Nasty video on Youtube

February 4th, 2007 . by Matt

Here is a nasty video on Youtube. According to these Kyopo youth, Koreans were slaughtered for no reason, and its women raped by the Japanese. They also touch on Japanese textbooks that they haven’t read, and declare that they will never forgive Japanese people for their supposed crimes.

They must have learned these attitudes somewhere, either in the school, in the media, or at home.

HT to James at JapanProbe.

    Gollie…these people speak good American English, but their minds are like medieval. Are they any different from extreme Islamists who preach realization of jihadin Great Britain?

    I’ve read reports that Korean Americans have become more Americanized than other immigrants (making them the “model immigrant”), but should I doubt this?

    Except for generating more hatred, enmity and bad blood between nations and neighbours, this dangerous preoccupation with the past doesn’t help anyone in any way. And Koreans should realize that all this childish racist behaviors makes Japanese look like the moral winners in everything.

    Gosh, this is nastyyyyyy! including the white dude in the back!!!

    This kind of things makes me think twice about eating at
    Korean restaurants without Korean friends.

    PS. Something tells me those kids are from
    L.A….I am not sure though.

    Maybe they are talking about the ‘massacring (of) villagers on Dokdo’ in the sea of Japan.

    This girls are obviously uneducated and i think the soju has been removed from the view of the camera coz they are as pissed as anything and dribbling bullshit as most do when they are drunk.

    Korean parents root hatred to their kids. So they never get it over.
    I am sure the girls hate Americans too because Americans are also the target of hate in Korea.

    This video clip actually came surprise to me.
    Korean American people I hang out with never say these things. They actually favor
    Japanese people and stuff. A lot of them
    drive Japanese cars and own Japanese
    consumer products. Not to mention, many of Japanese restaurants in the states are owned and operated by Korean people.

    Like you mentioned in your post, some of them do not even speak, write, or eat Korean.

    When I was invited to a Korean church (even though I am Buddhist), an old lady came up to
    me and said “戦争が終わってお友達になれて良かったです”in fluent Japanese. That was a big surprise.

    By the way, I was invited to a neighboring tea party
    yesterday by a white old lady, and she told
    me this joke:

    “Hey, what is going to happen, if you mix a Chinese with a Mexican?

    The answer is a car thief who cannot drive!

    Did you get it?”

    ….I got it alright, but I didn’t know
    what to say. She is a nice lady though.

    Regrettably, this does not come as a huge surprise to me, even though I don’t think it represents the majority of Korean Americans. What really bothers me is they consider themselves “not racist” — at least if they realized they were racist they’d be honest.

    They do mention towards the beginning it’s their grandmothers who “sort of force” them to think this way. So I’m thinking it’s the home/family life, not school or media.

    In a way, they don’t realize the import of what they say. They mention Japan “sinking to the bottom of the ocean” as though it’s something they’d like to see, failing to realize how horrific such an event would be.

    And thor, I’d modify that to say they’re probably convinced of their innate superiority to Americans. Makes me glad American is not a race. America has its racial problems — plenty of them — but it is, at least, making something of an effort to combat racism.

    lol lol

    one kinda look like Korean but the other in the back look more vietnamnese. anyway This video is sick and these people just look confused.

    They must have learned these attitudes somewhere, either in the school, in the media, or at home

    but I dun think they learn to be anti Japanese at school anymore. check this video on movie hanbando
    http://youtube.com/watch?v=RZTdnQyrFds
    It did a small survey in the middle but almost half of Korean people say they like Japan. I think if school had anti Japanese education, more than half of them would hate Japan. I blame the media and home. Also in the video, you can see two family. One is the ansan family? and after watching the movie, parents are afraid that kids will just hate Japanese for no reason. On the other hand, during the survey, some parent pets his or her kid on the head when he was putting the [hate Japan] sticker. One side tries to protect their children from getting brainwashed by the media, but the other encourage their kids to become anti Japanese lol

    It might be true that some Koreans like Japan as this Korean
    blogger
    complains, but it seems the systematic
    anti-Japn/anti-US education IS going on at school in Korea.
    ttp://uqmgp.hp.infoseek.co.jp/
    ttp://times.hankooki.com/lpage/opinion/200603/kt2006032219503854070.htm
    ttp://www.usinkorea.org/

    As far as I know, there is absolutely no anti-Korea edcuation at school in Japan.

