The Korean branch of Japan's DHC issued an official apology.
The cosmetics firm has been under fire as discriminatory and false remarks about Korea were aired through the company's in-house channel, and uploaded on the internet, fuelling anger from Korean consumers and netizens.
Yoon Jung-min has the full story.
The Korean branch of Japanese cosmetics and dietary supplement supplier DHC said it officially apologizes over some recent controversial and inappropriate comments that were aired on the company's in-house broadcasting channel and later uploaded on Youtube.
DHCKorea said it does not agree with the discriminatory and false remarks made by DHC TV. Moreover, the Korean branch said it will urge its headquarters in Japan to refrain from allowing such incorrect and offensive content to be aired in the future.
Beauty stores across Korea have condemned such comments and have begun to boycott DHC products.
"Major health and beauty stores have also joined the boycott by stop selling the products."
Olive Young halted sales of DHC products from their online store and replaced the products in offline stores. Other brands, Lalavla and LOHB's also stopped selling DHC products or halted new orders from the brand.
"Currently, our store do not sell DHC's products. We don't know yet when we can start selling those products again."
Actress Jeong Yu-mi, who has been one of the faces representing the company, announced on Monday that she requested the suspension of her contract with DHCKorea, and asked the company not to use her image to promote its products anymore.
