Most Western countries don't teach classes in Pacific Rim history in school. Some of us who have interests in those cultures (yes, there are western K-Pop and manhwa fans! ^_^) might pick up some of the broad strokes, but certainly little-to-none of the nastier details that most certainly get delved into for every educated person in East Asia. Your typical westerner without hobbies that drew them to learn more about countries in your region might never have heard anything about any wars their own countries weren't directly involved in at all!

...And this is fairly normal of people anywhere; history from the opposite sides of the world isn't well-known.
