Choi Si-won threatened over retweet



When Super Junior’s Choi Si-won put his two cents in about the Dokdo islets dispute, he probably had no idea that his welfare would be at stake.

On Aug. 10, Choi retweeted a post by the Blue House that read, “There is no doubt that Dokdo is our territory. We should defend it as if our lives depend on it.”

Cyzo Woman, a Japanese blog, reported on the matter, accusing Choi of being a “political entertainer” who had previously made fun of the Japanese pronunciation of “kimchi.”



“In our country we say ‘kimchi’ not ‘kimuchi,’?” Cyzo Woman quoted Choi as previously saying.

“It’s true that it’s a debated topic, but should he have made such a comment?” one Japanese netizen asked. Another said, “Let’s egg him during a fan meet.”

On Friday, some protesters did indeed turn up at a Super Junior fan meet in Yokohoma with eggs. Others attended with placards that read “Takashima,” referring to the name Japanese use for the islets.

A drama featuring actor Song Il-guk was also canceled in Japan after he swam to the Dokdo islets.

Omona, should Siwon + his papa stay off of twitter? & remember the last time someone attempted to throw eggs?

I'm not a very big fan of sunny-side up eggs....is it just me?
I just don't like eating the yolk part.

konichiwacobra 29th-Aug-2012 05:08 am (UTC)
no one wins when these korean idols who are trying to work in japan comment on those islands in that sea. it's such a lose-lose. but whatever.

i hate eggs, but they're easy protein when I'm too lazy to cook something more involved.
tegomanhoe 29th-Aug-2012 05:09 am (UTC)
none of them should stop tweeting and the eggs should be kept inside a store or your kitchen.
luvey 29th-Aug-2012 05:12 am (UTC)
My vote goes here

i have issues with hard boiled eggs. sunny side up!
reelrecnizereel 29th-Aug-2012 05:11 am (UTC)
he can tweet all day I find him entertaining, just as long as he doesn't mess SM's money up or Lee soo Man will tear that ass up.
lysblack 29th-Aug-2012 05:12 am (UTC)
you know, i like siwon better when he's with his mouth closed and being hot.

i hate when he opens his mouth and starts to preach, something tells me if he was born as an american he would be a republican.
scubajr 29th-Aug-2012 05:18 am (UTC)
Definitely a republican.
gacchiri 29th-Aug-2012 05:12 am (UTC)
Celebs and affiliated should know better and watch what they say. Twitter brings out the crazy in people. Too many examples to list tbh
dippz 29th-Aug-2012 05:15 am (UTC)
Both should should shut the fuck up.....

I prefer hard boiled eggs so hopefully maybe they'll get hit hard enough and suffer from permanent amnesia......
hisjulliet 29th-Aug-2012 05:15 am (UTC)
I think it's too late for him now.
kazu_kumaguro 29th-Aug-2012 05:20 am (UTC)
scrambled egg is the best!
the_erotomanic 29th-Aug-2012 05:20 am (UTC)
meh. :o\

i wish i know how to poach eggs like martha stewart.
luvey 29th-Aug-2012 05:21 am (UTC)
celebs are people first. they have opinions like anyone else. tweet away. some will agree, and some won't. it's just life.

but guess what, you don't like it move on to someone else who's opinion you do like. while the celeb has to be prepared for backlash from people who do disagree and can't move on.


....i really want Eggs Benedict

I just think that it's better for him not to say anything when Suju is working and getting money from Japan.

and idk, I think rather than about the islands themselves, it's more about political matter, like for Korean it's like don't give anything to the evil Japanese anymore! or sth like that.
I mean, no one actually lives there.
kazu_kumaguro 29th-Aug-2012 05:22 am (UTC)
wait, so did they get egged?
but I seriously egging people is such a waste of food/resource, I mean one pack of egg can last me for around a week (a poor international student)
carmine_pink 29th-Aug-2012 06:00 am (UTC)
some protesters did indeed turn up at a Super Junior fan meet in Yokohoma with eggs.

