Korean Pop Stars Brought To Tears Over WWII History Flub

Pop group AOA has been blasted by the Korean public for failing to recognize a hero from WWII: AOA's Seolhyun, Jimin Controversy Continues Amid Comeback; History Professor Defends AOA Members
In the May 10 episode of the show, Seolhyun and Jimin were asked to match the photos and names of several important historical figures, which include Abraham Lincoln, Yi Sun Sin and many more.

However, the pair could not recognize Ahn Jung Geun, who is considered a hero and one of the most important Korean historical figures. He fought for Korean independence during the Japanese occupation and also became known for assassinating Japanese statesman and former Resident-General of Korea, Ito Hirobumi, reported Soompi.

Since then, Seolhyun and Jimin have received numerous criticism from Korean netizens, not only for not being able to recogniz Ahn Jung Geun, but also for allegedly calling him "Kinddokkang," which is apparently what he was called by the Japanese.
You can see the same mob mentality in any nation, but the target indicates potential future events. The East Asians are gearing up for international war with Japan, while the West is gearing up for civil war.
