Revenge of the flag biter

February 20th, 2006 . by Matt

flag biter
The Japanese flag is an acquired taste

It seems that Korean flag biter is continuing his unique brand of flag biting activism against Japan and has managed to gather support from a Korean citizens group.

On the 17th of Feburary, he took the campaign on a plane, where he made a bold statement that “Dokdo is our land” to Koreans that probably agree with him anyway. The writing in Chinese claims that pacifist Japan is a militarist country, and denounces worshipping at a certain shrine in Japan.

On the 18th the flag biter took his campaign to the coast of Korea to protest ‘Takeshima Day’.

The flag biter has scheduled other events this month, so I will keep readers updated on his activities. Next month he also plans to bite flags in Tokyo, Shimane prefecture, Mt. Fuji, and Tsushima (No, I am not joking).

The organization backing the flag biter (called Halbindang 할빈당) is also claiming that Tsushima Island, which is undisputed Japanese territory (undisputed by the Korean government) is Korean territory, along with Dokdo (Takeshima). This picture story from Empas shows a mangled Japanese flag along with a sign saying “Tsushima is our territory too!”

I cant tell if the Japanese flag has been chewed to bits or burned. Since flag burning is illegal in South Korea, we should give them the benefit of the doubt and consider it chewed to bits.

Update: Never let it be said that I dont admit it when I am wrong. I wrote that we should be giving him the benefit of the doubt that he would stick to biting the flag, and not illegally burning the flag.

First the salt


Then add the red pepper


Lastly apply fire to the Japanese flag for a delicious Korean BBQ spicy Japanese flag meal


This is right in front of the Japanese consulate on the 20th – where are the police when there is an illegal flag burning? I wonder what is next, Japanese flag hot pot?

    In the process of drawing up the Peace Treaty, the US did not agree to the Korean Government’s request that Takeshima be included among the islands named in the treaty. The letter from Additional State Secretary Mr. Dean Rusk to the Ambassador of ROK in 1951 says;
    ”This normally uninhabited rock formation was according to our information never treated as part of Korea and, since about 1905, has been under the jurisdiction of the Oki Islands Branch Office of Shiname Prefecture of Japan. The island does not appear ever before to have been claimed by Korea”
    Here is a link to the document http://www.geocities.jp/tanaka_kunitaka/takeshima/frus1951.gif

    Have you read the book? If not, how can you judge if it is bad or not?

    “일제시대는 온 민족이 역사상 전무후무하게 행복하게 살았던 시대”
    Japanese colonization harmed lot of innocent koreans. I bet he sucked lot of japanse pu%%y

    “내 기억에 90년대 초 하이텔 문자 통신 시절에 ‘모든 여자의 창녀론’으로 튀어보려던 사람이 있었는데, 그 사람이 당신인가?”
    this quote proves it. Sucked lot of P####

    “사람들을 자극하는 글을 써서 책을 팔아먹기 위해 친일파인 것처럼 하는 것”이라고 주장했다”

    need some dirty money. poor men

    “김완섭씨가 김좌진 장군을 ‘산적떼두목’이라고 공개적으로 표현했다”

    Looks like he was so pissed off that his favorite army got their ass killed by the korean freedom fighter General

    “양심불량 대한민국! 독도는 일본에 돌려줘라”

    What do you know? Your favorite quote. He should be your idol.

    I just read his blogs and it was so funny. He need to go to a mental hospital.

    It’s not worth reading the fxxxing book. why don’t you tell me about it. Anything that is pro korean, I’ll accept that as a lie because there’s no way there’s going to be anything positive about Korea. If there is one black dude who wrote a book claiming that “We should thank KuKluxKlan. Their behavior towards us actually teaches us some good lessons for being such a inferior race. They are not always bad. Our slavery era wasn’t such a badthing at all if you think carefully. We had good food and good life as a servant in the owner’s house” I wonder how would black people react to this.

    before this, there were lot of document that even japan had admitted dokdo was Korea’s. Even in the history.

    When did Japan admit that island was Korea’s? When did the Japanese navy invade the island? You need to show historical evidence to back up your claim. Here is a link to a site explaining very well the evidence supporting Japan’s claim on Takeshima. http://www.geocities.jp/tanaka_kunitaka/Takeshima/
    And, I hope you won’t dodge this important question anymore; Why is the Korean government ignoring the fishing agreement between Korea and Japan ?

    It’s really no use to talking to Josenese on this issue-
    they are so brainwashed by Anti-Japanese propaganda that their media and government constantly feed them. It must be so yummy, these Anti-Japanese lies, since NO Koreans who come here can understand that THEY are the ones believing crude paranoid lies about Japan,her past and present.

    Josenese were slaves under Japanese colonial rule? Deprived of their resources and culture? This is one of the worst lies that the North and South Josen governments tell. It is so absurd but the fact is, only the Josenese accept this weird and flawed vision of history. God save their souls.

  8. comment number 8 by: Katz

    If it belonged to Japan then it can say that Korea invaded it. If not, Why Japan is saying that Korea invaded it? Japan is the brainwashed here, they don’t have sense as if they had never suffered injustice socially. If so, they wouldn’t behave with this attitude. As I heard from someone, this is more symbolic than territorial. Let God judge then.

