Love Dem Jews!
As a model for world domination. Check out this plantastic superplan straight from the website of the president himself.
I’m lazy and Chuseok’s a-comin’, so I’ll just give you a basic idea and translate the highlights and let you puzzle out the rest on your own. The article basically postulates that the Korean Wave has reached its zenith because it was too tied up in Korean talent. Thus Korean producers should be getting into the entertainment business in Japan, the US and China by promoting local talent. Here’s the key quotes:
JYP said at some event “Our Korean Wave was a business model based on exporting Korean movies, TV shows, music and other content primarily to Asia. This model is too one-sided. That’s why anti-Korean Wave sentiment has appeared. Now we have to export the system, that is to say, a content-making factory.”
JYP goes on to say that content should be made in China, Japan and the US using singers and actors without regard to race, because success requires that they speak the same language as the consumers.
“In truth the phrase ‘Korean Wave’ must disappear. It has such a nationalist tint to it and it’s no different from sticking the Korean flag on your chest and fighting.” JYP warned.
“In the Beijing Olympics even if there are catcalls, if the archers shoot well they win the gold medal, but with music and other cultural products if Chinese people start booing Korea and stop buying you fail.” He cited the Jews as a role model that we should follow.
There are always Jews behind all the world’s industries, but they never state in the world market that the products they made are Israeli (이스라엘 것).”
JYP strenuously emphasized, “In US, Japan, and other markets of more than 100 million you can grow in any area, but in a market of 40 million like Korea it’s hard. There are a lot of Jews among the owners of Hollywood and America’s record company presidents. But we should pay attention to the fact that since they’ve removed the taint of nationalism they have been able to obtain a practical hegemony and sell cultural products in the world market.”
JYP got laughs and applause when he said “We penetrated the American cultural product market, and we were 7th in the Olympics, and I’m pretty sure our race (우리 민족) has some special talent.”
Heartwarming article all around, I would say.
