Moon Jae-in declares purging of pro-Japanese parasites

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.

Moon Jae-in “Be sure to liquidate pro-Japanese”,  Ahn Hee-jung “Rhee Seungman also Korea”

야권 대선주자들은 제98주년 3·1절을 맞아 친일 청산과 임시정부 계승 등을 한목소리로 강조하며 애국행보를 벌였다.

The presidential candidates of the opposition held their patriotic rally emphasizing the liquidation of the pro-Japanese and succession of the interim government in the 98th anniversary of the March 31st.

野党大統領候補は、第98周年の3・1節を迎えて、親日清算と臨時政府継承などを一斉に強調して、愛国の歩みを行った。

더불어민주당 문재인 전 대표는 1일 “친일청산, 100년을 넘길 수 없다. 청산하지 못한 친일세력이 독재세력으로 이어지고 민주공화국을 숙주로 삼아왔다”고 친일 청산 의지를 분명히 했다.

In addition, former Democratic Party chairman Moon Jae-in said on January 1, “We can not exceed 100 years. The pro-Japanese forces that have not been liquidated have led to dictatorship and have made the Democratic Republic a host.

共に民主党ムンジェイン元代表は1日、「親日清算できないまま100年を超えるわけにはいかない。清算していない親日勢力が、独裁勢力へとつながって、民主共和国を宿主にしてきた」と親日清算の意志を明らかにした。

문 전 대표는 “나라다운 나라라면 공동체를 배반하고 억압한 세력을 벌해야 한다”고도 강조했다.

Moon emphasized, “If the country is a country, we should punish the repressive forces that betray the community.”

ムン元代表は、「国らしい国ならば、共同体を裏切って抑圧した勢力を罰する必要があります」とも強調した。

He obviously did not get the friendly advice from the US.

Wendy Sherman, US undersecretary of state for political affairs, told a conference on Friday that “Of course . . . it is not hard for a political leader anywhere to earn cheap applause by vilifying a former enemy,” she added, after pointing to various disagreements that relate to Japan’s colonial past. “But such provocations produce paralysis, not progress.

Lee Jae-myung, another presidential candidate, says

“We are facing a diplomatic and security crisis because of incompetent and irresponsible pro-Japanese, dictatorial, and corrupt forces, and the vices of inequality and unfairness are thwarting opportunities for all South Koreans,” Lee declared.

As if, all of the troubles South Korea face today is pro-Japanese forces’ fault…

 

I’m 100% sure South Korea will end up calling (labeling) each other “pro-Japanese traitor!” and “pro-North commies!” and mess their country up. Idiots! This is just a politically motivated witch-hunt for gaining popularity. It’s a political poison that destroys not only destroys a target but everyone in the country.

And crazy thing is that, about 99% of the comments of the article are in favor of Moon and purging of pro-Japanese. But they even don’t know what “liquidation pro-Japanese”really means and who and who really qualify as “pro-Japanese”. If you defend Japan’s position, you get punished??  Scary.

South Koreans are saying the impeachment of the president Park and candle demonstrations are great REVOLUTION, but it reminds me of the Chinese Communist party’s Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution which was the most disastar for China ever done.

South Korea .. GROW UP

Dividing camps and taking side is not politics. Moo Jae-in, the frontrunner in the polls, wants to inherit Roh Moo-hyun’s spirit and follow his path. He has said, We have to start a revolution if impeachment fails” and wants to end “pro-Japanese, dictatorial vices.” His language could get too rough and divide the nation. Even if he could become president, his presidency may fail. Who cannot be sure that Moon Jae-in’s supporters would clash with his opponents trying to bring him down in Gwanghwamun Square a year later? Then, Korea would have no future.

Oh! by the way, do I get to see the spree of Anti-America and Anti-Japan riots[1],[2],[3] all over again too?  🙂


Twisted but fun.

