K-pop fans reacted swiftly to the avowals of allegiance to China .

At least eight mainland Chinese pop stars and one each from Taiwan and Hong Kong are publicly stating their support for Beijing 's one- China policy, eliciting a mixture of disappointment and understanding from fans

Some see the public pronouncements as the latest examples of how celebrities and companies feel pressured to toe the line politically in the important Chinese market. Yet they also coincide with a surge in patriotism among young Chinese raised on a steady diet of pro-Communist Party messaging.

K-pop fans reacted swiftly to the avowals of allegiance to China. Some called it shameful, while others were more understanding.

Ellyn Bukvich, a 26-year-old American who has been an EXO fan for five years, said many young fans will probably support Zhang and his message because of his status as a K-pop idol.

In the case of Hong Kong, a former British colony handed back to Chinese control in 1997, Beijing maintains a"one country, two systems" policy in which the city is guaranteed greater freedoms than those on the mainland until 2047.

Zhang terminated his partnership with Samsung Electronics last week, accusing the South Korean mobile giant of damaging China's"sovereignty and territorial integrity."

In 2016, Taiwanese K-pop star Chou Tzu-yu made a public apology for waving the Taiwanese flag while appearing on a South Korean television show. A Chinese vilification campaign against her led to a backlash among some Taiwanese, who at the time were in the midst of a presidential election eventually won by Tsai Ing-wen, who is despised by Beijing for her pro-independence stance.

"I support the Hong Kong police," Liu, a naturalized U.S. citizen, wrote on her Weibo account."You can all attack me now. What a shame for Hong Kong."
