Japanese society was easily instigated antipathy and hostility against South Korea by Japanese government and mainstream media.
Our countrymen had sacrificed their lives in the 1950’s so Southern Koreans live with freedom and they are free people now because of that sacrifice. My first encounter with South Korean in their own homeland was in the late 1980’s when I went there to visit certain factories who were mfg products used in construction areas, diamond blades. There were bellowing factory chimneys everywhere. Seoul had air you could wear it!!! There is a mountain of lesson our old country can learn from. I wish this young and visionary PM a successful trip and hope he will bring some factories home.