South Koreans and North Koreans have been screaming (propaganda) at each other for a long time and it seems as if South Koreans have believed their own “how great and right South Korea has been” and “how evil Japan has been” propaganda as truth.

While screaming “Japan-hate” words and calling “inferior and criminal”, you love Japanese culture and like to visit Japan most.

While accusing (falsely) Japan for not admitting history, Korea insists on their glorious 5 thousand years of Korean race and never admits Korea had been a vassal state of China empires.

You guys are twisted and weird. (also it’s fun to watch)

Please please please unite South and North. It’s about time, bro.


The reason why no Korean Nobel laureates

I feel sorry for South Korea every year when Nobel Prize is announced. I’ve watched how South Koreans passionately wanting to have Korean Nobel laureates for decades.

°úÇÐ

The reason why there is no Korean Nobel laureates in science is painfully obvious to me.

In Korean society, there is a typical tendency to have an ideal (for the Korean sentiment or culture) conclusion first and change facts accordingly or ignore facts that contrary to the conclusion. This traits probably came from Korean traditional Neo-Confucian or some similar idea that there is only one perspective is allowed and the contrary views of the narrative is strictly excluded and it is a virtue to tell a lie in order to archive good thing or hide the truth in order to protect the family or community, just like Confucius taught.

There should be only “Black”. “White” should be excluded and “Gray” shouldn’t be existed at all. There is no “What is Gray? Why?” question. Those questions are not allowed. A process does not matter. It can be purchased or copied or fabricated (such as Korean Pakuri culture).

Passion for “why and what”. It’s a quest for the unknown. Those are missing.

What South Koreans have is passion for a prize, that’s all. It just does not work. And just like the Nature puts it “(South Korea) is spending big in the hope of winning a Nobel prize, but it will need more than cash to realize its ambitions.”

The Number of Nobel Prizes for Japan and South Korea Speaks Volumes

The Nobel Prize is intended to be an award that brings together the best of the best, no matter what field they specialize in or what country they call their home. However, in some parts of the globe, the best intentions of the award have been undermined by rifts between neighbouring countries — such is the case with South Korea and Japan.

Earlier this year, a team of Japanese scientists comprised of Isamu Akasaki, Hiroshi Amano and Shuji Nakamura were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics for having invented an efficient blue LED that could be used as an energy-saving white light source. This marked the sixth year in which the Nobel Prize in Physics had been awarded to at least one Japanese recipient, with Amano, Akasaki and Nakamura the 20th, 21st and 22nd becoming Japanese Nobel laureates respectively.

South Korea, on the other hand, is yet to produce its first Nobel Prize-winning scientist, with Kim Dae-jung, the 2000 Nobel Peace Prize recipient being the only South Korean to be awarded a Nobel of any kind. The complex relationship between Japan and South Korea goes back more than 1500 years, stemming from trade and cultural exchange between Japan and mainland Asia which commonly came through the Korean peninsula — however, over the centuries, the dynamic between the two countries has changed quite dramatically.

In 1965, Japan established diplomatic relations with South Korea in the aftermath of the Korean War and the separation of the Korean territory into North and South. Japan recognized South Korea as the only legitimate government of the peninsula and signed the Treaty on Basic Relations between Japan and the Republic of Korea — a document which was explicitly referenced by Eisaku Sato, the 39th Prime Minister of Japan, in the lecture he gave following his receipt of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1974.

However, the past decade has seen several disputes shake the foundations of the relationship between South Korea and Japan. The longstanding territorial dispute over the Liancourt Rocks rose its head again in 2012 following a visit by South Korean President Lee Myung-Bak, as well as ongoing debate as to Japan’s depiction of its own history and relation to South Korea in government-approved history textbooks.

These events, amongst other ongoing issues, have fostered bad blood between the two nations. A poll carried out by the BBC World Service this year found that 79% of South Koreans surveyed stated that they view Japanese influence negatively, which makes for the biggest negative perception of Japan for any country in the world other than China. This ill-feeling has poured out into a competition between the two as to how many Nobel Prizes each country has managed to accumulate.

