South Koreans traveled a lot more in 2016 compared to years past.  

It was estimated that South Koreans' oversea travel increased by about 14% or about 2,200,000 passengers in 2016 compared to 2015, according to the Korean Tourism Organization. So which travel destinations were the most popular among the Korean travelers? Interpark Tour analyzed the data of international travel reservations made between January to December 11 in 2016 to see the travel trends of Koreans.  

There were a total of 1,205 cities tracked by Interpark and out of that total, the top 10 cities make up 43.8% of the total. Most of the cities in the top 10 are within a 4-hour travel distance from South Korea. European cities such as London, Paris, and Rome that used to be in the top 10 were booted from the top 10 in 2016 as travel to Europe decreased.

There's too many koreans in the Philippines and some of them are involved in illegal stuff. The government should be more strict with this.

they hate Japan but they mostly go to Japan for vacation ROFL

I with people of Korea would separate history from contemporary people of Japan who did nothing wrong to Korea and Koreans. There is a great example of that: polls of Russia show that people there are fine with Germans despite the numerous invasions by them with history of racism and genocide towards Russians that resulted in more than 20 millions deaths (mostly civilians).

drtim Max_South Saturday, March 25, 2017

i wouldnt called that "incident" genocide, that was a war, a WORLD WAR. Genocide is like German did to Jew, or "American" to native american, China to their own during Mao (just like Russia during Stalin), or Japan to SEA (south east asian),China and Korea during ww2

You're dumb... The young Koreans don't hate Japan at all. They love anime and Japanese culture, they like the Japanese people. They just don't like Japanese politics.

Max_South drtim Saturday, March 25, 2017

It was literal genocide; Hitler planned to get rid of at least 30 million Russians before the invasion, and they killed off 18 million of civilians successfully, including up to 1 million in the city of Leningrad that was besieged for 900 days (people had to eat grass, leave on 125 grammes of bread per day, and it was not even a real bread if you look at what it was made of). Germans have calculated how many Russians they need to stay alive to be slaves for Germans in those captured territories, and 30 million people were above what they needed right away. And, by the way, neither Stalin and Mao have not carried out genocide: they have never had a goal to kill off their people. The losses were due to the harsh, and at times criminally negligent, opportunistic and unprofessional policies in general. For example, two bad crops in row in 1932-1933 were exacerbated by careerist management of various regions within the USSR that forged report on the amount of crops collected to advance their careers, and then tried to gather much more crops than was reasonable to meet their declared quota. As soon as Stalin got correct reports those criminal officials were arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent. Stalin needed as many people as possible to carry out his industrialization project thanks to which the USSR was able to withstand the might of the Hitler's united Europe and overpower it, inflicting 2/3 of all damages ever done to the Nazis.

yet SK hate Japanese and call idols who promote there traitors LOL

tyger11 t_aeri Friday, March 24, 2017

Only some do. There are politicians and companies with a vested interest in keeping the hate going. Japan has officially apologized more than once, and paid compensation, but it went to the SK government for distribution - and they didn't distribute the funds. You'll never hear that on SK news, of course. There are, obviously, shadowy people in Japan who profit off keeping the hate going on that side, too. It's disgusting, but a lot of people in both countries don't fall for it. Korean restaurants and dramas are very popular in Japan.

i think the younger generation are more open-minded (that could come across wrong, i just didn't know how to word it). but a lot say that as long as the old issues aren't brought up, their won't be any conflict between citizens. the feelings are deep down, i think

tyger11 caitlinnolly Friday, March 24, 2017

Unfortunately, there are people in both countries who constantly bring it up, and they span generations, so this isn't going away until some enterprising investigative journalists manage to expose the people who are doing this for their own reasons. (on both sides). In general, though, sure, the younger generations are going to be less invested in this, I agree. But the idea that all (or even most) Koreans hate Japanese, or the other way around, is simply false and easily proven so.

k_kid t_aeri Friday, March 24, 2017

Why are you generalizing? Not all Koreans hate the Japanese. You also say it like the hatred is one sided, there are Japanese people who hate Koreans as well you know.

caitlinnolly tyger11 Friday, March 24, 2017

i never said all koreans hate japanese? what on earth

growlin t_aeri Saturday, March 25, 2017

It's a joke among Koreans. Don't take it up the ass too hard.

AReMY tyger11 Sunday, March 26, 2017

Some Korean people (mostly older) are still unsatisfied because Japan bans books talking about this event, and PM Abe publicly questioned the international consensus that JAPAN INVADED CHINA/KOREA .(seriously, if you have to question the definition of this invasion, what kind of sincerity can Koreans expect from you). No number of apologies will ever satisfy if the Japanese government deters its own citizens from learning more about its history.
