some little kid is impersonating CJ Entertainment or some other Korean studio and adding fake Korean cartoons on imdb

This impersonator is hijacking obscure Asian cartoons and shorts and adding fake posters, credits, info, companies, etc. and pretending they're crossover events with characters that almost no one outside of Korea has heard of. Please find these pages, correct them, and ban this user from hijacking this site again. I'm begging you. These fake pages are hijacking a lot of people's imdb filmography pages and I'm sure they would be pissed off if they found out. Examples of the hijacked pages i'm talking about include pages of Doraemon, Shimajirou, and Pororo installments that either don't exist, or have completely fake info on them.

Antacid: Please post links to one or more of the specific pages that is partially or completely fake, and explain what is fake on that the particular page or pages.

With that information, the IMDb staff may be able to figure out which contributor is responsible for the fake information and stop him from doing so, and possibly they may also be able to remove the other fake data he has submitted.

The wrong credits of Doraemon and Shimajiro have not been deleted yet.

To gromit82, Champion, as you know I am in the process of deleting the wrong credits to Doraemon and Shimajiro, however I'm having a problem with getting the fake credits deleted since I keep getting a message of unable to verify and getting them declined as they're clearly incorrect. I want them to be approved but I don't know how to convince them.

I need to know what to do now, I've done everything I could to remove the fake credits to these film pages including.

Yes AntacidTrip97 is correct when he said there was fake credits. I'm trying to clean them out since the credits don't appear in other movie page websites including Wikipedia, Fandom.

I want to get the credit pages to be more accurate but unless the imdb staff is willing to take my word for it in deleting wrong credits, I'm unable to remove the incorrect credits off of those pages. By the way this fan credit hack on Shimajiro and Doraemon film pages has caused many of the actors including Korean and English actors to have incorrect film credits which I'm trying to clean out. Including Flavor Flav.

Is there anything else I can do? I'm worried and anxious for these film pages that still has incorrect credits. I need the imdb authorities to clean out these credit imdb pages.

Look these up: Rocky and Bullwinkle (2000), all the Shimajirou movies, all the Pororo movies, Moshi Monsters Movie, the 2015 Doraemon movie. Try to find anything else that this cyberterrorist hijacked, remove all the fake stuff from their IMDB pages, replace them with correct titles. (all or most of the credits, plot, companies, staff, etc. are fake on these pages.)

By the way AntacidTrip97 CJ Entertainment was actually officially involved with The Little Penguin Pororo's Racing Adventure (2013) imdb which is the only company credit I know so far. I know because I watched Pororo's Racing Adventure 2013 both the alternative English version with Smash Mouths music and the original South Korean version on Youtube and Amazon Prime.

But yeah, you're right about CJ Entertainment not being on Shimajiro and Doraemon. I'll get the imdb pages cleaned as soon as possible.

This little kid responsible for this seems to have two unhealthy obsessions: one for excessively cute small mammals and one for Korean cartoons and credits. I'm worried that these, especially the mammal one, would turn into a fetish if this kid isn't banned from IMDB. Remember this. Last time I knew he hijacked something, he was impersonating a Korean movie studio (CJ Entertainment or one of their subsidiaries, I think)

*sorry, I meant "replace them with all the correct info you can find on these films. I strongly recommend you look at the ending credits for these films, If they exist, on Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, or DVD or Blu-Ray, etc.

To AntacidTrip97 As you know, I and the imdb staff have just cleaned out the incorrect credits to Pororo Racing Adventure 2013, Pororo, the Snow Fairy Village Adventure 2014, Pororo3: Cyberspace Adventure 2015. Which is available on Youtube.

I didn't get all of it because the credit information is overwhelming me. By the way, all 3 films have English credits which made it easy to clean up. I'm sorry you feel frustrated, I feel very annoyed by the imdb prankster and I'm working to get the affected imdb pages cleaned out.

not sure if I should do this, he/she is anonymous, as are both you and me. So it would be too difficult and possibly an invasion of privacy.

AntacidTrip97 did you know that the Doraemon credits are now up on Doraemon 2005 page. Also you are right, there are fake credits featuring Flavor Flav and Woo- Bin Kim voicing as Father time which is incorrect. Here's the 3 credit screenshots for proof. Johnny Youg Bosch is in this TV show and I've met him at Salt Lake City FanX and got his Doraemon autograph.





I hope the list of credits is proof enough to clean out the Doraemon 2005 credits list. Let me know if the imdb staff will get them removed. I'll start to remove the incorrect credits soon.