When the news of the 2014 Nobel Prize for Physics being awarded to Japanese recipients was announced earlier this year, some social media posts by Japanese users carried the phrase ’19-0′. The ’19’ referred to the number of Japanese scientists who had been bestowed with a Nobel Prize for their work — the ‘0’ therefore being the number of South Korean scientists to accomplish the same feat.

If South Korea wants to produce a significant number of Nobel Prize laureates, it will have to eradicate its culture of fabrication. In 2005, the world was astounded to learn that Seoul National University professor Hwang Woo-suk had published embryonic stem cell research papers based on fake results, but that is by no means the only example of fabrication. One after another, papers based on fabricated research have been published, including papers on pseudo-insulin (2008), increased liquidity of polymers in isolated structures (2010), stem cells (17 papers in 2012), and protein-based immune function (2013). To give an example from a different sphere, Apple has made public Samsung internal documents that state thatiPhone was ‘easy to copy’. Based on this example alone, it would be hard to deny that a culture of copying is fundamental to Korean society.

However, this sort of behaviour isn’t one-sided. A video of a South Korean teacher explaining why his country hasn’t had more success claiming a Nobel Prize in Literature went viral a few years ago; his argument was that the Korean language was superior to all others.

Immediately after a team of three Japanese scientists was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics, Korean Internet users posted many comments that smacked of sour grapes, such as “Korean science and technology is at least as good as Japanese” and “Aren’t the descendants of Paekche brilliant!” Korea’s spiritual culture is based on hierarchy – Koreans are only interested in an assessment of who is number one and who is number two. Korea’s inferiority complex in relation to the Nobel Prize is nothing other than a deeply rooted inferiority complex the Korean people have with relation to Japan.

The back-and-forth between South Korea and Japan regarding the Nobel Prize is symptomatic of a deeper mistrust and growing tensions that show no signs of dispersing. The Nobel Prize should honour great achievements in particular fields by remarkable individual talents – but, as we can see, its global prestige can sometimes be tainted by envy and jealousy, as is the case with South Korea towards Japan at this time.

 

As many point out, (here, here, here, here) critical thinking and freedom of scholarship and press are suppressed in South Korea especially when it comes to history and education. Koreans must get rid of Korean fantasy. And Hangul is not good for high level stuff.

Imagine kids grow up in that kind of society? dah.


Failure of South Korean “seesaw” diplomacy

p001

A picture tells a thousand words.

China threatens Korea over Thaad

Mar 02,2017

As Korea speeds along with the deployment of the U.S.-led Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (Thaad) system by sealing a land deal with Lotte Group to acquire a golf course in Seongju County, North Gyeongsang, Beijing is threatening diplomatic, economic and possibly military retaliation.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said through a press briefing Tuesday that Beijing is “firmly opposed to and strongly dissatisfied with the fact that” Seoul is working with Washington to accelerate the deployment process of a Thaad battery and “ignoring China’s interests and concerns.”

This is clearly a result of South Korea’s “seesaw” diplomacy.

Korea has been like this for a long long time. It’s called “Sadaejuui

tight-spot

The South Korean public tends to favor the diplomatic strategy of managing both bilateral relationships harmoniously. South Koreans believe that it is against their national interest to promote one relationship at the expense of the other. The last two South Korean administrations have attempted to follow this diplomatic strategy by managing the two interactions cooperatively but independently.

However, sustaining friendly relations with both powers has proven difficult. Former president Roh Moo-hyun and current president Lee Myung-bak struggled to manage these two bilateral relationships and failed in their search for an ideal balance. President Roh, recognizing China’s growing power, accommodated China and maintained some diplomatic distance from the United States. For most of Roh’s tenure, South Korea enjoyed intimate bilateral interactions with China, but it suffered severely from the resulting complications in its security cooperation with the United States.

South Korea should have chosen which side you are on and firmly stand. There is an old saying  “He who runs after two hares will catch neither“.

