Digital-Camera inside Gallery(디시인사이드 갤러리) is an Internet community site in South Korea. In short, it is also called DCinside(디시인사이드) or DC(디씨). DC is the center of South Korean Internet pop culture. As can be seen by the name, the main purpose is to share photos or images.

Originally, there was a lot of information related to digital cameras in the early 2000s, but now that the digital camera market has collapsed, most of the pictures posted on DC Inside are non-DigitalCamera photograph, phone pictures and pictures captured on the Internet.

The site is close to 4chan or Reddit in the U.S. Indeed, there are so many different kinds of bulletin boards, such as 4chan and Reddit. There are bulletin boards based on a variety of topics, including entertainment, politics, games, prestigious universities, academic, education, health and sex. It has also been strongly influenced by the U.S. alt-right culture since 2017.

Unlike 4chan or Reddit, however, DCinside tends to refer to bulletin boards as 'Gallery'. (For example, bulletins related to BTS are referred to as 'BTS Gallery'.)

Culture[edit]

DCinside has a tremendous impact on South Korean Internet culture, both positive and negative. It is the center of Korean Internet culture, but at the same time it is the center of all kinds of hate speech and fake news circulating on the Internet.

The basic mindset of DCinside users is extreme 'Hedonism'. DC members often refer to themselves as 'gallers'.

It is difficult to generalize DCinside as the atmosphere varies widely from gallery to gallery. But what's clear is that DCinside's giant gallery has no "respect" for others.

Since most of the users are young korean men, there are many cultural stories that suit young korean men's tastes.

Many male DC members have aversion to Korean women, but they have sexual delusions about Japanese women and white women. They want to be sadists when dealing with Japanese women. but they want to be masochists who are sexually conquered by white women. In a word, they are perverts. Think of America's "Incel" or "Yellow Fever".[note 1] They also like Arab women very much because they think they are just as obedient as Japanese women.

They is far-right, but ironically negative about his korean conservatism and has a critical inclination toward his country.

They are Asian with a high probability, but they desperately want to be 'honorary whites.' They think they are inferior and ugly because they are Asian.

DCinside members are interested in subculture of the West and Japan.

Many DC members use "disabled" as a swear word[note 2], and say homosexuals should be beaten like Russia. (Some of them even defend Maxim Martsinkvich.)

However, there are also some liberal DCinside members. They do not often express hatred toward women, sexual minorities and the disabled, but even they are not completely free from Western(or white) supremacism. (For example, at LGBT Gallery, white people are good people because they respect homosexuals on average, but non-white people do not respect homosexuals on average, so they are bad people. For them, the average value is absolute. In Gallery, where there are many women, they praise "Western men" and abhor "Eastern men.")

What is certain is that more than half of all the neologisms frequently used on the S.Korean Internet came from DCinside. Of course, most of those neologisms have a lot of jockeying to do with their daily lives that are non-discriminatory or unrelated to their hatred of minorities. This may be considered to be the only positive aspect.

Celebrities' Coming Out[edit]

DCinside is often used by many celebrities, regardless of their political inclinations. Many celebrities in South Korea certify on their own message boards.

In particular, South Korea's popular singer and actor IUWikipedia's W.svg frequently posted letters of authentication on DCinside.[1]

Think of some of the U.S. and British celebrities authenticating to "reddit." It's just like that.

A political stand[edit]

DCinside was born in 1999 and was a liberal community at the time, but as of after 2008, many galleries became right-wing.

Most of the users are young men who are extremely negative about political correctness and social justice issues. However, women usually make up an absolute majority in the Gallery related to male entertainers and the Gallery related to sexual minorities. Some male DC members support Masculism.

But it should be noted that Gallery, which has a large number of women, is also far-right. (The irony is that these are Gender issues in a liberal or radical feminist.)

However, unlike 4chan, DC Inside has a wide variety of users, and some galleries are liberal.

One thing for sure is that every gallery in DCinside has an aversion to non-west areas, aversion to non-white people (the Asians themselves also abhor), and a tendency to worship the West. The same goes for a handful of liberalists using DC. Of course, the vast majority of users are never white!

The majority of DCinside members have aversion to S.Korean politics. Most DCinside members abhor mainstream parties such as LKP and Minjoo. and very anti-communists.

Some DCinside members support the Bareunmirae Party. But most DC members are said to be more attracted to the right-wing populist party in Western Europe and Donald Trump than to the Bareunmirae Party. DCinside members abhor North Korea and China very much, but the U.S. and Russia worship.

Western countries are quite liberal and more humanistic compared to other regions. It is true that the West is certainly a more developed and more human rights-oriented culture in this regard. But DCinside is extreme enough to advocate the imperialism of Japan, Russia and Western countries and U.S. alt-rights.

Some male members of DCinside make this argument. White women are superior, so it doesn`t matter if you insist on being Feminist. But Korean women are inferior colored people, so they don't deserve to claim to be Feminist." n fact, there are many white supremacists making this argument on DCinside. Of course, they are Asian, not white men![note 3]

Ironically, the majority of DC members are pro-choice friendly. Also, they are mostly anti-natalists. But they are more of a far-right pessimist than liberal. DC members are Alt-right but by no means Korean-style conservatives. They are Very contemptuous of Korean traditional culture and korean oriental medicine(한의학).

DC members tend to be liberal in matters related to military human rights and welfare. It abhors Korean mainstream conservatives who are hindering the improvement of military human rights in S. Korea.

Many DCinside members like Western right-wing populist politicians such as Donald Trump and Marine Le Pen. But they are more like having vague fantasies about the West and white people than being nationalistic. (In fact, Korean nationalists (especially left-wing nationalists) dislike Japan, while DC members like Japanese subculture next to Western culture.) DCinside members think liberals like Justin Trudeau make superior Western culture inferior through uncivilized multiculturalism. However, as explained above, they are far from the S.K. mainstream far-right. That is why it is also favorable to Western radical politicians. They are usually alienated in the South Korea. So.. some are also favorable to socialists such as Jeremy Corbyn and Bernie Sanders. However, they are very negative for mainstream liberal politicians such as Barack Obama and Angela Merkel, including both left and rightists.

(However, it is an exception for white people and the West. They truly worship white people and the West.)

Note[edit]

  1. South Korea's alt-rights claim that Korean women have small breasts, ugly face and bad personalities. On the other hand, they think Japanese women are good, obedient and obedient to men. They have a sadistic delusion of Japanese women. On the other hand, they want to relieve their masochistic libido by obeying white women because white women are superior, have good body shape, and have mysterious faces.
  2. True, human rights for the disabled are weak in the South, and there are many cases of using the disabled as abusive language among the general public, but DCinside members belittle the disabled too routinely.
  3. That's why they have extreme opposition to the South Korean feminist, but they don't have any objection to the 'beautiful white woman' feminist like Taylor Swift.
  4. There are two reasons for this. South Korea has a fairly conservative social culture, and the mainstream extreme right is forces unrelated to the West's alt-right.
  5. Basically, South Korea's populist right-wingers are aiming for 'Asian values' and don't really like white people and Western culture. South Korea's alt-rights, on the other hand, are likely to be a non-mainstream subculture forever, at least in the South, instead of entering mainstream politics, because of their large Western cult, Asian hatred and white supremacist tendencies. Perhaps that's why the South Korean press isn't shedding light on the South's alt-right.