Is the culprit (vandal) under the age of thirteen or is he/she being called "kid" just for insult's sake? The revengeful name-calling is unnecessary and potentially unruly. The culprit is a vandal and a prankster, not a terrorist.

I am assuming the culprit is a "kid" because the only things he is contributing is fake information related to the kids shows he likes

Someone has to do and all updates are mainly done by volunteers. Nothing will be taken down until it is proved to be incorrect. So, it's now up to you. Good luck.

Sorry, I want to, but I have autism and seeing fake info on highly reputable websites is enough to send me into a tantrum if I look at it too long.

Hi Antacid, 

We have filed a ticket with our data editors to investigate the titles. Given the amount of data attached to each title this could take some time, thank you in advance for your patience whilst this is being looked into. 

Thanks

Does anybody at imdb company know how to read Japanese credits?

Because there are youtube videos of Doraemon including Doraemon Nobita's Chronicle of The Moon Exploration 2019 at this youtube link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YII_EQ5GdvU from the user ANIME FANS and the credits start at 1:46:38 and I cannot read the Japanese credits.

Please help me find where the official voice actor credits are, because I have no experience in Japanese, I'm still struggling to learn Japanese. Please have someone watch the end credits of that video who is an expert in Japanese reading and get back to me if you can thanks.

Hi, CrosswalkX. At the very start of the end credits sequence in the YouTube upload you've referenced, the cast pairings of characters and actors, by moniker/name, are shown. For whatever reason, the designers of the sequence left gaps between some of the lines of the credits.

By the way, is there any way I can look up the track contribution imdb history of whoever the imdb user was who originally put incorrect credits of Shimajiro and Doraemon film pages.

I want to know who the imdb user was who made up fake credit names for these Japanese Anime movies because the imdb user who contributed to Shimajiro and Doraemon film pages didn't do their research on these films. Let me know if it's possible to see the imdb contribution history or can you tell me who was contributing made up credit names to those pages I want to know thanks.

By the way CJ Entertainment Korean company wasn't involved with Doraemon or Shimajiro but they were involved with Pororo's Racing Adventure 2013.

With the exception of the IMDb site authorities, there is no way for anybody other than a person logged into the IMDb user account through which the submissions were made to view records of those submissions.

To AntacidTrip97 yes you are correct, I have noticed the vandalism on Pororo, I was able to get most of the fake credits deleted off of 3 Pororo pages including Pororo Racing Adventure, Pororo the Snow Fairy Village Adventure and Pororo3: Cyberspace Adventure, however there's still films like Shimajiro, Doraemon that has incorrect credits, including the following list.
There's also Doraemon Films and TV show that have been vandalized including the following list
There's also fake imdb titles that should be cited for deletion including the following list
  • Princess Strawberry Rabbit (2019) taken from Shimajiro in Heroland 2019
  • Izzy Got the Frizzies (2019) Taken from Phineas and Ferb (2007-2015)
  • Paboos (2019)
I already got the incorrect photos removed so leave the official screenshot images up.

There's also an India movie called Octopus (2015) which I have tried to fix with official correct image screenshots but the original credits are mostly wrong and needs to be deleted and this is not a short film, it's over a 2 hour film. Also Flavor Flav has some incorrect credits like Shimajiro and Doraemon that needs to be deleted from his profile page.

Please help me and AntacidTrip97 out by deleting almost all off the credits since they are fake credits. There's about 14 vandalized movie pages and 3 fake imdb titles that I need the staff to clean out. There's no way to verify them but please get them deleted because I know the credits are incorrect and I want to restart the imdb pages on a clean slate.

The Credit IMDB submission policy update idea.

Since the Shimajiro and Doraemon imdb pages I've mentioned has been affected with incorrect credits. I would suggest the IMDB staff update the submission policy in the future so that when ever someone adds credits to an IMDB page, the IMDB users will be required to verify where they got the credit names from, that way we can prevent credit misinformation from spreading on these IMDB pages like Shimajiro and Doraemon imdb pages. Meantime Shimajiro and Doraemon credit imdb pages needs to be cleaned out since they still have fake credits.

By the way, I'm going to track down the 7 Shimajiro films and get them on DVD at cdjapan.co.jp The only problem is they are Region 2 and I won't be able to understand them, so I'll have to watch them on a region free DVD player.

