1. [+1,488, -34] The Chinese love Korean celebrities so they have to cave in if they want to make money too ㅋㅋㅋ
2. [+1,152, -49] Korean dramas are considered high quality to them so they have to cave in and watch eventually
3. [+906, -34] The flow of culture has always been from high to low. Back in the Joseon dynasty, China's culture was considered higher in quality so it spread to all over our country but now, Hallyu has become higher quality than China's culture to the point where a comparison isn't even fair. Just like how the flow of water cannot be reversed or blocked, it doesn't matter how hard China tries to block Hallyu, it will flow in eventually..
4. [+427, -28] I guess Hallyu bans are case by case too
5. [+74, -3] I wouldn't say the Hallyu ban is getting more lenient. The journalist is misinformed because it's actually dramas up until September that have passed regulations that can be broadcast but any drama after that is banned. And Akdong Musician was only allotted a small 2,000 audience theater and has been banned from any bigger venue.
6. [+58, -3] This article's a lie. Yoo In Na was fired mid-filming and isn't sure that her work will even be out next year whereas dramas are only allowed to be aired if they were cleared prior to September. Akdong Musician was only granted permission for a 2,000 audience venue. The Hallyu ban is still continuing.
7. [+51, -2] Sad that the Korean dramas produced to cater to Chinese tastes are all low in quality
8. [+33, -3] Either way, the thirsty will dig their own well ㅋ and it's the Chinese side that's going to be thirsty in this case
9. [+24, -1] Just because the country bans Korean dramas doesn't mean the Chinese people who like Korean dramas will suddenly hate it too..
10. [+18, -0] Idiots, China's a communist country, if they decide to ban something, they can ban it off all of their TV channels
