“Internet centrist” on Sparkling Korea

everytime earthquake hits

Filed under: Korea — fuga @ 3:00 am

An earthquake struck (7.2 magnitude, 3 died) northeastern Japan this mourning. I’m interested to know how Koreans react this time because Koreans are known to behave very badly(especially on the web) when an unfortunate thing happens to other country.

A couple weeks ago, a Chinese newspaper reported “Japanese cried and Koreans laughed” regarding the Sichuan earthquake. Also, when the Virginia Tech massacre happened, initial reaction of Koreans and Korean newspapers were just terrible.

But those are nothing compared to how Koreans have reacted to Japanese earthquakes and accidents. Koreans went wild and laughed and made fun of those who suffered. It goes back at least 1995 when Great Hanshin earthquake took place. At the time, a boy were selling newspapers saying “Earthquake in Japan! Heaven’s punishment!”. And this bad behavior continued when Noto earthquake and Amagasaki rail crash took place.

Many Japanese blogs and some magazines picked up those and translated to Japanese. So it is relatively known to Japanese internet users what Koreans’ been saying. Many Japanese were upset and began to hate Koreans. And some began to do the same to Koreans. Yeah, that’s the “kenkan ryuu” I think. Lately, Chinese blogs began to pick up those bad behaviors and comments of the Koreans. And I’m seeing the same ill-feeling toward Koreans among Chinese people as well. I think the more Chinese know about Koreans the more Chinese will begin to dislike Koreans if Koreans keep doing this kind of childish behaviors.

So, how about this time? I don’t see much Koreans celebrating Japanese death as much as I saw the last time. Koreans are growing up? Maybe. Or maybe Koreans began to realize they are making enemies around them. Or they are too busy beating up their president.

However, you can always find if you know where to look. If you read Hangul, enjoy.

  1. Didn’t South Korea offered to help Japan in 1995 earthquake? According to Wikipedia, “Japan refused help from foreign nations including US, South Korea, Mongolia and UK.”

    The reactions of Koreans’ are inexcusable. I read the comments that netizens wrote and it makes me sad. (Yes, I can read Hangul)

  2. My friend is in Japan for study abroad! I hope she’s okay. I know many Koreans live in Japan. I wonder how Korea would react if they found out that one of those who died in earthquake is Korean. That would be interesting to know.

    I read your other post (or is other blogger’s?) about Koreans making fun of September 11 attack. 3000 people died and they have the nerve to say we deserved it from the reaction to 2002 tragedy. The fact I’m 1.5 generation Korean and how they’ve saying about it, really makes me angry.

    I’m glad that I’m living in US.
