Earlier this month, China was accused of 'cultural appropriation' in Korea after a performer appeared at the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games Beijing 2022 wearing Hanbok as a representative of one of the ethnic minority groups in China.

Such scenes have sparked fury among Koreans, and many South Korean celebrities have also posted photos of themselves in Hanbok to back its origin as Korean.
