Declaration: the author of this video admit the picture of the man with the stone was taken after the conflict when he was complaining the Chinese students to the Korean media. The author apologize for the confusion caused by this mistake. Until now, no evidence has been given yet on who actually used that stone to attack whom.

The picture of the man with the pinchers is still believed to be taken when he was protesting and the pinchers belong to him. The man was believed to be showing how people from N Korea escaped by using the pinchers to cut the abatis. Besides, it was totally illogical to accuse that the Chinese students would take something like the pinchers to welcome the Olympic torch.
Before hard evidence pop up, the author refuse to believe the Chinese students had brought something like pinchers in advance plotting to hurt people.

The second and third story were no problem so far.

The author made this video in a very short term as a response to the Korean media who had accused the Chinese students for all the conflicts broke out in Seoul. And later death threats over the Chinese students were spreading on the Korean Internet. The author was just trying to help people to listen to the other side of the story and realize the Chinese students were really NOT against the Korean people.

The Chinese embassy subsidized some of the students on the traffic fee. It just want to help the students who want to watch and cheer for the Olympic torch relay because the 2008 Beijing Olympic is a festive event for all the Chinese people in the world. If anybody thought the Chinese government asked the Chinese students to fight against the Korean people, I have to say they are sadly wrong.

The Chinese students who broke the Korean law should be treated equally as the Korean citizen after carefully finding out the cause of the conflict and examing all the evidences. The Chinese government expressed sorry for those who were hurt in the conflict. But since the Chinese government was not behind the conflict, there is no reason to ask the Chinese government to apologize for its citizen's behavior abroad.

Some people have pointed out the mistake in the video would hurt the author's credibility. I hereby declare I would take this consequence and apologize for the confusion caused by the mistake again. So long as the Korean people can try to understand the Chinese students and examine the truth based on evidence, the author would be grateful.
