"Strongly Support the Integrity of China's Territory"

Gen Z released an official statement in Korean and Chinese on its official Weibo account on Tuesday. "We firmly respect and support China's sovereignty and territorial integrity," Gen Z said. "It has been confirmed that the post has not been thoroughly reviewed regarding the contents of Gen Z's social media. We apologize for this and deleted all the information as soon as it was confirmed."

This is an apology for a promotional post about CDZ Taiwan-related events posted on Gen.G's Facebook page. This is because Chinese fans protested when Gen.G called Taiwan a country in a promotional article. Gen.G immediately deleted the post and posted an apology.

When the apology was posted, Korean fans strongly protested. Gen. G. directly stated on the apology, "We respect and support China's sovereignty and territorial integrity." Critics pointed out that the expression "the integrity of the territory" can be interpreted as a story that supports the Chinese side in all regions where China is engaged in territorial disputes.

Korea has been in constant conflict with China over the Northeast Project. The game industry was also plagued by related issues. The Shining Niki incident in 2020 is a case in point. At the time, Chinese game developer Paper Games marked hanbok costumes added to Shining Niki as Chinese costumes, and suspended their accounts or banned chatting after domestic users protested. Paper Games later quoted an article by the Central Committee of the Communist Youth League saying, "We support 'One China' and our position is in line with our country," and suddenly announced the suspension of game service,

As the controversy grew, Gen. G later issued an additional statement, saying, "We sincerely apologize to our fans who are expressing concern due to the recent incident," adding, "Gen. G is pursuing global business and promoting the development of the esports industry through offices in Korea, the U.S., and China. In the process, we apologize for causing a stir by inappropriateness of some word choices and expressions while providing services to esports fans around the world in various languages."

"We are striving to create an equal competitive environment for everyone beyond the country and race with a fair and just Olympic spirit at the center of our values, and we want to maintain a clear neutrality on certain political views and ideologies," he said, adding, "We will further strengthen these values and deeply apologize to all fans who were worried about this incident and do our best to prevent this from happening again."
