[Abnormal Summit Ep.17] Discusses happiness, Ausniel's withdrawal, new Japan rep, massive criticisms

(Kimigayo is a national anthem of Japan that's never supposed to play in Korea due to its association with the history of Japanese imperialism. In this episode, Kimigayo was played when the Japan rep was talking.)

1. [+8646, -109] Today's broadcast reminded me of what Shin Hae Chul said. How happiness is more important than the result of achieving a dream. Even though the wish of everyone being happy is too unrealistic, I want everybody to be happy. Australian Daniel who's leaving, Shin Hae Chul who's leaving further, and everyone else to be happy.

2. [+6269, -112] Ho Soonwook, study hard, come back to Korea, and come back on Abnormal Summit!!

3. [+6167, -66] It was sad... It's good to see that he had a goal of studying

4. [+4940, -168] Aussie child Soonwook-ah, you'll comeback, right?? We'll wait for you... <3

5. [+4336, -77] Ah ㅠㅠ Daniel, please come back next time

1. [+468, -23] But I thought he was gonna come back to G11? Why did he ask to be a guest one day ㅠㅠ I liked Soonwook Ausniel!

2. [+442, -28] I guess he wanted to pursue studying after seeing the members! It was cute how he calmly said his opinions... Please come back after studying hard in your hometown! Farewell to Daniel who has a weak mind

3. [+383, -21] I was sad when Ausniel was saying his farewell statement... Please come back after finishing your studies in Australia~ But the Lebanon guy's face was revealed when Enes was talking in the preview ㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+49, -2] The kids who are defending over the Kimigayo controversy (because there must be no adults who are defending this) must have not paid attention in their history class. I'll explain this for the kids who are saying "it's a fun show so why does it need to be cancelled~ Kimigayo is only a national anthem" 

If I were to explain the meaning of the anthem, The broadcast basically played a song that worshiped the times where they were raping your friends, dongsaengs, and everyone, stabbing babies, spinning them and taking pictures, forcing the children to get on the plane and write death wishes, making them jump into the sea and making their bodies unsearchable, the students couldn't attend school and had to eat grass, and the comfort women had to serve 80 Japanese soldiers a day. Those fucking Japanese collaborators played the song on the broadcast. It's equivalent to wanting your friends and families get raped. It's not just a matter of cancelling the show, the whole broadcast station might disappear... It won't even be enough if they get quartered at Myungdong

5. [+47, -1] I never thought I would hear Kimigayo on our broadcast in my life. This is a fucking honor. The crazy staff assholes, it's problematic if they knew it. It's even more problematic if they didn't know what they were doing. How is this any different from playing a Nazi song for Gerniel in front of Robin and Julian? Crazy jerks

1. [+302, -12] Staff!!!!! Hurry up and clarify Kimigayo. How can a Korean broadcast play a song that worships imperialism?

2. [+266, -79] Zhang Yuan changed the negative image of Chinese... he's cool...

3. [+251, -16] Soon enough, the parents in our country will start educating the same thing to their kids. There are articles where those who helped women in rape situations get arrested because the victims don't speak up. It'll be the same with China's situation

4. [+30, -1] The viewers are raging over the website because of Kimigayo but I don't see a single article

5. [+21, -0] A broadcast where they played Kimigayo for the very first time after the independence

티브이데일리 포토


1. [+936, -20] Ugh, the Korean broadcast even plays Kimigayo now... Cho Hye Ryun was hated to death when she sang along Kimigayo on a Japanese broadcast... And now our country even plays it

2. [+840, -25] Ah... I enjoyed the show so much... I'm so disappointed. Even at the sport matches, they only have the casters talking and mute the anthem... Staff, isn't this too much? This won't be over by just apologizing, seriously...

3. [+832, -88] Cancel this show. Playing Kimigayo on our broadcast? Are they out of their mind? This is my first time of seeing such a thing in my life. Release an apology to the nation and cancel the show

4. [+135, -8] This is not just 'the demands of cancelling the show', they have to cancel it. This was the show I liked the most but despite my love for the members, I'm so embarrassed and enraged by Kimigayo playing on the broadcast. I'm even more pissed at their nonsense apology

5. [+132, -1] The first broadcast to play Kimigayo after the independence

6. [+111, -1] Kimigayo was a song that the Japanese forced Koreans to sing to brainwash them. Sun Yang had also showed discomfort towards it and they don't let this play at the Olympics. It's so scary how the Japanese imperialism gets shown on the broadcast
