New Jeans Danielle‘s “Chinese New Year” comments are causing further controversy in Korea.

Professor Seo Kyung-deok of Sungshin Women’s University recently launched a campaign to mark ‘Seollal’ as ‘Lunar New Year’ globally instead of ‘Chinese New Year.’ Following Danielle’s comments, Professor Seo pointed out on his SNS, “It’s a pity that ‘Lunar New Year’ is marked as ‘Chinese New Year’ even in official stamps issued by the United Nations and global companies like Apple and Nike. Since Lunar New Year is celebrated by various Asian countries like Korea, Vietnam, and Philippines, it’s only right that we change it to Lunar New Year. We must correct this to introduce the universal culture of Asia to the world and not like China’s own.”

However, Chinese netizens rushed to Professor Seo’s SNS and launched indiscriminate attacks in the comments and leaked DMs writing, “Korea is now stealing Chinese New Years Day..,” ” “New Years Day was invented by the Chinese,” and “Kill all Koreans..”

Meanwhile, Danielle has released an apology over her “Chinese New Year” comments.

  1. [+1,430, -36] This is exactly why we need to ban Chinese kids from our idol groups and exile all traitors from our country including any banjajangs and products from Korea!
  2. [+813, -24] Isn’t it necessary for these idols and celebs to have some basic sense to debut in the entertainment industry? Enough with the blind greed to make money and make sure they learn the basics!! I can’t tell if its ignorance or lack of interest at this point.. Why do we have to suffer from Chinese abuse in our country??! Their ancestors and roots are the issue, kick them out!
  3. [+717, -13] When I lived in the US, I hated the Lunar New Year because the schools and media all commonly referred to it as ‘Chinese New Year.’ This change will be great! Ban the ‘Chinese New Year’ term and lets go with Lunar New Year from now on.
  4. [+172, -10] Foreigner
  5. [+104, -3] These idol agencies need to start providing basic history lessons instead of focusing only on dance. And stop hiring Chinese teachers!! I’ve yet to see a decent Chinese. I seriously can’t believe we have idols calling our Korean history a “short story” [Enhypen J scandal] and now Seollal as ‘Chinese New Year’ f*ck
  6. [+83, -3] No more mixed race kids or foreigners anywhere near the Kpop stage!! There are so many hard working kids in our country, start there for trainees. I can’t believe a Korean singer is putting out words like ‘Chinese New Year.’
  7. [+71, -1] Well the Chinese already have the China corona virus so.. 
  8. [+59, -2] This is why I could care less whether an idol is a visual if they have empty brains!!
  9. [+43, -2] Bang Si-hyuk already said to kick her but Min Hee-jin chose to let her debut.. and now look she’s already in a scandal
  10. [+41, -4] There is no hope for a stupid nugu like her.. 

What do you think?
