Just shave it already.

Or trying to stir the pot?

So Harris just needs to be knifed while in SK to be liked? Good to know.

So shave that ridiculous thing. He didn’t have it when he was in the Navy, why now?

Funny how SK likes to repeatedly demand money from other countries but doesn't like money being repeatedly demanded from them.

A stupid Trump-like obstinacy. An ambassador of any sense, once the mustache becomes newsworthy, immediately shaves it off (preferably with a news crew nearby) and announces "This is evidence of my commitment not to let small matters get in the way of our relationship!"

Convert a loss into a win. An ambassador who doesn't, doesn't know how to defuse an issue or makes himself central SHOULD get fired. The countries relationship is, or should be foremost. Not the ambassador's grooming habits. If they distract, or are culturally controversial, he should do whatever it takes to remove the distraction.

Trump’s demands for a large increase in Seoul’s payment for the U.S. military deployment prompted many South Koreans to question whether the United States is still a trustworthy ally.

If they don't want to pay up, let's leave.

How about the Koreans grow up? Nah...

Interesting that the most rabid anti-Japan and anti-US South Koreans are also North Korea and President Moon supporters.