    Read this if you can read Korean.

    아무 일도 안하는 현정부는 ‘건달정부’
    한일관계 저해하는 반일감정 조장은 매국적 행위
    선진화와 대북문제 모두 실패한 무능력한 정부

    ▶ 참여정부 출범이후 일본과의 관계가 매끄럽지 않습니다. 최근에는 고이즈미 총리의 야스쿠니 신사 참배를 이유로 연말로 예정되었던 한일 정상회담 일정까지 취소하는 사태에 이르면서 우려도 높아지고 있는데, 어떻게 생각하십니까?

    – 지금의 상황을 한마디로 정리하자면 현 정부가 해결될 수 없는 문제를 해결할 수 있는 문제처럼 부각시켜서, 자신들이 민족주의를 대변하는 세력인 양 국민을 속이고 있는 형국입니다. 예를 들어 독도문제는 역대 정부가 해결될 수 없기 때문에 덮어둔 문제입니다. 솔직히 독도 관련 자료는 일본이 더 많이 갖고 있습니다. 일본은 1905년에 이미 독도에 대한 국제적 인정을 받았기 때문이죠. 우리나라는 현실적으로 영유하고 있는 것 뿐이구요.

    – 만일 이 문제가 국제사법재판소로 간다면 당연히 문헌과 증거를 많이 갖고 있는 일본이 이기게 됩니다. 현정부가 이 문제를 국제사법재판소로 가져가지 않는 것도 이 때문이지요. 고기 하나를 두고 개 두마리가 싸운다고 생각해 봅시다. 한마리가 먼저 고기를 물었다면 얼른 도망가서 먹을 일이지, 고기를 뺏으려는 다른 개를 보고 짖어댄다면 얼마나 어리석은 일입니까? 독도문제의 해법은 입을 다무는 것입니다. 우리야 실질적으로 독도를 영유하고 있으니까 답답할게 없거든요. 자꾸 떠들어봐야 오히려 손해날 일을 현정부가 자꾸 논쟁거리로 만드는 것은 비애국적인, 어떤 의미에서는 매국적 행위입니다.
    – 일본 우경화에 대한 이데올로기 거점을 야스쿠니 신사참배로 잡는 것 역시 잘못입니다. 일본 우경화의 핵심은 헌법구조 변경, 즉 자위대의 법적지위 문제이기 때문입니다. 일본의 헌법개정은 보통국가가 되겠다는 것으로서 자민당이 내세운 전제조건은 첫째 전쟁포기, 둘째 자위대 합법화, 셋째 국제공여, 넷째 자위대 해외 파견시 국회동의 의무화입니다. 이중 우리나라와 관련해 문제가 되는 것은 자위대의 합법화 문제인데, 이것 역시 현재 불법이지만 실질적인 자위권 행사를 용인할 것이냐, 아니면 합법적 틀 내에서 자위대 역할을 규정할 것인가 라는 선택의 문제라 할 수 있습니다. 이런 것을 단순히 일본의 헌법 개정은 반동이라는 논리에 따라 우경화 운운하는 것은 전혀 일본을 알지 못하고 하는 소리인 것입니다.

    – 무엇보다 중요한 것은 한국이 선진국으로 가기 위해서는 한일관계를 어떻게 설정하는가의 문제입니다. 그런데 독도문제나 야스쿠니 신사참배 등 해결될 수 없는 문제를 중심축에 놓는 것은 선진화를 위한 한일관계 구축이라는 본질적 문제를 망각하게 만듭니다. 이렇기 때문에 비애국적, 매국적이라는 말을 하는 겁니다. 국내는 물론 국제정치에서도 아무것도 하는 일이 없는 이 정부는 한마디로 건달정부에요. 뭐든지 다 한다고 말하지만 하는 건 아무것도 없잖아요? 아니 독립국가에서 반일운동하는 어리석은 사람들이 어디에 있습니까? 말로야 통쾌하게 할 말은 했다고 하지만 결과라고 할만한 게 없어요. 민족주의 감정에 호소해서 정권을 유지하려는 음흉한 의도라고 밖에는 해석할 수 없습니다.

    they know what they are talking about. Already knowing that koreans will make reaction to this. Try to control koreans like a puppet

  15. comment number 15 by: Ell

    If Korea so believes in the legality of their ownership of Takeshima/Dokdo, please just come to the international court.

    It’s so simple and something Korea can do NOW to shut them Japanese once and for all!!!!
    Why do you hesitate doing so by giving stupid excuses???

    Occupation of Takeshima/Dokdo by Korea in the current situation is nothing other than “Korea’s invasion of Japan”.
    Shame on Korea for having double standards.
    “It’s a sin for you to do X, but it’s okay as long as WE do X!!!”

    As a Korean, you should persuade your government to go to the international court, instead of burning flags and symbols of Japan.

  16. comment number 16 by: Ell

    Redskin84, any comment on this?
    Why are the Korean government avoiding the international court?

