There isn't really alternatives.

Don't lose to harassment by South Korea.

My friend in Washington D.C. said his Japanese wife stopped using her Korean-American beautician when she began verbally harassing her. With acts of private vigilantism like this becoming widespread, what chance does diplomacy have to succeed?

My friend in Washington D.C. said his Japanese wife stopped using her Korean-American beautician when she began verbally harassing her.

While those who are rabidly anti-Japan in South Korea may not necessarily be the majority. I have found Korean-Americans often make up for their being in another country outside of South Korea by magnified nationalism.

Agreed with above.

South Korean immigrants to America can be just as obnoxious as their counterparts in the motherland when it comes to anti-Japanese diatribes.

We have seen the antics already, such as banning the term "Sea of Japan" as well as placement multiple comfort women statues in various American cities. I have even read that some businesses like dry cleaners had printed material given to customers that claimed Dodko as their islands.

And this is possibly the biggest irony. While South Koreans in South Korea can differentiate between protesting against the policies of the Japanese government, their counterparts in America care very little about such distinctions and tar all Japanese with the same brush. Mark my words, when the representatives of the two countries meet in New York, guaranteed Korean Americans will be protesting with signs calling on Japan to 'apologize' for comfort women and past atrocities, and for Americans to boycott Japanese goods.

Truly ignorant.
