Hwang Chi Yeol is receiving backlash for his comments about China's air quality on the January 23rd episode of 'Radio Star'.
The singer is known for his popularity with Chinese fans, but he's been getting heat from Chinese netizens after his appearance on 'Radio Star'. Hwang Chi Yeol previously stated, "When I arrived at the airport in China, I couldn't see in front of me. It made me think how bad the air quality is, and after drinking water, I felt that the water tasted different too." He added, "Those things don't matter to me."
However, he's now climbed to #1 on Chinese social media site Weibo for his comments, and netizens in the country commented, "I guess he's made all the money he can in China," "China doesn't welcome you," and more.
