If China doesn't want their film shown, even if it is not a formal request, for whatever reason (even if political), then the Tokyo Film Festival needs to respect that decision.

This article is hilarious and is very typical of Japanese hubris. It states that "JAPAN's" indifference riles "S KOREA." As in, the entirety of Japan riles the entirety of S Korea. All I see in the article is evidence of one misguided, shallow, and stupid SKorean man, Han Koo-Hyun, who is waging a solo campaign against the infinite numbers of Japanese youtube/blog trolls with regards to their dislike of Gangnam Style/SK in general. Now I will be the first to admit that I can't stand Gangnam Style myself and just don't get the hype about it. However, to suggest that Japan's opinion matters at all with regards to SK pop culture, politics, whatever, is laughable. This article's headline is totally misleading. It should say "Japanese Youtube and Blog nationalists' dislike of Gangnam Style and anything Korean riles Han Koo-Hyun." That would be accurate. Don't think your opinion matters, Japanese netizens, and certainly, don't flatter yourselves. If you don't like Gangnam Style or SK, who gives a rat's ---? That's fine with me.
