[theqoo] NAVER WEBTOON RELEASING YET ANOTHER ENGLISH APOLOGY

Note: 'Get Schooled' will be deleting their episode 125 and will go in a long-term hiatus. 
The specific return schedule will be announced later in consultation with the provider. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.


Naver Webtoon is being serialized on WEBTOON, a foreign language service.

This is what happened


"Among the pure blood Koreans in this class"
"There's nobody but myself"






"Yah you f*cking n***** f*cker!"

(doing monkey sounds)


"Teacher~ Your eyes are green, so are you mixed?"
"Yes, my mother is Korean and my dad is American"

"You've never heard people in the US called you "Yellow monkey" before?"


The webtoon introduced a black character who discriminates against Asians overseas
They just included the N-word as it is in the webtoon

Even to Koreans, it's impressive that such a plot was able to get serialized
But to even translate this into the "N-word" on WEBTOON overseas ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
Foreigners are making a huge fuss over this overseas...
They're sayoing about how they love webtoons but this isn't it
And there are thousands of RTs about it on Twitter

In the end, they released an apology
+ That webtoon has been totally delted oversease
after that episode got delted in Korea, they went on a long hiatus 
They were writing a webtoon about receiving education (t/n: Korean title) and they actually got educated...
 
Of course this was the fault from the writers but 
I wonder why PDs and people working on editing these keep picking these problematic works.. 
It's been so any times already.. 


original post: here

1. This webtoon just smells cheap.. 

2. The content of that plot is just appaling ㅋ I can't even call that a "story"

3. This is so problematic.. 

4. Their levels are f*cking low 

5. Are they r*tarded?

6. This reminds me of a male community 

7. The education of a male communityㅋㅋㅋ

8. Yah this is honestly a national embarrassment, they're insane 

9. Why ... Are they like that...?  Don't they know where the limits are..? 

10. This is basically a white teacher teaching a black student to not be racist against Koreans.....ㅋㅋㅋ
