hoping to be Korea 's most progressive comedy show tackling issues such as politics seems like the forgot the don't be insensitive part

I wish there was a simple way to make them understand that it's not okay. I remember a post on tumblr once from someone who was either black, or korean, can't remember at this moment. They were talking about how (most) of the time when this happens in Korea, they think they're honoring people. And they don't realize that worldwide that's not how you show respect to someone you admire. Does this make any sense? I haven't been to bed yet.

maybe it's that whole "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery" thing

A Ron Swanson stare is exactly what everyone is doing to their screen right now and most of them don't even know it.

Painfully unfunny. And I don't remember anyone with dreadlocks in Dreamgirls so they really are just being incredibly ignorant and stupid.

Ugh why Korea why. This is horribly unfunny

Oi. Just oi. The only it may stop is if one of their precious hallyu stars gets asked about it by international media, and let's be honest....most international media just doesn't care since it is a small population of people that this offends.

Yoon Mirae tweeted about it, doesn't seem like her tweets got much attention, though.
