The ballad of my respect level for Jang Geun Suk, portrayed in real time as I read the article.
Actor Jang Geun Suk has once again fallen victim to anti-Hallyu media outlets in Japan, upsetting his many fans.
Aw shit, sucks to get a raw deal from the fucking media.
On February 17th, one media outlet reported, “Last August, Jang Geun Suk was asked what he would like to eat in Japan and his response ‘Aoi Sola‘ is causing quite the controversy.”
YES! GODDAMN WHAT A FUCKING AWESOME BAUCE ASS ANSWER!
My thoughts on him just went from, “comes off as an arrogant prick that isn’t even that good at anything” to “cool horny prick that faps to JAV“.
They sourced their information from a press release reported by anti-Hallyu Japanese media outlets without confirming with Jang Geun Suk’s representatives, making it seem like the actor misspoke.
Jang Geun Suk’s agency spoke with OSEN and stated, “Because Jang Geun Suk is a Hallyu star, there are a lot of these occurrences that take place in both China and Japan.”
“It isn’t the first time that something like this has happened and we have been ignoring it for the most part,” they continued with a deep sigh. “Jang Geun Suk is working really hard. If the anti-Hallyu outlets want to criticize him, we can’t do anything about that, but the fact that the Korean media would report stories that haven’t been proven to be true is really upsetting.”
The video of the actual interview that took place in Japan was revealed to the public, proving the press releases as false. When asked what he would like to eat in Japan, Jang Geun Suk clearly answered, “Sushi,” rather than AV Star Aoi Sola.
Well that’s … disappointing.
Anti-Hallyu Wave site? Shit, more like Pro-Hallyu Wave site, because that was the only thing he has ever done that has made me want to like him.
As an aside, did anybody even hear of this story until the Korean media reported on it? I didn’t, so isn’t it a bit funny that a Korean media report criticizing a Japanese media report has a quote criticizing the Korean media and the only reason anybody knows about this is because … the Korean media decided to cover it?
It’s like killing two birds with one stone, acknowledging the failure of the Korean media by the Korean media while they call out the Japanese media for shenanigans.
Glorious, it’s so glorious.
