If Korea wants an apology they should just google it because Japan has said sorry. If they want money they need to ask their own government because Japan paid in 2015, deal signed by both parties.

It looks like they completely must boycott such high tech materials first. Most professional news journalists are always using Canon, Nikon, Olympus,,, etc made in Japan. They would have to use smartphone camera for their news instead of Japanese camera.

They seem to be enjoying themselves! I wonder if they have "Sakura" in Korea, people who get paid to demonstrate?

Enough of this stupidity, SK.

What a joke and utterly predictable.

Are these people for real? Seriously?

Am I right or am I right all the time?

These same people that accuse all Japanese of whitewashing and ignoring history, are doing the same darned thing here! Have these ignoramuses even heard of the 2015 agreement between South Korea and Japan, at the time which the SK president crowed that this was the be all end all of such matters?

How does one go from trade dispute over a white list, to apologizing and compensation for comfort women? Good lord these people are dumb and ignorant, it makes me want to bash my head against the wall over and over.

That large sign in the middle of the photo looks like a photoshop edit. It appears to be so much sharper and in higher resolution than anything else in the photo. Nothing else is that sharp. It is not the result of a narrow depth of field.

GyGene, enough of this stupidity in SK and Japan. Japan's ultrarightists are equally stupid.

Please boycott Japanese products, Korea. It's just more for us to buy and use here.

Move on, get a life, folks...! You're only showing your inferiority complex...

Do you think that people in Japan give any crap of these things and behaviors?

A typical peaceful street demonstration in S. Korea. You may try hard to pick anything to blame, but actually there is no problem.

Ahhhhhhhh you've got to love the smell of pure unadulterated democratic demonstrations early in the morning. For those in denial,yes, this is what democracy looks like.

Another day, another big anti-Japan rally in Seoul. Grow up, South Korea. Stop brainwashing your youth to despise Japan. Boycott Japanese goods all you like. It saves theJapanese government the trouble of banning ALL Japanese goods from being exported to SK, which is what will happen later this year.

-1 ( +4 / -5 )

As far as I see, Japanese do not to boycott S Korean products very emotionally if product is good. Never seen Japanese protesters boycotting good products here. Boycott seems more or less stupid, as good is good.

-2 ( +2 / -4 )

Yeah and I am sure that assaulting whistle-blowers is part of SK style democracy.

Korea's danger of struggling in "anti-day" has emerged. Lee U-Yung, a research member of the Korea Institute of Economic Research (Naxonde), who announced at the UN headquarters in Geneva that there was no ethnic discrimination of wages on the so-called “prime issue” problem was attacked.

If South Korea really cared, they would stop exporting their products to Japan, too. So it's a win-win for Japan residents - more Japanese products for us to consume and we still get to use some really good Korean products. Thanks Koreans!

Another day, another big anti-Japan rally in Seoul. Grow up

on ordinary school days during ordinary school hours as usual.

Protesting at Japanese embassy must be compulsorily incorporated to their school curriculums

Ironic - and quite amusing - because Sony supplies all the 'Made in Japan' image sensors in Samsung phones.

A boy is holding up a sign that says in hangul: Uri-nun ki-eok handa 'we remember'...Just what does he "remember"? All the fake history he learned in school? South Korea imitates Japan of old in peddling mythology as historical fact...When Japanese politicians and pseudo-intellectuals resort to Yamato-minzoku-ism, they have been rightly criticized. But all of that is quite mild when compared to the rabid ethno-nationalism of South Koreans. (And, of course, in the north, total insanity reigns.) Japan's only reasonable option is to deal with irrationality, hypocrisy, and sheer childishness by ignoring it all with a shrug of the shoulders.

Japan is de facto a fascistic country where the government effectively can prohibit its people from buying foreign products or travelling abroad. China is the same. In these 2 countries, they do not need grass-root boycott by people, because the governments can do anything.

For example, what the Abe administration can instigate through media and books:

It seems to me S Koreans would have to boycott 2020 Tokyo Olympics for sure. If they decided it, no complain about it. More people here including more foreign sightseers would happily have more chances to be able to buy tickets at the entrances.
