Poodle scam story a hoax

OK, so many Koreans are still believing it or the news finally got Korean media. But they haven’t gotten the latest updates yet. I’s a hoax!

Many South Koreans right now keep trying to make fun of “stupid” Japanese. Come on! That urban legend has been around for a year in Japan. There has been no Japanese media reports about any Poodle scam.

“일본 인종= 개와 양을 구별하지 못하는 민족” –

“수렵민족에게 벼농사와 불교를 들여온 민족인데 오죽하리오. 다른 민족을 모방하는 기술만 뛰어나 머리가 텅텅 비었수다”

Obviously Koreans are so excited to hear that Japanese are that “stupid”. Do they believe whatever they read online? Please. I guess they believe what they want to believe.

credibility of Korean media…
일본인 수천 명이 양을 개로 속아 사다” – 입력 : 2007.04.28 13:41 The Chosun Ilbo

일본인들은 개와 양도 구별하지 못하는 까막눈이라고 한다면 분명 지나친 말이 될 것이다. 하지만 실제로 일본인 수천 명이 호주와 영국산 양을 푸들로 알고 구입하는 웃지 못할 사건이 일어났다.

Korean trash-newspaper Hankyoreh couldn’t miss this opportunity either.

And Yonhap news too…?

  1. I read that story just recently and I’m glad it’s a scam.
    It did sound too stupid to be true.

    Good start on the blog. I like the title!
