Most of the cases above are not cultural difference issues but personality issues. I'm sure the wives side have a lot to say.

Koreans were among the Imperial Japan army who massacred Chinese therefore Koreans are still called Gaoli Bangzi by Chinese. (Please check Gaoli Bangzi on Wikipedia) Koreans were not victims but collaborators.

Comfort Women, Military Prostitution and Human Trafficking The need for a perspective shift in Japan and Korea Gavan Gray, Ritsumeikan University
The clash between Japan and South Korea over redress for former ‘comfort women’ is a key element preventing stronger ties between the two neighbours. The issue has also diverted attention from the larger problem of human-trafficking that plagues both countries. In recent years understanding of the issue has been broadened by Asian scholars who have moved beyond the version that was dominant in the early 1990s. In the West however, perceptions remain as they were twenty years ago, repeating as fact elements that have been brought into question or utterly disproven. This inaccurate portrayal by Western media and governments has compromised resolution of the issue in Asia and failed to acknowledge widespread use of equivalent systems of prostitution by both South Korea and the USA. The reason Japan was so specifically targeted lies in a timely convergence of feminism, Korean nationalism and latent anti-Japanese racism. Acting to exaggerate the cruelty of Japan’s system while ignoring those of other nations, these factors prevented Japan and South Korea from developing a new perspective on the issue that would allow stronger ties between the two and refocus the campaign to end exploitation of Asian women.
