It's like the French hating the English over being repeatedly beaten in battles I suppose.
All along the Southeren coast of England were little fishing villages which were periodically attacked by French sailors, and every once in a while the English gave their navy a wopping. But it's got nothing to do with me personally.
Japanese travelling in Asia often get the cold-shoulder and are the brunt of verbal (and probably) physical attacks because of what their media tells them the Japs are supposed to have done.
I recall reading somewhere about how one band of invading Japanese cut thousands of noses off Koreans. It sounds a pretty gross thing to do, and the Koreans remember this event through their media keeping it aired. Korea has often been attacked and occupied by Japan in recorded history and now Japan is relatively subdued in its warring the former victims of the superior Japanese military machine are keen to try to balance the scales.
The Japanese also did some somewhat unfriendly things during the last so-called 'World-War,' like whoring-out their women and basically enslaving the men. But then again there are a lot of exaggerations as well.
After the hostilities of the WW were ended the Japanese became a persecuted class in their own countries as the Allies empowered the Koreans and the Chinese over them. Discrimination against Japanese by foreigners is a historical event which the Japanese have largely put behind them (in my opinion).
But then those Koreans with an axe to grind wouldn't be able to do all their posturing if it wasn't for the solid education which the Japanese forced on them while they occupied their country.
NK honestly doesn't bother me and I believe they are basically not interested in world-conquest or anything like that. They just want the Yanks out and to be left alone. The NK's believe SK is just a puppet state of the US, and perhaps they are right? How many Koreans living in the South are filled with dire warnings about the North c/o their 'Westernised' media and ZOG-written version of history? And how many NK's are filled with hostility towards the S because of their own re-interpreted account of what went on?
* If I go on like this I'm going to become like Dark S and start hating all humans!
Isn't it all so stoopid!
