Despite these measures, however, Chinese netizens have continued their attack the idol, and are now calling for a boycott against JYP Entertainment as a whole.
Supporters of the One-China policy, which includes the view that Taiwan is part of the People’s Republic of China rather than an independent state, have started using the hashtag #boycottJYP on Chinese social media platform Weibo. In response to the hashtag trend, however, Korean netizens have condemned Chinese media and netizens for being small-minded and trying to destroy Tzuyu’s career and reputation.
