Former KARA Member Jiyoung Gets Criticized for Playing a Japanese Character in a Drama


1: れいおφ ★@\(^o^)/ 2015/07/14(火) 11:16:56.68 ID:???*.net
Starting from the 24th Jiyoung will play a Japanese character in the Tele Asa drama "Tamiou."
About the role she has said: 
"Up until now I don't think there has been any Korean person who has played a Japanese person. My Japanese role will broaden the range of my activities from now on."
"I want to show the image of myself doing my best. With this drama as a start, I want to tackle other roles."

About this, various Korean users have expressed opinions on the matter. 
*Note: The following are English translations of comments that were translated from Korean to Japanese. Some meaning may be lost in the process since these are the translation, of a translation. 

"I have no interest in Japan. Because she abandoned Korea and went to Japan, she has become a Japanese person hasn't she?"
"Is playing a Japanese role something to be that proud of? Does she know why she's the first? No one wants to do a Japanese role"

"Her heart is already Japanese. How sad"
"This means that she won't return to Korean anymore..."
"Her face and her aura has thoroughly become Japanese"

"No matter how much money you receive, there are lines that cannot be crossed. A Japanese role is out of the question!"
"She said she is the first Korean to play a Japanese role? I can only think that she's trying to pick a fight with Koreans"
"Does she really hate Korea that much? Become naturalized in Japan, and don't come to Korea again"
"Why is she being criticized just for saying that she's playing a Japanese person? I am embarrassed that those people are Korean just like myself"
"Why Japan? I don't have any prejudice against Japan but I am curious as to why Japan of all places"

The title Tamio itself is suspicious

5: 名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/ 2015/07/14(火) 11:18:46.83
KARA who were only popular in Japan in the first place


11: 名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/ 2015/07/14(火) 11:19:50.33
They have popularity in Japan?

16: 名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/ 2015/07/14(火) 11:20:13.03
She has thought that pretending to be a Japanese person in a different country is a natural act as a Korean

17: 名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/ 2015/07/14(火) 11:20:41.37
She doesn't have any intention of returning over there does she

19: 名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/ 2015/07/14(火) 11:21:16.91
It seems that she will become naturalized around next year
She must have some very bad memories of her home country

20: 名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/ 2015/07/14(火) 11:21:20.50
I think this girl will get married to a Japanese person and get naturalized
She likes Japan that much

I don't know though

27: 名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/ 2015/07/14(火) 11:22:42.31
Among the members of Kara  about what position would the one named Jiyoung be in terms of looks?


30: 名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/ 2015/07/14(火) 11:23:12.39
"Why Japan? I don't have any prejudice against Japan but I am curious as to why Japan of all places"

In this comment everything about Koreans is summarized

34: 名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/ 2015/07/14(火) 11:24:09.44
To Japanese people and to Korean people former KARA members have no merit

41: 名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/ 2015/07/14(火) 11:25:19.07
We have come to be a country full of anti-Koreans who have abandoned the country that loves them

55: 名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/ 2015/07/14(火) 11:27:25.69
Conversely I kind of have come to want to support this Chon* nonetheless?
*Derogatory term for Koreans



57: 名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/ 2015/07/14(火) 11:27:29.45
This is racist right?!

60: 名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/ 2015/07/14(火) 11:28:08.82
Korea is too scary  They are too lacking in flexibility
I feel sorry this girl who worked hard to learn Japanese

65: 名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/ 2015/07/14(火) 11:29:32.69
I saw her in Pussama for the first time and got a good impression of her

73: 名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/ 2015/07/14(火) 11:31:33.53
Choi Hong-man played a Japanese person you know



80: 名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/ 2015/07/14(火) 11:33:26.76
It's normal to play a Japanese role in a Japanese drama don't you think
If she limits herself to foreign characters and outcast characters she will not be able to work anymore

How anti-Japanese wwwwwwwww

96: 名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/ 2015/07/14(火) 11:36:52.89
"She said she is the first Korean to play a Japanese role? I can only think that she's trying to pick a fight with Koreans"

We find this pretty unpleasant too though www

106: 名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/ 2015/07/14(火) 11:38:12.50 ID:/
I will protect Jiyoung!

116: 名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/ 2015/07/14(火) 11:41:29.35 ID:v/
I can't forget it even now! That wooden performance as Yukime

122: 名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/ 2015/07/14(火) 11:42:12.98
I don't think anything about her playing a Japanese person but
If she does something bad, gets arrested and says "I'm Japanese" then I can't accept that

148: 名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/ 2015/07/14(火) 11:47:04.02
Please just support Jiyoung


155: 名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/ 2015/07/14(火) 11:48:04.96
Let's support her. I will give her support

177: 名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/ 2015/07/14(火) 11:54:37.56
I don't know the necessity of playing a Japanese role but
If she's not against Japan then hmm go for it

181: 名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/ 2015/07/14(火) 11:55:12.07
Seung Yeon-chan come to Japan too


234: 名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/ 2015/07/14(火) 12:05:20.53
Now you have no other choice but to become my wife, Jiyoung-chan. I'll wait for you

291: 名無しさん@恐縮です@\(^o^)/ 2015/07/14(火) 12:19:29.81
She is criticized in her home country, she is disliked in Japan, I really think she has a strong mentality
