Marion Cotillard, Japan's Rising Sun flag cap out

French actress Marion Cotillard was in hot water for wearing a Rising Sun flag-patterned cap. Capture from the Instagram account of "usatabloid" French actress Marion Cotillard will dump her Rising Sun flag cap after learning the flag is an emblem of Japan's wartime aggression and colonization, reports said Wednesday.





The Japanese military used the flag during World War II.

Cotillard raised the eyebrows of online users, mostly Koreans, for wearing the disputed cap on July 6 (local time) at the Longines Paris Eiffel Jumping event ― a horse-riding competition ― in Paris.

Photos of the actress wearing the cap ignited controversy after they went viral. In the wake of the fuss, a Korean online user sent an Instagram message to Eliott Bliss, Cotillard's close friend and manager, explaining the flag's meaning. He also asked the actress to refrain from wearing the cap.

The user captured Bliss' message and posted it online Wednesday. In her reply, Bliss said the pair did not know about the significance of the flag, adding there were many items with the pattern in Europe. Cotillard rose to global stardom after appearing in several hit works including the films "Inception" (2010) and "The Dark Knight Rises" (2012).

S. Korean pitcher Ryu Hyun-jin picked for MLB All-Star Game after season's heroics


South Korean star pitcher Ryu Hyun-jin has received the golden ticket.

His efforts for the LA Dodgers this season have seen him selected for the MLB All-Star Game, becoming just the fourth South Korean in the history to get the nod.  Watchers say the 32-year-old's addition for the first time in his seven-year MLB career is an indication of how well he's been playing.




He currently holds the MLB's best ERA -- one.eight-three -- during his 16 games this season. Ryu's inclusion means he follows in the footsteps of other Korean baseball legends -- Park Chan-ho, Kim Byung-hyun and Choo Shin-soo. The All-Star Game will take place at Progressive Field in Cleveland on July 10th.

Yang Hyun-suk steps down from YG amid mounting pressure


Yang Hyun-suk, the chief producer and founder of YG Entertainment, is leaving one of South Korea’s biggest entertainment agencies following a slew of scandals that dented the company’s public image in recent months.

In an emailed statement Friday, Yang said, “I’ve dedicated the last 23 years of my life to YG Entertainment. It was my biggest pleasure to support the best artists and music and the only gift I can give to society and fans.”








“From today however, I’ve decided to step away from all responsibilities and positions at YG,” he said. His departure was soon followed by the resignation of his younger brother and CEO Yang Min-suk. In the statement, he said he wanted to put out a clear message following his older brother’s move. The surprise announcements come after several YG artists were mired in a slew of scandals including former iKON member B.I and Seungri of Big Bang.

Despite his official departure, Yang is still the largest shareholder of YG with a 16.12% stake, while his younger brother and CEO Yang Min-suk owns 3.31%.

Since the Seungri scandal broke in January, YG’s stock price has tumbled almost 30 percent. On Friday, the price ended at 29,500 won ($24.88), compared to 42,250 won on Jan. 28.
