South Korea's Independence day recently happened and Block B's P.O was under fire due to his wardrobe. Many citizens noticed that he was wearing a Japanese sweater/top and felt offended and criticized him for this incident. The independence day was South Korea's history of beign free from Japan. I know history is very important and many people suffered to get to where they are right now. P.O and the Seven Season staff already apologize. but things kind of went out of control.
I just knew Koreaboo was going to write an article about this, but the comment section got crazy.
I was mad and I understood them at the same time that they felt offended, and I don't know the history of Korea, but look at it in this way... In Zico's 'Tough Cookie' music video, he wore a jacket with the Confederate flag on it. In which many people took that as offensive because of the history behind it. After everybody talked about it and was on the news, nobody told him to apologize but he did, and many understood that... Is not like Americans are asking him, "for your mistake go and kill yourself", or they don't go criticizing him every time they see him, actually many are cool about the whole situation that happened. Now, this situation is similar to what Zico went through I know many people feel offended now, but you will see that this will all fade, just like Zico's case, and no I'm not trying to bring that topic again, I'm just giving my point of view. Many artists go through wardrobe malfunctions all the time, and stylists need to make sure that the artist are wearing the right thing so these kind of things don't happened again, and if this was in his closet, the stylist STILL needs to check what the artist is wearing before an accident happens. Heck, I'm not even American (but legally in the U.S.) and when I was in school and it was "Cinco de Mayo" many of my classmates (that are Americans) wore sombreros and Mexican stuff such as ponchos, many thought that it was Mexico's independence day, and that's why they were wearing those stuff, and I never got offended to that because I knew that they DIDN'T KNOW or DIDN'T KNOW IT WAS GOING TO AFFECT PEOPLE! The point is, people are gonna make mistakes and but is not the mistakes that defines a person but who they are... Anyways, there's always going to be criticism, but we as people need to over look that, and look for what's ahead, and not look at the negative part, because if we do, we'll stay in the past and not move forward. What do you guys think? You think he did it on purpose or was it a solid mistake?
