Living in America where our entertainment is increasingly pandering to the tastes of self-proclaimed Social Justice Warriors, it’s sometimes easy to forget there are large parts of the world still resistant to such influences. This can cause issues however, when our forced diversity entertainment is exported around the world. Take for example the growing outrage in Korea, where gamers are not happy about how their culture is being represented in the latest game of the popular Civilization series.

The above post comes from YouTube. Where the comment section on a new video for the next expansion to popular strategy game Civilization 6, has been taken over by angered Koreans expressing their displeasure. This outrage stemming from the Western developers choice to have the nation be represented in game, by the historical Queen Seondeok. A ruler with a far from positive reputation among Koreans.

Traditionally in the Civilization series, nations are represented by a single leader that normally is the best or at least most famous in that country’s history. In the latest game in the series however, greater emphasis has been put on adding “diversity” to the roster of leaders. Its own developers stating, “We strive to have a diverse and varied selection of leaders, and it is also very important to us to include female leaders.” While adding more female leaders is perfectly fine, in the legitimate cases where a reasonable candidate exists. The reason so many Korean gamers are up in arms, is that they firmly believe anyone with even a basic knowledge of their history would understand that Queen Seondeok doesn’t fit that bill.

A totally separate issue is simply how the Queen is being physically portrayed by the American developer. With many people suggesting she simply doesn’t even look ethnically Korean. See for yourself here below. On the left is an image of the Queen as she is portrayed in modern Korean made media, the right is the version the Western game developer came up with.

Some of the best comments are actually in Korean of course. With this one asking in reference to the odd character design choice “Is this Queen from Africa?”

Others though cut right to the point, such as this comment which translates to, “We do not need your rubbish west social justice.” A sentiment I am sure oddly enough many of us reading here in the West would also agree with.

      Upside: More allies against SJWs.

        After the events of last year, when the female premier was revealed to be part of a feminist secret society and had to resign. I don’t think it is even possible for Korean nerds to become more anti-SJW than they already are.

        • Tewodros III

          Let them kill all whites, that will make the peak anti-sjw.

          • Will Rose

            Why do you have a picture of Haile Selassie? You are obviously not Rasta. just thought it was kind of weird. You should change that.

          • Tewodros III

            No.

          • Josef Joseph

            It seems to me that he is a typical nigra from the US with an identity crisis.

        • Elilla Shadowheart

          Far worse then that. There’s a hardcore feminism brand in S.Korea that makes western feminism look demure and submissive.

          • Michael Aronson

            What does this “hardcore feminism brand” in Korea do that’s so much worse than anywhere else?

          • Elilla Shadowheart

            Poison male children, commit pedophilia and rape in order to mentally damage children. Those are just the top cases, haven’t gotten to the violent knife attacks and so on yet.

          • Michael Aronson

            What cases? Sources, please.

          • Elilla Shadowheart

            Just search “magalia” you’ll find multiple translated articles from korean into english and you can weep at the inhumanity of it. Or use machine translations.

          • Michael Aronson

            Megalia is an internet site. They don’t commit crimes. Their entire point is they mirror the claims of men who do commit crimes. You’re not very smart.

          • Elilla Shadowheart

            Wrong. That’s like saying when someone posts on an antifa site that they’re going to burn down buildings and smash public property that it didn’t happen. Maybe you should go take a trip there, going by your picture you’d be a prime target.

          • Michael Aronson

            Anyone can make any claims they want. That’s not how facts work.

            Watch: I murdered five people today. I will murder five people tomorrow.

            Do you gullibly believe both claims?

          • Michael Aronson

            Pro-tip for the future, kid: before you just believe any claim, you should try first looking for evidence (a news or police report, for example) that a crime was committed in the first place. It will help you look less stupid.

          • Josef Joseph

            Korean radical feminist from Womad (a sister site of Megalia) drugged and sexually abused a boy in Australia.

          • Michael Aronson

            Wow, one crazy woman committed a crime. Is that it?

        • Michael Aronson

          Korea doesn’t have a premier. It has a president. She wasn’t part of any society, she was colluding with a childhood friend.

      • Tewodros III

        More like against whites.

        • Elilla Shadowheart

          Can’t tell if mentally slow, or simply brain damaged. On the upside, I’m glad you’ve made it this far in life.

          • Tewodros III

            Can you tell me why whites shouldn’t be ridiculed?

          • Elilla Shadowheart

            Tell me why you’re so fixed on race?

          • Tewodros III

            Are you joking?

    • Tewodros III

      It wouldn’t be the first time whites humiliated others culture.

      • uF

        And it shouldn’t be the last either.

        • Tewodros III

          White genocide is good.

          • Michaela Dawn

            You are showing you are “scum” by saying that. You realize you are being SUPER racist. You sound like hitler…

          • Tewodros III

            Hitler did nothing wrong. He killed white people. Stalin did too. Truman was a white genocide supporter.

            King Leopold the second was a good man.

            No he was a devil, who plague Congo. But you’re white so to you that’s good. Fucking white.

            Haitian niggers eating mud pies and starving to death is good.

          It’s like you admit you’re scum, but yet you complain about anti-white people. There’s nothing wrong with hating people who don’t consider you equal.

          • Josef Joseph

            niggers are not equal to European people. They are stupid, gorilla-like apes.

          • Tewodros III

            And ya fuck us anyway and vice versa.

  • butters

    ha ha… looks like korean losers aren’t immune to being pathetic undereducated MRA meshbacks. if this is what men are like in south korea, I’m rooting for Kim Jong Un to take over the entire peninsula so that he can put these man babies into camps.

    sometimes you just got to love the asians. at least they have the balls to stick up for their history and culture unlike here in the west where we turn our historical figures black, trans, female etc to appease the feminists.

      Bullshit cracker, you turn their asian culture into a whitewash mess in media. Don’t go Pan-Asian when left does it.

    This is not the first time they have done this garbage. In civ 5, Portugal and China received two of their worse leaders to represent them just because vagina. Fuck, the Portuguese expression “Maria vai com as outras” was born because she couldn’t make a single decision by herself!

    • Noire2B

      You forgot to mention there was one decision she made. We don’t usually talk about it because it fucked us over badly.

      • José Pedro Ferreira Joaquim

        Fleeing to Brazil and going insane… Those are the things she’s remembered by. What an amazing leader…
