While the hairpin that IVE’s Jang Won-young recently showed in Paris is a hot topic, the Chinese side is claiming it is a ‘cultural extortion’.

On the 17th, China’s NetEase talked about the phoenix-shaped hairpin (Phoenix Baljam), which Jang Won-young, who visited Paris, France, showed in a vlog she recently released through Vogue Korea YouTube, “Jang Won-young (with her hairpin) is Korean fashion. I didn’t know you were going to shout that out.”

They argued that the phoenix and dragon are traditional and symbolic patterns of China, and that “there are hairpins in Korea, but the hairpins with the phoenix pattern are unique to China.”

At the same time, citing the reactions of Chinese netizens, they said, “Isn’t it stealing our traditional culture?”, “This is an intolerable problem,” and “I might have corrected and apologized if I had not known that phoenix balsam is a Chinese food.”