Funny how they didn't mention throwing the eggs, just bringing them. Perhaps they used it to make Yesung's birthday cake or something.
chibiyunie 29th-Aug-2012 05:29 am (UTC)
I like me eggs hard boiled <3
I don't like the white, so I always end up only eating the yellow part, which is so tasty when my egg is hard boiled. *suddenly hungry*

lazmy 29th-Aug-2012 05:32 am (UTC)
eggs are so gross
lelouchikaru 29th-Aug-2012 08:46 am (UTC)
when thrown at people. I remember the time when I was thrown with eggs in high school... guess what happened.
ari_meh 29th-Aug-2012 05:33 am (UTC)
all this egg talk made me hungry.
julietislimited 29th-Aug-2012 05:39 am (UTC)
ikr? I'm starving all of a sudden.
kwaiirosesilent 29th-Aug-2012 05:43 am (UTC)
wow. sad to see that something he just RT'd, not even posted on is own, is getting so much backlash after all the love he's previously expressed for Japan -_-

as for eggs, I can't do the whites when it's fried/sunny-side up...the texture grosses me out. I have an unhealthy preference for the yolks in general :/

I don't have enough information to have a personal opinion on the Dokdo islands, so whatever Shiwon's opinion is, I don't care. I don't dislike him for it, but I think it was a stupid move as an idol. It' snot him just making a controversial statement. It's him making a statement against Japan and having all his Japanese fans rethink whether oppa actually thinks they're scum.

There are very extreme feelings that come with voicing an opinion about the Dokdo islands, so Shiwon only managed to shake up a bit of his fanbase rather than making any awe-inspiring comment or adding something new to the debate. Knowing that, he should've just kept it to himself.
hai_no_souretsu 29th-Aug-2012 07:28 am (UTC)
Perfect comment.

My country is having un-ending dispute over 4 islands with Japan, and even though I studied history well in school and uni, I still think that making statements about controversial political matters would require much more academic knowledge and also an unbiased point of view. It's very dumb and shallow to say "Dokdo belongs to Korea" just because you're a korean or "Kuril islands are russian territory" because you're russian.
And I don't think Siwon know enough and un-biased enough to make statements on such matter, so yeah, it was very stupid to the point that I wished for a moment that SM should ban him from twitter. ((

It's him making a statement against Japan and having all his Japanese fans rethink whether oppa actually thinks they're scum.
I hope japanese elfs would be mature about it and not think "oppa despises us" or something like that. Actually, based on my experience in Japan, common people are usually don't care about islands - the only couple of times I was asked about them, I gave my thoughts on it and we had a nice discussion about how politicians from both russian and japanese sides are trying to manipulate public opinion.

This is why Kara is infinitely superior to Siwon in every way. They kept it cute and didn't let themselves get pulled into any shit.
kazu_kumaguro 29th-Aug-2012 07:04 am (UTC)
you mean gyuri
the_erotomanic 29th-Aug-2012 06:11 am (UTC)
ot, but i love siwon's hair in that pic (and his chest, and that shirt, and his muscles). how can i get to style my hair like that?
asnindie 29th-Aug-2012 03:02 pm (UTC)
Some volumising hair mousse and a blow drier.
krissasaur 29th-Aug-2012 06:12 am (UTC)
Can we just like... bomb Dokdo??? So it like... sinks or like... disappears... and like... doesn't exist anymore... so that there is one less thing to argue about??!? God damn I am so sick of this shit.

Reminds me of shirt design I saw in this post about 4 years ago.

originaru 29th-Aug-2012 06:21 am (UTC)
Sunny side up or soft poached so I can dip my toast in the yolk om nom nom. But I enjoy scrambled eggs as well and soft boiled ones, lol. WHO AM I KIDDING, I LOVE EGGS. I'LL EAT EM ANYWAY.
