    1. Huh? But she's always been American


    2. I really hope this is fake?


    3. Huh? But don't Chinese people consider Koreans ethnic Chinese anyways?


    4. ????????????


    5. ?? Isn't she American? So they consider Americans Korean-Chinese too now?


    6. Please tell me this isn't real. Just how much disappointment is she going to give us


    7. Jessica is American ... She's never been naturalized as a Korean


    8. This is seriously... Quite low


    9. Jessica fans are already saying that she's 100% going to participate in the show, but why do I feel like it's a shame that she's participatingㅠ


    10. What a disappointment

  • American is a nationality, not an ethnicity though. :huuh:

    From my perspective, I would only consider myself American as well. Sure, if you trace my family back long enough we were Dutch, but my family has been in the US for over 200 years now.


    So all we've ever know for generations is America and American culture.


    What does that make me?

    I left my heart in LA again. Please continue taking good care of it.

  • 3. Huh? But don't Chinese people consider Koreans ethnic Chinese anyways?

    oh nah not at all

    She gonna be in for a doozy, especially for the holier than thou rhetoric from the old guard chinese people regarding korea.


    disclaimer I know I'm stereotyping chinese people but a ton of middle aged to old people in china kinda grew up in a environment that taught that korea used to be just a small splinter nation from china, that korea can never be on the level of china because it used to be a part of china.


    but they also conveniently don't consider koreans, chinese.

  • Jessica and Krystal grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area with a large and historic Chinese-American population and they started careers in China after SNSD. They trained at SM in a different era when China was considered a natural market (and home) for ethnic Koreans.


    They don't have the same prejudice against Chinese as South Koreans, especially the current generation

    Why do I watch survival shows? This!

    Well Dutch are white so no one will see you as anything other than American.


    Asian-Americans will always be seen as something foreign even if their families had been here for generations.


    If Jessica and Krystal were treated like ethnic Dutch or any other white ethnic Americans they wouldn't have ended in Korea and then China to persue their careers. KPOP (like Chinese cinema) had been an avenue for many Asian-Americans in performing arts because getting into those fields in the US is nearly impossible.

    Can't disagree with this... My SO is Italian from Italy and still people assume HE is the American, not me.