And now, you are treated as “traitor” from BOTH sides.

Moon calls for balanced diplomacy

Moon Jae-in, the leading presidential hopeful, said Tuesday that South Korea should seek balance between the United States and China in dealing with diplomatic challenges.

Those who don’t learn from history…

Dr. Robert J. Shapiro Addresses South Korean President Park Geun-hye

President Park,

I speak today as a friend and admirer of South Korea, an economist who has written extensively about your country’s remarkable transformation from a desperately poor agrarian economy to one of the world’s most economically advanced nations.

Korea is the single greatest economic success story of the last half century. But Korea today faces new challenges which will influence whether in the coming decade your country continues to prosper.

To begin, Madam President, press freedom, a hallmark of all true democracies, is under assault. The recent indictment of Tatsuya Kato for defamation is an example of a disturbing trend of harassment of foreign correspondents inside Korea.

The United Nations, as you know, has also launched a formal investigation into discrimination against non-Koreans in your country. Beyond the offense to human rights, such attacks on the free press can only discourage flows of foreign direct investment into Korea.

An even larger stumbling block for Korea’s continued prosperity is its unresolved relationship with Japan, the region’s largest free economy and democracy. Though World War II ended nearly 70 years ago, there remain many hard feelings.

Long ago, Japan paid some eight hundred million dollars ($800,000,000) in reparations to Korean victims of that war. Yet declassified documents indicate that under then-President Park Chung-hee those funds never made it to such victims, the so-called comfort women.

That may explain in small part why some old wounds have never healed. And those wounds are often reopened by the disturbingly hostile attitude towards Japan seen in Korean media and often encouraged by official statements.

Japan is a major source of foreign direct investment in Korea, a major market for Korean exports, a major source of Korean imports. It’s time to further extend and deepen the trade relations between Asia’s two most successful democratic economies.

I urge you, President Park, to take action on all of these fronts. Consider your landmark trade accord with Viet Nam, which has put aside wartime acts by Korean soldiers against civilians during Viet Nam’s civil war. It is time, President Park, to put progress ahead of past conflicts and extend the hand of friendship to Japan.

Finally, you begin to realize … but you (the US and western countries) do not know enough about Korea and China yet.

But you are right. Now, South Korea is paralyzed and a mess (politically, economically, public unsafe, foreign diplomacy) . And I feel very very sorry for your effort did not really change South Korea.

It seems like South Korea keeps digging its own grave despite the advises from friendly nations (including Japan).


Don’t forget about abductees

More ‘comfort woman’ statues to be installed

gif_cartomap

HAHAHA. I can’t stop laughing. How stupid they can be?

I wanna see comfort woman statues at every corners of Korean streets and mini-statues in every houses in Korea. .. only to show the world how South Korea is a cult like country.

More ‘comfort woman’ statues to be installed in Seoul [VIDEO+PHOTOS]

Posted : 2017-03-01 16:40

More statues symbolizing former sex slaves will be set up in Seoul by August amid growing tensions between Korea and Japan over the issue of comfort women mobilized for Japanese troops before and during World War II.

The move comes after the Ministry of Foreign Affairs requested a district office in Busan last month to relocate the statue in front of the Japanese Consulate there, after it became a source of friction with Tokyo.

In January, the Japanese government recalled its ambassador to Korea in protest of Seoul’s “failure to remove the statue.”

But more statues are set to be installed. Seoul’s district offices of Dobong, Gangseo and Geumcheon are set to have them set up by Liberation Day on Aug. 15, marking Korea’s 1945 liberation from Japanese occupation.

The statues are being set up to protest a deal reached between the two countries in December 2015, in which the Japanese government provided 1 billion yen to help the victims but did not acknowledge its legal responsibility for its wartime atrocity.

But, I’m worried that someday, when all those kids grow up, some might think “it’s ok to rape Japanese women” because Japanese once done this etc.

Not healthy education for kids, not at all.
