among the largest group of people who consume and support what the kpop industry exports out of South Korea. Kpop is a HUGE moneymaker and it's become a worldwide phenomenon. It makes perfect sense why idols are under attack now for past behavior or situations, still is wrong though and I have a strong feeling that more of our favorites will be banned or criticized soon.

All the offenders might be dead and gone now (or mostly) but the country itself just needs to say 'yep, we did it, we are sorry, we will never do it again'. But of course they won't - creatures like this foul piece of garbage apparently think it was perfectly okay to commandeer WOMEN as if they were horses, to further the war effort :( Disgusting!

It would have been nice if Dahyun wore a comfort women shirt in support of alll victims from around the world. She should wear a Lai Dai Han shirt, where Vietnamese women were raped and massacred by South Korean troops during the Vietnam War. These victims are still waiting for a formal apology from the South Korean government. As a public figure and citizen, Dahyun can raise awareness for Lai Dai Han and make some noise with South Korea..

I just got new information from a friend. Apparently it was many countries troops and civilians wherein war crimes were committed. She tells me it was so bad just recently Japan has given permission to have weapons. I had no idea there is a power that allows and disallows such a thing (I imagine a big circular room of world leaders gathering like in the movies) and the crimes were severely punished because they were so horrifically bad. My opinion, although might be unpopular, is that the politician is in a position of power for their country and as such possibly their petulant pride in feeling they are still being punished for a sentence served. I don't hold Japan responsible for their crimes. It is not Japanese people today who performed these crimes. Individuals did seventy years ago. And people now are still trying to heal. Let people heal. Help if you can. I would. How much is that shirt?

I think we are giving too much attention to the far right wing(extremists), if we did that in any other country and gave them a voice that country would seem very racist and bigoted as well

It seems ridiculous to me that politicians have to use idols to gain importance ... but I say at least they use a better excuse. Politics and artists should not be mixed ... because Japanese fans do not defend them ??

It's the usual cheap political controversy. The history is there, incontrovertible, they could simply burn the bridges and cut all the ties, but none of the contenders wants to give up on the advantages of keeping alive the commercial interchanges between the countries.

I absolutely do not condone the japanese government's stance, but it's too bad nobody wears a shirt about the Blue Dragons in Vietnam, I would be curious to read the reactions from korean netizens...

First of all thank you for Dahyun unni for supporting comfort women movement. I am proud of this young girl who knows so much about our history, she knows very well that if she was borned on this days maybe she would be also victim of sexual slavery and what pervert dirty Japs did to our ancestors during the world war. Then fuck all the japs !!! Dirty pervert race who are not even recognizing their sins !!! I don't know why we are still having tie with dirty Japs? Why our artists need to go to this fucking pervert country. Dahyun unni fighting !

If Korean comfort women was so atrocious, how come families who owned slaves before the Japanese occupation haven’t faced scrutiny? How come slavery and a class system was in place for centuries that was left unchallenged?


How come Itaewon once had and i believe still has yet a couple more brothels that were run by Koreans to service foreign men?


How come there are red light districts still in Korea if using women for sexual comfort caused so much pain during the occupation?


How come it has taken decades for Korean men to finally be held accountable for all of sexual misconduct in the workforce? All the rapes and drunken assaults and non drunken assaults on their own women. All of the domestic violence left unchecked and never confronted until a foreign movement reached out to Korea and gave victims of a voice to speak up? How come Korea didn’t have a MeToo variation in existence to say something about the predatory behavior women and children are subject to?


Why aren’t people wearing shirts for that?

If mushroom shaped explosions hurt Japanese people, why do the Japanese still eat mushrooms?

If explosions from atomic chain reaction are so bad, why is Japan still called the land of the rising sun?


See what I did there? Thanks for displaying your idiocy.

so if someone is upset at what germans did to jews they should never do any business in germany because there are still people who deny holocaust and are supportive of the nazis there? are you 12?

the people who want to point out the atrocities that happened during the war are fully aware that not all japanese people today are like that, not even the majority and that politicians very rarely really speak for the common folk. living in a country/doing business there does not mean you have to support their history or their politics because you are not dealing with their ancestors nor are you dealing with the country as a whole.

the shirt is not political. marymond is also not political. it is a personal expression of support for people she believes were wronged. none of the idols who wear marymond are battling japan on political level they are not presenting themselves as activists for reparations. they are simply wearing a shirt by a company that uses profits from those shirts to help the victims.

it's like saying that any actress who supports the metoo movement should never accept a role in a movie directed by a man.

The Germans have issued apologies and have outlawed any signs or symbols of the Third Reich. Don't compare them to other countries in the war.

What I find confusing is that Japanese and most Jpop idols are upset at the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but will gladly do business with and travel to the US. It's contradictory. If Japanese people are so upset by the atomic bombs, then maybe they shouldn't go to the US.

Now, because of a mistake of the BTS costume designer, the Japanese who hate Korean culture will investigate even the first generation of Kpop, what they wore, how they wore, and why they wore, Japanese haters can like bother to disturb the Korean idols.
