Fellow Asian countries support South Korea in its trade dispute with Japan

Fellow Asian countries support South Korea in its trade dispute with Japan


Down in Thailand,… South Korean foreign minister Kang Kyung-wha
is taking part in the ASEAN plus three foreign ministers meeting along with her Japanese
and Chinese counterparts… and Japan’s move on the trade whitelist has been making waves
there too. Our foreign affairs correspondent Lee Ji-won
is in Bangkok, and she joins us now. Ji-won, what’s the latest? Devin. At this morning’s ASEAN Plus three meeting,
we hear that a number of countries showed their support for South Korea and for free
trade in the region, regarding Japan’s unfair trade restrictions on Seoul. Firstly, in her opening remarks, Minister
Kang emphasized the need for countries to strengthen free and fair trade in the region,
amid the gloomy forecast over the global economy. She then turned everyone’s attention to Japan’s
new trade restrictions this morning. Take a listen. “I am compelled to draw your attention to
the decision made by Japan just this morning to remove my country from its list of trading
partners that receive comprehensive export preferential treatment and this in a very
unilateral, arbitrary manner. We are gravely concerned by this decision
to say the least with this coming in particular in the footsteps of an earlier decision that
restricts some key export items to Korea.” She added that countries should not be deterred
in their collective effort to expand free, fair and non-discriminatory trade in the region. However, Japan’s Foreign Minister Taro Kono…
described Kang’s complaint as “groundless”. “I don’t know what is the source of complaint
by Foreign Minister Kang. Maintaining effective export control over
sensitive goods and technology from a security perspective is Japan’s responsibility as a
member of the international community. Japan’s necessary and legitimate review of
its export control is fully compatible with free trade regime, including the WTO agreement
and the relevant rules. You all know that that’s why we have not got
any complaints from ASEAN countries.” But in fact,… that didn’t seem to be the
case. When the floor was opened for each minister
to read out their prepared speeches which were mostly unrelated to Seoul and Tokyo’s
trade disputes, Singapore’s foreign minister Vivian Balakrishnan put aside his speech and
said that he would give an honest opinion on the issue. He said that none of the ASEAN members seem
to be included in the whitelist,… and that Japan shouldn’t be taking out countries, but
rather expanding the list to build trust and dependence on each other for the region’s
co-prosperity. And soon after, Chinese foreign minister Wang
Yi backed this up,… saying that the East Asian countries are one family and that he
regrets these issues occurred. Wang Yi then said such issues need to be resolved
with trust and goodwill. Feeling isolated, Kono replied to these comments,…
saying that Japan’s three ongoing issues with South Korea are not relevant to one another,…
namely Seoul’s import ban on Japan’s fisheries exports from the polluted Fukushima region,
the 1965 diplomatic agreement and the trade restrictions. Minister Kang corrected this, saying that
South Korean Supreme court’s ruling that Japanese firms’ compensate Koreans for their forced
labor during Japan’s colonial rule,… triggered all this,… and that Seoul is simply abiding
by the court’s ruling. Ji-won, it’s unusual for two sides to confront
each other at a multilateral meeting like ASEAN. We understand that Kang and Kono are going
to be meeting again later today? Yes Devin. Minister Kang will be having a trilateral
meeting with Minister Kono along with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, right after
Kang and Pompeo have their bilateral talks. Now, Pompeo said that he will mediate between
the two countries and help them find a path forward,… when he was en route to Bangkok
a few days ago,… but with the war of words between Seoul and Tokyo getting fiercer, it
remains to be seen if the topic will even be discussed at the meeting. Now Minister Kang also has the ASEAN Regional
Forum coming up,… where we’re expecting to see North Korea’s ambassador to Thailand
Kim Je-bong as well. And all eyes are now on what comments Kang
and Kono will be making at this meeting.

    Honestly i dont know how to feel about this. It just Seems more like they just wanted that preferential treatment south korea had. They argue to fix it with trust and all that crap but the issue is precisely that south korea was untrustworthy for years. It just sounds childish or not smart.

