Last month, Lee Si Eon posted photos of PlayStation 5 as well as a caption of gratitude to Sony for sending him such a generous gift.

I came home to a surprise gift from Sony! Even not-for-sale games… that wipe all your stress away. Thank you very much.

— Lee Si Eon

As harmless as the post was, some netizens had a problem with it. The reason being that Sony PlayStation 5 is a Japanese product.

  • “I don’t think it’s right for a famous celebrity to accept a gift from a Japanese brand and brag about it on social media.”
  • “You should protest against Japanese products.”
  • “I don’t support this advertisement.”

On the other hand, other netizens are confused as to why he should be hated on for such a harmless post.

  • “Whether he protests against Japanese products or not is his choice.”
  • “These people are just jealous.”
  • “I want one, too!”

Some Koreans have been on strike against Japanese products due to trade disputes between Korea and Japan.
