A couple of AfreecaTV streamers from Korea landed in hot waters recently after a video of them taken during their trip to India made its way online. The video shows the two women dancing suggestively in front of the local men in the country.
One netizen took to the popular Korean online community platform Naver to share the viral clip online. “They are traveling in India wearing revealing clothing. Even the local men are stopping to stare at them,” the caption reads.
As revealed in the post, one of the broadcasting jockeys (identified as BJ “A”) hosted a livestreaming session on AfreecaTV while travelling in India with her friend, “B”. During the live broadcast, the two played loud music and danced provocatively on the streets in scantily-clad outfits.
The video also shows many men staring at the two ladies, with some of them even held their phones up to record them dancing. Not only that, when the two women asked the locals to cheer for them, most of them appeared rather uncomfortable. The post was immediately flooded with negative remarks from Korean netizens. Some even called them out for embarrassing the country with their shameful antics.
However, the two women then explained, “We didn’t go on a trip to India just to attain balloons (donations to pay AfreecaTV streamers). We wanted to show you a new setting, and we wanted to do a fun broadcast. We also asked the local people about our outfits, and they said they had no problems with how we dressed. They only told us to stay away from the slums. We also asked the guide and the station staff, and they allowed us (to make a livestream at the area).”
They further clarified that there were also a few people who had helped in blocking the crowd for them too. For those who are interested, watch the video here:
