So you may have heard that China has been boycotting Korean products to retaliate against the placement of THAAD in South Korea as it pose as a threat towards China.

I would like to know if Chinese people are actually boycotting Korean products and feel threatened by THAAD. I've read on Chinese forums and I'm having trouble understanding if some people are genuinely hating on Korea and boycotting it or if it's propaganda/government trying to convince people to boycott.

Also, why doesn't China boycott USA instead when THAAD is an American equipment controlled by the Americans?

I know this could end up as a heated argument but please, I just want a discussion and to understand China's viewpoint. Thank you  with love

This is America.   We don't follow what happens in the rest of the world.  I never heard of this.

Middle Americans and those who purport isolationism are usually willfully unaware of the outside world. Foreigners often find it shocking how little Americans know about the outside world and the US itself. A foreigner is more likely to understand the US better than an American. This has gotten so bad that schools are now teaching students how to pass an immigration exam since immigrants understand The basics of US government better than US citizens.

The whole THAAD thing is the Chinese trying to quell any possibility of deterrence to its claim to the waterways in the region. They see THAAD as a precursor to disrupting Chinese "Manifest Destiny". THAAD only shoots down medium range ballistic missiles and has become paramount with the increasing hostility of NK. You would think it would be an understood to place these kind of deterrents in place when your neighbor has lined your border with artillery. China will not directly stand against the US. The US and the Euro group are its primary trading partner and a weakening US economy weakens all other economies. Without those 2 groups China would fall into economic collapse. Obama devastated Russia economically with ease and with how unhinged Trump is, he could economically neuter China if they oppose him. They are trying to be careful but realize that The Euro group would have no  choice but to boycott China if Trump rails against them. With the rise of populism it isn't far fetched to think.
