Japanese model and actress Kiko Mizuhara was baptized with malicious comments after she revealed her stance on sexual violence in the Japanese entertainment industry.



The Japanese film industry is buzzing with news of sexual assault one after another.

Following the recent revelations of a woman that she had been sexually assaulted by a famous Japanese director and actor Hideo Sakaki, director Shion Sono, a master of the genre film, was also caught up in allegations of coercing an actress to have sex with her as an excuse to appear in her work.



Among them, the producer of the movie 'Ride or Die' in which Kiko Mizuhara appeared was also pointed out as a perpetrator of sexual assault.

In response, Kiko Mizuhara suggested the introduction of an 'Intimacy Coordinator'.

'Intimacy coordinator' refers to a position in which an actor closely grasps the shooting environment and actor's condition when filming scenes such as physical contact or exposure and plays a supporting role.

It was the opinion that this could prevent actors from feeling sexually uncomfortable or sexually harassed during filming.



Also, through an interview with Japanese media Weekly Munchun, he said, "In the entertainment industry, this aspect continued to exist, and I have also heard many sexual harassment remarks from male directors. The other party may have said it unconsciously, but there was still a feeling of injustice." There is an implicit compulsion to think that acting is a great actor."



However, her remarks about Mizuhara's convictions were attacked by netizens.

There were comments saying that such remarks were meant to get people's attention, and there were also malicious comments demeaning people of mixed race.



Mizuhara Kiko revealed her feelings about being baptized with malicious comments during a live broadcast on SNS on the 13th.

Mizuhara said she felt it was right for her to talk about the issue of sexual harassment in the entertainment industry, but she was increasingly attacked because of the fact that she was half Korean, she said, with tears in her eyes.



She continued, "I know there's nothing I can do, I know there's nothing I can do, but it hurts a lot. It's really scary and frightening," she appealed.



Kiko Mizuhara was born to her American father and a Zainichi Korean mother.

In the past, she became a hot topic after dating Big Bang G-Dragon, and she recently reported that she was dating a fashion designer.
