This has long been an issue which was never brought up in pubic discussion in either countries,South Korea and Vietnam, that the South korean troops went with sum nefarious action on the vietnamese,a ruthless killing and raping spree followed by forcing the women into serving for the soldiers as sex slaves in brothels they exclusively operated.
I don't regret, It made 5000 beautiful halfies because of Korean blood (they must feel privileged), rather than pure ugly viets. And it was war against the commies whom the Koreans have grudge against.
And I don't like the fact that Viet women come to Korea nowadays to marry Korean men thus uglying the nation.
Vietnam was just about the last time that the South Koreans were friendly towards us. It all went to hell afterwards.
This is news?
The sky is blue, fish swim in the sea, and soldiers go on killing and raping sprees.
Hmm, some part of our planet has become as miserable a place as you think it would be. Have you ever heard of a book entitled "So Far from the Bamboo Grove" was banished from some school in America, because it discribes how South Korean did horrible things when at war... Perhaps they are brainwashed to believe no sky is blue and fish fly in the sky. Anyway, it's worth knowing that there are people who think they are always victims and the others are always raiders, in my opinion.
Korean super-nationalism and a cult of victimhood seem to be empowering Koreans to be this way. If Korea had not been the whipping child throughout history (by first the Chinese, later the Japanese, and then America) they would not be able to take such an ultra nationalist viewpoint without criticism. However, because of their victimhood, they can act with impunity, claiming that any attempt to subdue them is oppression.
Koreans are not the way that some ignorants claim them to be.
Most of the Japanese posts here, I agree are primarily slanted or downright lies. But there is an observable trend of nationalism in Korea, from claims of kendo being derived from kumdo, and Japanese stealing the concept of sushi from Korea. Even between South and North Korea, nationalism and tensions run high, just watch the battles between pro-North and pro-South bloggers. In a most notable incident the manga, "Hate the Korea Wave" while a book that glosses over the hardship that Japan brought Korea during war, while embellishing the benefits, such treatment of history was never addressed directly. It was met mainly with counter books asserting the inferiority of Japanese culture and heavy handed blatant racism. Many of the Korean critics of the book, have been charged of, instead of pointing out disparities in the history, just plain opted to lash out at the Japanese in an ultra-nationalist form. Many critics have been charged of never reading the book period. To claim that there isn't a surge in Korean ultra-nationalism being at least expressed by, at least, a visible segment (minority or not), is untruthful.
