MySQL import: JSON with binary character set

If you see this error when importing MySQL files:

cannot create a JSON value from a string with CHARACTER SET 'binary'

You should find and replace parts of the import file with the following regex:

Find: (X'[^,\)]*'), and replace by: CONVERT($1 using utf8mb4)

I get it, ads are stupid. I even feel dirty putting them here. But to be honest, they actually make a difference. So maybe you'd consider whitelisting this blog?
