Reuters reveals fallout from China/South Korea row in sports and entertainment

Reuters exclusively reported that Chinese golfers on the U.S. women’s tour may decide not to play in a tournament next month in Hawaii sponsored by South Korean conglomerate Lotte Group, a sign that fallout from a diplomatic row between Beijing and Seoul over a missile defense system is increasingly spilling into the sports world. Reuters also reported that China is discouraging millions of mainland consumers from viewing South Korean dramas and variety shows, reflecting a wider cultural freeze, with South Korean singers and actors blocked, dozens of Korean-focused blogs suspended, tourism bans and product boycotts.
