I don’t really care about sports, but .. this may be worth mentioning because I think this is one of the many examples of Korean racism toward Japanese …
The attitude of many South Koreans to Japan today, combing admiration, envy, hatred, and arrogance qualifies as racism against Japanese… not just a “Japanophobia” or “Pro-Japanese scare”
A poor kid.
This teenage college student put a Japanese flag on the “Comfort women statue” and someone called the police. And the boy was taken away to the police station by the police…
For the first time, NK officially admits..
The North’s official Korean Central News Agency said on Tuesday that artillery units tasked with striking US bases in Japan fired 4 ballistic missiles simultaneously under the watch of the country’s leader Kim Jong Un.
OK.. North Korea seems like they want to start a war against Japan.
Stop fucking around and just reunite with South.
Just do it without outside interference(aka HELP) once in your history…Korean people!
Popular South Korean actor Kang Dong-won is under fire for an ancestor he has never met, about whom he talked about in passing in an interview ten years ago.
In a 2007 interview with Chosun Ilbo, Kang boasted that his maternal great-grandfather, Lee Jong-man, had been a “great person.” Kang’s interview wasn’t problematic until this year, when reports began to surface that Lee wasn’t so great after all, ironically around the Mar. 1 holiday that commemorates Korea’s anti-Japanese independence movement in 1919.
A report by Dispatch, a celebrity news outlet, brought to public attention that Lee was in fact a prosperous businessman whose activities included sending care packages to Japanese soldiers in the 1930s, when Korea was a Japanese colony. Also a politician, Lee collaborated with the occupying Japanese governing body. In 2009 Lee was listed in the Biological Dictionary of Pro-Japanese Collaborators (chinil inmyeong sajeon), as a Japanese sympathizer and collaborator.
Like I said….
Not healthy society… no no
They can not enforce the law either. Not good.
and freedom of speech and academic is limited on the issue..
oh South Korea… where are you going..
I often wonder why so many western media outlets blindly believe China and South Korea(pro-North activists) .
The author objectively writes about it. nice one.
Oh yeah. The witch-hunt in 10 years ago all over again.
Moon Jae-in who is the leading presidential contenders with 32% of support is said to be a leftist pro-North Korea. And he is becoming the president of South Korea.
