PostSubject: South Korea bans Hetalia    Sat Dec 25, 2010 9:27 pm

I as a Korean and a lover of history, I find Hetalia as a huge insult. I honestly don't understand why people like it. But what really blows my mind is that Korea is the only country that unanimously hates Hetalia. So much that the country banned the anime / manga from ever approaching Korean stores. Yet people complain and hate Korea for doing so.

It's more of because they overreacted a bit.

I understand banning it and all, but broadcasting it on TV and declaring it a national crime? To me, it seems too much (And I read somewhere that some Koreans even planned to bomb the creator or something. Though I can't verify if it's legit or not, if it is... extreme much?)

(... actually, considering how the creator portrays Korea here, it's actually quite an improvement from how Japanese mangakas usually portray Koreans.)

You mean like how Koreans are never in Japanese animes.

Also the bombing is probably just a rumor. There is no need to go as far as to killing someone.

Well, that's true. Koreans have appeared here and there in some Japanese stuff, but you don't really see them in anime.

In manga, however... I won't say it's entirely true. There is another manga, and it's called Manga Kenkanryu. It's disgusting. Compare it to Hetalia, I'll leave you to judge which is worse.

It probably is. The one site that had actual working links to things that might back up the bombing thing is gone.

I don't really think they could be considered overreacting. I mean, that's what a lot of fans say, but they have no idea of the history and relationship of Korea and Japan, and Hetalia doesn't help that one bit. it's not that Korea was overreacting, it's that people don't understand Korea, mainly cuz they're stuck on Japanese culture.

And its because of that, people think that Koreans are complete assholes when it comes to anything that is Japanese. If that's true why do so many Koreans loves other Japanese animes, like Gundam, One Piece, Detective Conan and etc.

yes anyone who thinks poorly of Korea should be looked down on, it's ridiculous. Koreans don't hate Japanese, just the government for not having apologized still, and they try to make Koreans seem to be at fault for Japans rape and genocide of Korea to get out of blame. however Japan has no reason to hate Koreans, but there are some who do anyway, because of propaganda. I feel as though hetalia is a part of this propaganda as well. only it reaches out further than Japan. which is disasterous.

Now more people are going to hate Korea. Of course most of them would be wannabe Japanese otakus or obsessive fans who can't seem to understand that Japan isn't the great country that they believe and that Korea is nothing. Yet I really wish people to be more interested in Korean culture, instead of just thinking that Japan is practically all of Asia. I found a magazine about places that are worth going in Asia and Korea wasn't even mentioned! It wasn't even on the map! I know may sound like some preachy Korean guy who wants people to like Korea, but really it is a problem when people think that Japan is the single greatest country in the world! Japan did horrible things as did Korea. No country is the greatest country in the world! We all have our flaws and strong points.

A have a friend who is Korean, so I learn about her culture a lot of the time. Smile She used to live there and still visits there so... I get pretty defensive of people who speak against it. I have a problem with stereotypes in general, I personally think that this show should be banned if not in more places, completely banned. >_> It's such a childish thing and people think those of us that are upset about it are being too sensitive...

I think you should be able to express your liking and disliking of something freely. If people hate what's going on Hetalia, they should be able to express it. Rolling Eyes I don't understand why it's a hard concept for people. Thick skulls? Is there any valid excuse... >_>

I think different cultures are beautiful and interesting, and shouldn't be made fun of. :I Especially what they did to Korea. . . FAIL on so many levels. You can't just judge people so easily because of their past, or present. Not every single damn person acts the same way, for the love of Christ. <=/

Seriously, the fans can say that the jokes / insults are harmless and has no negative impact on anyone, but once people start saying what they don't like about it. The fans (not all of them of course) throw a fit! So what? We're not allowed to say that this show can be insulting?! While it's ok for the fans to make fun of the nations?! We have fans who have made the Nazi salute as their signature sign now!

So yeah, I would love to see a Hetalia fan go up to someone who fought during WWII, a person who is or knows someone who is Jewish and any anti Nazi group and do their new salute. Let's see what happens. Yet Fans say that Koreans are now being childish? How about looking at the point of views of the victims for once.
