Something apparently happened with Ikon. Apparently they mocked or did an impression of momo from twice and she is Japanese, and even some Koreans are upset with it. They mocked her voice on some radio show or something. I know that people have the right to be upset but now hate is starting to emerge that's really not needed..I don't think they were trying to be offensive though I have not seen the video and I don't want to honestly. I am not even sure if it was all of them, I think BI&June?
But what was the impression though? Like did they say something about Japanese people or did they just do an impression of her because B.I. has BEEN doing impressions of girl group members, particularly Twice because he’s a fan of them. He’s been talking about them alot. From what you’ve told me it sounds like people (fans of twice) are mad at the impression not because it was racist/xenophobic (I don’t even think Korean people can be xenophobic to Japanese people given their history) but because they did an impression of the member. this happened before when Jinhwan fell on stage during “Me Gustas Tu” and apparently it was “mocking” the group who sung that when they fell on stage.
I’d have to hear about this but from what you explained it sounds like typical fandom drama but of course it seems like a lot of context is being left out here so I don’t know.
