Women’s volleyball mercenary Russo went to East Sea to play on SNS “Sea of ​​Japan”

Helene Rousseaux (Belgium), a mercenary of women’s volleyball Hyundai E&C, was surprised by the East Sea and then posted a photo on social media (SNS) and wrote “Sea of ​​Japan”, causing controversy.

On the 15th, Rousseau posted a picture of the sea on his Instagram story and wrote “Sea of ​​Japan”.

‘YEONG JIN HAESUYOKJANG’ is tagged in this post, so you can guess that it was taken at Yeongjin Beach in Gangneung, Gangwon-do.

Netizens accused him of saying, “This is intentional”, “It is written as the Sea of ​​Japan in the Korean sea”, “I don’t know, so it may be”
When controversy, Rousseau deleted the post. Later, in an Instagram message sent to a netizen, Rousseau captured and sent a Google map marked Sea of ​​Japan, saying, “Thank you for telling me about the problem of notation in the East Sea. I wrote it down because it said Sea of ​​Japan on Google Maps. I had a short thought. I apologize.” Google Maps is known to display a specific name differently depending on the user’s country. Usually, when searching in Korea, it looks like East sea, but in some cases it is displayed together with the Sea of ​​Japan. One netizen pointed out that there is a problem that only the Sea of ​​Japan can be seen when viewed without expanding.
Even with such an explanation, netizens are responding, saying, “I can’t understand how to write’Sea of ​​Japan’ by looking at Google Maps in’Korea Sea’.”
