The longer I hang out with Chinese people visiting Japan, the more I find out about anti-Japan sentiment in China happening right now.
Tall Guy from Taiwan: You know Vicky Zhao, who played the sassy princess in the mini-series "还珠格格"?
Me: I vaguely remember seeing her on TV.
TG: Yeah, she did a modeling shoot where she wrapped a Japanese flag around herself and wore it on the runway. People were so pissed off that they threw ... [looks down at me eating ramen] rocks ... at her.
The next day, walking in a market.
Dad: By the way, it wasn't rocks that people threw. It was manure.
Me: Well, maybe she wore the flag unintentionally and wasn't trying to make a statement.
Dad: Of course it was unintentional! If it was intentional, she'd probably be killed by someone by now!
Dad: Also, Korea withdrew from the theatres all movies that star her.