  5. Nya Nya says:

    The decision came up due to the south Korea’s lack of import controls for years. japan has been asking to correct a number of times, yet S. Korea has been ignoring and never clarified where those missing critical items went. The missing items are easily turned to the material to make weapons. It is a right decision for japan to manage their own export based on the international regulations and responsibilities.

  6. 뉵그 says:

    Japan has been ignoring Asian countries and flattering the U.S. and Europe. Now Japan's economy and influence are on the decline in the world. And soon the vengeance of the neighboring Asian countries will begin.😂😂

  7. Hag사미 says:

    Singapore minister mentioned correct way.

  8. Hag사미 says:

    I think if Korea take the current challenges as an opportunity to make a new economic leap forward, can triumph over Japan. South Korea economy can surpass Japan's quickly.

  9. Harry Belcastro says:

    This is a clear unjust economic retaliation that over South Korea's top court's ruling.

  10. Harry Belcastro says:

    Do Bong-soon won't pardon Japan.

  11. s k says:

    Korea: Boycotts Japanese products !!

    Japan: Don't trade anymore !!

    So, what's the problem ??

  12. So What ?? says:

    ★★★Ignore is the best way against Korean liars. People in the world know it well. Goodbye Korea forever !!!

  13. Ky says:

    So called preferential list, white list, Japan saying why complaining,after all, it was preferential, and korea was the only Asian country after all.

    The countries on the white list follows:
    Ireland, Greece, Hungary, Bulgaria, Argentina, Hungary, Czech, Finland, Austria, Australia, Canada, Norway, Denmark, Finland, UK, Italy, France, Portugal, Germany, USA, New Zealand,
    Luxembourg, Belgium, etc..

    Am I missing something here ? Where are all other Asian countries ?
    Why Japan emphasized korea was the only Asian country by saying it was preferential treatment now decided to withdrawal ??

  14. Kevin Wellwrought says:

    Fake news again! No proper country has supported South Korea. South Korea cannot compete with Japan in technology and industry and they are thetefore angry.

  15. Yon S Oh says:

    Japan's plan will backfire when South Korean companies adapt and become competitors instead of customers of Japanese products. In the long run, Abe's government is doing a huge favour for the South Korean economy.

  16. TAK YAM says:

    It is suspected that S.Korea has tightly exported weapons materials and dangerous goods defined by international law to N.Korea, Vietnam and the UAE.
    So S. Korea submits the evidence and the story was supported to over.

    However,
    S.Korea doesn’t still provide any evidence.

    So the Japanese government is to strengthen export control.

    It's just a such “simple story”;)

  17. B I says:

    Japan found out that Korea is smuggling the products to N Korea which
    can be used to create nuclear weapon and other weapons . Korea admitted
    the fact that many Korean companies exported items to N Korea. and its
    just tip of ice berg. You know President Moon is from N Korea
    and during Vietnam war, Korean troops raped a lot of Vietnamese women
    and enslave them as comfort women but Korean do not want to talk about
    and blaming japan for forever , hiding their dirty history

  18. wheyoung Lim says:

    The world must have know that Japan' leaders are all crazy people . Japan is not Democracy. perhaps close to monopoly society. not normal.

  19. So What ?? says:

    Because of South Korean crazy protest about comfort women, which is based on a complete fiction that the past Japanese soldiers had abducted ugly Korean girls, now, all Japanese people terribly hate and hate cunning Korean liars, and they no longer trust their insane and sneaky neighbors, Koreans. As for me, I really hope that North and South Koreans fight and slaughter each others, and they completely dissapear from this world. ★★★Koreans are demons in Asia.

  22. Kenny Klarman says:

    Korean people are complaining by burning the national flag, tearing up a plush toy, trampling down the Japanese products, and so on.
    The cultural level of the Korean people is low so much!!

  23. KEN KEN says:

    People who watch this news must know this truth.
    ARIRANG NEWS is from Korea and reporter Lee Ji-won is Korean.
    This is how Korean people are brain-washed.

  24. Hee Hah says:

    I think global recession is here now, so none of this matters anymore

  25. 이지연 says:

    Anyway, this opportunity was revealed to the ASEAN members . what is white list. white list= white people country.

