Recently a Filipino-American TikTok star shared a dance video where a tattoo of the infamous Rising Sun symbol could be seen on her arm. This outraged Korean netizens, some of whom escalated the incident into racist attacks on the Philippines. This lead to the #CancelKorea trend in the Philippines. For the first time ever, we actually conducted two street interviews in Seoul and Manila at the same time to get both sides of the story. Let’s hear what people had to say.
The opinions expressed in this video are those of individual interviewees alone and do not reflect the views of ASIAN BOSS or the general Filipino and South Korean population.
