Korea has enough reason to hate Japan after suffering under a brutal occupation for many years. I remember when a friend of mine in Korea, now in his 80s, showed me a big scar on his head. As a child, he was hit over the head by a Japanese kempetai soldier for speaking Korean--his own language! Just one incident.
Something that happened almost eighty years ago is not a reason to hate someone's grandchildren or an entire country.

I sympathize with the comfort women, but I no longer support the SK government exploiting them for extorting money and hatemongering.
