  1. The response is perfect <3 I live in Europe, and no I don't think the question was unnecessary, bc it is still a comm8n racist slur among respectless ppl.
    Clinical psychology already proved that point, that someone has trouble distinguish ppl that don't look like oneself and Ju Ji Hoon pointed that out, love it!
    I think mentioning it again and again builds sensibility for the topic (considering western variety shows its desperately needed, still)

  2. Question was offensive and not necessary . I am English , live in England , a CEO of an education foundation working with people from across the world (www.ODILS.com).
    I met yet a single person who either looks or sounds the same as another . God created us as unique human beings . Thought the answer was superb , just sad he had to answer it . More education needed at the magazine I feel .

  3. That’s such a witty answer~ What’s so savage about that? I would have cited Conan O’Brien and James Corden. You can call THAT savage. Although, I’m sure I can find some other people, if I really get into it!
    He called out Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise! All yo white people should be flushed with joy and pride!!!

  4. I don’t believe it’s a savage response, at all. It was a ridiculous question and racist, at that. Why would a reporter think it was appropriate? How would anyone reply to that negativity? His reply made me laugh. It was a great response to an awkward question.
