Controversy Over Tanjirou Kimetsu no Yaiba Earrings in South Korea Continues

Although Kimetsu no Yaiba has been named the most popular anime at the moment, it is undeniable that there is a lot of controversy that has occurred as long as its popularity continues to peak, especially in South Korea. The origin was triggered by a poster plastered on the Netflix platform showing the original design of Tanjirou wearing earrings in the form of the Rising Sun symbol. Unexpectedly, this caused some fans to get angry and accused this franchise of representing Japanese imperialism.

Controversy Over Tanjirou Kimetsu no Yaiba Earrings in South Korea Continues

Reporting from an article published by Yahoo! News Japan, published that “the controversy over the Tanjirou earrings from Kimetsu no Yaiba continues to increase in South Korea. So what is Netflix's response as the trigger for this case? ”.

Kimetsu no Yaiba: Mugen Train has sold over one million tickets just seven days after its release in South Korea, but why is it that anti-Japanese nationalists only raised concerns regarding Tanjirou's earrings in the final days after the film's release. Both Netflix and the theater chain gave in to the pressure and started editing audiovisual content. However, that did not stop South Korean nationalists, who are now increasingly accusing Kimetsu no Yaiba of an "ultra-right movement" that supported Japanese crimes of the previous generation. "

“The anti-Japanese mob has shown that Kimetsu no Yaiba intentionally offended the symbol 'Flag of the Rising Sun' through Tanjirou's earrings. As these problems continued to escalate, South Korean producers had to do audiovisual editing and modify the design of Tanjirou earrings. This modified version will not be broadcast or projected outside South Korea." [post_ads]

On the other hand, Netflix has included the Kimetsu no Yaiba anime with 26 episodes in its catalog in South Korea last month. However, when the poster featured a photo of Tanjirou wearing his earrings, the community immediately exploded and criticized the platform.

The fact is that Netflix is ​​the only streaming site in South Korea that broadcasts an unmodified version of Kimetsu no Yaiba. Therefore, many Japanese and South Korean fans were excited. "Why do they use the original design when there was already a modified version before, and they know it will cause controversy?" This is considered by some South Koreans as an insult to their history, "Netflix doesn't really care about the feelings of South Korean people, they just want money," said some furious fans.

As a result of all this, Netflix started to correct its mistake by turning the previously unmodified Tanjirou earring poster into a modified one. A major media outlet in the country asked Netflix for their opinion on the matter, but they did not get any response. [post_ads_2]
