“Think twice before you act.”
On June 6th, TREASURE Jihoon shared a video of the Japanese band RADWIMPS’ song “Ms. Phenomenal” on the fan community Weverse. It is the OST of the Japanese movie “The Last Ten Years.”
In response to Jihoon’s post, netizens claim that it was inappropriate to share a Japanese song on Korea’s Memorial Day.
Netizens commented, “Even if the song is good, shouldn’t he have checked the date?“, “He should have restrained himself from uploading, considering the sensitivity of the day,” “Don’t you have any respect for Memorial Day?“, and so on.
Others expressed anger, saying, “Doesn’t he know what day June 6th is?“, “Is creating controversies his hobby?“, “Think twice before you act,” “He should become a Japanese citizen,” and more.
On the other hand, there are also reactions defending Jihoon such as, “There is no direct connection between Memorial Day and Japan,” “He probably just shared the song because he likes it,” “Just be more cautious next time,” and so on.
In the end, Jihoon deleted the post. He has not made any further statements.
