If one of the Korean Olympic athletes can eat it, anyone can.

If a store wants to make a gender neutral toy aisle, good for them. But trying to enforce them by law is just intrusive.
"We need to stop stigmatizing kids and putting them in a box by dictating what they should like based on outdated gender stereotypes," Low told AFP.
They’re just toys. They don’t limit your freedom unless you let them. This is how you know when people are too obsessed with woke culture.

How original... pretending to be gaijin now, been reading about the Japanese dude who said " I'm Vietnamese while robbing the combini...ey?
How original, assuming someone is Japanese because they’re defending Japan and don’t use correct grammar. Yay for profiling.

The simplest way to solve this problem once and for all would be for Japan to apologise. Apologise means "sorry" and not statements of "regret".
It doesn't matter how many times Japan apologizes as long as South Korea continues its anti-Japan practices and silences any professor who tries to argue. Thinking everything will be solved if Japan apologizes is just naive.

Professor An Byeong-Jik of Seoul National University questioned 50 former Comfort Women and he concluded that their testimony was "not credible".
He was prosecuted by South Korea.
There’s also Park Yu-Ha, who was indicted after publishing her book which had evidence that some Koreans became comfort women willingly or helped recruit other comfort women.

No country uses grudges over past wars to fuel nationalism more than the Koreas and China.

One word. "Made In Japan"(2008)
Made In Japan today isn't what it used to be like.
Tell that to the passengers of the Golden Ray, Samsung No. 1, and Sewol.

However nothing can be solved by posting this flag. It violated the rules the athletes agreed to and was disrespectful.
Well said, but I think you have the wrong article.

Good riddance. There is hope yet for police accountability in America.

“Tokyo’s apologies have been perceived as too little, too late.
Japan needs to official apologize in terms of international standards.
South Korea, North Korea, and China perceive Japan’s apologies as insufficient, but other countries that were victims, such as Taiwan, don’t seem to have grievances. Perhaps part of the problem lies within the aforementioned countries themselves.

The fact is that Japan has never admitted any wrongdoing in Korea during the WWII.
That's just blatantly false. As long as South Korea gives into its hatred and keeps blaming Japan, there's no chance of improving ties.

Unlike the conforming Japanese, Korean judges show diverse opinions and verdicts, which is not so bad in a democratic society.
Someone has either not spent enough time in South Korea or spent too much time there.
You’re comparing a few deaths to over a million deaths and rape. Further, the things that happened over 70 years ago wasn’t one off. More like hundreds of times in the past millennium. Any nation would remember that for generations.
Past grudges should never take priority over present threats, especially if said present threats involve nuclear weapons.

Immaturity, childishness, refusal to grow up, idiocy, warped perceptions of attractiveness, all of those
Incidentally all things I associate with comments on this site.

Children in Korea draw pictures of the islands with a Korean flag on it and Japan being nuked. I have no sympathy for a country that is so obsessed with two tiny rocks that it uses them as a tool to indoctrinate its children to hate.

Love driving into Seoul in the evening from the airports during December and seeing all the crosses lit up.
Prayer will help them overcome if in their own way. Plus they all wear masks, and the country is spotless. They do not litter like in Japan.
You obviously haven't been in Seoul for long. The intersection near where I used to live was always littered with cigarette butts.

Amazon's truck drivers and factory workers all suffer from horrible work conditions caused by its agressive business practices and massive volume of shipments among other things. Bezos is a scumbag, but the consumers are partially to blame for making unnecessary purchases and using express delivery.

And the end result is the impressive military might of the ROK, probably the only military power in East Asia able to defeat the PLA in one-on-one war. How did the ROK get there? They never forgot the past.
I'll take an average military over kids hating an entire country.
Only the Japanese lives are at risk due to radar feed cut off from Korea.
There are other countries besides South Korea and Japan.
Then you should never agree with what Japan's rightwing politicians are doing to Japan since you know too well on the details of the crimes of Imperial Japan, and why Japan's neighbors are eager to settle score by war.
Sounds like South Korea is the pot calling the kettle black.

This, from the country that threatened to pull out of GSOMIA, putting millions of lives at risk of nuclear war.
Korean lives aren't under threat from GSOMIA termination, only Japanese lives are
So if North Korea attacks Japan or the US, all the soldiers conscripted in South Korea will sit back and do nothing? Shame on them.

In S. Korea, people do not accept it, and even toppled the government whose leader tried to control the history textbooks.
They also arrested a professor for publishing the truth about some Koreans voluntarily becoming comfort women and other Koreans cooperating to recruit them. Seems like they're fine with altering history when it's convenient for them.

Japan has repeatedly apologized and paid for its war crimes, but South Korea has backtracked from every agreement it made and still demands money. By now I'm convinced Korea has no intention of reconciling with Japan.
