I can taste the salty tears and hear the little Karen-shrieks of outrage from the far right faction of Japan but in this case it’s shooting itself in the own foot. I also need to say that China and South Korea do the exact same thing when their thin patriotic skins are offended so it’s a three Spiderman showdown between them all the time. K-ent is reporting that top South Korean actor Hyun Bin, who is also one of the most popular K-actors in Japan, is being actively disinvited to fan meetings being scheduled next year in 2023. It’s been a busy year of K-stars holding fan meetings in Japan, the most recent being Park Eun Bin and Kang Ki Young after their hit drama Extraordinary Attorney Woo. Reportedly the HAND to Hyun Bin is due to him accepting the lead role in upcoming K-movie Harbin where he plays the real life historical activist figure of An Jung Geun who assassinated the first Prime Minister of Japan Ito Hirobumi at the Harbin railway station and afterwards yelled out for Korean independence from Japan and Russia. You go dude! He was later executed by the Japanese but obvious the two countries see him very differently as he was awarded the highest medal of honor by the Korean government posthumously. Anyhoo, I don’t think Binnie cares either way.
