jealous stranger but father of two graduates from john hopkins, launches an internet crusade against rapper, based on disparaging statements from jealous cousin -- all because dude was a rebel in his youth but still managed to graduate from stanford with both bachelor and masters degree and became a hip hop star in Korea, whereas cousin who is a classical violin player ends up working in a patent office, and the stranger just upset his hardworking daughters don't have the same success this guy did who doesn't fit the korean mold.

somehow, they succeed in convincing people, end up breaking rapper mentally and became a hermit for several years -- people that arise to defend rapper are believed to be part of a conspiracy, even though the korean police and stanford university has provided proof that the rapper is who he is and what he is.

Reminds me a bit of the birther movement for some reason.

that's the best summation I could come up with -- it's just incredibly farked up, and the guys that ruined the rapper's life are completely unrepentant.

Amazing how a career can be taking down by a jealous family member and an idiot member of the community because your personal style/way of learning is different from the traditionally accepted cultural mold.

It's not just the internet. People have been using newspapers, TV and radio to do this sort of thing for decades as well.

I think we all know at least one sick fark who delights in starting rumors and manipulating groups for their own pleasure. But they were always limited to the town or group of people they know. Now that we've got global communication, the only thing limiting the spread of their lies is the one in a million who questions what they hear, and they're often drowned out by the bleating of the herd.

Students also typically write a thesis to attain a master's, and yet Lee admitted that he never wrote one. (His program didn't require a thesis.)

Ahhh, so it wasn't a real Master's.

Still sucks that some jerkwad ruined this guy's life and shat upon his legitimate accomplishments (real or not, getting two degrees in less time than it normally takes to get one is still an accomplishment) out of petty jealousy.

Great plan! I went back and reread again (I have a bad habit of skimming if I think while reading) and I don't think that cousin could come off not sounding like a complete jerk. I hope some form of internet karma comes around and bites him on the ass.

2012-04-24 02:32:47 PM  
When Lee walked in, he looked crazed. He was no longer a cocky hip hop star. His hair was a bushy mess. Fidgeting with an unlit cigarette, his eyes darted nervously around the room. People in the lobby were looking at him. I asked how he was feeling.

"They're saying I'm not me, and I can't convince them I am," he mumbled. "It's like I'm living in a Kafka novel."


That statement is absolutely incredible.

It's a very real thing around the world.

"We sometimes find ourselves changing our minds without any resistance or heavy emotion, but if we are told that we are wrong we resent the imputation and harden our hearts. We are incredibly heedless in the formation of our beliefs, but find ourselves filled with an illicit passion for them when anyone proposes to rob us of their companionship. It is obviously not the ideas themselves that are dear to us, but our self-esteem, which is threatened. ... Few of us take the pains to study the origin of our cherished convictions; indeed, we have a natural repugnance to so doing. We like to continue to believe what we have been accustomed to accept as true, and the resentment aroused when doubt is cast upon any of our assumptions leads us to seek every manner of excuse for clinging to them. The result is that most of our so-called reasoning consists in finding arguments for going on believing as we already do."

Another Dan Lee, who like the rapper had graduated from Stanford in 2002, was soon besieged. "One day I started getting random messages from people in Korea who were abusively angry at me for allowing some rapper to steal my identity," says this Dan Lee, who works at a product-design firm in Wisconsin. "I had no idea what they were talking about."

His totally-not-envious older cousin makes some on-line comments that Lee didn't deserve to get the glowing recommendations he did from his high school teachers, and shouldn't have been admitted to Stanford.

A random Korean dad with two daughters at John Hopkins, who probably remembers the work his children did to get into medical school, reads the cousin's rants and assumes that this slacker rapper he sees on TV couldn't possibly be a genius that exceeded his daughters' scholastic skill, and must therefore be lying.

Korean-birtherism occurs.

FTFA:

In July 2011, after writing the article for Stanford Magazine, I flew to South Korea to track down some of the online persecutors-and to see how Lee was faring. He was no longer performing or recording and now rarely left his apartment, in a working-class neighborhood of Seoul. He had become a hermit at age 30.

I arrived in Seoul within days of the online release of my article. It emphasized the fact that Stanford had clearly confirmed Lee's academic record and professors had vouched for him. There could be no doubt that he had attended the university and graduated exactly as he claimed. The evidence, it seemed to me, left no room for argument.

I was wrong. While in Seoul, I was barraged by outraged emails from readers who remained convinced that Lee's diploma must somehow be a forgery. They sent detailed treatises noting how the positioning of commas and conjunctions on the document raised suspicions. If I refused to see that, many claimed, I must be part of the conspiracy. "You made a big stinky shiat with your name tagged on it," one man emailed me.

Not really. Stylistically rap in Korea refers strictly to the quick 'singing' style. It doesn't hold the negative, or self centered theme that american pop and rap holds.
Epik High is one of the less controversial groups in Korea. Topics are not sexual or violent. Often highlighting legitimate social issues that should be addresses like suicide (look for there song One), social abandonment of the disabled (Run), and monsters that eat your girlfriend (Wannabe).

