Michael Chang was like 5'6 or something and he was THE most consistent player in tennis. He was a top 10 player for most of his career all while many #1 players rose and sank. It's a matter of infrastructure and investment in youth development the same as any other sport.

Yea the monkey has to work it's butt off but it gets regular food, medical care and a longer domesticated life. Not that different from humans doing basically same thing. As long as there's no animal abuse.

All the excuses. Yes we all know that Japanese people you know are nice to you and you like the food. That's doesn't change the fact that WWII nationalist, fascist sentiments are still alive and well from the black van crazies and the swatstika fliers to the right wing conservative majority who see no contradiction in claiming Japan already apologized many, many times more than enough for the very things they claim didn't happen and Japan didn't do. Japan is the ONLY democratic developed country that still glorifies its racial, nationalist ideologies from early parts of the 20th century.

It must some special Japanese magic to claim you've apologized and paid money for the very things you claim you didn't do. Military industrial sexual violence against women is not something you can sweep under the rug with technicalities. Have more decency and pride in yourself.

Choi Minshik is an amazing actor and this is a very well made movie. It's being shown in metropolitan cities in the US concurrently. Stop being butthurt.

If annexation is harbinger to claims then this is over since Japan lost the war and gave up all 'annexed' land with surrender. Also the empty island policy assumes Chosun's sovereignty over Dokdo islands which Japan didn't dispute... which is why it "claimed" Dokdo terra nullis 1905 like it "claimed" Korea in 1909. Empires don't claim lands that's already part of itself during its imperial conquests. Japan didn't "claim" Hokkaido or Osaka at the turn of the century.

Sillyness. No Japan you did not magically discover and claim islands that Koreans on Ullungdo have been staring at and fishing on for thousands of year in 1905. Let's let bygones be bygones and leave your fascist imperialist claims where they belong.

Come on let's please get over this. No Japan did not magically "discover" these islets and claim them terra nullis in 1909. Koreans have been staring at them from Ullungdo and fishing on them for thousands of years. Bigger fish to fry.

Whining about China's problems does little to mitigate the fact that Germany and Japan have taken two very different paths in dealing with their histories regarding WWII war atrocities. Japan has a lot to learn from Germany.

The notable here is not that South Korea's reaction. It's that Japan conducted trade with NK for decades and is now willing to ease sanctions going against long standing policies of US and South Korea.

No one "trades" with North Korea. People from US, South Korea can't send a letter to North Korea and Japan has been sending money, cars, bicycles and all sorts of goods to NK for years until the latest "sanction."
melonbarmonsterMay. 31, 2014 - 12:40AM JST
Good grief. Congratulations Japan. You are now part of the handful of countries that actually conduct trade with NK along with Cuba, Iran, PRC. Nippon ganbare.

Japan should just pay out and quit the denials and victim blaming so the entire Asian continent can finally move on. Good grief.

The reason why Japan is losing the PR war is because Japan's position is indefensible. Good luck campaigning against WWII sex slaves, and war atrocities. Maybe the KKK and the fringe Nazi element and other neo-fascist elements would like join the Japanese government in this "propaganda war." Good grief.

I love the claim that rest of the world calls it "Sea of Japan". It calls it Sea of Japan bc Japan enforced it's colonial ambitions and propagated that name during 20th century. I suppose Korea and Manchuria would be called "Japan" if Japan had its way and then you all would be claiming that the rest of the world calls Korea and Manchuria Japan. China, the two Korea's and ALL the surround Asian countries have historically and contemporarily call it the East Sea. Facts become inconvenient when you're trying to twist the truth.
