    Some of those “definitions” are very funny.

    Korean Finger Swab

    Korean fantasy

    Korean tiny dick

    Korea’s Cup

    I am not sure if they are true, but they sound at least based in fact.

    a famous 60-minute dog meat steak eating contest which is held in Seoul on New Year’s Day

    “Korea is a leading nation in terms of food culture. A Korean national should take great pride in our dog-eating culture” is the slogan of the Korea’s Cup.

    Coreans are very proud of eating dogs, so I can guess this is true?

    I wonder how many man-hours ROK has lost in productivity due to its citizens obsessing over the rocks?

    Not much, since most of them are “worthless” labor-wise.

    I have to agree with you there Tigg. Coreans are not the most productive lot. Mostly people in offices sit around wasting time, or trying to get something done in record time so they can quickly get back to doing nothing.

    In Corea there is never enough time to do something right, but always enough time to do it again.

    Garlicbreath,
    Then how on earth did Korea come to where she is now?

    Naturally you take the most meaningless stastic of total (nominal) GDP. What about per capita GDP, which gives much clearer picture of income.
    .
    Korea is somwhere between 31-36 in the world for percapita GDP. Another good stastic is from the Human Development Index, where Corea is #26.
    .
    No matter how much Corea copies Japan, Corea will never be in the top 10 like Japan.
    .
    But to answer your question:

    Then how on earth did Korea come to where she is now?

    Because of investments from the USA and Japan. Because of preferential trade practices with the USA and the USA subsidising the Corean economy with the US Military. Because the USA allows Corea to dump 800,000 hyundies while Corea buys only 4500 US cars. Shall I go on..

    Frankly, I’m flattered that Korea is even compared. She has less than half Japan’s population, and oh yeah…the Korean war…that was only what, 50 years ago…care to guess what country benefited most from that war.

    I wonder how many Japanese are driving a Ford Focus…lol… Do go on…I’m bored…

    I sometimes wonder if you’re a Korean, Garlic. Your description of Koreans fits you perfectly.

    It’s kinda sad, really, since they’ve made a habit of it for years and years now. What I find amusing is when Koreans try to claim it originated in Korea first.

    The thing is, compared to the Japanese Koreans are just not creative enough. There is now a Japanese wave in Korea where movies and dramas are based on original Japanese source material. Even the overhyped “Old Boy” is based on a Japanese manga. The difference in the level of creativity and artistry is not really surprising since Japan has by far a more advanced and developed culture than Korea. It’s like night and day.

    Among the domestic films released this year, blockbusters like “200 Pounds Beauty,” “Highway Star”, “Black House”, “Kidnapping Granny K” and “Lovers Behind” were all based on Japanese sources. Last year and this year, as many as 21 films were produced in Korea using Japanese source material, a significant rise compared to just five from 2001 to 2005. In other words, Korea depends on Japan for its creative juice.
    .
    The biggest strength of the Japanese Wave, then, is creativity. In Japan, popular comics or novels are often made into dramas and movies, creating a kind of a synergy effect. In Korea, hit dramas like “Winter Sonata” and “Daejanggeum” rarely venture into other media. Japan also boasts a rich variety of material for its dramas and movies. Stereotypical Cinderella stories dominate Korean dramas but are almost non-existent in Japan. Instead, bizarre yet brilliantly creative stories of ordinary individuals entertain Japanese viewers.
