Sohn Kee-chung is Korean!South Korea making a statement to the Japan Olympic Museum
With the Tokyo Olympics just around the corner, South Korea continues to overreact to Japan, including the Rising Sun Flag and the Takeshima issue.
Then, on June 17, the Korean media began to make noise again, triggered by an SNS post by Seo Kyoung-Duk, a professor at Sungshin Women’s University. Professor Seo Gyeongdeok is a well-known professor in South Korea who almost always continues to accuse Japan-related issues such as Takeshima and the Rising Sun Flag.
Professor Xu has a problem that the photograph of the late Sohn Kee-chon, who won the 1936 Berlin Olympics marathon, is displayed alongside Japanese gold medalists at the Japan Olympic Museum in Shinjuku, Tokyo. I saw it.
Professor Xu said he sent a protest email to the Tokyo Organizing Committee of the Olympic Games and the Japanese Olympic Committee (JOC), saying, “If Japanese spectators see him, he may be mistaken for being Japanese.”
While the Korean media has repeatedly covered it, VANK, a Korean citizen group engaged in private diplomacy, is also responding. VANK is an organization that changed the design of the blockbuster movie “Theatrical Version” Kimetsu no Yaiba “Infinite Train Edition”, claiming that the earrings of the main character, Tanjiro Kamado, are reminiscent of the Rising Sun Flag. Is.
The VANK requested the Tokyo Organizing Committee of the Olympic Games to make corrections and posted it on the online signing site, which in turn raised the fist of the Sohn Kee-chung Memorial Foundation in South Korea. Secretary-General Lee Jun-soon, the grandson of Sohn Kee-chung, sent an official document to the JOC protesting, “I want you to indicate that your nationality is South Korea.”