    Singapore and Taiwan are old friends. are not in list because they are asean. Australia, Hungary and Greece were not so much preferred. on list because they are white people country.
    Trade preference measures based on race, not trade volume, political stance, national credit rating, and export volume.

    Japan is a white European country.

    Who invited Japan to the ASEAN meeting. japan is not Asian country. they don;t want to be asean.

  26. Afnan Acchan says:

    I'm from Malaysia. Our prime minister is very pro Japan. Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Philippines all very pro Japan. Japan have huge infrastructure project and provide aid to all these countries. Japanese car, anime, machinery, food, retail store (uniqlo, 7/11) are everywhere. Korea only have kpop, kdrama, tv. Even their smartphone is losing to cheaper alternative from China. If anyone can beat Japan that will be China.

  27. playnite says:

    This is just not true.

  28. R B says:

    S Korea has been smuggling chemical materials that are used for weapons and military applications to N KOREA. Despites the warnings S Korea did not reveal final destinations of those chemicals imported from Japan. This is NOT BANNING. S korea lost a privilege..they are just to be treated like other Asian countries. I don't think their citizens are informed with correct facts and news……..

    Lady Kang is super well spoken…

  34. Aya Hojo says:

    I'm Japanese living overseas and trying to get pure facts without bias (not Japanese or Korean media). Does anyone have a good suggestion?

    I personally think Japanese government is stupid for not sincerely apologizing and teaching the history of Japan-Korea relations through education. I know some older people in Japan saying that the history about comfort women is a lie. It makes me really angry! Such a ignorance can be avoided by properly teaching the public! It's also not just about paying money either! As this historical issue with the comfort women seems to be the No.1 concern between the two nations, I don't understand why Japan doesn't take care of this. It's a major political weakness.

    That being said, I am very saddened and scared that a lot of Koreans have very strong hatred towards the Japanese. Japan or should I say, the Japanese government has mistreated the victims and the history for sure. But I think the level of hatred is inappropriate for something that happened decades ago. Most of the war criminals have passed. I feel the Korean government is diverting its citizens' attention from what the government is actually doing behind their back. Just like…the Trump administration with the "wall". Diverting their everyday anger from poor living quality onto a certain population.

    The diversion tactic can be said the same for the Japanese government. I hope people will realize that fighting and division between countries, especially for relatively smaller countries like Japan and Korea (compared to China, Russia, US) would not benefit each other in the long run. Smaller countries must be united against those powerhouses to be significant in international relationships.

    Edit: some of the comments below have made me realize again how angry and divided people are… I just don't want another war to start…

    Thanks for the people who have supported my views 🙂

  35. Jack Sableng says:

    No Country in ASEAN is included in the preferential list.
    Singapore suggest that Japan should include more rather than remove.

  36. taro kame says:

    Korean minister uses "trade restriction". Wrong!! This makes Japan do something bad. Korea gotta be more careful on a word choices. Japan does not restrict anything in trade on Korea. Just Japan changed it to REGULAR PROCEDURE. If you watch this you will understand. so many medias mentioned wrong info. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGomBXxBP3M

  37. Shuhei T. says:

    Singapore: Let me also in your White List!! It's not fair!!! I didn't know you've been treating Korea better than all of us!!!!!
    China: Guys guys let's just work it out together, ok?

    Korea: Everybody supports us!!!!!! YOU SEE THIS JAPAN????? We Won!!!

    Japan: ….. uh… ok.

  38. Cel Mare Miyamoto says:

    I'm a Korean victim. I want money and apology.

  39. Koyok Cabe says:

    Japan should confess its atrocities and brutalities that caused so much suffering in its Asian imperialism era…

  40. MADELEY says:

    Global think tanks and publications are saying Abe administration's unilateral trade curbs on Korea are only tarnishing Japan's global reputation.

  41. MADELEY says:

    Japan's unilateral trade curbs on Korea has been tarnished Japan's image as an economic leader.

