Chinese Regulator Says Blockade of S. Korean Film/TV an "Emotional Issue"

From Variety:

Zhang Hongsen, head of China’s powerful media regulator, says that the country’s blockade against South Korean films and TV shows is an “emotional issue.”

Zhang, deputy director of the State Administration of Press Publication Radio Film and Television (SAPPRFT), was speaking on Friday in Beijing on the sidelines of the Communist Party’s once-in-five-years National Party Congress.

China has boycotted many South Korean goods and services since July 2016, when the Korean government agreed to allow the deployment of the American THAAD missile defense system. The South Korean government argues that the system is needed to protect itself from a nuclear-armed and belligerent North Korea. China says the system’s radar can be used for spying.
