A rocky Island in the Sea of Japan (or the East Sea as some may refer to it) mainly inhabited by birds It is focus of a bitter contest between Japan and Korea to who owns this piece of rock. The Koreans are known to get get particulary incensed when this topic comes up, and practically uses every trick under their sleeves, including their favorite ploy of rewriting history to fit their fictional view of how the World should be. However, while Japan has been negotiating rationally to bring this issue up to the International court of justice in The Hague for proper adjudication, Korea has been doing everything they can to stop this from happening because they know that THEY ARE GOING TO LOSE the case once it goes there. In essence - Korea should stop crying like an crybaby, and go to the proper place where all evidence on what the "Proper History" will come out in the open for the world to see.
We hope Ban Ki Moon has the guts and the common sense to tell Korea to Go to the Hague to settle the Dokdo-Takeshima issue once and for all under international scrutiny
A group of small islets in the East Sea. Although claimed by both Korea and Japan the Dokdo islets are currently administered by the Republic of Korea. By the way, I am neither Korean nor Japanese and am thus free from bias.
Dokdo is South Korean territory. Simple as that.
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.
Rightfully a part of Corea, contrary to what fuckfaced retards like marissa919 and dudeinwales think.
dokdo is Korean, not Japanese, tards.
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.
Some shitty rock that Koreans go ape shit about. No-one else could give a toss, though.
Korean: Dokdo Islet in East Sea of Korea belong to Korea! AZN PRIDE *cuts off his finger*
Non-Korean: Yeah, whatever man.
An argument where a calm guy makes someone go berserk when he asks for his stuff back.
"There's something I've been meaning to talk to you about, can I have my mp3-player back?"
- "THIS ISN'T YOUR MP3-PLAYER. YOU NEVER HAD A MP3-PLAYER. I WILL KILL YOUR PHEASANTS IF YOU SAY THAT AGAIN."
"Jesus, you don't have to go all Dokdo on me."
A small island far off the east coast of Korea. It was made into Japanese territory during the Japanese colonization and occupation of Korea in the 1900s.
Nowadays, there are heated discussions on whose land it is between the two countries. Because this is a dictionary, I won't give my direct opinion, but I am aware that Japan has made a ridiculous attempt at displaying their ownership over the island by making a "Taekeshima" day in their own country. Taekeshima is the Japanese word for Dokdo. Wow, it must be exciting. A day where Japanese people eat sushi while enjoying their so called "ownership" over another country's land. Also, another thing that I find untrustworthy of Japan is that they still haven't made official apologies for slaughtering people in China, Korea and other asian countries several decades ago. Splendid. Not to mention that all the other definitions of Dokdo in here are obviously made by brainwashed Japanese kids. This is perfectly credible information because it's an international truth that Japan conveniently meddled with significant Asian history in their textbooks so that they don't really look like war criminals.
Japan is so cute with their little Taekeshima day. Tee Hee Hee. But the right term is DOKDO, because it was made first.
