    しかし、この会場の中の人達でこれが日本のゲームのパクリだと知っているはどれぐらいいるのでしょう?(笑)

    Matt and others who read Occidentalism,

    Tonight, I was just browsing through Japundit when I saw this totally hysterical article that was recently written in an editorial in The Korean Times. I don’t know if anyone else has read the article, so I’ll include a link to The Korean Times. The author of this absolutely hilarious piece basically says that Korean women make the best golfers in the world because they use chopsticks and know how to make kimchi. Since when does using chopsticks and making kimchi improve one’s putting? Sounds pretty wacky to me. How about anyone else? Also, the author of the piece, Kim Jeong Kyoo, can’t resist the time-honored Korean tradition to bash a certain country in his article. Can you guess which country? I’ll give you a clue, in English, it begins with the letter “J” and ends in the letter “n”. Strangely enough, Mr Kim goes on to bash China in his column as well.

    I’m printing this column out and reading it out loud to the people I work with on Wednesday.

    Enjoy!!!

    Ah, I saw that one. It is actually one of many unintentionally humorous articles from the Korean press. I call them masturbatory articles. Actually, I should do a post on all the masturbatory articles, gathering them all together. If anyone else can find a masturbatory article, feel free to post a link in this thread.

    Matt,

    That is a great term, masturbatory article. If I had a dime for every masturbatory article that I have read in a South Korean newspaper for the last three-and-a-half years (that’s how long I’ve been in South Korea), I would be a very, very, very rich man indeed. I also enjoy seeing how other media outlets basically gobble up masturbatory articles from the SK press from time to time. You can tell it’s a slow day for news when Yahoo, for example, basically prints press releases from certain notorious SK chaebol (Yes, that means you—Samsung and LG) verbatim as news. “Samsung, the world’s leader in…., has announced…” or “LG, the world’s undisputed leader in…” and so on ad nausem.

    Thanks for showing us a good article.
    ” the Japanese do not surpass Koreans in the golf world possibly because they do not attach as much importance to the hands in preparing foods. They use sashimi knife in preparing raw fish, their all-time favorite, instead of directly using hands as Koreans do”
    gave me a good laugh.
    Maybe I’ve risen to the title of 笑韓(laughing Korean) accorging to two cent’s classification.

    Kim Jeong Kyoo, can’t resist the time-honored Korean tradition to bash a certain country in his article. Can you guess which country? I’ll give you a clue, in English, it begins with the letter “J” and ends in the letter “n”. Strangely enough, Mr Kim goes on to bash China in his column as well.

    Right, I have the same impression@;every time they have chances, even in the context that is irrelavant to what they are talking about, some of them seem to want bash Japan for some reaon in some way.

    I’m printing this column out and reading it out loud to the people I work with on Wednesday.

    Tell us how the students react, please I am really curious.

    Ponta,

    Thank you for your kind post. Just for the record, I would like to state that I am not an English teacher here in Seoul. Instead, I am a US Army soldier who has been stationed here in the Hub of Insecurity for the past three-and-a-half years.

    Thank you for your kind post.
    That’s why you’ve come to Japan.
    The way you talk just didn’t fit with my image of US soldiers.
    My image comes from TV programs and films like “Combat”(do you know it?)”Apocalypse Now “”Officer and gentleman” etc
    Sorry I didn’t notice.
    Well then you might visit Japan again.
    The following site is how foreigners see Japan.

    I leave the readers judgement whether it really represent Japan as it is, but it is really fun.
    Japan also looks funny, crazy, full of riddles for foreigners..
    You migh want to compare it with Korea ( when you have time)

    Hi ponta:

    You might also want to try this site. This following site is how foreigners see Korea and how Koreans display their intelligence.

    http://www.antikorea.com

    As a foreigner, i can see that Koreans seem to have the habit of always usind dirty language, profanity like (f_ck, sh_t, etc.) and always need to use racist language like “ch_nk” and “j_p” to refer to other Asians. Funny thing is that Koreans are really stupid if they think that those terms do not apply to them as well.

    Good lord. I only took a short look (its all crap), but the funniest thing I saw was –

    Samurai is weak
    Samurais all end up flushed eventually.
    They surrendered because they couldn’t beat Korea in 1895 and 1945.

    LOL!

    Ponta,
    I have a remote relative who used to be in the US army. And, guess what he’s doing now? He works as a counselor in some high school.

  18. comment number 18 by: Will Matthews

    The English are brought up to be cynical of the Americans, in particular American service men. I however was fortunate enough (and I do consider myself fortunate in this case) to have lived for a time in a shared house with an American service man, who worked in what many bigoted English would call an oxi-moron, namely “American Intelligence” during the Vietnam war, he was however in my opinion, one of the few people I would consider the ‘salt of the earth’; namely one of those people who make you proud to be human, and looking back and remembering, he was perhaps even wiser(?) than I remember at the time.

