Why do J-Internet users hate that LE SSERAFIM Kim Chaewon is using Dokdo?

After the video suddenly hit Japanese netizens, many quickly described Kim Chaewon as anti-Japanese. This is because the beauty brand is named after the Doko Islands, which have long been the center of a long-standing dispute between South Korea and Japan.

For 300 years, the Dokdo Islands have been the center of diplomatic strife between two nations as both consider the Dokdo Islands to be part of their respective countries.

“Kim Garam is better than Kim Chaewon who uses Dokdo products.”

“Her use of Dokdo products, with Japanese in her group, is reckless.”

“She crossed the border using Dokdo products. By using it, it supports the sale of this product. “

However, Korean fans quickly stood up for Kim Chaewon. Many believed that since she was Korean, it was normal to use Korean products. Many criticized haters for questioning something less.

Comments from Korean Internet users read:

She is Korean. What’s wrong with using products with the name of the Korean land? “

“She is Korean using a Korean product.”

“She doesn’t need Japanese fans. He has us.

“They make a problem with everything.”
