Lovelyz’s Yein & Jiae get criticized by Japanese netz for joking about a radioactive mosquito

Due to a V Live broadcast that recently re-emerged, Lovelyz members Yein and Jiae are going viral in Japan for the wrong reasons.

Basically, they’re getting lit up for joking about a radioactive mosquito.

The reason for Japanese netizens taking offense is not only the connection here between radioactivity and the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but also more recently the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster.

The current fan defense (because there always is one) is that she was referring to the mosquito like it was the spider that bit Peter Parker in ‘Spider-Man‘. However, given how common it is in Korea to mock Japan for its past radioactive events, the reaction is understandable from the Japanese and this doesn’t look great at the moment for Lovelyz.
