(Observer Network News) “Korean traditional culture theory” is here again.
Recently, Chinese actor Wu Xize posted on Weibo that the hat he wore originated in China, and was chased by Korean media including SBS and Chosun Ilbo for “popular science historical knowledge”, SBS took out Goguryeo murals to “prove” that South Korea used hats a long time ago, but Goguryeo is an ancient Chinese frontier regime.
Later, SBS also declared, “Instead of investigating who is the ancestor of China and South Korea in the matter of hats, it is better to see who inherited and carried forward the culture, which is the core of the study of traditional culture.” ”
Recently, “A Piece of Ice Heart in a Jade Kettle” starring Wu Xize and Zhang Huiwen is being broadcast, which tells the story of Shuzhong’s female predator Mo Yan (played by Zhang Huiwen) and the royal four products with a knife guard Zhanzhao (played by Wu Xize) jointly solving the case.
At the beginning of this month, the male protagonist of the play, Wu Xize, posted on Weibo, saying that in the process of watching the play, he often saw someone in the barrage area saying that the hat he wore in the play was very similar to the “hat of Korean costume”, so he wanted to correct it, “This hat originated in our country, and then spread to other countries”, he said, “I really can’t see my own traditional culture being misunderstood.”
Under Wu Xize’s Weibo, netizens praised it one after another, “Culture should not only be inherited, culture needs to be promoted” and “The three views are too positive, like”.
Relevant information shows that the hat is also known as the bucket hat, bamboo hat, bamboo hat, hoop hat, as early as the Neolithic period, there was a bamboo fence weaving technology related to the production of the bucket hat. In addition, there is a sentence in the “Book of Poetry Xiaoya No Sheep”, which also shows that the hat was used very early. It is reported that the hat was a common clothing of the Mongols during the Yuan Dynasty in China, and was later introduced to Korea.
On the 7th of this month, the “Chosun Ilbo” suddenly “named” Wu Xize, and after repeating Wu Xize’s words, it claimed that Wu Xize’s words caused controversy on Chinese social media, and some netizens believed that “Chinese traditional hats are not like that, this hat is too Korean” and “this is far from Chinese traditional culture”.
Immediately afterwards, “Chosun Ilbo” began to revisit the old matter, saying that last year, when the second part of the Korean costume drama “Kingdom” filmed by Netflix was broadcast, Korean netizens “accidentally discovered” that the hats in Chinese costume dramas were very similar to those in “Kingdom”. Later, in the Chinese online drama “Fourteen Years of Chenghua”, the hat worn by the protagonist was targeted by Korean netizens: “This is our Korean hat”, because Koreans believe that this Korean hat has a “feature” – the top is flat.
At that time, this matter also “troubled” the Korean cultural circle, according to the JoongAng Daily, many South Korean experts also believe that “[the hat appearing in the Chinese TV series] is indeed Korean style”, for the same reason as Korean netizens said, “The top of the Korean hat is flat, China is round, easy to confuse.” When Wikipedia introduced the hat, it also specifically mentioned that “it is easy to confuse with China.”
But the interesting point is that in a video article released by the Korean media about this controversy, it is also popular that around the 15th century, Korean hats were round, and it was only at the end of the Joseon Dynasty that the top of the hat became flat…
After “named” Oh Hee-taek in the “Chosun Ilbo”, yesterday, the Korean media SBS also “followed” …
In its article, SBS “popularized” a historical story, saying that China did not have the tradition of wearing hats after the Three Kingdoms, in addition, there is no record in Chinese documents (hats originated in China), and Korea is different, SBS used the mural in the shrine of the ancient tomb of Goguryeo as an example, saying that the mural has the appearance of a hat, which means that Korea has a hat since a long time ago.
Where is the hat in this picture?
SBS is marked;
It is worth mentioning that the Goguryeo mural tombs are known as the “treasure house of Northeast Asian art”, recording the special culture of ethnic minorities in ancient Northeast China, and the tombs of Chinese Goguryeo nobles, including some mural tombs, have been included in the World Heritage List.
In the aforementioned article, SBS endorsed Korean “culture” with Chinese murals, and talked about the importance of hats in Korea, “Korea is the most popular area for hats, and it is also a place where special materials such as bamboo and horsehair are used, and there are craftsmen in Korea who have developed related technologies, and the most favorite hats is indeed our country.”
At the end of the article, SBS began to talk to the mud, “Instead of investigating who is the ancestor of China and South Korea in the matter of hats, it is better to see who inherited and carried forward the culture, which is the core of studying traditional culture.” ”
This so-called conclusion is also “pointed”, “inheritance and development is the core”.
It’s just that I don’t know if SBS noticed that Wu Xize’s statement was talking about “origin” at the beginning … Can you not get off topic?