I wish there was a Region 1 version of Shimajiro with English subtitles and English credits. But for now I'll try to find and watch Shimajiro and the Rainbow Oasis on DVD since I can't find it anywhere online or the online videos. I'm sad the 6 Shimajiro films have been taken down off of Amazon Prime in Japan website, I don't know when they'll be up again.

I'll let you know and update you, if I see the Shimajiro films so that I can help out with fixing the Shimajiro imdb credit pages.

To the imdb staff I've just received an email by the Benesse Company staff, they're going to investigate the Shimajiro film imdb pages I've listed on this forum so I'm waiting for their response.

So far the imdb pages of Shimajirô to fufu no daibôken - sukue nanairo no hana (2013) and Gekijouban Shimajirou no wao!: Shimajirou to ookina ki (2015) have started to get incorrect credits deleted.

However, there's still 5 other Shimajiro film pages with incorrect actors including

Gekijouban Shimajirou no wao!: Shimajirou to kujira no uta (2014)
The Shimajiro Movie: Shimajiro in Bookland (2016)
Gekijouban Shimajirou no wao!: Shimajirou to niji no oashisu (2017)
Shimajiro and the Rainbow Oasis (2017)
Shimajiro and the Rainbow Oasis (2018)

I've submitted credit deletion requests earlier to remove the wrong credits but it has been declined. Please reply to the forum. By the way, I still haven't been able to watch Shimajiro and the Rainbow Oasis yet as I need to get the Region 2 DVD movie as soon as my family will let me buy one.

Please let me know if the Benesse representatives has responded in the imdb forum page.

Shimajiro and the Rainbow Oasis pages credit pages needs to to be cleaned up.

To the imdb staff and users. I have just seen Shimajiro and the Rainbow Oasis on my PC computer on DVD and my theory proved right. You have 3 Shimajiro and the Rainbow Oasis pages with fan hack credits, here's the fan hack credit screenshot example.




Now notice in the writing credits how in the writing credits there's names which do not relate to Shimajiro and the Rainbow Oasis including (character created by: Woochi), (character created by: Yoohoo & Friends) and such.

Also notice in the other crew how there's CJ Entertainment and DC Digital Content Comics written next to the job names. I've watched the end credits to this film and CJ Entertainment was not involved nor was DC Digital Content Comics which is obviously Warner Bros property which owns DC comics. And also Pixar Animation Studios was never involved with Shimajiro.

There are some correct credit names in this film such as Isamu Hirabayashi ... (directed by)
Hiro Takashima ... (co-director) as they were officially involved in the film. 

Now here's the example list of what correct actor credit names should be in this screenshot.



The correct Japanese credit actors involved in this film are CowcowMummy D.Minoru InabaOmi MinamiMei SatôSaori SugimotoMiki TakahashiHanako Yamada and Takumi Yamazaki. The only credit incorrect is Moon Nam-Sook. And they have been showing up in Shimajiro and the Rainbow Oasis credit pages including at this Toho Animations website link https://www.toho.co.jp/movie/ods/shimajiro2017.html and I saw Cowcow and Mummy D. name show up in the Japanese credits. There's about 10 actors not over 100 actors in the Shimajiro page.

There's no English dub of this film sadly, so the English actors like Flavor Flav did not play in this film at all. I couldn't read the Japanese symbols in the end credits so I'll need an English translator to translate the credits when I get the end credit video uploaded.



Please imdb staff reconsider investigating the pages Gekijouban Shimajirou no wao!: Shimajirou to niji no oashisu (2017), Shimajiro and the Rainbow Oasis (2017), Shimajiro and the Rainbow Oasis (2018) please get the incorrect credits cleaned out I need the Benesse representative worker from the company here on the forum page. The Shimajiro film credit pages to be cleaned out as that's my favorite Anime film and I'm very protective of it. Let me know if I can pull up my deletion number submission requests. Thank you for your time.

You are only looking at this from a narrow point of view. All the credits that you say "Are Not There" are indeed NOT THERE in your version that you have viewed.

But versions licensed in other languages have credits that you WILL NEVER SEE. You cannot possibly KNOW who has a license for the distribution rights everywhere on the planet. You are making assumptions based on your narrow field of knowledge.

Conclusion.

Unless you are 100% sure that you have viewed every possible language version, then you should not be altering this database.

You are only viewing what is probably 25% of the actual screen credits. How can you be the final say on who really is supposed to be there in the database based on that 25%?

YOU CANNOT. be 100% sure now can you?

STOP what your doing. You do not have the info needed to make these giant mass removals. And no amount of reasons why on your part will change these facts.
