In fact, if you look at the comments, there were many severe reactions such as “paper technology belongs to China and Korea only inherited Chinese paper technology, but they try to take away culture as if it were Korea’s own technology,” “Don’t steal culture,” “Why steal Chinese people’s?” and “papermaking belongs to China.”

Korean netizens who saw this were also angry and confronted. Korean fans said, “NewJeans only promoted the excellence of Hanji, and never claimed that Hanji was the world’s first paper,” and “Korea learned paper technology in China, but developed it, and Hanji is different from Chinese paper.”
