Curious to Know...

I'd be interested to know ...

If the Korean media is approaching Jae-beom's quitting 2PM due to hyper-nationalist, knee-jerk Netizens, in the same way these thoughtful Korea Times articles are. (one) (two).

Because it's all well and good if they're saying this in English, but if they're saying this in Korean, then that's... really interesting.

I was hoping JB would give a big fuck-you a la Eminem to the Korean media and pinheads who got all worked up about nothing. But he's just a kid so I don't blame him for running away from all that mob violence with his tail between his legs.

All in all, I think this whole "controversy" is actually good for JB and the Korean hip-hop scene in the sense that 1) it was a good character-builiding exercise for the kid 2) we just might see some real bad-as hostility in his music in the future instead of the usual candy-ass shit from other Korean hip-hop stars.

If it takes a confused kyopo saying what he really thinks to make Koreans realize that perhaps they need to try to see things from a different point of view, so be it.
