Sungshin University professor criticizes Chinese netizens, points out Chinese celebrities also touch pandas with bare hands

AKP STAFF

Professor Seo Kyung Duk, a well-known professor from Sungshin Women's University, criticized Chinese netizens.

He pointed out that Chinese netizens were criticizing Korean celebrities on purpose - first BTS, and now BLACKPINK. BLACKPINK had recently gotten criticized for touching pandas with their bare hands. However, Professor Seo pointed out that many Chinese celebrities and government officials also do the same, attaching a photo of Yao Ming.

Professor Seo said, "China is probably scared that Korean culture is being spread globally. Chinese netizens, why don't you learn to respect the cultures of other countries, first?"

I mean, the professor isn’t wrong, there are Chinese celebrities, and regular citizens who have touched pandas when given the opportunity. Plus, the members of blackpink had their clothes covered and were wearing gloves while handling the pandas, so it’s hardly “touching pandas with their bare hands.”

Well, she's not wrong. Ever since Korean culture, Samsung products, and cars, and such, are spreading rapidly worldwide, China has been attacking them over the most trivial things. And things that Chinese people have done themselves, but only apply to Koreans for being "offensive." But they're especially going hard on Kpop since China has never been able to produce anything close to Kpop's success in contemporary times. People like the former Chinese Kpop idols would've NEVER been able to be where they're at now in China without the help of Kpop and Korea. There's obvious jealousy and envy over Kpop's rapid expansion globally. I guarantee you if BTS or BlackPink never made it big, you wouldn't hear a peep from China. Unless, it's some political issue.
