T-ara‘s Jiyeon managed to draw the anger of Japanese netizens because she ate fucking food out of a pot.
From about 0:50, the video pans to Ji-yeon sitting down to eat her finished meal when suddenly, for reasons unexplained, she removes the lid of the pot with one hand, plunges her chopsticks directly into the pot with the other, lifts up a mass of noodles and plops them down on the overturned lid as if it were a plate before transferring them into her cute little mouth.
BURN HER AT THE STAKE
Finally, as if to add insult to injury, while sharing her thoughts about the taste with viewers, Ji-yeon grasps her chopsticks firmly in hand and drives them into the cutting board, presumably to keep them aligned before returning for another barbaric bite from her primeval lid-plate.
OH GURL NOW YOU’RE GOING TO HELL
This, ladies and gentlemen, was enough to raise a furor among Japanese net users, who wasted no words in bashing Ji-yeon for her “disgusting table manners,” while others expressed a renewed appreciation of Japanese manners. One of the current top comments is supported by 15 “likes” for saying that “eating straight from the pot like this is worse than beggars going to receive their food rations.”
MODERN JAPANESE MANNERS LIKE BUMPING SCHOOLGIRLS ON CROWDED TRAINS WITH YOUR COCK
Unsurprisingly, many seem quick to condemn Ji-yeon’s eating style as indicative of South Korean manners in general, though there are a few who point out the futility of criticizing other cultures, but that Ji-yeon should be more conscious of how her status as an international pop idol reflects on South Korea’s image.
She should be more worried about whether or not Japanese people think she’s a cyclops from “Dragon Quest“.
OH SHIT YO
Motherfuckers please, I’ve seen Japanese women eat live baby eels flying out of a vagina, so they don’t exactly have the manners high ground here.
