Yet another Uriginal – Soy source

First of all, since the wikipedia article for Uriginal has been deleted permanently, I have to define what Uriginal is.

Uriginal is mintage of Korea ” Uri(Korean) + original “

Korean believes that it is uriginal. But it isn’t always “true”.

Soccer is uriginal.
Manga is Uriginal.
Karate is uriginal.
Kendo is uriginal.
Samurai is uriginal.
etc…

Urban Dictionary : Uriginal

For example, long before Sushi became popular world wide, Koreans used to make a fool of eating raw fish. However, once Sushi became “Cool”, they started claim Sushi originates from Korea.

그는 “스시와 사시미는 원래 중국과 한국에서 유래했기 때문에” 일본은 스시가 자기들의 음식문화라고 주장할 권리가 없다면서 “일본은 2차대전 이후에 스시를 먹기 시작했지만 한국과 중국은 수천년간 스시와 사시미를 만들어 왔다”고 주장했다.

In this article, a owner of Sushi restaurant “Ginza Sushi” in LA, Jerry Kim said

“Sushi and Sashimi came from Korea and China. Japanese started to eat Sushi after 1945, and they don’t have no rights to claim about Sushi”.

He isn’t the only Korean to say such a bullshit. I’ve had enough stupid fantasic stories about it.

I can give you numerous examples like this. If you read “Korea and Her Neighbors” you’ll notice that Koreans don’t have a history of drinking tea at all. But, today they claim sado (which is an art, and spiritual zen way of serving and drinking tea) originates from Korea. How could they so arrogant and ignorant? One can only guess. If you read books such as Korea and Her Neighbors by Isabella Lucy Bird or Histoire de L’Eglise de Corée by Claude Charles Dallet, You’ll know. They did not have any of those traditions. So they have to CREATE HISTORY and TRADITIONs today otherwise they feel.. what crazy? inferior? I don’t know. Probably it’s the deeply rooted HAN or inferior complex.

A typical Korean would answer “the evil Japs took away from us!” Heck. Those books were written way before Japan annexed Korea.

They did not have Kendo(or Kumdo), Sado, Kado, Judo, Karate, Origami, Matsuri, Sakura, or any of those things.

You don’t like the fact Kikkoman is the de-fact synonym for soy source, huh? You wanna proclaim that Korea is the true father and the originator of Soy source huh? Fu*ck. Original Soy Source came from ancient China.

Korean invented everything

Koreans are known to claim [fill in this blank] originates from Korea. And that’s pissing some off, and some laugh at Koreans.

This is the one thing, among many, I want to find out why and where this tendency came from. I’m just curious. I suspect that the uri nara manse syndrome just went too far.

Here is the latest example.

China:Korean professor under catcalls from Global Voices

On 31st, October, several Chinese portal websites released the news: the Korean professor Zheng Zaishu in Ehwa University suggested that, contrasted with the common sense, the Chinese mythology mainly originated from Korea. His theory was based on the fact that many gods mentioned in Chinese mythology Legends of Mountains and Seas could be found in Goguryeo frescos.

Korea is truly interesting. “uri nara manse syndrome“, “blood obsession“, “origin obsession”, Hwabyeong, generosity toward lies, etc etc

Korean invented Chinese characters?

I’ve just read some comment and someone was wondering where the claim “Korea invented Chinese characters” nonsense came from.

It was the last year when blogs and forums started pick up this story. Then a few news sites picked up this issue [ for example here in Japanese] as “funny” news. Unlike in South Korea, many considered it as a rumor or a joke. But Koreans are known to claim [fill in this blank] originates from Korea, so many believed Koreans actually claimed that.

So, a guy(a writer) did a through research [in Japanese] on this. Where all this started? Is it an urban legend or not?

Here is the summary.
