Washington and Seoul plan to deploy the U.S.-developed Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-ballistic missile system on South Korean soil before the end of the year, a long-envisioned response to North Korea’s repeated missile tests and threats to attack South Korea, Japan and the United States.
Yet Beijing, a longtime ally of Pyongyang, sees the system as part of a U.S. strategy to contain China, since it could also be deployed against Chinese missiles.
Chinese authorities have denied visas to South Korean pop stars who frequently perform on the mainland; rejected imports of South Korean cosmetics; and scrubbed at least five enormously popular South Korean TV shows — some with hundreds of millions of Chinese viewers — from Chinese video streaming sites.

Kim Jae-joong’s 2nd studio album named favorite K-pop album in China for 2016
SEOUL, March 15 (Yonhap) — South Korean singer Kim Jae-joong’s second full-length album has been chosen as the most popular K-pop album in China for 2016, his management said Wednesday.
Kim’s “NO. X” topped the ranking recently announced by the major Chinese video streaming platform Youku, C-JeS Entertainment said. The ranking was based on album reviews and grades posted on the popular media review sites in China.
Released in February last year, “NO. X” topped iTunes charts of 39 countries around the world upon its release.
“Kim is the only solo artist among the singers ranked in the top 10 posts, which proves his unchanging popularity in China,” the agency said.
He is scheduled to perform in Thailand on March 18 and Macao on March 25 as part of his solo Asian concert tour that began in Hong Kong on Saturday.
The JYJ member was discharged from the Army in January after two years of mandatory military service as a South Korean citizen.
JYJ‘s Jaejoong has been killing the music charts in China.
C-JeS Entertainment said, “Kim Jaejoong has taken the number one spot in the ‘gold’ program on a Chinese music specialty channel, CCTV15. The program airs three times a week for thirty minutes, and shows the most popular Korean music. Jaejoong’s song ‘Just Another Girl’ has been number one for three weeks straight. Moreover, he’s been number one on Yinyuetai’s weekly music charts for four weeks straight.”
CCTV is a huge Chinese performance station with about 22 channels and 1,000,000,000 viewers. CCTV15 is one of those 22 channels, and relays information about a variety of music.
Jaejoong’s first solo album “WWW: Who, When, Why” was released on October 29, and has been a hit even since before its official release. With the album, Jaejoong has hit the top of the iTunes charts in 12 countries including Japan, Taiwan, China, etc. He has also been number one on Japan’s Tower Record’s daily chart, the Oricon weekly chart, and more.
The singer currently has a concert coming up on December 7 in Nanjing, having completed performances so far in Seoul, Yokohama, and Taiwan.