  17. comment number 17 by: Redskins84

    One of the judge in international court is japanese. Everybody knows Japan is a political superpower country. International court is the only way they can have chance to take the land. Japan already made the trap for Korea. Why the F… would we go into the trap? Would you like to play Korea Vs Japan baseball game when the refree is Korean? You should remember what happened to japan when they played USA when the american was the refree.

  18. comment number 18 by: Ell

    That’s the excuse I’ve been hearing for a long time, but the international court is not one judge court.
    And no matter who the judge is, if Korea has a solid proof that Takeshima belongs to Korea and can prove it to the world, Korea will win. Korean government KNOWS that they do not have enough proof if they go to court.


    Everybody knows Japan is a political superpower country.

    That’s a laugh.
    If Japan was a political superpower, Japan would have armed itself with nuclear weapon by now since China and North Korea are pointing one at them and
    Japan would already have pushed Koreans off the island, too.
    Be realistic. Japan is politically wimpy and China and Korea have been happy of that fact until recently.

  19. comment number 19 by: Redskins84

    pathetically korean govt didn’t prove much. Korean people and news reporters did. by finding much revealed map as possible. Even the one that japanese emperor admitted dokdo was korean’s. It’s just lucky for you that we don’t have anybody smart in the govt office. But soon as we have the smart govt leaders in the office, we’ll be there. If you feel that unfair let the god judge. Your country have been controlling my country for long time but not forever. WHY? Because Japan didn’t meant to be controlling Korea forever as a colony. Whatever happens happens

    Japan would already have pushed Koreans off the island, too.

    Korean military is lot stronger than the past. You know what happened in 1920 in Korean freedom force fought Japanese army in Chinese mountain. There were way more number of Japanese soldiers than Korean freedom force. But they lost the battle BAD!! Korean general named Kim Jwa Jin was the one who was leading. You cannot laugh at us all the time.

    Ooooh, goody. I do hope they’re authentic. Please usher in politicians who are willing to duke it out in the international court.
    I can’t wait.
    I’m really sick of all the bickering the Korean government makes about the Japanese textbooks and want this thing settled once and for all.
    As Japan has been to settle it in the international court, soon as Korea is ready, it can begin.

    Your country have been controlling my country for long time but not forever.

    Ahmmm…. You do realize Japan is not controlling your country at all now. What do you mean by forever?
    And don’t worry. Japan has learned the lesson. Japan just cannot understand the “Han(grudge)” that the Koreans can keep seemingly forever. Japan would just like to have nothing to do with Korea.

    Korean military is lot stronger than the past.

    Well, so there you go.
    You proved yourself that Japan is not a political superpower.

    Anyhow, I do hope you will talk to all your friends about the proofs Korea now has so they’ll support your politicians who are willing to put the facts to the international court. let’s get it settled once and for all so we can just go back to our seperate lives!!

    Here is the original version of the map http://toron.pepper.jp/jp/take/image/scapinm.gif

    You can see the title “SCAP administrative area”. The boundaries were to be utilized only for the administrative purposes of the occupation forces.

    Moreover, SCAPIN #677 states;

    6. Nothing in this directive shall be construed as an indication of Allied policy relating to the ultimate determination of the minor islands referred to in Article 8 of the Potsdam Declaration.

    Do Korean historians really don’t know these facts, or do they intentionally distort facts?

  23. comment number 23 by: terry66

    Hey, i was living in pusan and later seoul when this takashima/dokdo issue first hit the fan and i was shocked at the level of histeria whipped up by the korean media/public schools/and government!
    How can any right minded korean think that its ok to teach hate to children? I am married to a japanese woman and my korean students knew this and were disgusted at this! They kept asking how i could marry a japanese person as they “all stunk bad” and how evil japanese people were! I asked my students where they heard this and they all said from their teachers and from Tv!
    Koreans i knew who had lived outside korea were actually great! they were more open and could admit that the situation was wrong! But not one of the others could! they were all brainwashed completely with all the bullsh*t. Some of my students were so brainwashed they actually believed that korea was a beautiful clean country (yeah right) much better than Japan! and some even said better and cleaner than my own country (NZ by the way) now its one thing to be nationalistic but god damn dont teach stupidity! After living in Korea for 2 years i went to live in japan and my god it was amazing! the air is nicer the sea amazing and you know what else people actually put trash into bins instead of throwing it on the street!!,the people actually friendly!! can you believe that!!
    But after all is said and done i will go back to korea because it is an amazing country and i loved my studenst they were great somewhat misinformed but great,also i can honestly say that i never once felt threatened while in korea! shame the same couldn`t be said for other people i knew!

    now its one thing to be nationalistic but god damn dont teach stupidity

    I think nationalism may be the direct cause of stupidity, as it will interfere with rational thought.

    I should work on my delivery. That doesn’t sound funny at all. Too dry, no?

  25. comment number 25 by: Occidentalism

    […] Most Koreans are totally unaware that Korea lacks evidence in regards to Dokdo/Takeshima, and the Korean media will never expose the fraud of the Dokdo Museum, or suggest that the Korean claim to Dokdo/Takeshima is any less than ironclad. Because of this some Koreans do silly things like chop off their fingers or eat foreign flags. […]
