Weather caster "shames all of Korea's women" with airheaded tweet amidst North Korea crisis


Article: "Even during North Korea's nuclear test experiment..." weather caster Noh Eun Ji's tweet 'criticized'

Source: Sports Seoul via Nate

On the morning of the 12th, North Korea ran their third nuclear test experiment, putting South Korea's military on alert and the nation in a state of tension. During the ordeal, the weather caster tweeted, "Even during North Korea's nuclear testing, my cravings for Shindangdong ddukbokgi cannot be stopped~>.<"

1. [+373, -5] Would it have been impossible for her to just shut up and eat the damn food? Why stick the part about the North Korean nuclear testing in the tweet?

2. [+363, -9] So... stupid;;

3. [+331, -61] What an article to completely blow my impression of educated women being more aware of national security. Whether or not a woman has graduated from Yonsei university or just has a high school diploma, they don't care whether the country is on the verge of war as long as Innisfree is having a 50% discount sale and they're craving ddukbokgi.

4. [+42, -1] Why can't people just keep these thoughts to themselves? Why make it public on SNS and create controversies like this? Was her craving for ddukbokgi something so dire that it needed to be shared with the world? Why even add the part about the nuclear testing?

5. [+42, -22] She just shows how low the intelligence level of our country's women is ㅋㅋㅋㅋ You might not think so, but this is reality. She is not the minority here. If you're a woman, put your hand over your heart and ask yourself what women have done for the military and war prevention and what they can do when a war actually happens. I bet 99% will be busy running away.

6. [+28, -2] I can already imagine this weather caster on the news saying, "Today, due to a nuclear bomb, I expect it to be a foggy day. Please be careful of getting dust in your ddukbokgi."

7. [+25, -2] And another bi*ch grinds her career into the ground...... I used to think well of her but what would you know

8. [+23, -7] Honestly, she's representative of Korean women... I bet the majority of them don't care either

9. [+18, -2] I bet she'll be one of those women who start screaming "What are the men doing!!!!" when North Korea shoots a bomb through her window

10. [+14, -1] It's because of crazy bi*ches like her that people want women to serve in the army too. What the fu*k does the nuclear test have anything to do with your damn ddukbokgi? Is the test a joke to you? All of our nation's soldiers are out there busily getting ready for a potential war but this bi*ch doesn't seem to know a damn thing about how serious the situation is. Women seriously need mandatory service in the army. I honestly doubt she's one of the few women like this.

  3. OMG, how sexist can they be? This is ignorance beyond what I've imagined.
    Do Korean males really have this idea?

    ReplyDelete
  4. korean men seem a little too butthurt about mandatory military service... they do realize they are not the only country who has that right? stop whining about it online at every little opportunity damn

  6. it wouldve been a perfectly normal tweet if she had just taken out the nuclear testing part...i don't think its the time for anyone to joke about N. Korea's bomb testing...they've made it clear that they intend to use it so....

    ReplyDelete
  7. We all know the second N. Korea uses a bomb they are pretty much done for..

    ReplyDelete
  8. oh please... even if they went to army these men would say they dont works as hard as them. one woman says shit and t they generalize all women? fuck

    ReplyDelete
  9. The fuck?
    Korean men are so sexist. Her tweet was kinda inappropriate but that doesn't give them the right to degrade her and generalize all women as stupid and ungrateful bitches. I just think it's funny when they complain about their mandatory service as if they're the only country that does it. Besides most of them do it for 2 years only. Some countries lure teenage boys in from 16 into the army where they lose their young adulthood and even their lives in combat, some of these guys complaining are 95% likely to never experience that. They need to shut the fuck up...

    ReplyDelete
  10. Her tweet was quite stupid but fuck, how sexist these douchebags are !! Netizenbuzz makes me hate Korean netizens more and more.

    ReplyDelete
  11. One woman, one tweet=All women. And the most illogical reasoning-award of the year goes to~~~

  12. I think women should be allowed to join the military to, I'm sure there are plenty of women in Korea that would prove these men wrong and fight if they had the chance, (I know I would, better than sitting at home as civilian worrying over your brother or boyfriend), and I don't blame these commentators for being so touchy, when their country could be bombed at any moment and their nations youth forced to fight.

    ReplyDelete
  13. This ladies & gentlemen is an example that shows education DOES NOT equal smartness.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Her comments aren't that serious and all of the comments are from men I bet...go figure. It's obvious that some of them are pissed off about the mandatory service with N.Korea scares but no need to drag women down with them by lobbing insults based off of one woman's thoughts.

    ReplyDelete
  15. There are quite a lot of women already in the military. 2.7% of the SK military are female soldiers. And "[a]s of July 2008, senior-ranking women officers included 1 brigadier general, 8 colonels, 60 lieutenant colonels, and 212 majors." And these are all volunteers. Considering the way netizens discuss the army, I wonder how many men would join if they had a choice?

    ReplyDelete
  16. lol, they don't get any women so they're pressed as fuck.

    they need to put down women to feel better, pathetic.

