Rapper E-Sens Expresses Frustration Towards Chinese Netizens Who Continue To Claim Hanbok And Kimchi As Their Own
Rapper E-Sens is being praised by netizens for his recent Instagram posts.
E-Sens recently took to his Instagram stories to express his frustrations towards Chinese netizens. For the past few months, the Chinese public has been making wild claims, declaring ownership over numerous Korean cultural artifacts such as kimchi, hanbok, maedeup (decorative knot) and “Arirang.” These ridiculous claims made by Chinese netizens have been infuriating the Korean nation, with E-Sens being one of many. The rapper decided that it was time to voice his opinion publicly and joined in on the outrage by sharing his annoyance. This is what he said.
I hope that you all had a wonderful Lunar New Years. It’s ‘hanbok’, not ‘hanfu’ you crazy thieves. The audacity you guys have..for those of you guys that think the ‘hanbok’ is Chinese, get a grip. It is Korean.
The rapper continues with his frustration by sharing what he believes will be the next crazy claim made by the Chinese media.
In the future, you are guys are probably going to claim that hip-hop started in China and not America.
He reiterates his stance on the hanbok being a traditional Korean garment by writing it in Chinese for his Chinese followers.
‘Hanbok’ is Korean.
Afterwards, E-Sens brings up a topic he wants clarification on. He asks the Chinese public about the Korean fermented cabbage dish, kimchi.
There’s something funny that I want to mention. Previously, when China was boycotting South Korea, I heard that you guys boycotted ‘kimchi.’ Is this true???????
He ends his string of posts by sharing the time Chinese netizens cursed him out.
Some of you Chinese netizens who were brainwashed told me that I needed to go study. You guys cursed me out and told me ‘go eat kimchi!’ Now, you’re claiming that ‘kimchi’ is yours.
E-Sens is being praised by Korean netizens for calling out the ridiculous claims that have been continuously made by the Chinese public. This is what they had to say about the rapper’s posts.
- “Hahaha he’s such a nopaku (someone who is blunt and doesn’t care about people’s opinions.) I love it”
- “This is f**king funny hahahahaha”
- “Seriously, he has such nopaku sense”
- “This is hip-hop”
- “Good hahaha”
- “Hahaha bboobboobboobboo-i”
The rapper was previously in hot water with Korean netizens due to his former marijuana conviction and prison sentence. Drug related controversies are hard to overcome in South Korea, but it looks like E-Sens may be back in good graces with the Korean public due to his recent Instagram stories.
