Japan, Korea: Grateful Colonies

Oranckay rebuts an article in the Japan Times that argues, among other things, that Japanese colonial rule benefited Korea. “It’s one thing to know that mentioning “Japan’s contribution to Korea’s modernization… only creates anger in Korea,” but it’s another to understand that one of the reasons it angers Koreans so much is because many among the Japanese Right talk as if it that justifies all Japan’s abuses or as if Korea has something to be thankful for.”
