Controversy coming again

December 10th, 2005 . by Matt

kenkanryu

Just to let the readers of Occidentalism know, if the Korean media isnt bored with Japanese books about Korea yet, this book will be big news soon. It is called ‘Kenkanryu put into practice handbook – A manual for repelling anti Japanese abusive language’ (嫌韓流 実践ハンドブック 反日妄言撃退マニュアル). The writer is a Japanese blogger known as Doronpa. It is scheduled to be released on the 20th of December, so obviously I have not read it yet. If you can read Japanese, it might be worthwhile checking out his site.


Which side?

December 10th, 2005 . by Matt

robert kim
Robert Kim, an American citizen and traitor to the United States. He sold top secret information to the South Korean government. Koreans think he is hero.

The excellent marmot reports that Koreans are being asked which side they would fight for in their US citizenship interviews.

Some officials from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services have apparently been sent for retraining after asking Koreans applying for U.S. citizenship which side they’d take if Korea and the U.S. were to fight, reported the U.S. edition of the JoongAng Ilbo (and reprinted in Yonhap). Late last month, a Korean man in his 40s named Yun was asked during his citizenship interview which side he’d fight for if the United States and Korea ever went to war. He declined to give an answer, saying he had family in Korea. The interviewing officer then got tough, saying he had to answer or he would have no choice but to turn down Yun’s application for citizenship.

Head over to marmots to comment, as I will be commenting there as well under my pseudonym, shakuhachi.


A final word on Kenkanryu

December 6th, 2005 . by Matt

After the New York Times published their drive-by-shooting style story about Kenkanryu (and the NYT article has been ripped off by another writer with a Japanese name as well), it has become apparent to me that none of these people criticising and pontificating on the content of Kenkanryu have actually read the comic, including the author of the NYT article, hack writer Norimitsu Onishi. In the article, Onishi translates the title of the comic as ‘Hating the Korean wave’. I have been saying for a while now that the title of the book in English is ‘the hate Korea wave‘, not ‘hating the Korean wave’. If you had just looked at the cover without reading the comic, you might think that it actually meant ‘hate the Korean wave’ (I did too, before I read it), but once I read it, I understood the real meaning of the title.

Here is what it says in the comic.

現在マスコミでは「韓流」などと友好を演出しているが、水面下では韓国を嫌う日本人が急増している。マスコミが隠しているもう一つの韓流、それが・・・・・・「嫌韓流」だ!!

My translation

Nowadays the massmedia is promoting ‘the Korean wave’ and the like for friendship, but behind that Japanese people that dislike Korea are growing in numbers. There is one more ‘Korean wave’ that the massmedia is hiding, that is… ‘the hate Korea wave’!!

the hate korea wave
NYT writer Norimitsu Onishi, another Jayson Blair? Onishi wrote an article critical of a comic he has never read

As far as I am concerned, if you have not read something, then you dont have a right to review or criticise it. Where are the Journalistic Ethics? Worse, where is the common sense? A blogger posting from Australia, reading in Japanese, shouldnt have to play watchdog for the New York Times.


Real race hate

December 5th, 2005 . by Matt

Since Occidentalism has been described as a ‘race hate site’ by a certain commenter, I have decided to showcase some genuine race hate.

Forget about TV and newspaper beat ups of comic books, this is the real deal. DJ doc’s FUCK ZAPAN!

If bringing attention to things like this means that some that dont want this kind of information disseminated call Occidentalism a ‘race hate site’, then so be it. I stand against racial hate, no matter how some people try to categorize my stance.


Czechs bite back

December 3rd, 2005 . by Matt

According to this article in Naver News, some Czechs have struck back at the Dokdo graffiti by writing ‘SRAC’ on the Korean flag, which apparently means ‘coward’ or ‘wimp’. The article reveals that the information was first released on a Japanese blog, and the people on the blog speculated that the Czechs felt anti Korean feeling for spoiling their cultural wall with base political statements. The article also reports that the Dokdo graffiti made Korean netizens feel happy.

takeshima
Czechs write ‘Coward’ on the Korean flag – an unmistakable backlash. The kind of acts that make Koreans happy tend to offend non Koreans

Again, its hard to imagine the kind of mentality enjoys this kind of stuff. If my countrymen were doing the same kind of thing, I would cringe.


Dokdo antics in Prague

December 1st, 2005 . by Matt

When Koreans are not campaigning in India for Dokdo (Takeshima), they are trying to enlist the support of the people of the Czech Republic. How? By spraying their streets full of ‘Dokdo belongs to Korea’ graffiti.

dokdo

dokdo

dokdo

The comments on the site I linked seem to be positive. Comments such as –

‘다음에 기회가 된다면 꼭 가봐야겟어요’
‘I will definately go there when I get the chance’

‘와.. 이거 하신 분 들 대단하네요~’
‘Wow… the people that did this are brilliant~’

I wonder why Koreans think that this kind of thing will help convince Czechs that Dokdo belongs to Korea. If it was my street being sprayed on, I would be very annoyed. Its like the time Koreans spammed ICQ with East Sea spam, annoying many users. It is a very, very strange mentality for me, one that I cannot understand or empathise with, despite my association with Koreans.

Lennon Wall
The historical wall before being defaced by Korean tourists

In forgot to add that the other ‘graffiti’ actually symbolizes the Czech Struggle for freedom against communist oppression, and is known as the ‘John Lennon Freedom Wall‘. These Koreans have defaced this historically significant wall for a selfish political statement.
