They said they didn’t, but they did!

Children playing with adult toys is very dangerous.

Moon hated Japan so much. hence much more severe guideline for JSDF even than for Russia/China.

Their enemy under Moon was Japan.

S Korean battleship did lock its fire control radar on Japanese airplane intentionally, though they did not do such a thing officially many times at that time.

This engagement rule was implemented AFTER JMSDF P-1 crew falsely claimed the ROKN destroyer locked on them, when in reality they mistook the search radar on the Korean coast guard ship for a lock-on radar. JMSDF's radar identification signal library is lacking and primitive so that it tries to identify radar type by frequency, not the signal.

So after JMSDF falsely claimed the lock on, the ROKN decided to show what a REAL lock on was like after February 2019 in a revised engagement rule.

That is mere SK narrative which rejected Japan's proposal to confront both raw data on the same table.

Moon Tantrum was it? Moon has had secret mission for NK which he must hide from eyes of Japan more than from Russia/China.

The South Korean Defense Ministry has told him that it is considering whether to abandon the guideline,

If the Yoon administration is sincere about correcting Moon's doings and improving SK-JPN relations including SK's own security, this guideline needs to be removed. Japan is not South Korea's enemy (as much as some would like it to be).

South Korea made a separate set of rules for Japan, yet they did nothing when North Korea bombed Yeonpyeong eleven years ago or killed and burned a South Korean diplomat two years ago. Flat out hypocritical and two-faced.

Japan is not South Korea's enemy

It is, as long as Japan claims the Liancourt Rocks.

They should communicate in Chinese because both countries can’t speak each other’s languages.

Geeze

South Korea and Japan this tit for tat digging up dirt on each other makes it very difficult to bury the hatchet and move on to a more fruitful alignment.

Anyway both Koreas are bothering in many ways. Inside and outside of Japan. No wonder you get allergy

In my experience painting another nation's ship or aircraft with a targeting radar is considered a hostile act. It is only supposed to occur immediately before a weapon is launched and the target of that radar can legitimately interpret this as being under attack and shooting in self defense. It is a very dangerous practice.

We had lots and lots of big Soviet bombers and their IL-38 May patrol planes fly low over us and our rules were to never paint them with a targeting radar or otherwise harass them. We had an agreement with the Soviets called INCSEA for Incidents at Sea. Both sides knew the rules and by and large followed them. The Soviet Bears, Blackjacks and such knew they would be intercepted at a certain distance from the ship, one plane on each wing and a third below and aft, and if they so much as cracked the bomb bay open they would be immediately shot down. We had standing orders to never harass the intelligence ships that hung out just off the coasts of major US naval bases. We also had rules operating around their ships and aircraft. Everyone was professional and we all went home to our families. Flying close to another nation's ships is perfectly legitimate. It is how you collect signals intelligence, electronic intelligence and if you can drop sonobuoys, you can also collect acoustic data on the target ship. Getting pissy about this sort of thing is unprofessional to say the least.

Childish thinking resulting from childish behavior. Civilized nations with territorial disputes don't consider other claimants to be "enemies". They discuss, negotiate and take steps towards resolution.

However, since Syngman Rhee unilaterally claimed the Liancourt Rocks and SK proceeded to occupy it, Japan, at the US' behest, has requested SK to settle the dispute at the ICJ three times, and each time SK has refused. So refusing to resolve a territorial dispute in a civilized manner leaves SK with no choice but to justify it's own position by creating an adverserial view as an "enemy". As I said, childish.

The Liancourt Rocks dispute is the last of the matters that need to be settled, after a reinstatement of the 2015 CW Agreement, acceptance of the Aribtration Clause in the 1965 Treaty to establish SK Coirt jurisdiction over forced labor issues. Unfortunately, anti-JP sentiment has become so ingrained into SK's young generation through years of historical revisionism and educational whitewashing that they are incapable of seeing the necessity of good SK-JPN relations for the sake of South Korea's own security.