  42. ジュン says:

    So what make you not blow up the history again
    Pay 1 quartriliun dollar,
    Send our daughter to become slave, what Do you want? just make contract with China or other country. We want pay and you know many people haven't time for make apologize from they're father.
    Me and my grandpa is different so we must make apologize to make you buy our products?
    We can't like German, we must feel proud to ourself,
    Cause what our grandpa's sin is so big we know we don't have friends we just want business, we are professional,
    We don't have time for corruption, nepotism, and colonialism again (cough check data) we are better than the other, we are Professional.

  43. Azht994 says:

    Korea sure likes to bring up the forced labor event despite Japan's monetary compensation….

  44. Azht994 says:

    Japan: Breathes.

    Korea: how dare u, after WWII forced labor incident!

  45. Breezy Breezy says:

    The Japanese rep is a spineless liar, Japan’s move is on the behest of its US master who wants to punish Korean for wanting to reunite with N Korea. The US wants to kill two birds in one stone, damage Korean chip industry and renew animosity between Japan and Korea so one of them will invite US to stay in Asia.

  46. 宋JINGZHI says:

    Asian countries naturally do not support Japan’s rash rush to launch trade wars and sanctions. This is a very irregular behavior, but South Korea should also have some flexibility on some issues, not to be overly influenced by historical issues.

  47. Muhsein Kamarudin says:

    Your title is misleading Arirang News! There is no support come from ASEAN countries in this situation. ASEAN is smart enough for not taking side in this drama!

  48. Thistlejoe Lullaby says:

    SKorea didn't follow international laws and rules, and re-export Japan's materials to NKorea and related countries secretly. That's why Japan slapped SKorea's head, and then SKorea just started crying and barking. Japan has ceased to treat the untrustworthy country, SKorea specially.

  49. もみあげを剃れ says:

    ok

  50. Sa Hae says:

    Proper reflection should start with teaching the right history, not reward.
    We cannot forgive the Japanese government because it denies the right history. We also want a sincere apology rather than a reward. The Japanese government, regrettably in the beginning, has been brazen again and again in the back, showing the same attitude.
    I hope Japan learns the attitude of Germany. If you think that Germany is now the best seller of Jewish hate books, worshipping Nazi Germany and Hitler, and marching in the streets in Jewish hate protests, you can see how silly Japan really is.

    Japan always playing dirty and acting so British constantly waging a war, backstabbing, being
    unapologetic, constantly denying, acting justified, making whatever excuses to justify and hide their bad behaviors and dirty tactics, etc etc. Of course, the Emperor would say he feels "great remorse" but is he doing anything about it? No, how very Japanese-like. It's like saying, "sorry, I ran over your dog but we're not going to do anything about it and you should just get over it." Shallow and despicable.

    【South Korea erased the explanation writing to conceal their own war crimes in the Vietnam War.】
    Vietnamese people had once raised the memorial monuments by themselves. It was raised for the victims of massacres killed by the soldiers of South Korea's Army in the Vietnam War. And the explanation writing about the fact was carved on the surface of the monuments that South Korea's Army had done the cruel war crime.
    But South Korea demanded Vietnamese people to erase the explanation writing on the monuments. South Korea proposed the financial aid to Vietnam for the term of exchange.
    Because of the disparity between poverty and wealth at that time, Vietnamese people had no choice but to accept the proposal from South Korea.
    The explanation was erased.
    But the history still remains in the people's minds.
    If South Korean people really like to say "Don't forget the war crime.", they must carve the explanation writing about the massacre on the monuments again. South Korean people must do it by themselves.
    South Korean people must show other countries the actual good example of how to think over one's own war crime.
    Do it.

  72. 막걸리나 says:

    Impeach Abe

  73. Hanajima浩 says:

    The News was presented by unilateral side of South Korea, I think. The reason why Japanese authority receded the south Korea from white country list was south Korea ceased talk concerning to the trade. Japan has responsibility to confirm the 3 items which can be used for making armament not to be used for making armament. Japanese authority requested several time to have a meeting regarding exportation and importation. But south Korea did not respond in these days. Japanese Authority could not help receding south Korea from White list.

