Two cents on UNHATE : Benetton Campaign

UNHATE campaign

I talk to Korean students about issues regarding the relationship between North and South Korea. If I was a Korean and I saw this poster, I would probably be shocked. It's clearly an advertisement but I don't know how people would react to it. We are not always in the position to dictate how people outta feel about their neighbors.

I am all for love and peace. But the imagery, as controversial as it is, is not going to inspire people to unhate. *just saying my honest opinion here, you have to let me finish first though* The message was clear, two sides who have enough reason to hate each other or are in opposite sides of issues most of the time are kissing.

*stops to think* *shakes head* Too shocking to have any lasting effects except. *close window*

But honestly, if there are those can be moved by ads like this, then the world might be a little better for it. But I honestly don't think any North Koreans would look at this picture and not go "Anniyo!"



  1. hoping and praying for North and South Korea to be united, it has been too long, hoping their leaders will make way for peace and friendship

  2. my husband says that in middle east a kiss between to man is just a notion in saying hi, but stil it is weird for me eew

  3. following you here too hope you follow back

  4. they were enemies but most of the time kissing,huh? that's odd!

  5. There are a lot of issues that they are trying to resolve. But North Korea keeps bombing SK and attacking and the latter keeps sending propaganda against NK. It's a vicious cycle.

  6. I know this a controversial ad campaign but the Vatican will sue everyone using the same ad where the Pope kisses an Imam. Thanks for this post.
