這兩天網上流傳著的一段假新聞,大意是指Youtube發現韓國方面企圖塑造K-pop極受歡迎的假象利用利用程式切換帳號,將K-pop的音樂短片及MV等的觀看次數輕易地灌破百萬之數,情況日趨嚴重而令Youtube使出殺手鐗,一下子將所有來自南韓的ip位址封掉,並不將相關的瀏覽人次計算在內。原新聞最先見於近日出現反韓流娛樂的日本,上了Yahoo Japan,後來證實為惡作劇而刪掉:

Youtube announced that they will be blocking access from Korea. Users with the country setting 「Korea」 will not be able to upload videos, their views numbers will be monitored which means that they won’t be able to affect the number of views.

What is the reason that forced them to take this step? The truth is, Korea in order to support it’s own Kpop, manipulate the number of views into becoming more than 100,000 views. Normally Youtube will count one view for each user, but in Korea they have tools and use multiple accounts that allow them to fake increase the number of views.

Because of that, Girls Generation has more views than world stars like Britney Spears and Avril Lavigne. The ban is the measures taken to prevent such attacks.

整件事聽來有點難以置信的可笑,然而細心的人找出了更不思議之例子,就是作為當今韓風天團的Super Junior,在Youtube當中的一齣MV《SORRY,SORRY》有著二千八萬多萬的觀看次數,沒有關閉留言功能之下,上載兩年多來卻只有一個留言,這個有可能嗎?如果你寫了一篇文章有十萬人看過,而得不到一個回應的話也難以讓人說服吧。所以從中推測,南韓有關方面作假並非全不可信,只是Youtube沒有將這事提升到地區層面上去。

好啦,答案其實是上載的唱片公司SM.Entertainment是有開放留言卻將所有留言處於審核的狀態之中,痴線。
