The Effects Of Chinese Ban On K-Pop Music

China has clearly rejected the idea of the U.S. putting up a missile system in its neighboring country, South Korea. This is despite the main purpose of the THAAD to be just a defense measure incase North Korea proceeds with a surprise attack in South Korea. The Chinese government even made warnings to the U.S. and South Korea, saying that if they continue to pursue the installation of the missile system, the two countries are going to experience the consequences of their actions.
However, instead of just doing something to address the issue, China had instead taken out its anger on Korean pop culture or K-pop. Korean music, films, TV shows, and everything that is from South Korea are all banned. It is worth noting that China is one of South Korea’s biggest markets as it gives $5.3 billion yearly to the Korean nation. With this, one can see that the ban has indeed dealt a major blow in South Korea’s economy. According to Yahoo News , all K-pop TV shows, music videos in YouTube and other social media networks, and even concerts are blocked by the Chinese government. This is despite the popularity that K-pop has over the Chinese youth. Though it’s dealing more of a passive effect to Korea, it still helps China improve and showcase its dominance in the region. And even though Chinese people are into K-pop culture, they still showed their strong support to their government’s K-pop ban. During the past weeks, there were a lot of Chinese internet users who went out to social media saying that they should boycott Korean products, as this is one way of showing their love to China. Then there’s another one that says to stop listening and watching Korean dramas and music. It’s pretty clear that the Chinese are very obedient to their country’s policies, even though it has been said over and over again that the THAAD missile system in South Korea will not do any harm to its neighboring nations.
