China is expressing their strong opposition on THAAD, this time, with a group of young rappers.

Rappers sanctioned by the Chinese government recently released a music video regarding the issue on the deployment of THAAD or Terminal High Altitude Area Defense.

CD REV, one of the rappers of the group, revealed that they received help from government officials to complete and promote the video on foreign websites.

In the MV, the Chinese rappers speak up on behalf of their nation, and tell South Korea that ''Your big brother is annoyed'', ''You're going too far''. The group also chants, ''We say no, no, no'', to emphasize China's displeasure on South Korea's actions.

China Eases up on THAAD Boycott of Korea

China appears to be easing up on a wide-ranging unofficial boycott of Korean goods and service over the stationing of a Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense battery from the U.S. here.

The state-run People's Daily, a bellwether of official opinion, repeatedly referred to Korea as a "close neighbor" recently after a telephone call between President Moon Jae-in, who is skeptical about the deployment, and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping on May 11.

This was closely followed by the dispatch of a special envoy to Beijing, former prime minister Lee Hae-chan, last week.
