Chinese K-pop stars, Pinoy celebs react to PHL's arbitration win vs China


Local celebrities and prominent personalities join many Filipinos who celebrated the decision of the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) to support the Philippines' case against China.

In a 497-page ruling, the judges at the arbitration tribunal in The Hague ruled in favor of the Philippines, saying: “There was no legal basis for China to claim historic rights to resources within the sea areas falling within the 'nine-dash line.'”

Filipinos took the decision very positively by posting messages on social media; some even used #Chexit as hashtag.

On the other hand, China rejects the tribunal's ruling in West Philippine Sea case.

Xinhua, China’s official news agency, described it as an “ill-founded” ruling that was “naturally null and void.”

It seemed that it is also the same sentiment of most Chinese celebrities.

Chinese K-pop stars used their social media accounts to post a flag of China and a hashtag that translates to: “China cannot become any smaller.”

Here are the posts of f(x)'s Victoria, EXO's Lay, miss A's Fei and Jia, FIESTAR's Cao Lu, and former EXO member Luhan.
