@cassert Why though? Modern Japan and Modern South Korea have much more in common than their dark history alone would suggest. Both countries had changed a LOT in the last half-century. A bet not many Koreans would like to be reminded that just over 50 years ago some South Koreans used to defect to North, as life was supposedly better up there. And yet here we are now, South Korea shaking off the shakles of the past and very much following Japan in becoming a free democratic society with a very strong economy and absolutely massive world-wide fanbase.