    In the United Nation, we decided to put sanctions on North Korea. But there was a suspicion that some materials would be leaked by South Korea. South Korea have a responsibility to clear the suspicions. This reason was not described on the news. This was implied on Kono’s comment. But it was not clearly said.

    As a Japanese, I sometimes feel irritation that Japanese representatives do not say clearly something on this kinds of meeting. I expect a representative say more even if it would leas a dispute.

  74. Hide Behind says:

    US needs a strong Japan, it is world's major support of keeping US Dollar strong, was the major supplier of weapons grade Plutonium and other critical elements, tritium and deutriniam but a couple, needed for newest nuclear weaponry, so called tactical nukes, which helped US hide its weapon development from Treaty obligations from Russia.
    Such enrichment was also illegal by US and UN regulatory limitations upon Japan, above 30% as energy power plants availability and storage.
    Japan exports of foods and fish that legaly cannot be sold in country for domestic consumption.
    After Fukushima blew Hillary Clinton's State Department guaranteed Japan a US market and who with Obama upped by over 1000x the limits of legal radiation levels. in foods, fish, fruit and wines and water in US, saving Japan's butt.
    Japan tried to rent and and labeled their domestic fish and rice as being from another country; It was Caught by Singapore, Hong Kong ,China and both Korean peninsula factions.
    Japan has constantly flouted international fishery laws, and its total disregard for worlds whale and open waters treaties.
    Okinawa island chain since end of WWII has been governed by US treaty obligations, unconditional surrender obligations by Japan, and while its Military footprint on Okinawa proper has decreased, granting a limited autonomy to Japan in late 1970-1990s' US has long been fortifying the chain Islands, some of which are under conflict between Japan and S. Korea over ownership.
    The geo-political Macro picture needs to be studied more closely, and not just S Korea as a micro player.
    Japan has always been a strong helper in keeping US plans of divided Peninsula as it fears a combined cheap labor, but rich in minerals N. Korea combined with S. Korea's industrial might which if possible would become more attached to China's risen economy
    Screw Japan, ads Abe and Japan's financials care not one whit about endangering Americans and other peoples by selling food items illegal for domestic consumption.
    And have lied with US protection the effects upon their own peoples and still they pushed and got Olympics, thereby endangering worlds most healthy and physicly capable youths future.

    【The critical crack between South Korea and USA.】
     SDD (Seoul Defense Dialogue) is currently scheduled to be held for next month (from 9/04 to 9/06) at Seoul.
     But USA has already announced that USA's representative will not participate in SDD about this time.
     From 2012, South Korea's MND (Ministry of National Defense) has kept holding SDD every year, and USA has kept sending either Assistant Secretary of Defense or the equivalent high offical of government to SDD as the representative of USA so far except for 2014.
     Although the participation of USA's Assistant Secretary of Defense (Randall G. Schriver) was South Korea's strong demand, USA answered that it is difficult for USA to meet South Korea's demand because Mr. Schriver will be busy for that week.
     Furthermore, Harry B. Harris Jr. (the US Ambassador to South Korea) has already cancelled not only the invited lecture in the meeting of the reservists' association in South Korea but also the attendance at the event of KIEP (Korea Institute for International Economic Policy).
     By the absences of high officials of government, USA has made complaint against South Korea's withdrawal of GSOMIA.
     Moon Jae-in keeps making cracks between South Korea and USA.

  79. Layzee Eazee says:

    This all started from Korea’s illegal export.

    It’s a big mistake to say “Japan should provide evidence of Korean illegal exports.”
    Korea has a management system that Korea doesn’t even need to reveal the names of the illegal export companies that have been caught.
    The Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry announces the names of the company and its representative and the content of administrative disposal if there was unauthorized export.
    Why doesn’t the Korean government announce the company name or the disposal details?

