What the hell does that mean? But if you think about it again there are probably quite a few snobs in every country.

I remember a scene in Hyori's mv (I forget the song) but black people steal from her store and then later try to attack her. I'm not saying this is her view, but the producers need to get educated.


Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. The song is Lee Hyori feat. Eric - Animotion

Well, yes. There are also some Russian, Korean, Israeli, Greek, etc. snobs. Jerks don't exclusively belong to any nationality, and there seems to be a disproportionate amount of jerky foreigners in Asian drama.

It happens all the time in America too, though, like the Asian nerd/hacker genius or the Asian action kung-fu hero. As long as the stereotypes don't get too hateful, there's not much you can do but laugh it off. It's not going to disappear any time soon, and not everyone thinks that way.

thats basically every show
they make the americans fat, balding, wrinkly, sweaty, old men who cant talk straight
or they take the other approach and make the americans thugs that drop the f bomb every 7 seconds

They Kiss Again. Christine's dad was always yelling and stuff, complaining about everything. It's just a stereotype, like Americans thinks Asians are so nerdy and smart and rice and chopsticks. I'm sure most people think of hamburgers and McDonald's when they think of America.

well, Cowboys aren't represented too well in "Gal Circle," but I don't think there are too many Cowboys who give a darn about what asia thinks about them. i think there are more negative stereotypes found in American dramas about Americans, then can be found in asian dramas. the only contact most asians have with Americans, is through watching American dramas. i say you need to vent your personal anger by writing letters to NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX, MTV, BET, etc.

you are also welcome to write letters to the respective asian TV stations. your letters will be forwarded to special department



nice comeback

That episode of change where the American minister I think
tries of force the Japanese government by acting all tough and angry
that gave me some weird vibes,,
but they ended that episode quite nicely
