US envoy to South Korea shaves off controversial moustache

The US embassy in Seul has posted a video on Twitter of US ambassador Harry Harris visiting a barbershop to remove his moustache months after his facial hair became the subject of unusual criticism.
Harris says he is shaving his moustache because of the summer heat and wearing a face mask, but the envoy has faced criticism for his moustache before.
Commentators have said his facial hair reminded South Koreans of that of Japanese governor-generals when Korea was a Japanese colony from 1910-45
