"Koreans are making a big issue out of this right now. Sigh. Reina wanted Eri to come up with an interesting theme to pose for a two-shot, so Eri suggested they do the pose they're doing in the photo saying it's what she thinks of Korean people. Reina doesn't really agree with Eri but goes along with it anyway, thinking with the recent Korean boom in Japan this is what Eri saw and thought about Koreans. She then posted another entry with Sayu doing the same poses she did with Eri.
The trouble is, apparently in Japan that particular pose lifting the eyeline upwards is a derogatory gesture towards Koreans, and it's making many Koreans (even those who proclaim to be 'fans', who are really just glad that they found something to bash Japan about) angry. The sad thing is, MM are quite popular among Korean fans who are into J-Pop, especially the GoRokkies, and ignoring how the members have been talking too much about being into Korean stuff lately they're forming the opinion that MM are racist towards Koreans. As of now both Sayu and Reina's blogs have stopped updating while the problematic posts on Reina's blog have been deleted (yeah, after it was already too late), and their manager has also stopped tweeting. I guess they didn't realise how serious the issue was until the day after Reina posted them, and possibly they're discussing how to respond, whether it be Reina (and Sayu?) post an entry apologising for the whole thing or UFA release a statement, or whatever."
and because of all this nonsense, Sayumi and Reina suspended they're blogging duties for few days, which is a travesty in itself, and had to issue an apology to appease those chinky eyed Koreans
but seriously folks, can we just stop all this bickering, listen to our pop music and continue worshiping these idols that we adore? cuz really, aren't we all just a little chinky eyed deep down inside?