While we're cutting checks, I will stipulate that I've never seen Dan Lee in my entire life, /anywhere/. I'll even testify to it in a court of law. "Nope, I've never seen that guy before in my life".


That's what's so funny. Lee's cousin, Cho, said that the only reason that Lee got into Stanford was because of Cho's great reputation on campus, in addition to "stealing" his idea for the admissions essay.

It's like they think Stanford only has a few hundred students instead of 15,000 undergrad and grad students.

it seems odd that when I google Seungmin Cho, patent consultant, The phrase "Great people of east Asia don't need you. We will own this century, and the next, and the next, until all non-Asians are essentially pounded to submission" doesn't immediately accompany it. That seems odd to me. You would think when you google Seungmin Cho the phrase "Great people of east Asia don't need you. We will own this century, and the next, and the next, until all non-Asians are essentially pounded to submission" would be the first thing that popped up.

Try it yourself. Search Seungmin Cho, patent consultant, and see if the phrase "Great people of east Asia don't need you. We will own this century, and the next, and the next, until all non-Asians are essentially pounded to submission" pops up.

Because people like to believe conspiracies, because his patent-attorney cousin was jealous of his success, and because some random Korean father of two John-Hopkins graduate daughters living in Chicago decided to aggressively promote and inflate the cousin's envy-driven libels.

I'd imagine there are also deeper sociological reasons specific to Korea that laid made something like this happening there likely(like how high-pressure their education system, how many burn-outs and "losers" it produces, and how those factors have created a population there both willing to believe that "the game is rigged" in favor of a certain class, and that cheating is as much an issue of social inequality as of personal moral turpitude), but that'd be pretty speculative, and I think you're asking more about immediate causes anyway.

People keep condemning the cousin, who is by all means a detestable cockbag, but the real bad guy here is the 56-year-old tiger dad in Chicago. The cousin just hated him, while EUNGSUK KIM OF CHICAGO, IL is the mastermind behind TaJinYo (the forum that was created for the purpose of destroying this kid.)

Yep. I always get a chuckle out of the fact that I can't stand most US pop music for how generic and similar it all is while Japanese and Korean pop acts have been keeping the genre innovative for at least the last decade.

That's why I think it was totally ethical and hilarious, after having explained why he'd never seen this man, to go ahead and take the money. If they don't want to hear how reasonable it is that two random students wouldn't bump into each other, well why not separate the proverbial fool from his money?

Epik High is one of the less controversial groups in Korea. Topics are not sexual or violent. Often highlighting legitimate social issues that should be addresses like suicide (look for there song One), social abandonment of the disabled (Run), and monsters that eat your girlfriend (Wannabe).

You just described what hip hop is but apparently hip-hop isn't good enough for you Korean farks so you want to act like what they do is somehow more legitimate, it isn't.


Actually, when I first began writing this what I wrote "Rap in Korea is basically what American's consider hip-hop." I changed it because that is technically what rap is, which is why Vanilla Ice was considered a rapper.

Am I to presume that the monsters involved have lots of tentacles?


Sadly, Korea is no Japan in the tentacle department. Now that I'm not posting from my phone I can include a link. The video is actually a parody of the Korean monster movie The Host, which did happen to possess some tentacles. It also has the plus of not so subtly blaming Americans for the monster.

heroes_die: When Lee walked in, he looked crazed. He was no longer a cocky hip hop star. His hair was a bushy mess. Fidgeting with an unlit cigarette, his eyes darted nervously around the room. People in the lobby were looking at him. I asked how he was feeling.

"They're saying I'm not me, and I can't convince them I am," he mumbled. "It's like I'm living in a Kafka novel."

I can relate. I've got my own psychotic Fark stalker. Pretty much every time I post, the little asswipe will post anything I've ever posted on Fark with which he disagrees.

He also gets involved with vast conspiracy theories based, mostly, on the timing of my posts. If I go take a dump, there's a three-page conspiracy theory about it waiting when I get back - at least some days. He's quite ignorant, but copypastas information from the Web, trying to look like some sort of scientician. I've called him on it, repeatedly, which is probably the origin of the stalking. If he put as much effort into tracking ANYTHING scientifically as he does into tracking all my posts, he could be a published PhD. by now.

Fortunately for me, the creeper doesn't know where I live, other than the landmass, or my full name. I also don't have a rap career to ruin, so I've got that going for me. And, I have to admit, I sometimes post in such a way that I *KNOW* I'll set off his Asperger's Syndrome, or ass-burner's, or whatever it is that he has. It's simply fascinating to watch him wrap himself around his own axle. I know it's not nice to use the illness of another for amusement, but I've already got a window seat, and a Kosher meal (always a good idea, even for goyim like me) reserved, so it could be worse

In this great, albeit rare, self-mockery video, the 'conspiracy theorist' is not an invented archetype. People form groups here, and sometimes receive national government recognition, for certain conspiracy theories. One that was popular a few years back was that non-Koreans were coming to Korea with the express intention of knowingly spreading AIDS. This ridiculousness actually led to a nationwide HIV-testing mandate for incoming workers. Anyway, this is truly funny and rather well-made. Enjoy.

