Song Hye Kyo is truly kind hearted :)

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 :(

How very sweet of her! I had no idea – thank you for sharing information and the background 😊

b2utydujun cococcchanel Friday, August 19, 2016

haha yes no problem! :)

TheQru Tuesday, August 16, 2016

if sm cared about something more than looks. theyd have people like song hye kyo instead of dumb dumbs like tiffany

Sophia_Sone4ever Tuesday, August 16, 2016

Y'all need stop for real -_- this news ain't bout Tiffany nor is it about SM. It's bout ANOTHER individuals who is a big celeb who did something good and this is a news site so obviously they will report this. Stop dragging Tiffany case into everything and anything.

DZico Tuesday, August 16, 2016

SM be releasing all those other people who make crimes so the spot light would be turn away from Tiffany ... I see what you doing SM .. ah I mean AKP :D

Sophia_Sone4ever DZico Tuesday, August 16, 2016

What ? 😳 This articles is not even bout crime nor is it about SM artist.

Sophia_Sone4ever DZico Tuesday, August 16, 2016

Well more like Tiffany is being released as scapegoat ( thou she is wrong ) but Mrs. President made a historical mistake in her speech.

BigBlueagain Tuesday, August 16, 2016

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?

BigBlueagain Tuesday, August 16, 2016

I'll take that as a yes. Morons.

Maruha BigBlueagain Wednesday, August 17, 2016

I don't understand what your issue with this post. Aren't they just distributing information booklets on history?

BigBlueagain Maruha Wednesday, August 17, 2016

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.

Skylar_Grey BigBlueagain Wednesday, August 17, 2016

Just stfu will you

lyricaldancer10 Tuesday, August 16, 2016

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.

BigBlueagain lyricaldancer10 Tuesday, August 16, 2016

... and that's what it is... history. And that's where it needs to stay.

gureumcloud BigBlueagain Tuesday, August 16, 2016

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.

BigBlueagain gureumcloud Tuesday, August 16, 2016

We nuked the wrong fucking country (smh)

gureumcloud BigBlueagain Tuesday, August 16, 2016

If you don't like Korea, what're you doing on a k-pop news site?

BigBlueagain gureumcloud Tuesday, August 16, 2016

I don't like stupid people and both Korean and Japan seem to be full of them. Normally I like the music. What I can't stand are the stupid fucking fans.

lyricaldancer10 BigBlueagain Tuesday, August 16, 2016

The point is here I And you are over here___________I

gureumcloud BigBlueagain Tuesday, August 16, 2016

Every country has stupid people. Korea and Japan aren't any different.

lyricaldancer10 gureumcloud Tuesday, August 16, 2016

Dont bother. They won't get it.

BigBlueagain lyricaldancer10 Tuesday, August 16, 2016

The point is that the point is fucking stupid.

BigBlueagain gureumcloud Tuesday, August 16, 2016

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.

DZico lyricaldancer10 Tuesday, August 16, 2016

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

BigBlueagain DZico Tuesday, August 16, 2016

What you said.

gureumcloud BigBlueagain Tuesday, August 16, 2016

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.

lyricaldancer10 BigBlueagain Tuesday, August 16, 2016

Whatever you say lol

gureumcloud BigBlueagain Tuesday, August 16, 2016

Sorry meant the Boston Marathon bombings. Not the historical event LOL

BigBlueagain gureumcloud Tuesday, August 16, 2016

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".

lyricaldancer10 DZico Tuesday, August 16, 2016

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

BigBlueagain lyricaldancer10 Tuesday, August 16, 2016

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

gureumcloud BigBlueagain Tuesday, August 16, 2016

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."

lyricaldancer10 BigBlueagain Tuesday, August 16, 2016

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.

DZico lyricaldancer10 Tuesday, August 16, 2016

yeah but most history that being taught is just propagenda to promote hate against each other and prevent the younger generation to communicate and form peaceful world together , right now history is just used as agenda to keep the hate alive ,

BigBlueagain DZico Tuesday, August 16, 2016

You remember the shitstorm that BoA went through for daring to date a Japanese? It was bullshit.

lyricaldancer10 BigBlueagain Wednesday, August 17, 2016

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.

lyricaldancer10 DZico Wednesday, August 17, 2016

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

BigBlueagain lyricaldancer10 Wednesday, August 17, 2016

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.

emilykelly Tuesday, August 16, 2016

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.

Maggie emilykelly Tuesday, August 16, 2016

I don't watch IC, but I've seen the clip. Man, all of the MCs are breaking down sobbing hard.
