Which is of course, only correct. The Korean people cannot be further indulged on this point.

Im sorry but its not, Japan' s Gov has to learn that not everything is "solved" by its Checkbook diplomacy. And I mean that by not only wasting taxpayers money, also by really meaning to solve the issue --- with diplomacy, talks and a since appology.

Naw this is totally absurd. Think most of us are tired of these games of charades SK keep playing.

South Korea said this week that the 2015 agreement, struck by President Moon Jae-in's conservative predecessor, had failed to meet the victims' needs and resolve the feud.

74% of the surviving Comfort Women have accepted Japan's Prime Ministerial apology and the compensation. Where has it "failed" to meet the victim's needs? The feud has been "resolved" according to the 2015 Agreement signed by South Korea. If the Agreement "failed the victims" in any way the South Korean government is responsible for making it up to them. Not Japan which has fulfilled all it's agreement obligations.

SK needs to stop behaving like a blackmailer, always wanting more.

Remember the women. Have the normal and customary holiday, statues, etc., but leave other countries out.

The reactions from SK of Abe's rejection is as expected. According to top rated comments on naver, some includes:

"End ties with Japan for good! We don't need them!"

"Japanese will always be war criminals"

"I hope natural disasters will wipe Japan out of the world map!" "They deserve all the bad karmas for their sins"

I mean, I understand that you're too "emotional" to think straight/objective and thinking about the current/future, but Jesus Christ... Whenever I read comments like this I just shake my head in disbelief.

I'm glad I'm out of that country for good.

I am tired of the games played by the Republic of Korea and Moon. They teach their children to hate all Japanese and this includes the Okinawa peoples. I say the time for talking has ended. Talks with the southern Koreans is just a waste of time and effort. It would be better to make agreements with the Peoples Republic of China or the Russian Federation.

All that money wasted. If they’re not renegotiating, what do they want to do?

Sounds like someone who says, “I don’t want to keep arguing with you, but let me just say this,” then continues to argue.

'New President overrule former regime's decision'

it is not only South Korea but also US.

But Japanese society welcome Trump, criticize South Korea only.

Japan looks up US,and Look down on other Asian.

Despite Perpetrator side,

Japanese Nationalists and Politicians repeat :

"Japan's apology is enough anymore"

it cause anger of victim side.
