Thank You Japan for Civilizing Us Koreans!
This article describes how an anti-Korean and anti-Chinese comic book have become best sellers in Japan (i.e. each book sold over a million copies). The Korean book describes how Japan civilized Korea during the colonial period and how Korea would be nothing without Japan. The Chinese book "exposes" China as the "prostitution and cannibalism" capital of the world.
The article also details Japan's historical revisionist movement (excising passages about the Rape of Nanking from history textbooks) and Japan's alienation towards Asia in their attempt to emulate the West.
I remember a friend of mine in NYU was an RA for a Japanese exchange student. She mentioned me to him and noted that I was Korean. Apparently, his response was, "Oh, I'm sure he'll hate me because all Koreans hate the Japanese, and we don't know why."
Well, I personally don't dislike the Japanese. However, considering the Japanese mentality towards their "little brown brethren" and their denials over the atrocities they committed, they shouldn't be surprised that most other Asians aren't thrilled with them.