    ReplyDelete
  17. they're uncomfortable with powerful and independant women. Theyre so scared, those poor babies.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I despise the way they keep using the word "bitch" with every female entertainer, little respect wouldn't hurt. Also NB is it a korean thing to call guys bastards? cause I've seen that word randomly thrown on some articles.

    ReplyDelete
  19. What a stupid betch...she need a sassy gay friend asap

    ReplyDelete
  20. Korea has a patriarchal society. This should not be surprising to you.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Curiosity sake-do u know which other countries have manadatory military service?

    ReplyDelete
  22. yeah, but can't we wish and dream that people understand there's no difference between sex and race?

    ReplyDelete
  23. but most koream women are pretty dumb. Even in asia, people take them as a joke.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Well then again this is a Korean forum so it's not like these comments are meant for anyone else than other Koreans...
    Not defending the obvious sexist opinion happening here though, that's just really messed up.

    ReplyDelete
  25. the fact that this injustice is the norm in many countries doesn't make it a good thing, or something that can't be questioned?

    but i agree that posting misogynist rants is surly not the way to go.

    ReplyDelete
  26. it's totally normal in korean to trash women like that.

  28. too much random food in that pot O_O

  29. "1. [+373, -5] Would it have been impossible for her to just shut up and
    eat the damn food? Why stick the part about the North Korean nuclear
    testing in the tweet?"
    she's free to comment wtv she wants.

  30. There are always these male netizens who continuously comment sexist comments on articles like this. Just ignore that person, he's just one of those dumb netizens. And most Korean men are not sexist like that, they're not butthurt about women not doing military. I'm so ashamed that idiots like him are shaming Korean men.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Thank you for sharing this generalized sexist opinion of your women. Now go f*** yourselves.

    ReplyDelete
  32. AND you just made the same reasoning mistake by lumping all korean men into this, when it was just a few keyboard warriors posting this crap. it's usually the dumbest who are the loudest...

    ReplyDelete
  33. Same logic applies here.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I agree, it's not like one comment in the internet represents every male netizens opinion. But sadly there are idiots like these and 42 who seem to agree. But I think we all got our own sexist assholes in every country.

    ReplyDelete
  35. yeah why do women give birth to these misogynist assholes. who needs women right?

    ReplyDelete
  36. I don't even... So one thoughtless tweet equals to her being stupid? It's not like we are all so smart all the time. I don't even want to remember all the stupid shit I've written on facebook and I still don't think of myself as a an airhead. Oh, and clearly comments number 5, 7 and 8 seem so much smarter than she.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I wonder, if women in the military are viewed in a particular negative or stereotypical way or are viewed with admiration? I'm genuinely interested

    ReplyDelete
  38. Look at this Misogyny!! Is it the 60s?!! Their news is always centered more on the faults of women in the media. Would the response be the same if a man said this stupid tweet. Tsk. Teen top leader said, i'll hit my daughter and lock her up at home. An apology and all is forgiven. Krystal from fx doesn't smile today. The response is people calling her a brat and ungrateful girl since her debut.

    Fuck those comments, seriously. You can tell that these comments come from either bitter basment dwellers or just bitter men in general. So what if you korean men have to do mandatory enlistment, take that shit up with the government then if you have complaints. You're not the only country that has a draft. And honestly, there are women that join the korean army out of their own free will!

    They give off the impression that they can only handle glass dolls.

    Bitch this, bitch that, with the way they refer to women over there, I don't blame the women for staying single. They are always bitching about women, if she has a hairdresser job, she's a delinquent, if she goes to school and misspoke one time she's a dumbass. Just total lack of respect and yet they want to be treated with respect too and what's even more worse is that it is hard to speak up about your rights over there.

    Seriously, these men have to keep up with the times. Women are gong to keep moving forward with or without their help, they can either move forward with women or keep living their ugly lives.

    Of course, not all men are like these commentators,but these people need education.

    ReplyDelete
  39. She intended to joking with that tweet maybe, but this is serious problem for Korean, it's understandable they're mad with her stupid as fuck tweet, but it's also stupid for netizen to bring in sexist issue and generalize all women as unitelligent etc.

    ReplyDelete
  40. The hypocrisy of all of this is astounding. If these MRAs get their way and women had mandatory service in the army that would just open up all sorts of ignored misogyny (which is probably what they want in the first place, huh). A woman would probably never make it to a high rank in the army because god forbid she gets put in a position of authority over These Hardworking Male Soldiers, and they'd never let her do active duty. Sexual abuse in the army? Good luck, lady, you'll just be shamed if you try and put your assailant to jail. They'll just give you a 50% discount at Innisfree and expect you to take it.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Its simple make it mandatory for women to go to the army too. You can put them in the nail salon with heechul. lol

  42. Name a country that's not...

  43. Pick up a rifle and stand a post, subin...Have you ever had to defend ANYTHING you believe in? Do you even believe in anything worth defending?

    ReplyDelete
  44. can you make a comment without being so harsh.. you must have a lot of anger inside of you

    ReplyDelete
  45. Really? All women are idiots because of this? :/

    ReplyDelete
  46. I know that women are being trashed anywhere, including America as well, but it seems like Koreans blatantly write this. I've never seen these kinds of comments before, not even in the US or Canada.