    BTW Ken Musashi was asked why he was selected
    as an actor in the film. He was an actor for Yakuza, and the director saw it and chose him. That bad image was just right for a typical Japanese in the film in question. The subtle but great way to paint Japanese as evil, isn’t it?

    I know there are lots of anti-Japan programs in North Korea, I can’t tell the difference from the South Korean films

    ponta,

    Time must have changed since I went to elementary school in Korea. I don’t recall being taught that Japan is evil or being taught to hate Japan.

    Maybe we never got to 20th century history because I don’t remember learning about the colonial era. Or I suppose it could be that I snoozed during history since I’ve never liked history as an academic subject.

    It seems to me that they never keep in company with the Japanese. It’s a big pity. We should narrow the gap between each other. Everybody will agree to this. But, how? That is the question and the starting-point of disagreement.

    How about sunshine policy or
    Sunflower
    policy on Japan?

  19. comment number 19 by: myCoree

    ponta

    So do you mean your Japan is adopting a ‘sun-shine policy’ toward Korea?
    I don’t like to look at the sun – especially ‘red sun’.

    I wonder why Japan has always been ‘Star-flower’ toward USA flag since WWII.
    That is much more interesting subject than Korea-China relation is.
    If USA is a dog, Japan is its tail. Until now the dog wags its tail. But, the tail is anticipating the time when it can wag the dog. Hey, Japanese. Do you agree with me?

    Happy Day.

    myCoree,

    I think Japan gave much sunshine on Korea. She spent lots of money as compensation and it worked well for Korean economy.
    Nowadays Korean people can come to Japan without visas. Many Korean students are learning in Japanese schools.

    When “Han-ryu” (Korean wave) was booming, many Japanese women fell in love with “Yon-sama” (Bae Yong-Joon) and many of them went to Seoul to see the birthplace of the drama “Fuyu-sona” (Winter sonate), but they were suddenly given cold water by demonstrators in Korea against Japan and some of them were biting or burning Japanese flag…

    Thanks

    So do you mean your Japan is adopting a ‘sun-shine policy’ toward Korea?

    What is “so” ?This ” so ” probably functions logically if North Korea is adopting sunshine policy. But North Korea is not. So I don’t understand what logic you have here.
    My logic is that South Kore adopted sunshine policy even toward the mad regime, North Korea, why not toward Japan, rational nation?
    Japan hasn’t even acted like the wind in the tale.
    Why are you so upset about the sunshine policy over Japan?

    South Korea won’t adopt it if the post by Foreign dsipatches is correct.

    If USA is a dog, Japan is its tail. Until now the dog wags its tail. But, the tail is anticipating the time when it can wag the dog. Hey, Japanese. Do you agree with me?

    I am sorry , I don’t understand your metaphor
    Do you mean why the US and Japan are ally?
    Do you want Japan to act toward the US as Korea does to the US, that is, childishly ?
    Are you just expressing the disgust toward Japan and the US just like leftist Koreans?
    …..? I am sorry I don’t understand. Please be specific.

    Huh?
    Which one?
    Could you kindly explain his mataphor and my understanding of it?

  24. comment number 24 by: Ocebey

    Ponta
    That’s pretty easy. The metaphor gives 2 roles which are the dog and the tail to USA and Japan.
    There is no way the tail can wag the Dog. That pretty much explain the metaphor. The so called alliance is a one way street. Not that it’s different with the other allies of the US.
    Still recently it seems Japanese perception and actions have changed a little with the declarations of Taro Aso and Fumio Kyuma. I believe Japanese are pragmatic enough to increase the things they’re getting out of their alliance in the future.

    The dog and the tail are easy to understand. But is the US-Japan relation like that?
    Is that your perception?

  26. comment number 26 by: wiesunja

    if you have some evidence to refute the above, please let us know

    Hi, I am Korean. I do not know what the word “evidence” or “proof” means. Is this something that is necessary to claim that Dokdo is Korean territory? We Koreans just grow up thinking that because we learned that Koreans are the master nationality and superior people on the planet, whatever we say is the absolute truth. On the other hand, foreign people are all inferior to Koreans so their opinions do not matter because they are all lies anyways. Koreans never lie, just because we are superior. Thus, if we say Dokdo is Korean territory, then it has to be true. However, Japan is always wrong so whatever they say is a lie and we Koreans do not need to listen to them. After all, having more than one opinion is such a foreign concept to us Koreans. We cannot understand how that is possible. There is only one correct view and that is the Korean one. This is what the Korean way of thinking is.