    Dec, 2017 Sodium fluoride was imported into Iran, which is used to make sarin gas

    Feb, 2018
    Sodium cyanide was imported into Guinea, which is used to make Cyanide gas

    Mar, 2018
    BSC(biological safety cabinet) was imported into Syria, which can be a material of biological weapons

    Jan, 2019
    Hydrogen fluoride was imported into the United Arab Emirates, which is used for sarin gas

    Diisopropylamine was imported into Pakistan and Malaysia, which is used to make VX gas

    156 illegal exports in past four years.

    산업통상자원부 acknowledged that those were exposed.

    It's been a few years since a Korean semiconductor company started building factories in China, and it is almost certain that sending semiconductor materials such as hydrogen fluoride exported from Japan to China from the beginning.
    Otherwise, the factories of Samsung and Hynix in China wouldn’t have make a move. Originally, export control is done in relation to the final destination, so it’s needed to take steps to export from Japan to China, but South Korea has bypassed it because there is no penalty. As a result, hydrogen fluoride exported from Japan has been returned to Japan as made-in-China products. So the Japanese government asked the Korean government to explain. Although the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry is not saying anything historically, the Korean side has shifted the field by continuing the unclear explanation such as "It has happened because of quality control problems". Since things that can be diverted to weapons are diverted to China, we can't move forward without discussing the actual situation. It's not just “Let's meet”, but if we don’t face each other, we can’t get into discussions. So it must be prolonged. So even if it suddenly spread to other fields, such as "destroy GSOMIA", the purpose of each problem is different, so if you do not make a proposal to conduct multiple consultations in parallel, as official or politicians in Japan they can't go on.

  80. Seo Hoju says:

    Abe treats Korea like an adversary. His intention is very dangerous. He'll be remembered who damaged Japan.

  81. Seo Hoju says:

    Abe is ruining Japan.

  82. Harry Porter says:

    In the face of Abe's crazy export restrictions, Korea will continue their determined march toward being a responsible economic powerhouse.

  83. GORO BAND OFFICIAL says:

    Fake new. Fact is totally altered.

  84. Search for Unit 731 says:

    Search for japan's 731 unit.

    The Japanese army, who have started the second world war, have bloody massacred large number of asians, used the femines as sex slaves and they even used them for their biological experiment during the war.

    However, after all that, they seemed to be not having any shame about it but were exporting products with the "rising sun flag" symbol which meant militarism during the war. More shocking fact is thing is that the Japanese government is now trying to amend the pacific constitution to re-legalize the war these days.
    The reason why they are insisting dokdo as a disputed area is because they can use it as an excuse for invasion.

    People should have more interest on this issue but don't take it lightly since this can possibly be led to "World War III" in not so far future.

    A Korean told me this channel is a crap and nobody in SK watches. Just gave the 100th thumb down, lol.

    I can't believe many Koreans are not informed that S.korea has been ignoring Japan's request for reporting, tracing and having practical meetings about strategic goods for 3 YEARS. It was the direct reason why Japan had no choice other than excluding S.Korea from whitelist and investigate each shipment by themselves. Thus I have deep doubt for their 'justice' which consist of this kind fatal lack of important information. Dear ARIRANG NEWS, did you reported that to Korean people????

    Many Malayan, SIngaporean, Thais, and Burmese workers have lost their live due to mistreatment during "Death Railway" construction but we purposely overlook it for regional peace and economic development. Japan hasn't change much after the war, never regret of their wrongdoings, cruelty and lust towards power embedded in their DNA.

    【Moon Chung-in is the same of Moon Jae-in. Both of Double Moon are lunatic.】
     Moon Chung-in told his opinion to <The Global Times>, one of China's national medias. The interview was done from 9/07 to 08 in Beijing, China. On 9/15, <The Global Times> uploaded Moon Chung-in's interview to the on-line. (※Moon Chung-in [문정인] is a Special Advisor to President Moon Jae-in of South Korea for Foreign Affairs and National Security.)
     Moon Chung-in argued that China has to arbitrate between South Korea and Japan instead of USA.
     Amazing.
     The world is divided to two classes in Moon Chung-in's brain; One is South Korea, and the other countries are classified as the followers. Of course, Moon Chung-in thinks that China is the follower of South Korea. I guess that it was so hard for the interviewer of <The Global Times> to resist laughing.
     It is not worth for China helping South Korea. Even a student of primary school knows that China is not a follower of South Korea. But Moon Jae-in and his well-wishers can't understand it. Because they are the complete beginners of the actual politics.

