The row saw Tokyo impose tough restrictions on exports crucial to South Korean tech

Again, misrepresentation of the situation according to a paid-off (no doubt by Samsung) AFP hack. It's a complete falsification.

The export process has been NORMALISED... as in, previously the high tech materials were exported on a 'fast-track' basis for select, trustworthy nations. South Korea has been removed from the list of trustworthy countries who are allowed the fast-track process. South Korea was the only Asian nation on that list. Now they are treated just the same as Taiwan, China, or any other country in the region. This in now way affects anything other than export approval tims wjich could be extended by a few weeks at the most. South Korea can still obtain ALL the materials they were imprting previously. They lack nothing.

South Korea was removed from the list because it did not answer Japan's request to provide information on where the tech materials ended up (ie: which company actually used the materials for manufacturing) as it's possible that the materials could have ended up in North Korea to assist in weapons manufacture. After 3 years of repeated requests they were removed from the fast-track list. That's all.

So far Japanese suppliers lost $250 million worth of sales to Korean buyers since July thanks to Abe san.

And Koreans are in the process of rapidly replacing Japanese suppliers, much faster than what Japanese anticipated. One year from now, Korean semiconductor industry will become Japan-free. At that point, the Japanese suppliers have lost Samsung and SK Hynix business forever, thanks to Abe san.

SK Hynix shifts away from Japanese input material with Korean product

SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korea’s SK Hynix Inc has started using a high-tech material from a Korean supplier in its chipmaking process, a company official said on Wednesday, shifting away from a Japanese product for the first time.

A SK Hynix official said it had selected an unnamed Korean company to supply high-purity hydrogen fluoride (HF), which is used in etching silicon materials and cleaning chips.

Giving credit where it's due, Samsung's A series was very, very well done. Very competitive models.

This requires a citation from a non-pro Korean source.

And Koreans are in the process of rapidly replacing Japanese suppliers, much faster than what Japanese anticipated.

.. and they can kiss goodbye the quality that they acquired (paid for) by using high quality Japanese materials faster than they anticipated. You know who also doesn't use Japanese materials? China. And look at their woeful quality that destroyed their global image for generations.

You know very well that from here on in, South Korean companies disconnecting from Japan means they will only be able to compete on further price reductions, which will either ensure that a) all their manufacturing will eventually shift to slave labour in China, or b) their quality takes a huge dive downwards as they use cheaper and cheaper materials to compensate.

You can't have your cake and eat it too.