    He was, as I reflect back, one of the most compassionate people I ever met. And through his compassion, at this time I perhaps I should point out, I was bigoted and mislead and wrong angry young man with more testerone than ‘reason’. Basically, he, an all-American Nam-vet, convinced me, a hot-head, that ‘all people are equal, in every way, with no exceptions, ‘cept some don’t know as much as you do.’ for me it was quite poignant and has stayed with me always.

    He said, perhaps with first hand experience (I guess) that it is easy to hate and justify that hatred and more importantly, to enjoy that hatred, but he also said there it is greater to do the reverse and he suggested I would find it far more enjoyable to rationalise and to qualify compassion, rather than what amounts to the psychological heroin, which is unqualified hatred.

    Regards all,

    Will

    Chris must be like the one you mentioned.
    What the American service man said is profound, and when a English man says it, it somehow sounds more profound.—I might be prejudiced again(^_-)

  23. comment number 23 by: Chris

    Ponta,

    So, I’m the first US soldier that you have ever corresponded with? That is great to know that I don’t fit into the commonly-held stereotypes about US military personnel. I actually don’t feel that I don’t. For example, when I first arrived in South Korea back in February 2002, I was like a lot of other US military people in that I didn’t want to be here. I suppose I had heard way too many horror stories from other US military people who had already served in South Korea. Unlike a lot of US military people (and A LOT of Koreans, too), I actually went out and made a concerted effort to try to learn some more about Korea. Therefore, I can communicate in basic Korean and I taught myself how to write in Hanguel. (I still need my Lonely Planet phrasebook, however.) I can eat kimchi, kalbi, and samgypsal with the best of them. (I prefer to eat the turnip kimchi.) I can also drink soju. (Soju is good, but I prefer to drink hot sake.). I went to a lot of tourist sites here in Seoul by myself. I even tried to listen to South Korean music (mostly junk IMO), and I have a sizeable collection of South Korean movies on DVD (some are very good, many I’ve only watched once or twice). My opinions on South Korea started to change shortly after the all of the anti-American demonstrations that occurred after the accidental death of the two school girls and the election of President Noh in 2002. I used to give South Korea the benefit of the doubt when it came to subjects such as history and current affairs. I used to even defend the continued presence of the much-maligned tripwire known as the Second Infantry Division (2ID, as it’s known here) along the DMZ. (Now, my opinion is that if South Korea doesn’t want to be part of the US security umbrella in the Pacific, then it’s time to cut them loose.) However, I have done (and still continue to do) my own research when it comes to South Korea. I’m just like the American English teacher in the FAQ for this very blog. Once you start to do your own research, it is very easy to see that A LOT of what the South Korean government, the South Korean media outlets, and the people themselves say is just plain bunk. Unfortunately, a lot of people in the US don’t really know what is going on over here. Let’s face it, the US media are pretty horrible when it comes to showing the anti-Americanism here. (Unfortunately, many of the good people I have met in Japan during the two times I have visited there seem to be ignorant as well. Or are they just being polite and refuse to say anything?) Fortunately, I found this blog where a lot of people who post seem to be just as critical (without all of the silly name-calling). From what I have read, Matt seems share many of the same opinions I have on South Korea. Ponta, if you want to see a really good website about anti-Americanism here in South Korea, then I suggest you visit this site for more information. I highly recommend it.

    P.S. Ponta, I have been teaching myself how to speak Japanese for the past year. I’m having so much fun doing so that I wish that I could have taken Japanese instead of German when I was in college ten years ago. How about that? I guess I’m not your stereotypical US soldier after all.

    Chris,
    Would you mind giving us more details? I’m very interested to know why Koreans have become anti-american, despite the fact that they received so much help from the U.S. Do you think South Koreans are ungrateful? Or maybe it’s the government that tries to create an anti-american sentiment??

    My parents are koreans, but I really don’t know much about South Korea except for K-pop (I love South Korean music. People have a different taste..) I’d love to learn more about the country and be able to see it from an objective point of view…

  25. comment number 25 by: Chris

    Victor and others,

    Just point your browser on over to this website if you want a near-authoritative and exhaustive website all about anti-Americanism here in South Korea. At this website, you’ll find all kinds of anti-American videos and photographs. In addition, you can read on your own about the history of anti-Americanism here in South Korea over the past few years. You can read all about how the two Korean school girls were accidentally (That’s right, SOFA protestors. It was an ACCIDENT.) crushed three years ago. And that is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. As an added bonus, there is a link to the ever popular anti-American music video titled “F****** USA”. The webmaster of the site is doing a phenomenal job documenting what is going on here. All I know about him is that he is an American English teacher living here in Seoul. If you really want to see what the anti-Americanism in South Korea looks like, then you should really go on over to this site.

    After I initially discovered the site by some happy accident two years ago, I have made a personal pledge never to buy anything made by a South Korean chaebol ever again. (Yes, that means you Kia, Samsung, Hyundai, Daewoo, LG, Hynix, and the like.) So far, I have stuck to it.

    Hope you enjoy the website. I

    Thanks, Chris!
    I took a quick look at it and it seems quite nasty..I’ll go over it more carefully when I find some time.

    Thanks again!!
