Sam Ochuri interviewed the BBC on the racist controversy.

Currently, on the BBC homepage, there is an audio clip containing his interview with the title of'Sam O'Churi: Black Man Fighting Racism in Korea'.

In the voice clip, Sam Ochwi-ri revealed his feelings about the racism controversy over the graduation photo of Uijeongbu High School, aka'Kwan-jak Boys'.

"I came to Korea as an international student for the first time, and I started working in entertainment to reduce my distance to Africans. I know that the graduation photo of Uijeongbu High School did not wear black faces for the purpose of degrading black people."

"Blackface is taboo in many black and multicultural countries," he argued.

Sam said, "In Korea, the historical meaning of Black Face was unfamiliar, so there was a lot of debate. There were many reactions that everyone did not understand."

In addition, after the controversy, he clarified and apologized, saying, "I tried to distort my face as much as possible, not degrading Koreans, but it would have seemed to them."