    ReplyDelete
  47. fuck, I cant handle all this sexism

    ReplyDelete
  48. " If you're a woman, put your hand over your heart and ask yourself what women have done for the military and war prevention"

    they gave birth to shitheads like you, that's what they did.

    ReplyDelete
  49. But from what I've observed on the internet, there is quite a large population of these keyboard warriors...I wonder what living in Korea feels like

    ReplyDelete
  50. Actually, 1.1%....But it's so sad these kinds of ilbebug-ish comments are increasing in other portal websites, like in Naver and Daum as well.

    ReplyDelete
  51. So we don't have to go to military, big deal. We are the ones who fucking sacrifice our lives to take care of your children and go through the pain of birth so that you can even have children and have we ever complained?

    ReplyDelete
  52. She's stupid, but so are those comments

    ReplyDelete
  53. I see a lot of sexist shit. Oh Korea, you're embarrassing me again *facepalm*. If you want to see women serving in the military as conscripts, then get the fuck out of Korea and sign up for the Israeli Defense Force then.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Well you're lucky. I've heard and seen plenty of guys act superior to females...

    You've probably been on pretty sheltered parts of the Internet.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Honestly, if that Teen Top leader seriously meant his word, I think it'd be fine if he one day finds out that he's infertile.

    ReplyDelete
  56. It absolutely is and someone really needs to do something about it.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Yes, I've seen those comments in English websites too, but I've never witnessed this much of it. It's true that Korea is more of a patriarchal country than the West, and there is bound to be more of misogyny there.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Each country has its own set of issues. I assume you haven't lived there?


    And one of the main issues in Canada/U.S. is that so many people think we're not bad, equality wise.


    And to this degree... the things that U.S. Senators said about how "the female body has its own ways of not getting pregnant if they were truly raped!!!" for one.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Wow I didn't know discrimination in women is still on in SK.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Korea should just ban all SNS network. First start off w/people who are on tv.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I remember in school 2013 there was one of mean girls who want to get into good uni to be an announcer just to get married with rich man. I think that weather caster is an example of that. Good job and education but lack of logic and empathy.

    And yeah, I hope those keyboard warriors misogynist will be forever alone.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I agree that that was reeeeally sexist, but generally, it is blatant truth that Korea has more gender equality issues, as it is a very confucionist country. I'm not saying that Korea is a worse country to live in. Every country has issues, but in this aspect, Korea seems to have more of a problem.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Neither of us have lived there (I assume), I don't think we have a very good perspective for judging a whole country.

    I do see your point, I just think we're both pretty uninformed.

    Also p.s. 15 more days until South Korea has a female president who was actually elected to office.

    ReplyDelete
  64. That's a stupid tweet but these comments are left by misogynist jackasses, so... the amount of fucks given = ZERO

    ReplyDelete
  65. The comments... are just motherfucking sexist.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Is this a Korean thing or it happens in other parts of the world as well? In my country, a tweet will never make it to the news.

    Anyway, what is a 'Shindangdong ddukbokgi'? What are the ingredients insidie the dish? It looks quite delicious.

    ReplyDelete
  67. And to think that Knetz on Nate thought they were better than the ones on ible LOL

    ReplyDelete
  68. omg its so funny seeing ppl here taking these comments so srsly & generalizing the whole korean race.

    ReplyDelete
  69. All this misogyny FukFebruary 13, 2013 at 1:36 AM

    Everyone has had to defend something they believe in at one point or any other. Holding a gun and standing at a post doesn't make you a hero, and it doesn't make you better than anyone else. People serve in other ways, and women/men who have given their lives in duty are often disregarded simply because they weren't holding a gun at the front line.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Not all women in Asia are like that. Don't generalize.

    ReplyDelete
  71. pretty stupid thing for her to tweet. why mention the nuclear test and her cravings for food in the same post?

    ReplyDelete
  72. Honestly I kind of agree with them. If so many women are plastic then obviously there isn't much going on in their brains...

    ReplyDelete
  73. ~sigh~, and i thought no one take knetizen comments seriously...

    ReplyDelete
  74. lmfao how does that have anything to do with all these guys bitching about women not going to the army just because one dumb girl made an unnecessary comment? my country has mandatory army service too, i don't see anyone whining online about it like this. korean women have gotten their fair share of abuse in wars too, they don't deserve to be trash talked by some idiots.

    ReplyDelete
  75. SMH at some of these so called men.

    ReplyDelete
  76. And help feed these idiots, perform for them and many other thankless jobs.

    ReplyDelete
  77.  "they don't care whether the country is on the verge of war as long as Innisfree is having a 50% discount sale" HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA I'm a woman but that totallt cracked me up XD

    ReplyDelete
  78. education doesn't necessarily mean that these sexist morons will ever learn or change their views.

    ReplyDelete
  79. It's true that we can't judge a country, but it is universal fact that traditionally Islam and Confucionist countries have the most gender inequality. Since Korea is known to be very Confucionist, it is inevitable that there is more sexism than Western countries.
