Spokening Dollar

Do you know that a certain person born in the name of Lee Dae Hee exist? If you're not into Korean entertainment, I guess you wouldn't, so for the benefit of everyone let me give a very, very small introduction. Lee Dae Hee is a Korean actress who rose to fame on 2005 because of the hit series My Girl, aside from that she also starred in other dramas like Green Rose, a Pinoy remake will be shown on ABS-CBN soon, and My Fair Lady which was Tagalized and shown in GMA, as of the moment she can be seen in the K-drama East of Eden, currently airing in the latter station. Now, that you have a background, here's the real deal, she kinda made a mess in a Korean variety show a while back and the vid of her doing so just popped up in You Tube which made the blood pressure of most Pinoy rise. I was looking for the two earlier vids but KBS (a Korean channel) already had it deleted due to copyright infringement, it would have been a better exhibit/evidence as the thousands of comments will prove my point the easiest way, as it is, I have no choice but to use the recent one, which you can see below -

A few days after the vid circulated on YT and reposted on blogs, FB, Twitter and other social networking sites and thousands of mad comments and angry individuals, she posted a very long apology, err, excuse on her Twitter - the apology and the Twitter account, mob her if you want, lawl (slang of lol). That same day, an online entertainment portal in their country posted an article about her apology and her so-called imitation of Filipino teachers' accent, which instantly became one of the most commented article and it still is up to now.

Now, on to another point, personally, I was really affected when I saw the vid, it's insulting without me understanding it in full but it was way more insulting and, heck, it froze my brain in madness, when i found out that they were actually playing on our teachers accent. I am no teacher, but hell, if my teacher is as they pictured them to be, then basically, they are saying that I am like so, too, right? And it effin' angered me more when everyone in the Tv program laughed their hearts out as if it was the funniest thing ever, and what's with the excellent tag, seriously, "katalinuhan kayo?" And then, came the apology which should be coined as an excuse because that was what it is, Lee Dae Hee just put the blame on someone else's shoulder instead of admitting her fault, and I swear, everyone in that program should ask for an apology, too. But, something that I cannot comprehend were the other Pinoys who didn't/doesn't seem to be affected at all, they took it as a joke and suggest that everyone should too, WTH? Are you even my countrymen, lol, I'm being too nasty, sorry.

Phew, water under the bridge, but I can still see my reflection on the water, so it ain't over yet.
