Netizens angered after SuperM's website labeled the 'East Sea' as the 'Sea of Japan'


SM Entertainment's global supergroup SuperM recently launched their new website.

On December 3rd, SuperM posted a link through their social media account in which fans all across the world can communicate and connect with the group. However, there is controversy as the map on the website labeled the 'East Sea' as the 'Sea of Japan.' There is a naming dispute between South Korea and Japan over the 'East Sea.' 

Some netizens are criticizing and raising their voices of dissatisfaction. Netizens commented, "How can a South Korean idol group label the East Sea as the Sea of Japan?," "They really need to access this and edit it," and "I can't shield them from this one."

As more netizens express their dissatisfaction, SM Entertainment has shut down the website.

The dude that made the map:

Poor dude, people should know by now, if you don't want to piss off knetizens with subjects related to China-Japan you need to make your work reviewed by many koreans that know about the drama, the political views and all the history and bad blood that they have with those countries.
