Hehe. Yep, I saw Sankaku Thread.
When I saw most of the comment very pleasing to read, I found it is really frustrating how everyone has attitude of 'who-cares'. History should NEVER be forgotten. America did horrible things to native indian, but because it is past, you need to forget all about it? Fuck, that's the mindset that westerner has? Pity. Forgetting about history is just as bad as being obsessed on history. Being ignorant individual only helps themselves from being stone-headed person.
First of all, there as much Japanese who hates Korean too. Just go to youtube. There are like millions of Yuna Kim bashing items all uploaded by Japan an Jap-followers. Don't just blame Korea. There are many Japanese who appreciate Korea, and there are many people who knows how to greet Japanese. It's just the fact that there were just so much historical tensions and one-sided attack by Japan gave Korea horrible war-crisis for at least 100 years, which has only overcome through last 20 years.
Korea glorifies history? It's just Japanese glorifies there history WAY TOO MUCH, westerners can't just see the difference between those. Why? Historical evidences are there that many cultural influence such as strong Buddhism and construction techniques went from Korea to Japan, just like how China influenced Korea. During modern years, this became opposite; Japan inevitably gave western culture to Korea, and China is now copying Korean's past step-stones of industry. The problem is that Japan wants to make the 'entire history' to be like this modern times. There are definite historical evidence how Japan's culture was so much benefited by Korea (most of 'sensible' Japanese historians also agrees with it), yet government wants this to be ignored and distort it as 'JAPAN GAVE CULTURE TO KOREA'.
Let's see Korean education, because I AM Korean who had KOREAN education in KOREA. I never learned Japan as enemy. The problem is there weretwo big incident that Japan invaded Korea, and those two were the WORST SUFFERING that Koreans ever had in history. There was no glorification, only statements that 'Koreans should be proud of establishing own culture and science' stuffs. Those are historical facts, and children has to learn it, to know the better aspect other than bashing Japan for no reason at all. They are only 'children'. They might say Japan is an enemy now, but as they know a bit more about real life stuffs and get away from fuckin internet and shit fuck DCincide, they will change their stance.
Is that glorification, like what Japan does with history? No. I do know there are things that Korea is really bad at, such as extremely shit-fuck-retarded government rightists, nationalists, all those old people who are conservative as fuck and stuffs who always worsens relationship between Korea and Japan, but if the discussion goes on about 'history', there should be no bashing to Korea.
