The former Japanese ambassador to South Korea has published a book titled “I’m glad I’m not born Korean”
The book written by Masatoshi Muto will hit Japanese shelves on June 1. It’s uncertain why Muto, once regarded as a pro-Korea Japanese diplomat, penned the controversially titled book.
The title may be inspired by Natsume Sōseki who wrote the same thing after visiting Korea in 1909.
SEE: the pictures of Korea at the time.
「余は幸にして日本人に生れたと云ふ自覚を得た」「余は支那人や朝鮮人に生れなくつて、まあ善かつたと思つた」(I thought I was fortunate because I’m not born as a Chinese or Korean)
FYI, Datsu-A Ron was written in 1885.
History is repeating itself… Koreans really need to learn true history.
