very unclassy: he/she can say whatever opinion he/she wants to say... but having to tell them to leave Japan if they don't like Japan is totally wrong and VERY unprofessional.

First I am very offended as a Korean American by what that person had to say. But I am also offended as someone who loves Japan and has lived there for one year. This person is misrepresenting Japanese people and their perspective towards K-POP.

I can't stand ignorant people like him/her, makes me want to barf

I'm not even sure whether the person is a girl or a boy.
I feel bad for Se7en sitting there. I bet he must feel so angry and frustrated.

During the discussion, Matsuko Deluxe said, "I cannot accept this. In my opinion, K-POP is only a bad imitation of U.S. music." A Korean-Japanese writer, who was also a guest on the show answered, "Lately, K-Pop has landed even in the U.S. music market. K-Pop is getting highly ranked even on the Billboard charts. However, J-Pop was not able to reach the same level."

Matsuko Deluxe got angrier and with a louder voice commented, "Japan is embracing different cultures from all over the world including K-Pop. Where do you find such a kindhearted country!? If you do not like our country, just leave!
"

And Matsuko Deluxe is a dude but he wears womens clothing. I've only really seen him when he guest stars on Gaki No Tsukai (is actually kind of funny)

"Matsuko Deluxe was an editor for a gay magazine called the "Body" before he became a columnist and some sort of a television personality.

According to my unreliable resource, Deluxe does not dress as a woman outside of television appearances. It is a character he created for the show. Because of his size, all of the wardrobes are custom made by him. And he proudly claims that the clothing material he uses can cover a 25-meter swimming pool. Awesome."

What a jerk. Let's face it, with the exception of Europop (which is influenced by American music and traditional European music), ALL pop/rock music worldwide is imitating American music. It's bad enough he's spewing xenophobic hatred, but does he have to do it with a lisp, besides? :lol:

I'm baffled as to how this guy hasn't died of a heart attack. How can he be that obese, and still be able to walk? He should spend less time hating and more time taking care of himself.

Aw. come one don't be so harsh.
I actually read a couple more translations and apparently this all started because the guy in the doctor's coat was going off about how Kpop crafted its own distinct style in 2007 and how it was better than Jpop and because they had songs that made it on the billboard charts. (which really doesn't mean jack)

So, in all honesty I actually understand where Matsuko is coming from because to say that Kpop is so UNIQUE and SUPERIOR is pretty insulting. And I kind of agree with Matsuko in some aspects. And this is coming from a person that once used to love KPOP MORE than Jpop.

And I don't think Matsuko was being THAT serious. The audience was laughing so I don't think anyone really took it that seriously.
