►►DBSK’s Jaejoong gets criticized for saying “Kimchi” wrong


As many of you may know, kimchi is Korea’s most popular dish. Though it’s just a side dish, it’s used for more than just food. People actually say kimchi when they pose for a picture, just like how Americans say cheese when they smile for the camera.

There’s however a lot of bad blood between Korea’s kimchi and Japan’s kimuchi.

Last year, Jung Woo Sung went through a hard time because he spelled kimchi as “kimuchi” on a Japanese program and got criticized by Koreans for it. He later on apologized for his “mistake.”

Now, TVXQ’s Jaejoong is going through the same controversy. While shooting for a magazine, a Japanese morning program came to interview him. While posing for a photo he yelled, “Kimuchi!” Koreans are now mad that he didn’t say kimchi.

Some fans are saying people should be more understanding since he is in Japan so it makes sense to say kimuchi. But other netizens said, “He should be more careful as a Korean artist.”

Netizens also pointed out that Se7en and BoA always make sure to say kimchi in other countries so Jaejoong should also do likewise.
