Did he "assaulted" her or raped her ? that sounds quite different...

Even though I can't stand Abe, I think the thing he should do is to actually agree to formulate an official apology, at the condition that the 1 Billion yen is returned to Japan. Then we'll have some funny reactions from South Korea I guess.

Japan should have followed Germany's lead on this
Germany neighbors in Europe have never treated Germany the way Korean treats Japan. Of course, Germany's treatment was harsh to say the least, but can you imagine France going back at it again every two years with some "oh by the way your clearly did not pronounce the exact word [I apologize and you are the greatest country in the history of countries]" ? Because that is exactly what Koreans want.
Of course, what Japan did was horrible. And should never be forgotten. But apologies have been given, lot of money have been given, and the people responsible for what happened are not even alive any more. And no, moronic japanese politicians are not an excuse for wanting more, because we have some of those in every country (even Korean, what a surprise !).

It's just the bullying culture of Japan, there is nothing we can do to change these dumb-old managers, however we can start changing the way bullying is handled earlier in elementary schools.

Pizza can actually be very healthy if homemade. However, all these Domino's, Pizza hut and such deliver the most greasy, fat pizzas you can imagine. Just learn to make some dough (very easy) and buy a nice oven, then you're set.

I have the feeling that even though it is a good thing that had to be done, Koreans will still reproach Japan with the "you did not apologize enough" or "you did not bend on your knees while apologizing" or whatever in a dozen years. It seems that it is never enough.

It is a shame that in 2016, nobody told these guys at one point that their monster looks like a giant toy, literally. There are so many incredibly talented artists/3D designers and animators in the world that it just looks weird.

Democracy would actually be a truly great system, even in Japan, if 100% of people would go to vote. Until then...

Sorry, but if your topping the pizza with nori, corn, mayonaise, and teriyaki sauce -then your doing it all wrong.
And what you are doing wrong, Wc626, is English.

"But some religious conservatives..." There you go, if you start to listen to the religious nuts (be they Catholic, Muslims or whatever), then you won't be able to do, say, or think anything in this world...

Get a mascot going
Oh, please no, not another one... Just educate people like they are grown-ups, not 3-year-old kids... And them maybe they will start thinking as adults.

"make greater efforts", " be on the alert", "be on the lookout"... Well, with that kind of proactive actions we can be sure nothing will change in the way they handle it. But it sounds cool, which is the most important for these guys at the Ministry I guess

And what do they fear actually ? what is the threat with Japan ? I personnally do not approve this new law, but Koreans are just acting paranoid as usual. They seem to only be able to assert themselves through their 60 year-old conflict with Japan.

I do not agree with you guys above, I've seen this behavior not only with trucks but mostly taxi drivers. I think they are a real plague, and have dangerously little knowledge of traffic rules. So sad for the little boy anyway, and for his family.
