0202 – Points of View from Jerusalem


"A Korean actor [1] at Queen Alia Airport in Jordan – just embarrassing!
What do you think? Is this the culture of Arabs?!"

-Beit Hanina – Jerusalem Page

[Selected Comments:]
– "You're right, it's embarrassing."
– "If I had seen him, I would have no idea who he was 😂😂"
-"Man, this is the freedom of the individual. When will you understand that there is such a thing as the freedom of the individual? Why do you always push your nose into everything?"
-"Tomorrow Zane Karzon [a Jordanian Internet star] will come along with her sister to Ramallah and Bethlehem, and then we will see exactly how different we are."
– "Oh no, and for what! The question is how they knew he was an actor, how do they differentiate, they all look the same!"
-"I do not understand why this bothers you. You like people from abroad and Turks [2] as well as Turkish and Indian songs. That's the same way we love Koreans and their songs. It's personal, if you think it's stupid then it's your problem, not ours. Everyone is free to love what they want, Koreans or Somalis, that's none of your business."

0202 Editor's Note:
[1] Choi Minho [last name then first] is a Korean actor and rapper in a group called SHINee. Their group received more media attention recently after one of the members of the group, Kim Jonghyun, committed suicide on December 18, 2017.
