Joseon Exorcist

After facing criticism from Korean viewers, SBS announced the cancellation of Joseon Exorcist after 2 episodes. The criticisms came after the drama showed a scene of Jang Dong Yoon’s Prince Chungnyung eating Chinese dishes like dumplings and mooncakes, as well as scenes that involve Chinese props. Netizens also called the production out for portraying King Taejong massacring his own people.

The issue comes at a sensitive time for Korean, after Chinese personalities claimed the hanbok, kimchi, and taekwondo to have Chinese roots.
