Bamboozled, Korean Style

my friend in korea: this korean pop group made themselves up in black face for one of their videos...pretty shocking
jsmooth: wow
my friend in korea: their justification was something to the effect that they wanted to be recognized for their musical talent as opposed to being pretty the way alot of popstars in korea are....and they said something like "black people are musically talented and we wanted to be like them"
my friend in korea: their video still airs! i just saw it at the gym on korean mtv
jsmooth: oh my god

EDIT: Here goes an article about this, from the Korea Herald
