The fire in Urumqi city, Xinjiang, killed 10 people due to the excessive lockdown measures and sparked a “white paper revolution” in many parts of China. Recently, there have been many videos of police-civilian clashes. The South Korean actor Kim Eui-sung, who has appeared in such popular movies as “Train to Busan” and “Taxi Driver” had previously voiced support for the anti-extradition protests in Hong Kong. He once again defied pressure to post a protest video on Instagram, becoming the first Korean A-list star to speak out about this sensitive topic in China.

On November 29, Kim posted a video on the social network Instagram, in which a man wearing glasses holds a bouquet of flowers and shouts at the crowd, “10 people have died in Urumqi, who killed them? We all know in our hearts. How did 27 people in Guizhou die?” Unexpectedly, a second later, a police car came, nearly 10 policemen rushed to pull him into the car. they struggled, while the crowd also screamed in horror.

According to Aboluowang, Kim expressed his feelings and translated the words in the video caption into Korean: “The police rushed over and pushed him into the car, but he continued to scream. What’s going on in China?” He then posted a message to netizens, “Send me more videos and I’ll share them.” He also revealed that the video was sent to him by a friend of his, and many Chinese netizens thanked him in English for speaking up.