Yes. He should totally give up a lucrative career at which he apparently excelled (not my cup of tea), because some jealous lunatics made up a convoluted conspiracy theory about him.

Good to know. Sad, but good to know.


To begin with, my "pretentious" comment was more a joking response about how pretentiousness isn't an exclusive thing to white folks, which the joking comment I was responding to sort of implies. As to the phrase in question, I just think it's a silly way to refer to music artists. It certainly isn't a common usage in criticism, and I've never seen a singer use "nom de plume", or any variation thereof, instead of "stage name". Do critics even use that for author pen-names anymore? I certainly haven't read a review that did in the last decade.

The whole point of that first paragraph up there is that the "nom de" construction isn't an immediately obvious one in critical writing in the US (in or out of academia), which makes its use a decision of style. He chose to use it; he didn't just grab a common turn of phrase. And why choose it? For the same reason any author makes a stylistic decision in non-fiction writing; to make a statement about himself. He wanted to let the reader know that he, a culture writer at Wired, was the sort of guy who put French phraseology into his articles. Now, if this were the 1920s, or if he were writing for the New York Review of Books, then that wouldn't be a big deal; in fact it'd be taken for granted that he'd do that sort of thing. But in a Wired article about a Korean pop star? Of course it stands out; that's why he used it.

Now none of it's a big deal. I'm not sitting here stewing in resentment for an author who's name I didn't even bother to read, over a single word choice. Diction isn't srsbsn to me, or anything. However, if your take away from an off-handed comment about archaic phraseology is that the US public education system is a broken down hellhole, then I'm going to have to write a three paragraph essay explaining the usually unspoken reasoning behind why I, and certain other commentors on the internet, might find such things moderately ridiculous.

Most universities in North America are dropping thesis projects altogether or strongly warning students away from thesis projects. It is sad and lamentable and motivated entirely by money. They are making grad school cheap, in the worst sense.

Also, there is a lack of faculty advisors and a lack of students capable of long meditative projects. Of course, that was always the case, which is why grad school was prestigious.

After having looked through that article, and this type thing is something I've wondered about for some time, my question is this. There are people who treat any evidence, no matter how shaky as reasonable evidence if not strong evidence if not outright proof they're right. Any evidence that they're wrong is misinterpreted, fake, something that doesn't matter or otherwise flawed. So clearly, they have chosen to believe the way they do. Yet they refuse to admit they have chosen to believe that way and tell the real reason why they so badly want what they have chosen to believe is true. Why is that?

Oh yeah? How long was your thesis, and how many publications do you have?

/at this point I should point out that *of course* I meant hard-core *Master's* programs, and that my thesis was fairly mediocre.
//PhD sucks even more

The master troll who spearheaded the hate campaign is now bitter that he's been outed and is being burned. He thinks Tablo should be the better man and leave him alone. Turns out he's a petty, arrogant, conspiracy theorist.

FTA: "In April 2011, Tablo who was cornered decided to sue me through his agency. Afterwards 'lowly things' like the President, media, college professors, and writers all came together to prevent me from returning to South Korea. The case hasn't even ended yet and now I am a criminal in South Korea."

Sweet Mother of God, he really is a male korean version of Orly Taitz

Wow, the rapper guy is back on the charts and the troll is seeing some consequences for his actions?

Nice to see a happy-ish ending.

Diarrhea Anne Frank:
Yawn. Normally I have your sad, attention-starved arse on ignore, but I had to see what that other guy was replying to. But here's what's what: You're really only an entitiy worth attention in climate change threads; and it's not because of your attention-whoring green text and the malformed spastic ideas your vagina finger type out, but rather because the replies to you are classic beatdowns. It's pretty difficult to believe that you - if you are similar to your gleefully smug, proudly ignorant, lying, moronic, Dunning-Kruger pinup boy of a Fark persona - have any actual human beings who give a danm about you.

I suppose it would be redundant to claim that "Diarrhea Anne Frank" is full of shiat...

Dr.Zom: it seems odd that when I google Seungmin Cho, patent consultant, The phrase "Great people of east Asia don't need you. We will own this century, and the next, and the next, until all non-Asians are essentially pounded to submission" doesn't immediately accompany it. That seems odd to me. You would think when you google Seungmin Cho the phrase "Great people of east Asia don't need you. We will own this century, and the next, and the next, until all non-Asians are essentially pounded to submission" would be the first thing that popped up.

Try it yourself. Search Seungmin Cho, patent consultant, and see if the phrase "Great people of east Asia don't need you. We will own this century, and the next, and the next, until all non-Asians are essentially pounded to submission" pops up.


It's nice to know Korea has its own version of the crazy, racist redneck who secretly feels like a failure at life and thus defensively goes after other races to feel superior. Of course their version graduates from Stanford, but still.

Nope Anne Frank is right here. You are a moronic attention whore who cries about being stalked. An idiot spamming constantly in green text. Clearly he doesn't want to be noticed.

Well, then, having some jackass keeping GeneralJim museum, with every post of mine cross-referenced, timed, and plotted on charts should give me massive wood.

[checks]

Nope. Nice feces-flinging lower primate behavior, though. Kudos.
