Korean train is the first among Asia….

Talking about trains in Korea, it reminds me of number of conversations with South Koreans a few years back.

They claimed Korea was the first country among Asia to introduce trains or trams as a proof of how Korea was superior and modernized herself without help from foreign countries.. It turned out KBS a Korean TV aired program about it. So I had to tell them “I’m sorry that is not true”. Every Korean except one person got pissed off at me and accused me of distorting the history even though I merely pointed them the fact politely….

The one guy who really wanted to know the truth, asked me (or more like challenged me ๐Ÿ™‚ ) to show him the proof. So I did. A whole bunch of them. There was trains running in Kyoto earlier than in Seoul. He accepted that (highly unusual for a Korean from my experiences). And he contacted to KBS. I don’t know it is because of him, but now most people (not everyone!) know that KBS story was not true.

I had to debunk Korean claims like this one by one… there are as many as stars …. man, I feel dizzy. South Korea, as a country, is seriously twisted in my opinion, but I believe Koreans are not, at least not all of them are….
