Japanese Emperor’s Granddaughter Loves Korean Group Girls’ Generation

From Korea Times: The granddaughter of the Japanese Emperor, “Gako, 17, gave a performance last fall in her high school, copying the choreography of ‘Oh!,’ a hit song of the group’s second album released at the beginning of 2010. One of the local media reported her dancing in a newspaper with a picture, titled, ‘She is a real dancing queen,’ which was the first time when the controversy ignited among the netizens…This has caused controversy as some Japanese have recently shown extreme right-wing views toward Hallyu, or Korean wave, in the country.” Girls Generation, of course, is a Korean Group but has released albums in Korean and Japanese.

About Mihee

Mihee lives in the Mid-West with her husband, toddler-aged twins (yes, terrible twos is actually a thing), and baby #3. Though her reserve of brain cells is seriously depleted she is still passionate about Asian American culture, religion and social justice for marginalized people, stories about Korea, sports, and power naps. During the day, she spends a lot of time trying to remember which baby needs to eat or get a diaper change, mentoring and ministering to college students, occasionally taking a walk, writing, watching Sportscenter, or grabbing coffee.
