Zainichi Koreans have in a way become their own race.
The Japanese say they are Korean. Koreans, from Korea will say they are Japanese and speak Korean with a very strange accent.
Some try to blend in, become Japanese and/or at least use their Japanese name.
But, whenever I have seen a zainichi Korean meet another zainichi Korean, there is a terrific bond. A shared history that only they can understand.
Look forward to researching more about Yang Yonghi.

At least in Japan, Netflix is kicking the tar out if Amazon Prime IMO.
Amazon Prime has a long way to go with adding subtitles and getting rid of all those dang "add-ons".

Be whatever gender you want to be.
And if you put in the effort to look like that gender no one will even notice when you use the toilet and it will never be an issue (unless your standing up of course).

The headline made it seem so nice.
Shouldn't it read "Efforts to revive tourism expand to rebate bullet train rides for kids, after jumping through a few hoops"?

This is the saddest and most angering story in Japan that I have read in a long time.
I would call them animals but animals wouldn't do what they did.
And the system has failed another child. The city should also be ashamed of itself.

I'm surprised at how many Japanese people I meet that don't even know they are supposed to dislike South Korea.

I'm all for people being what they want. But, I also wonder where the line is.
This is a bit off topic, but there is a relationship. A few years ago a woman who worked for the NAACP got into trouble because she was trying to pass as African American when in fact she was caucasian.
But, why not? If she identifies as African American, why not accept her as such?
Where is the line?

Nagoya is quite infamous for cars continuing to turn right even up to over five seconds after the light has turned red.

I've heard that those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it.
What can be said for those who live in the past or don't accept blame for what happened in the past?

Not sure if it's actually true, but I once read that people in Europe can have about a 10% difference in biological ancestry, while the difference between China, Korea and Japan was something around 1%.
I told my wife, who is Zainichi Korean, what he said. She actually thought it was funny. Not because what he said was funny, but how easily it can be for people/idiots to show their true colors here.

At the very least PLEASE help the people who helped the US military!
Get them out of the country!
Too much time has already been wasted talking/planning this.

Is the quote lost in translation?
"Masturbating" sounds like he is enjoying himself while something like "jerking off" sounds more like wasting time.

Feel like he pinned a lot of hope on Macron meeting with him and/or actually doing something.
He is now approaching a critical stage health wise and given the heat I can't imagine they let him stay out there much longer.
Wherever the kids are there must be people that know of this story and know the kids. Hopefully, there will be some back channeling and he can see his kids and end this thing his way.

Like her trainer mentioned in her Netflix show, the only way for this to be successful is for her to win it. I hope she does! Such a unique and talented person!
