Kang, a Korean-French mixed-martial arts fighter born on St Pierre of Miquleon and who moved to Canada in 1988, is known here as the "Super Korean." Even though his blood is only half Korean, the commercial says, the flag he waves is the same as yours. Which I suppose is encouraging in a grudgingly-more interracial Korea, if a little ugh-worthy.
The following commercial was in circulation on Korean TV for a while, too.
Nobody has a choice of where they're born. The passport is just a piece of paper. What's real is in here. I'm still Korean. Nothing can change that.
I'm not going to get involved in how Korean he may or may not be, or how selective the editing there was. I just wonder how well comments like those, or Michelle Wie's father saying
the only thing about her that’s American is her passport, she is “definitely” Korean.
or Daniel Henney appearing in face-whitening cosemetics commericals go over when they're not said or done before a hometown crowd.
