Sorry to butt in. But there are a lot of Korean-Japanese people in Korea. My best friend is Korean-Japanese.
Japan can't have any more "colonies" because they would then break the Postdam declaration with the Allies. Bla bla bla. And of course the effects would still last. That's how history is made. You mold the influences you get form them into your own. It's not strange finding half-half people anywhere.


O_o? rly? i lived in center city seoul half my life (im korean myself) and never came across even one. well of course japan doesnt have modern colonies; its army is limited by some degree to the defensive by the allies isnt it? and yes the effects last, but my question is then where have they disappeared to in china, korea, SE asia, etc.

Japan and Philippines do have a connect. The Spaniards, Americans and Japanese have occupied that island a long time ago well not really a long time but you get the point. So that is why some of their customs and cultures have been rubbed off to the Filipinos

Japan has as well took control manchiria, china, the phillipines, and many of the other south-east asia areas and I bet if you looked hard enough you would see plenty half japanese half koreans.


nah my point is that im coming across unusually many fil-japs (no racist intentions, just abbreviation) WITHOUT looking for them. i havent seen many other half-jap ppl, and no doubt if i looked hard, there'd be a large number, but since i find the mentioned mix without much effort at all im assuming that there are significantly more individuals in that range.


I am completely shocked how you havnt come across any half white americans half japanese o.o you know them white boys from cali!

Yes the Allies limited the extent of the military power of Japan. Well, my best friend, his name is Hyun Kyo(funny name actually), has this strong denial that he is partly Japanese. So far, most of the Koreans I know, and most of them are partly Japanese, have this deep hatred for Japanese people. That could be one of the reasons why you don't "find" any half's. Also during the Japanese Forcible Occupation to Korea, the Japanese did rape, torture, kill, discriminate Koreans mercilessly. You being Korean, well...
Technically, it's not like you traveled all of Japan and Korea and/or China, you probably just haven't found the place where there is the most population of those halfs. Am I making sense??

You should go see Boulder or Aurora, Colorado. Tons and tons of Korean-Japanese, Korean-Americans, Japanese-Americans, and Japanese-Filipinos.

Oh and also the women that go to Japan to be hostesses or something.


You know its rare these days to find someone who knows their history and for that you deserve a cuddle.


Ha ha. Thanks I guess.
Philippine history is pretty interesting, esp. the 100-year colonization of the Spaniards.


actually its a 300 year colonization (by the way i'm filipino)

LOL you got a lot of conservative friends there, in modern korea almost no one thinks that way anymore O_o yeah i did receive education on the topic, in fact my great-uncle was killed during the occupation. Mmm, the most likely place for japanese people would be Busan, a southern seaport city known for being occupied by japanese forces for a prolonged period compared to the rest of korea. it's also my dad's hometown so ive been there a lot, but again, no go O_o i can't say much on china or japan bc i havent been around besides the major cities but i still think see some kind of a trend...???

O_O i know it sounds like a ridiculous question at first but ive seen so much of it that it's beginning to stand out. i mean if i saw lots of korean-japanese and chinese-japanese, itd be a tiny bit more logical as the countries are closer together, but hmmm...just noticed that these two countries seem to be...more linked than normal. or maybe im just weird, then never mind me ^^;;

NOTE: i am aware of the WWII significance of soldiers and comfort women and rape and other...activities. but also note that this didn't happen in ONLY the philippines, and that the events were 60 years ago -- so my question is, what is the factor, if there is any, that still links these two cultures together even today despite the passage of time and the significant distance.


Japanese and Philippines are more similar than you'd think, especially when it comes to tradition. Interesting because not only did they have minimal contact(Japan was in isolation for a good amount of time) but have different religions as well(with most Filipinos being devout Catholics). The Japanese contact didn't account for much really, as they're like oil and water at the time. A few notable ones would be as follows:

Japanese would respectfully address strangers or acquaintances as onii-san, onee-san, oji-san and oba-san. Filipino do the same with kuya, ate, tito and tita. They mean (big)brother, (big)sister, uncle, auntie.

Omiyage and pasalubong. IIRC, the Japanese analog have a Chinese origin.

Shrine Festivals and Fiestas.

The love for freebies.

As for the Fil-Japs, Filipinos who went to Japan for work got married there, so there. There aren't many Japanese in the Philippines as compared to Koreans and Chinese.

I don't know about them being conservative. I think it's because their parents or the grandparents influenced them. Dunno. My best friend's uncle was a senator in Korea maybe he was taught to be hostile, then again he is a bit of a brute. Ha ha. Ehh... well, once oyu go to a place where Asians dominate the area, specifically Oriental Asians, you'd basically see them bunch. San Francisco has a lot. Washington as well.

I've seen many Filipino/white, Filipino/black, Filipino/hispanic, Filipino/with other Asians. so I don't know. I don't think it's because of WW2. I just think because there are so many Filipino that's why. My mom has Filipino friend and she told me that Filipino likes to get married with Foreigners so that they could have mix babies. But that's just what she said so I'm not totally sure if it's true or not. But yeah, I've seen so many mixed Filipino. Leah Dizon is the example.
