On August 21st, 6,000 citizens held a protest against the network Fuji Tv, at Oumi-Kita Futou Park. Around 1:30PM they started their protest with statements
“Fuji TV shouldn’t force Hallyu on us!” and “We don’t want to watch Korean dramas!”
A similar movement was held prior on August 7th with around 2,500. J-CAST News interviewed one of the protesters, he stated “This is a protest against Fuji’s biased reports, and how they’re pushing Hallyu onto us. It is not a claim of being anti-Korea”.
While the protesters tried to get into contact with the network, the network replied with “There are no reasons for a protest”. The representative said, “Shortly, we will put an open letter on the internet about this”.
