Posted in: World's biggest YouTuber PewDiePie moves to Japan See in context

Lol at the people going "Who?" because they don't know him or watch Youtube.

Not sure if PewdiePie moving to Japan is a news-worthy article, but he is quite influential and famous particularly amongst the younger generation people who are into gaming. I think he has the most Youtube subscribers as well so he has a massive outreach of audience.

Unlike Logan Paul, PewdiePie is actually really respectful. He's a bit of a troll so sometimes his jokes won't be well accepted but his intentions are usually good.

Him coming to Japan is good news I think because he'll be able to showcase Japan to a wide audience, and there's a lot of interest for him to come here as gaming as huge in Japan.

Remove the comfort women statues first.

How about we learn to face our past and acknowledge what we have done?

Once we acknowledge and teach in our history books about the brutality that comfort women had to endure, then the statues will naturally go.

Posted in: Ukraine apologizes for juxtaposing photo of late emperor to Hitler in video See in context

I mean... Ukraine wasn't wrong... but probably not a smart move to say while they need support and aid from Japan.

Also... LOL at the reason Japan wanted it removed:

"It is inappropriate and extremely regrettable,"

What exactly was extremely regrettable? That the truth was out that Japan was part of the Axis and allies with the Nazis?

Posted in: Australian leader warns of resurgence in asylum seekers if opposition wins election See in context

FYI - Morrison wasn't even voted in to be Australia's prime minister.

He doesn't care about the general population of Australia, and only serves for his rich corporate friends and the racist conservative population.

When the entire east cost of Australia was on fire, he took a trip to Hawaii with his family.

When countless scientific reports condemned Australia for their lack of actions against climate change, he only pushed even harder for coal. He became infamous for holding a piece of coal in parliament telling people not be scared of it.

When women in parliament started stepping forward about allegations of bulling and sexual harassments, he did nothing.

He is also a deeply religious man that pushes Christian agenda.

Australia did not vote for him, and he needs to go. He is non-progressive and not fit for his job.

Carbonara was never bland to begin with unless you're eating one that is poorly made.

Not too sure about adding vinegar directly into carbonara...

The government should recycle these water as their drinking and bathing water if it's so safe according to them.

Posted in: COVID in UK at record levels with almost 5 million infected See in context

This is just based off my UK co-workers and friends but they still don't seem to take COVID very seriously... all of them have had covid (luckily with mild symptoms) but they have had people around them die from covid.... yet they still refuse to wear masks, refuse to avoid crowded place, still demand to go out to bars and clubs... I just don't get it...

I feel like there is a huge difference in how Western society and Asian society view covid and take precautions around it.

Posted in: Japanese government calling on citizens to drink more milk…again See in context

Honestly this is such a bizarre move by the government on so many levels as seen by the comments from netizens in the article.

Why are the voicing out for the milk industry specifically?

Why do they think people will just obey and go out and buy milk?

Just... why??? I have so many questions...

Posted in: Japan rejects South Korean protest over school textbooks' descriptions See in context

Depending on the school and the teacher, history will be taught differently.

When I was a student, my high school mentioned about comfort women and Japan's actions during the war and my teacher was actually very passionate about talking about this topic. I learnt a lot about this area because there was a whole class discussion around it.

My nephew's school did not teach much about it at all, but the young generation is so in love with Korean culture these days that some seem to find out eventually on their own.

@Coffee

I cannot roll my eyes hard enough at your comment.

Japan has repeatedly apologized and paid for its war crimes.

If Japan is truly sorry and regretful of their actions, then no amount of apologies will be enough. Germany won't hesitate to apologies for Nazi's war crimes, so why does Japan hesitate?

Instead of victimizing itself and blaming Japan for something that happened over seventy years ago

Korea isn't victimizing itself. It IS a victim. Their country was colonised. Their royal blood line murdered. Their national treasures and resources looted. Their people raped and slayed. All of this was done by the hands of Japan. Does this not make Korea a victim and Japan to be blamed????

These two are not good candidates for Korea, which is also a big deal for Japan given that Korea is a close economic partner with sensitive relationship with Japan.

It's sad to see people becoming cornered into choosing a president of the lesser evil which is evident across the world not just Korea.

@KennyG

Just because other countries have stricter border rules doesn't excuse Japan's system for taking a life.

The system is flawed and it's poor treatment of human life. Period.

A visa issue should not cost your life.

Posted in: Lee more hardline on Japan than Yoon in South Korea presidential race See in context

Unfortunately, the presidential candidates for Korea are looking quite grim. On one hand, there's Yoon who is a Korean version of Trump. On the other hand, there's Lee who seems to have shady background, connection with gangs and the Chinese government. Many Koreans are feeling discouraged to vote given that all the options are terrible.

Posted in: Japanese, S Koreans in China hold mixed views on Beijing hosting Olympics See in context

This article fails to mention the context around Korean people's anger towards the use of their culture in Chinese Olympics.

China for many years have been stealing and wrongfully claiming Korean culture as theirs. Some of most notable recent events include Chinese people claiming Kimchi as Chinese food and now Hanbok. You can see Korean celebrity Instagram being flooded with hateful comments from 50c warriors whenever they post a picture of themselves in Hanbok. It's absolutely ridiculous because these 50c warriors are spreading misinformation and flooding comments and posts claiming things as Chinese. Anyone with a single brain cell will know that Hanbok and Kimchi is Korean. Korea in ancient history may have received some influence from China just like any neighbouring Asian country but that is it, period.

So of course when China claims Korean people as a minority in their country and showcase some lady in Hanbok, it's definitely going to ruffle some feathers. China for some crazy reason, seems to absolutely hate mutual respect. They think relationship is a one way street. If China really wanted to do this diplomatically, they should've notified the Korean in advance for acknowledgement.

FYI - This is a major concern for Japan as well. China have previously claimed many Japanese cultures as theirs as well and if they succeed with stealing Korean culture, then Japan will surely be next.

Posted in: WHO staff accuse Japanese director of racist, abusive behavior See in context

These are some serious allegations that shouldn't be taken lightly.

I'm not surprised at all about the racist and abusive behavior. It's really common among Japanese workplace - especially casual racism and looking down on "poorer" nations.

I think a more serious issue is about sharing sensitive vaccine information to Japan. This sounds like nationalistic behavior with ulterior motives and should be investigated seriously.

This man needs to be put on probation immediately with serious consequences to set an example for other corrupt members of the WHO.

@Hiro

Yeah you keep telling yourself that.

Whether it's true or not, the reality is that Japan is seriously falling behind due to its lack of digitalization and strong urge to stick to conventional (but inefficient) ways. Japan in my opinion is a bit too slow due to bureaucracy and not adaptive to a fast-paced, tech era.
