An island of Korean territory. Japanese government keep claiming that it belongs to Japan(They call Dokdo Takeshima). But only Koreans have been living and guarding there so far. It's so visible that Japan only claims that Dokdo belongs to them just because they have found out a lot of natural resources buried under the island. Even Japanese maps which are centuries of years old indicate that Dokdo belongs to Korea.
Dokdo is definitely Korea's territory. There's no other way round.
Dokdo is a small island located in the East Sea of Republic of Korea.
Some crazy Japanese call this island a Takeshima with the hope of stealing Dokdo from Korea.
Japanese people who have common sense are wondering why some Japanese goverment officials keep on trying to steal Dokdo from Korea.
The country that occupied Korea for 35 years. They tried to take over the country and make it into Japan. They mistreated the Koreans, stole the Korean culture including foods, traditions, customs, and many other. Japan copied many things off of Korea and China and they're not their own. Sushi was originally a Korean food if you go way back. It's really sad that Japan is known as the "sushi country" when Koreans are the ones who actually created sushi. Japan is a fucked up country, not trying to be rude, but they did so many horrible things in the world. Now, they're trying to take Dokdo, a Korean island, because it has good resources. Losers. I'm not saying Japanese people are bad, but the government? or what do you call it? The people planning these horrible things. All Asian countries around them hate Japan. Their electronics suck. The designs being so ugly. Japanese girls are scary with all the plastic surgery and they're crazy about facial stuff and making their eyes big with these stuff. They go crazy over "cute stuff" like Hello Kitty which isn't cute at all. They make my head hurt.
Oh no! Japan is eating hamburgers! :O
A country in Asia.
Below China, and beside Japan across the sea.
are the well known companies around the world and also led to the growth of the Korean economy.
The country is also known for
soap operas, dramas (rather cheesy)
ex. Winter Sonata
and pop music groups (called K-pop)
ex. Boa, SNSD
Food is quite popular between foreigners.
Things like Kimchee, Kimbap, and the Korean barbecue are famous.
A lot foods use garlic and red chili.
Korean Parents are very into education.
Education means everything,
good education would guarantee good jobs.
Attending to university is a free pass to get away from joining the army.
Many koreans study outside of the country like the US and Canada to learn English.
Also, many Koreans hate Japan from the annexation.
Many think the Japanese government denies to apologize for what Japan did during the annexation period, when the Japanese government has multiple times. (Last one was Aug,15,2010 )
There is also collisions between the two countries with Dokdo/Takeshima island.
(Well, i guess its normal for neighboring countries to not get along. Happens all over the world.)
All three of my Korean friends: South Korea is the best country and its going to rule the world in any time.
