In the morning of July 15, Jang Keun Suk had made an emotional tweet writing, “What makes me really mad is they don’t say anything to a Western (a non-Asian person). But if an Asian shows even a slight bit of an ugly impression they [call it out]. I understand you’re stressed but do you have to be like that for you to be at ease? Hmm?”
