Japanese Comedians Beat Up Female Korean Martial Artist

New America Media, News Report, Peter Schurmann, Posted: Aug 11, 2011

South Korean netizens are in an uproar over a popular Japanese variety show that featured three well-known comedians beating up a female Korean martial artist, reports South Korea’s Chosun Daily.

According to the report, Soo-young Lim, 27, was seriously injured during what was supposed to be a mock match with the three Japanese comedians on the show “Flames Sports Competition,” which aired July 3. All three of the men were wearing protective gear. Lim, a mixed martial artist, wore only gloves.

According to another report in the Dong A Daily, the three comedians -- Toshiaki Kasuga, 31, Hiroshi Shinagawa, 39, and Koji Imada, 45 – are known to have backgrounds in martial arts. During the fight, Lim was several times knocked down by kicks from the men that were executed “as skillfully as pros.”

Lim, who goes by the moniker “Beautiful Fighter” in her native Korea, and her management team have reportedly demanded an apology from the show’s producers.

This latest spat comes as tensions between Seoul and Tokyo are on the rise, fueled in part by an ongoing territorial dispute over a set of islets in waters midway between the two countries.

According to the Chosun article, South Korean netizens are planning to launch a cyber attack on several right-wing Japanese sites on August 15, which commemorates Korea’s independence from Japan in 1945. Japanese netizens in turn say they plan to launch attacks against several high profile Korean Web sites, including that of the presidential house


So... these guys are comedians and this is a comedy show. I watched the whole thing looking for the funny part. I didn't get it.

These guys obviously have some training, just not enough to get in the ring with a man?

Is this funny in Japan? Maybe someone more enlightened can explain it to me?

Dude, I think everyone understands that most cultures and nations have different tastes in humour. But here we have 3 japanese men with martial arts backgorunds fighting a female. Those knees being thrown by the dudes are freaking harsh man. Its not even a gentle spar. The dudes are going at least 80-90%!

What I don't understand is with the political difficulties currently happening betwwen the 2 nations, why was this allowed to go ahead? National pride? Patriotism?

Definitely not only some. Judging by their movements that must be several years of training, possibly experience in competition. That kind of movement and composure during a fight I'm usually beginning to see at guys with 4-5 and more years of 2-3x training/week. I guess they've been in martial arts from childhood/adolescence on at least as a hobby. And they were probably 20-40lbs heavier than her.
