Netizens furious over Greek TV program for making derogatory comments about BTS, EXO, & Wanna One

(CC)

A Greek TV program has received heavy criticism for their disrespectful comments towards members of BTS, EXO, and Wanna One.

On January 4th, a Greek television show called 'Eutixeite' discussed the list of Korean idols who made 'The 100 Most Handsome Faces' of 2018. Looking at the photos of BTS, EXO, and Wanna One members (including Sehun, Kang DanielV, Jungkook), the main host Katerina Kainourgiou and her guests made personal comments such as: "He is Chinese", "Is he a man?", and "I can't believe there are women who voted for that thing to be No. 5. Come on!"*.

After watching the segments, netizens and fans worldwide called out the hosts of the show for showing signs of "racism", "xenophobia", as well as prejudiced remarks about gender image and "objective beauty."

Following this issue, host Katerina Kainourgiou posted an apology through social media, stating that she is "receiving terrible and threatening comments and messages" and that the same program plans to "make a tribute to their artistic side." However, netizens refused to back down, denouncing the apology note for trivializing her own doings as "humoristic comments."


Meanwhile, a different Greek talk-show 'Kalytera de ginetai!' soon covered the 'Eutixeite' incident, berating the comments made on the show and instead celebrating the groups' achievements as artists and philanthropists. 

What do you think of this issue?

I like a bit trolling from time to time, but this isnt trolling, they were very disrespectful. This isnt about a kpop group being insulted, it is about a group of people being insulted, it doesnt matter if is kpop, it could have been from another culture and still was rude and ignorant what they said. They should apologize and realize that they did .

they cant talk about other cultures like this, if someone talked about greeks like this they would be offended. treat others as you want to be treated.

It's so sad to see that a lot of people are still so incredibly closed-minded and judgmental in their way of thinking. Beauty is not objective, just because they don't agree with the votings does not mean they can bash people in terms of looks. It is not only disrespectful, but also plain appalling and mean.

Why is there even a TV show like this in which people are just being disrespectful, ignorant and racist?

It's pathetic that something like this is considered entertainment.

As a Greek myself and someone who loves the Korean culture and Korean music since 2010, I feel trully sorry for what they said on Greek national TV. I watched it yesterday on youtube and I felt so embarassed. Unfortunately most Greek shows are like that. They do not make a proper research on the topics they present and they most of the times mislead the viewers.

Regarding the topic they covered on this show ( which let me tell you it's doing terribly here in Greece when it comes to viewer ratings) they show pure ignorance and racism. Plus they have no manners.

It's sad that people like that get the chance to go on TV, open their mouth and say whatever they want without dipping their tongue into their brain first.

allkpop is late

first she gave a half ass apology but when fans are still mad she apologized again

whats funny in her first apology she said its her opinion,and i think she only apologized again because of angry fans but i hope she know the difference between stating her opinion and being a racist ,saying they are girls not guys,they even said daniel is gay because of his looks,"I can't believe there are women who voted for that thing to be No. 5. " => how can you call someone "that thing"??who do you think you are?? humoristic, what humoristic about it?? its not even funny ,how people feel that there is nothing wrong about what they said, As a public image they should be careful about what their say ,we had to speak up about racism sexism & xenophobia

its already 2019 those things need to stop i hate closed-minded and judgmental people

&those who are defending her behavior should feel ashamed too you are encouraging racism here i guess you all need to have some lessons about morals and common sense

i can understanding not liking someone or agreeing with the voting, but not to her extent. she didn't just insult these four, she insulted a whole race of people. it's complete disrespect, even if it was a "joke". do you think greeks would like it if someone insulted them like that? there's a clear line when "humouristic" goes too far and then it's just fucking rude, disgusting and racist.

just because she didn't agree gives her no right to insult them. it's preference and not everyone has the same preference, but she thought her opinion mattered. apparently that gave her have the right to start saying racist shit on national television.

That is my opinion but I'm just saying.

