Everyone wants to claim they are a victim of some historic slight or other. That way people can feel superior and self righteous- even when they themselves were not victimized by anyone but in their imaginations.
So true. But hey, at least Japan doesn't repeatedly ask America for money seventy years later.

What Japan did to Korea is far worse than what Korea is doing to Japan now.
What Japan did happened more than seventy years ago, and has been compensated for multiple times.
Meanwhile, North Korea bombed an island ten years ago and fired multiple missiles over Japan, and South Koreans view Kim Jong Un, a dictator who jailed entire families and executed people in public, in a more favorable light than Abe. Not to mention almost half of South Korea would support North Korea in a war against Japan.

South Korea is still harassing Japan for its war crimes, yet they'll threaten to pull out of GSOMIA and put millions of lives at risk of nuclear war. They can't forgive Japan for what happened last century, yet they already forgot the time North Korea killed and burned a South Korean diplomat last year.
They need to get over the past and focus on the present.

South Korea is still obsessed with Japan's war crimes, yet they're ignoring the time North Korea bombed Yeonpyeong ten years ago or shot and burned a South Korean official last year, and they threatened to pull out of GSOMIA, putting millions of lives at risk of nuclear war. South Korea needs to get over Japan and get their priorities straight.

If South Korea wants money, they shouldn't have disbanded the comfort women foundation that Japan itself funded.

It reflects then President Obama's will and grand strategy. Yet Moon breaches Americans and their efforts.
Don't forget about the time Korea lied about consulting the White House before deciding to scrap GSOMIA.
