>koreans hate chinese in korea and intermixed marriages to a chinese are not something desirable
bs, wony is prob mixed even if her dad and granddad are chinese. chinese are called hwagyo and form a sizeable minority in korea (as do koreans in china like renjun, the joseonjok); jun jihyun is ethnically chinese even former south korean presidents like roh moohyun and roh taewoo are ethnic chinese which would be impossible if chinese were hated in the past. koreas antichinese/hanbok/kimchi issues caught on due to the thaad fallout in 2015 that led to china banning kpop, korean exports and caused koreans to experience economic loss due to an export shrink. before thaad koreans saw china as a lucrative neighbouring market to trade with and liked china more than japan, now koreans hate all their neighbours lol. nonkoreans also didnt hate china until trump's trade war heightened us-china tensions and made us allies like uk canada japan korea distance themselves from china. people l act like china was always hated for some odd reason when korea itself consumes a ton of cdramas (heechul was a fan of bambi zhus wuxia drama), chinese culture like chopsticks, traditional art, hanja names, confucianism, taoism to the extent the korean flag has chinese yinyang and trigram symbols. many of the most popular food in korea is chinese: jajangmyun, ramyeon, jjampong, hotteok, tangsuyuk, mandu, bubble tea. weirdly enough despite frosty relations with china, malatang is the trendiest food in korea rn and baek jongwon a korean chinese chef is very popular.