Whether or not it was "humoristic" or not, it was still very rude. I would never say that about anyone, not even if it was my worst enemy. The show basically insulted groups of people. If I'm watching a K-Pop video on my phone/laptop and someone asks me if that is a girl or boy, they don't make those comments. I put it short and simple. "It is a boy, this is a K-Pop boy group." or if it is a girl, "This is a girl, this is a K-Pop girl group." I hate racism too, there is a way you can say things without being racist.

this video thought it has a good translation their are some parts that i would say are a bit different

its 4 minutes but what i found a bit a bit different is : example: the lady that was introducing the top 15 wanted to speak about number 2 because she said "i like him too much" also at the end of the video the same lady (i think) is saying that in korea they really have some really gorgeous and sexy people which the hostess agreed also but the hostess continued that thought sheknows of that fact she doesnt see the current ones on the list as beautiful......

in any case, i find that each peson has its own opinion about what he or she sees as beautiful, you can just say im ok i dont like this and will be ok because it will be just her or his opinion....in any case, i dont think that their is a law that says they cant say what their opinion is...just like you people here are writing your own thoughts they are expressing theirs....

i will agree with a previews post by username : " Kwnna" where he/she said : " I want to state not all Greeks are close minded and racist."

i pesonally find that each and evey person no matter from which race he/she is or how old or young he/she is...or how he/she looks or whatever characteristics he/she may have are beautiful in his/her own way and every person has her/his own likes and dislikes thats why so may different varieties exist, just like how im writting here some other people may or may not like my comments and thats Freedom of speech...

Freedom of speach is an important part of democracy. Freedom of speech allows people to raise their voice, express their concerns,.....

I'm sure even non-kpop fans would agree: the comments made were disrespectful and some were just plain racist. Of course, many of us kpop fans hear things like this on a regular basis, but the frequency of these comments do not excuse the fact that the comments made were completely inappropriate. No, nobody here is overreacting if they 'go off' on the people who made these comments, because the comments were disgusting and rude. We should take this as a reminder that we should always think before we speak, because we don't know who could be offended.

To say these guys are ugly is certainly rude. Some people don't find Asians attractive just as some don't find blacks, mexicans etc. but you can express that in ways that are not rude. Saying they look like women isn't racist nor saying he's Chinese. It seems they really thought he was. Many idols look feminine and that is the truth. If one person thought it, you could simply say maybe they say it to be insulting but they actually look like women to many and even me at times. Still, they should not be insulting about it. To call someone a thing is more demeaning in my opion than anything else that was said. You imply that they aren't even on the same level as you and are subhuman. All of the guys are cute to me but would not be on my list. Not because they are Asian. Nor are they ugly. I simply prefer men similar to the one in the white shirt that said something must be wrong with their eyes, or Rain, The guys from Soju, Dean, The asian actor Danny. Those are guys that would catch my eye. I'm not drawn to feminine looking guys but I still think they are attractive. Personally, I would've like to see the older guys on the list like some from Soju, Jyj, 2 PM etc. As for the young ones, ATEEZ members should've been on the list, especially Yeosang. He looks like he popped out of a Manga and Seo is very distinctive. Well, they all are.

I feel like this one was well deserved.

In Western and European countries I feel like Asian’s beauty is so disregarded, men are considered feminine for wearing trendy clothes and moisturizer. It’s so weird that they have this narrow idea of what beauty is and assume everyone agrees.


This is why global fashion and movie industry should be more diverse, so it’s not “shocking” for ignorant individuals to see that European standard isn’t what everyone finds attractive.

the problem is that european "white standard" IS what people outside of europe finds attractive. It's a shame really, but in east asia (and korea in particular) you'll easily see that this is the case. The double eyelid surgery, trying to get a pointier nose, celebs with darker complexions using white makeup to get a fairer skin color...

For some crazy reason, people always think that what they don't have is the most beautiful thing.

I'm confused how what they said is racist? I didn't watch the whole video so if someone can timestamp it or say what it is exactly that would help. If they didn't say anything racist I think it's fine for people to not like flower boys. People have the right to be upset about it, but I hope they don't do anything that crosses the line into the extreme like ruining someone's career or labeling them as a racist. If they are a racist though, fuck them.

