Feelings toward Japan have slightly improved among South Koreans, apparently due to an increase in the number of South Koreans traveling to Japan or wanting to work there, according to a joint survey conducted by The Yomiuri Shimbun and Hankook Ilbo daily, although Korean media continue to publish stories on former comfort women who oppose the 2015 agreement that was supposed to settle the issue between the two countries.© Yomiuri Shimbun
