CBS re-uploads BTS's 'The Korean Pop Sensation' interview after editing out 'Sea of Japan'

AKP STAFF

On April 23, CBS Sunday Morning re-posted their full interview with BTS titled 'The Korean Pop Sensation' via its official YouTube channel. 

The interview clip was previously posted on CBS Sunday Morning's channel back on April 21; however, it seems the footage was re-uploaded today after editing out the words "Sea of Japan" from a map of the Korean peninsula, which appears in the video at approximately ~1:40. 


The issue likely arose due to the fact that there is an ongoing dispute regarding the correct name of this body of water, which is labeled as "Sea of Japan" on most Western world maps. Koreans believe that the term "Sea of Japan" was first used to describe the body of water during Japanese imperialistic rule of Korea, and before this time, the sea was historically called the "East Sea"

That was a conscientious move on CBS' part.
