Hey!Say!JUMP’s Yamada Ryosuke and Arioka Daiki Verbally Abuse by Chinese Locals?

‘s Yamada RyosukeDaiki Arioka, and actress Kawaguchi Haruna, who are in Hong kong to shoot the upcoming Kindaichi Shonen no Jikenbo~Hong Kong Kowloon Zaiho Satsujin Jiken~ have received some anti-Japanese sentiments from Chinese locals.

Sina News reported that due to the tensions between Sino-Japanese relations over disputed islands, an anti-Japanese sentiment have risen among the locals. In their latest location shoot in North Point Market , some Chinese locals/ traders were reported to have givenYamada and the cast a “finger”, some cursing, and even heard saying that Japanese should not be coming to Hong Kong to shoot.

Chinese and Japanese relations have been strained after Japanese “nationalized” islands of Senkaku that Chinese are claiming as theirs.

Yesterday, the casts of Kindaichi filmed some of the scenes from Shangri-La Hotel in Tsim Tsa Shui to North Point Market. The busy wet market became a bustling film set with some of Hey!Say!JUMP’s fans following Yamada and Daiki.  The crowd thickened around 9 in the morning, but the casts maintained their professionalism and continues to shoot. However, some traders/business owners were not particularly happy with the casts shooting in their area and were heard saying, “You, Japanese people should not shoot here in Chinese soil“. As the traders angers grew, the production crew were forced to call the police for assistance to mediate.

The shooting continues from North Point Market to Regal Hotel to Causeway Bay streets. A large number of Chinese fans were tailing the film crew and even rented some small trucks/pick-up to make it easier to follow the casts.

The shooting continued until dinner time wherein the casts ate their meals inside their vans.

Kindaichi Shonen no Jikenbo~Hong Kong Kowloon Zaiho Satsujin Jiken~ will air this Winter.

duno if its true but i think theyll be okay in hong kong. theres some older traditional people that could get roudy about it.. but for the most part most of hong kong dont have that much china pride, as they always consider themselves their own country. same with taiwan.. plus theyre both pretty international places so

yeah i'm surprised too with the news too! i thought hong kong people don't really consider themselves belong to china~

I was shocked when I watched the video yesterday as well...
But, the thing that makes me surprised more is that they reported this in the news!! There's even the clip where the old man got angry and said that Japanese shouldn't shoot in china....

At this point Japan should just pull all of their citizen and property out of China. I'm scared for their safety.

last time i went to a tour in china, 3 (from a family of 5) were stabbed by some random chinese guy who thought we were Japanese (when we were all actually chinese living in the Philippines). ;_;

+1 :)

Just in case, you're welcome to shoot in my room house country. :)
katzsong 18th-Sep-2012 11:28 am (UTC)
Not Hong Kong too :( I thought the city/country is quite neutral on this. I mean, like some already mentioned, most Hong Kong's citizen don't have much of the China pride, unlike the people in mainland. They often don't agree with mainland government anyway :3
I just hope every one is safe. No more riots, no more victims.
xingjing 18th-Sep-2012 12:59 pm (UTC)
actually i think hong kong started with the rioting over the islands..

O___o The situation getting more worse. Just hope all the cast can return home safely.

This was bound to happen sooner or later... there was a hint of this with the whole Li Bingbing thing but I sure as heck didn't expect it to happen at this scale. That rumor of a Seungri scandal might have only added fuel to a yet non-existent fire.
Their SP shooting in Hong Kong is turning out into an ill-timed production. No one could have predicted how the Chinese would be rallying under a xenophobic banner disguised as national pride.

I didn't even expect HK citizens to involve themselves with the issue in the light of their increasing "disfavor" of how the Mainland has run things in the last decade. I guess I was wrong. I may have had a few comments against how overly ambitious this SP was going to be but I sure as heck don't want to see it cancelled outright because of a geopolitical crisis. *sigh*

Hope the cast (even the Chinese ones) and crew are all right. The last thing we need to hear/read about is a mobbing, or worse, lynching of celebrities. If they're going to cancel this production all together, I'll understand. It is for everyone's safety after all.

Thanks for sharing this.

I think that its just the oldies who are so much into the rift, or maybe they got irked by fangirls screaming and their business got disrupted...HKG jumpers should protect them!!!

This article is complete BULLSHIT. They were not "verbal abused" because they were Japanese.

When they were filming a few days ago at a street market, the whole production took up the entire street and vendors weren't able to operation their businesses. There was ONE angry vendor who shouted that they should be compensated for the loss of that day. Some say he did mention that they were shooting on Chinese soil, but it's all speculation.

Stop stirring shit up in an already fucked up situation.
ranguren_chan 18th-Sep-2012 12:59 pm (UTC)
Well, the author of the article DID put a question mark at the end of the title... you have to admit that there's room for speculation after all. In the least we could have "speculation" or "rumor" tags for our posts to avoid rash judgments/conclusions like this one.

But yeah, we can't deny that this already fucked-up situation is eating away at our current Asian geopolitics. HK is better off leaning away from what the Mainland is subliminally "telling" its citizens.

Your YT link had a better reporting content. Thanks for clearing it up.

It must be hard for them. I hope they're alright.
Oh God, why does it have to be my ichiban and niiban? TT_______TT

That's what illiteracy amonng the population can do. They are so easily led to slaughter like a herd of sheep.
x_vickiiiie 18th-Sep-2012 02:16 pm (UTC)
Excuse me?
Hong Kong has a literacy rate of 99.7%, one of the highest in the world. It's also ranked as one of the highest in the world in terms of university education between its people, with over 50% percent of the population holding at least a Bachelor's Degree or higher.

Get your facts right before you try commenting with such harsh words.
Before you compare anyone, regardless of race to sheep, look at yourself and what ill manners and a lack of education you have with the words that you are spewing from your mouth.