Absolutely not a fan of this kind of programs, no matter the latitude (Korea included), but for the visual part I can see where they come from. Actually, most boy groups use absurd makeup and hilarious styling.

not to say bts does not deserve to be there but its obvious only reason they are listed so high is cuz they are the current trend right now. If they gonna list asian korean men there are so many who are handsome and deserve top 10. Daniel henny should be up there... maybe namjoo hyuk, lee dong wook, hyun bin, theres so many.

You folks are going to have to learn that not every comment is going to glorify or approve your group. Get a thicker skin. If your a fan of BTS what does it matter if someone says something ignorant. Has it stopped BTS? Has it made them decide to retire? No. You can’t just let every little slight towards your favorite performer eat away at you. I’m a fan of Rain and people have dissed him but it doesn’t make me think any less of Rain and i’m sure he wouldn’t care.


Don’t let things bother you that aren’t worth the headache.

"receiving terrible and threatening comments and messages on my social media"
Ladies & gentlemen, this is when we know that the said person has no regrets for their wrong doings and is just victimizing themselves.


JUST NO, you should NEVER resort to threatening people simply because your angry about a comment they made this is beyond childish and awful if think about the psychological consequences

facts. kpop idols look girlish and act childish(#notall)

chinese, japanese, idonesian, korean looks very similar and practically unidentifiable for an external person. but this is just a general case but i think the hosts are just blind. the people mentioned in the video are one of the most handsome people on earth. especially sehun. are these comments on a bad taste, yes, but is it worth cursing at these people, NO. this what more do u expect from cult of kpop fans. not everybody ideal man looks the same. so if dont like chinese women is that xenophobia and racism.

That's an absolute normal reaction if you aren't used to seeing asian faces.

People seem to think it's like in Korea where western people are everythere, on products, ads, media, on streets, even in the bed.. but In the west you don't see asians anywhere so all they know about asians is stereotypes and when they first see them it's like seeing aliens.

The fans should be more understanding and should stop with the racism and hate.

I'd never be the type of person to bother leaving hate comments on her insta/twitter/ whatever and, more importantly, I strongly disapprove of people actually threatening her - you should never do that to anyone, no matter the reason.

But I definitely won't have any understanding for someone who is being racist, disrespectful and voicing their own ignorance in a judgemental and degrading way - not even, or especially not, for "humoristic" entertaining purposes. This was in no way a "normal" reaction. I think it's really messed up to consider something like this normal. Even if you are not familiar with another culture, you shouldn't approach it in such a disdaining manner.

You know what MY 'normal reaction' was on seeing Asian stars with reputations for being good-looking in Asia happens to have been?
OMG what beautiful men... These are what elves (ie TOLKIEN elves) would look like.
This, in the 60s.
So really, that's a pretty silly idea. And the people showing racism and hate are these TV personalities, not the fans.

It's a natural reaction for many ethnicities, they think some other ethnicities look "funny." But there's no excuse if you're on a TV program making condescending comments. If they belittled your ethnicity and gender in a public broadcast wouldn't you think the backlash was deserved?

This is to testify to the general public about a great herbal doctor who saved my wife from Fibroid, His name is Dr. Uduehi. My wife suffered fibroid with pelvic pain and heavy menstrual bleeding for 6 years and with miscarriages. I couldn't bear the pain and sufferings my wife was passing through so I have to confide in a friend about our predicaments, she gave me doctor Uduehi's contact and I did contacted him and after she took his medication she became cured and sound. The fibroid gone, no pelvic pain and menstrual bleeding anymore. You can reach him through: uduehiherbalcare@gmail.com phone/WhatsaPP: +2347084878384

the chinese comment was racist. The other comments were not.


Saying that they looked like women isn't really untrue. With all the makeup, some kpop stars do look rather feminine. that comment about "that thing" was rude, not racist.


That chinese comment though... Poor stuff from the people in that studio. Then again, Greece has had a problem with xenophobia for years.
