Choi Siwon & sister says sorry to China
Times are becoming difficult for Korean businesses in China after the South Korean government decided to press ahead with the deployment of the THAAD missile system on a piece of land owned by K conglomerate, the Lotte Group.
China has objected to this publicly about 1000 times as it believes that the THAAD system's radar will be so powerful that it can spy on China's skies, including that of Shanghai's 24/7.
Korean celebrities have also been feeling the heat of late and the latest casualty has been Super Junior's Choi Siwon.
Choi Siwon is currently serving out his military service but found time to "like" his sister's photo while she happened to be in a Lotte Building.
But this has incurred a backlash in China among his Chinese fans and critics.
Choi Siwon is currently feeling apologetic and explains that he "liked" the photo to give his sister encouragement while she was feeling depressed.
His sister has since apologised too for being insensitive.
Choi Siwon's actually like this? We always thought he was like that with supermodel Liu Wen.
