    Oh is this the village that came out on Infinite Challenge? Aw how sweet.. For those of you who are misunderstanding, this village has many Korean people who were forcefully brought to Japan for slave labor and were unable to go back to Korea :(

    Ok KNetz, I'd like you to get something through these mellon heads of yours. You won. What the fuck is your problem? Are you determined to make the same mistakes that were made after WW1? Do you REALLY want another war that badly?

    I have no problem with the donation. My problem is with the naziwannabecantletitgo haters who are trying to attack the Japanese for things that didn't even happen to them and haven't happened for 70 years.

    For those who don't fully know the history of Utoro,  it was a place where Korean laborers were taken in World War II. About 1300 people were let go without compensation once the war was over. Some left to go back to Korea, but others moved into Kyoto and Osaka. The history is really tragic.

    It's not like it's ancient history. The children of these people are alive and some of them are probably alive still as well. Yes, knetz need to calm down and stop overreacting, but SHK's donation is probably doing real good.

    They seem to have an overabundance per capita of it. I mean I'm from America and we breed stupid (don't believe me? Look at the two assholes running for president). And we don't hold a candle to THIS Shit.

    " History full of tragedies " that's why history should stay in history books and not hold it against each other

    Yes, we do? I'm also American. You're just not looking in the right places. Think about sites like reddit. After the Boston Massacre, the community thought they had found the culprit and solved a mystery, patting themselves on the back while engaging in mob mentality. It turned out they were completely wrong. It's weird that you think you can judge the intelligence with a metric such as "per capita" of an entire country based on what goes on in internet forums.

    The difference you're missing here is that people in these two countries seem to go psycho en mass. It's like this collective insanity. Normally reasonable and even intelligent people because stupid violent morons when it comes to the psychotic hate they call "culture".

    That will never happen. And it shouldn't be. We should teach people history, how we learned from it, and correct ignorance.

    This is not learning from it. This is using it to piss people off and start the bullshit all over again.

    That's literally happening in America thanks to all the fear mongering that's been happening. And it's not like a collective insanity, it's just easier to see the ripples in Korea because it's a considerably smaller country. The actual country itself is smaller than the state of New York. It's definitely true that South Korea is way more patriotic though so yeah, there's definitely some truth to what you say, but I don't think it warrants saying that it's an overabundance of stupidity or that we "nuked the wrong fucking country."

    I think most of the fighting is coming from people who don't know what the rising sun represents. But we will have to agree to disagree.

    BigBlueagain lyricaldancer10 Tuesday, August 16, 2016

    Why? Why do we have to agree to disagree. That's obvious. What's happening here is Korea is telling Japan what they, a sovereign nation, can and cannot do. In case they didn't notice, Korea won. I would have kept the rising sun on my pic just to piss these fuckers off if AKP didn't start banning anyone who did. This. Is. Stupid. I see people defending criminals. I see people defending cheaters. I see people saying they don't support bullying and then turn around and bully whoever they think they can whenever they can. I finally figured it out though. Korea suffers from a Napoleon complex. They're a small, little country who's gonna get up in everyone's gril just to prove they aren't wusses. It's stupid, useless and it's going to start another war in the area. And the worst thing? Korea's not the only one doing it. The big countries in the region are doing it as well. The whole thing is just so fucking stupid that the only way to react to it is to be just as stupid.

    I believe it has to do with there barely being acknowledgment from Japan about how they treated Koreans and what they did. And people not knowing what the rising sun represents.

    That can be true. But it should still be taught. And I think it is more of the older generation pushing their views on the younger generation

    That's bull. Japan has made reparations. But every time Japan does something, Korea says it's not enough. So Japan does a little more, and Korea still says it's not en enough. Hit repeat ad infinitum.

    To really understand the donation, you have to search up Utoro Village. Infinity Challenge even did an episode on this village because of its painful history with Japan.
