Pyo Manung, a Korean author, wrote a special contribution to the Joong Ang Ilbo, asserting that based on historical facts, Kyushu, Shimane prefecture, Tsushima, and the Liancourt Rocks are Korean territory. He insists that the Korean government should take bold action to insist that these lands are Korean territory.

There is no need for me to translate the article. It is just a lot of dubious history with an even more dubious conclusion. Unfortunately there are no comments on the article as yet, so there is no way of knowing what Koreans that read this article think of it.

    Of course it is. It starts with a “K”, doesn’t it?

    Japan should claim all of Korea as it’s garbage dumping ground…oh wait a minute, it already is. It will soon also be China’s toilet as well too. LOL.

    It won’t be long before a Korean claims that the USA and Europe also belongs to Korea. Seriously, the depth and breadth of the Korean inferiority complex is unparalleled and is fertile ground for the scientific community in the study of abnormal psychology and mental disorders. That’s their real contribution to the world.

    “It starts with a “K”, doesn’t it?”

    Not if Pyo gets his way – then it will start with a “C”.

    Coreans invented the Roman alphabet, you know, before disposing of it for the far more scientific and rational Hangul. The barbarians who inherited it never learned how to use it, you see, so now Coreans are educating all of us in the correct usage such as “Corea” and “Busan”.

    Oh, yes, LB — I forgot.

    Cyushu. . . hmmm. . . Cagoshima. . . Cyoto. . Cansas. . . Centucky (or is that Centuccy?)

    Of course, if these ultranationalists really thought it all belonged to them, it would be quite curious that they’d simultaneously hope it all sank to the bottom of the sea.

    Most Koreans I meet aren’t that bad, fortunately.

    “Corea” may be something parroted by the ultranationalists, but “Busan” is nothing more than a feature of the Revised Romanization of Korean, which is only used in the south.
