Posted in: Who has the better claim to the disputed isles controlled by Japan as the Senkakus but claimed by China as the Diaoyus? See in context

"The Senkakus are Japanese, part of Okinawa Prefecture. Which happens to be home to the largest US military presence in Asia"

Wrong-FYI the biggest U.S.military base in the world outside of the USA is Camp Humphreys in Korea. Thank You.

Communist Chinese regime Mao Tse Tung is responsible for the Korean division. Now China has to put up with the nuclear armed North Korea and I hope the Chinese regime falls apart too.

So it's all South Korea's fault for being so finicky and demanding on Japan.But then everyone in the world has many faults of his/her own too.I am not interested in picking faults with anybody.Let's just move on and enjoy the "Parasite" show.

Dear Donald Trump.

I'm Korean-American living in Seoul,Korea and I can see how both nations have their own respective perspectives on the outlook of the world.If the U.S.President said "Parasite" was not good enough movie to win an award for the Oscars then that's fine with me but don't crtiticize me personally or my country Korea please as South Korea is literally bleeding itself to death at this C-virus situation shows signs of greater deterioration.Thank you for your abstinence from criticizing Korea anymore because Korea is one of those countries who needs the vaccine to help combat the C-virus from further spreading out.

Posted in: Man charged with libel for hate speech against Koreans See in context

Surprised that Japanese court charged the man Hitoshi Nishimura with a libel charge considering the fact that the hate speech against Koreans in Japan would never seem to end since there is no law that actually bans the hate speech against the Koreans in Japan but nonetheless it's quite a small milestone for a conservative Japanese society that continues to keep itself quite a distance from all foreigners living in Japan!

Nigelboy you should ask your questions by writing a letter to Korean government not direct at me please! OssanAmerica So only Korea hates Japan? Why don't Japanese demonstrators target China? Why did those people shout kill Koreans? In Europe,hate speech is wrong and is punishable by law! Why doesn't Japan have such rules regarding hate speeches? Surely if Japan likes to emulate Europe then ban ALL forms of hate speeches NOW! OK! Peace Brother!

"So even now, business with SK is insignificant." Really? Then why are the Japanese companies that have had invested money in Korea before bilateral ties got worsened still keeping their business intact?

I live in Seoul,Korea now and I have never heard of even one Japanese company, who had promised to invest in Korea, to announce that company decided not to invest any more money in Korea because if that was ever true then I would have read such articles from Korean Yonhap News Agency!!

I can understand the frustrations that Japanese people have towards Korea and it's both Korea and Japan's fault and they should stop blaming each other.I ask Koreans to try to understand the Japanese psyche that Tokyo is having rough time right now and I also entreat Japanese people to be more mindful that Koreans had to suffer the unendurable pains under Japanese rule and please don't compare S Korea to Taiwan or any other former Japanese colonies!!

I do fear however that Korea maybe focussing too much on negative things with Japan and Korea too should grow up and act more maturely.I personally blame former Korean President Lee Myung Bak for visiting Dokdo Island (Of course I & 100% Koreans think Dokdo is 100% Korean territory) but his visit there was totally UNNECESSARY!!

He could have gone there after his resignation from Presidency.Lee also blamed Emperor Akihito saying if he wants to visit Korea then he should apologize to Koreans.Again that's Mr.Lee's mistakes and I ask Japanese people to get over the difficulties caused by his insensitive behaviour!! But if Japanese people still hate Korea even after that then I say please vent your anger at Mr.Lee not ordinary citizens like me or other innocent Korean citizens!! Thanks and Have A Nice Time!! Peace!!

tinawatanabe I think you misunderstood my point which is that I merely express my view that I am optimist. Why should I hate Japan even if so many other Koreans don't like Japan? I have my own way of thinking even though I have two passports one Korea and another U.S.A.!!

Why is everyone so negative on Korea-Japan ties? I have a rather rosy view about the future of their bilateral relations moving forward!! Just because the past relations of both Asian nations was bad doesn't mean it cannot improve in the future!! :)

"Wouldn't Korean-American support for US soldiers who died in the Korean War for South Koreans be a more appropriate monument to be placed on U.S. soil?" I know you hate S Koreans so much but at least it's a good thing that not ALL Americans think like you do about Koreans.Your statement in quotes are fairly obvious.There is a Korean War Vet Memorial in Washington DC if you haven't been there yet.

"Meh. Next, I'd like to see the Vietnamese American community erect a statue beside it to commemorate the thousands of innocent Vietnamese civilians butchered by Korean soldiers during the Vietnam war." Whoever you are I just want to point out to you that Americans also killed innocent Korean and Vietnamese civilians in both Korean War and Vietnam War respectively! So stop blaming Korea at once and look at yourself and your own flaws before you seek to arguments! Get this fact straight! Korean President Kim Dae Jung offered apology to Vietnam for Korean soldiers acts.SO CASE CLOSED! Don't bring this issue up ever again!!

Posted in: Why is anti-Japanese sentiment remaining from the World War II era almost non-existent in countries like Taiwan, the Philippines and Indonesia, unlike in China and South Korea? See in context

Can we just get this over with? I'm Korean who likes to believe in optimism that despite Japan's brutal treatment of Koreans back in the early ages there still is vast potential for more co-operation between the two! I ask Koreans please give up demanding that Japan must apologize and pay compensation for the damages caused on Korea by the Japanese!

If S Korea persists in anti-Japan sentiment the eventual losers will be Koreans not Japanese.Also Korea should be more friendly to Japanese because after Korean leader visited disputed island Dokdo and demanding Japan's Emperor to apologize to Korea.

Right now Korea is number two tourist destination for Japanese travelers and if Koreans just be more friendly to Japan then more Japanese want to visit Korea.There are plenty of other countries who want Korea-Japan ties to fail notably China and Taiwan both of whom want to win over Korea's industry.S Korea needs to become more foreign friendly and Seoul should reach out more in broader terms to its neighbours especially Japan!

"The yen’s relative weakness since last year and Japan’s diplomatic friction with China and South Korea were discouraging some people from traveling abroad this year, JTB added."

What has tourism got to do with diplomacy? Some days Japan gets along well with S Korea while other days are not.All this is media hype and Japanese people have nothing to worry about when they come to Korea! Anyway for those Japanese tourists who made it all the way to Korea! Welcome and Enjoy Your Stay in Korea!