    【South Korea's Special Assistant to President has officially revealed that USA and UNC are the obstacles for South Korea.】
     문정인(Moon Chung-in) is Special Assistant to South Korea's President Moon Jae-in.
     On 9/08, Moon Chung-in was interviewed by ITAR-Tass (Russia) in Beijing, China. In this interview, Moon Chung-in has made assertions as follows;
    (1) The UNC (United Nations Command) has already been the obstacle for South Korea to unificate with North Korea.
    (2) South Korea deprecate the situation that USA demands South Korea to give high priority to the alliance with USA over the relation with North Korea.
    (3) If South Korea can obtain the nuclear weapon, it will be unnecessary for South Korea to keep the military alliance with USA anymore.

    【It is the high time for South Korean people to stand up for their own right.】
     The children of Moon Jae-in's friends can easily obtain the scholarship for the university education. Furthermore, they can easily become the first author of the scholarly treatise in Medical Science even though their academic abilities are senior high-school level.
     On the other hand, the children of South Korea's ordinary citizens have to go on the stage of the university education by themselves. Furthermore, there is no job for the ordinary citizen and their children in current South Korea.
     The time has come for South Korean people to bring about their own revolution.
     Both Moon Jae-in and Cho Kuk are the public enemy of South Korean people.
     If Cho Kuk once became Minister of Justice, South Korean people will be able to do nothing but live in the world of George Orwell's <1984>.

    【For the international politics, the coordinated actions among the allies are essential.】
     I am often surprised at South Korean people's happy-go-lucky opinion that South Korea is currently succeeding in the coordinated actions with USA.
     Although South Korea's government didn't previously notice the withdrawal of GSOMIA to USA, South Korean people strongly believe that USA has agreed with South Korea's decision.
     Furthermore, although USA's Assistant Secretary of Defense and other high government officials expressed concern and disappointment against South Korea's decision, South Korean people consider "USA is acting against South Korea although South Korea is senior to USA in rank of morality."
     As a result of South Korea's decision, USA's representative has already cancelled the attendances at SDD (Seoul Defense Dialogue) from 9/04 to 06.
     The US ambassador to South Korea, Harry B. Harris Jr. attended not the meeting of <the reservists' association in South Korea> but the tasting of new Hamburger.
     The works by Moon Jae-in are perfect.
    Moon is succeeding in bringing South Korea to ruin.
     Enjoy it.

    【The Captain and the Crewmen will conduct South Korean people to the Other World.】
    South Korea = the ferry-ship "Sewol"
    Moon Jae-in = the captain of ferry-ship
    the high government officials = the crewmen of ferry-ship
    South Korean people = the passengers boarding on ferry-ship
     Don't South Korean people get off the ferry-ship for the Other World ?

    >Fellow Asian countries support South Korea in its trade dispute with Japan<Arirang FAKE news, as usual. lol

  97. Young Kim says:

    Japan is a strange country which has Territorial dispute with all three neighboring countries. Wonder what is wrong with Japan.

  98. Young Kim says:

    We all should boycott Made in Japan. Japanese been boycotting every other countries for long time. More than 90% of cars sold in Japan is Japanese makers. Only none Japanese maker they buy is IPhones. I don't see anything wrong boycotting made in Japan.
    Oh one more thing Toyota had many sudden acceleration deaths in US but they did not take any responsibility. Made in Japan was only worth to buy in 80s.

    This channel is as dumb as the citizens of the country the channel originated from. It is a truly amazing market where the trash sold by trash is bought by trash. It is a sustainable supply and demand chain between trash and trash so that they can decay better with fraudulent information. South Korea, what a giant dumpster turned into a country. S Korea, I dare you to launch a full trade war with Japan and let's see who is truly important and who gets dumbed first like a piece of unrecyclable trash.

    Poor Koreans, can't get through the inferiority complex against its second-generation master.
