Note: the history.
Remember when Japan decided that they wanted to be a global power and got it through their head that attacking and conquering other nations was the way to do that? Asia was fighting before the rest of WWII broke out and then they just kind of continued when everyone else also started attacking each other.
And how they invaded Korea and China and how horribly they treated the people? That wasn't so long ago for the wounds to have healed.
Yeah. They still don't like each other completely.
Koreans have problems with the Japanese and the Japanese have problems with the Koreans.

I don't know if I should tell people about what I can tell about this survey but as Japanese myself I can tell why South Korea is the most hated country among Japanese net users. For me it seems Korean drams and K-pop are popular out side of the internet users in Japan but since there are some Japanese born Korean descendants in Japan some of them have attacked Japanese net users. Actually,I have beeen attacked by them many times too while only telling other Japanese net useres that how popular anime and manga are outside of Japan. I don't know if they are really Korean descendants or not (some of them could be someone who try to frame Korean people though).

Useally what they do is while they putting down on Japanese culture they praise South Korean culture and tell Japanese net users that how Koreans teach things and educate Japanese and blame what Japan had done to Korea during WW 2.
Also there are always someone who translates what bad things South Korean media have said about Japan or how they claimed that good things in Japan are originate from Korea or something like that so those things has made Japanese net users angry and unfortunately the things are getting worse and worse.

Why I say Japnese net users is because it seems people who don't know how to use computer or don't have the internet access haven't been exposed to such things so they have different opnion about Korea. So if you do the same survey outside of the internet you will see the diffrent result. (now you know why South Korea can be both popular and most hated contry in Japan)

As for Japanese born Chinese descendants I almost have never seen them doing that to Japanese net users or seldom seen Chinese media putting down on Japan other than WW 2. They also never tell Japanese people how China had thought or educate Japan during their past history of the years. As for this matter China is more laid back and this is why China is less hated.

As for what has been believed what Korean descendants are doing on Japanese internet I have heard some opinions like they are mostly North Koreans who are doing that trying to split Japan and South Korea. We also have Noth Korean descendants who have gone to Noth Korean schools(Yes, we have schools for North Koreans in Japan) and they still worship Kim Jong-il. They hung Kim Jong-il's photographs on the top of black boards in their class rooms and support Noth Korean government.

I expected Korea to be at the top and China to follow closely. <_<
Japan is a very unpopular country with the older generations of other Far East Asians. In Japan, they act as though all the bad things they did over the course of history never happened. In Japanese schoolbooks there is little to no information on what Japan did during WWII.

The relations between the Korean and Japanese are very bad. During WWII, Japan was extremely anti-Korean. They took over Korea, ruled it with an iron fist and tried to cancel out their culture. To this day, they still despise each other.

The Chinese and Japanese also dislike each other because of the war crimes Japan had commited. Especially with the Rape of Nanjing where it was described as,

"Everyday hundreds of young girls would be taken away from their families to be raped, they used people as practise targets, they forced families to commit incest and monks who had taken oaths of celibacy to rape women. They even raped many pregnant woman and one had her fetus ripped out by the soldiers."

The Japanese Army also captured many women around Eurasia and turned them into sex slaves known as 'Comfort Women'

The Japanese government refuses to perform a formal apology despite the fact that it's already been years and even Germany apologised for all their wrongdoings.

Cherruyue,you should read this.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treaty_on_Basic_Relations_between_Japan_and_the_Republic_of_Korea

This is what Korean government had hidden from their own people for a long time and most of Korean poeple still don't know this.
I'm getting tired of Korean pople saying Japan has never apologized.

I know abot "Comfort women" and I feel sorry about them and I belive they were doing that against their will so I don't understand why there are 30,000 Korean women comming to Japan and staying and working illegally in this modern day especially when Korea is already a developed country. I think they should not do it if they care about those"Comfrot women".

I'm sorry about that previous post, I did not actually type that up. I believe one of my cousins was on this account before. Probably watching Shugo Chara or something...
I wish to clear up some things. I will also state that I am not Korean myself so I can't describe anything from their POV but will attempt to maintain a neutral view and I do not wish to offend anybody.

I am already aware of the Treaty on Basic Relations between Japan and the Republic of Korea
I know Japan has already “apologised” many times. Every Emperor and Prime Minister since the end of WWII has apologised to China and South Korea. China is more laidback about this although South Korea rejected the apologies because they felt meaningless.
It is sometimes claimed that unlike Germany, which as a nation apologized for the actions of the Nazis in Europe, Japan has never formally apologized to the Asian nations that were invaded by the Japanese armies. Several apologies from Prime Ministers and the Diet notwhistanding, to this day Asians that lived through the Japanese occupation continues to see the Japanese as generally unrepentant. Japan has, however, paid over 300 billion Yen in war reparations to the nations it occupied, with some formal apologizes to former POWs by a few Japanese ambassadors.

The Japanese are proud people; admitting such crimes against humanity would be a serious social sin of losing face, and as such, the education system in Japan tends to "whitewash" the more brutal aspects of Japanese history (something non-existent in Germany, where a good chunk of history class is spent on Nazi Germany), pretending little of interest actually happened. This translates to few works of Anime (or other media) referencing this history, even when the work is "historic" in nature. An action that causes Japan's neighbors to take great offense.

Many important figures involved in Japanese war crimes went unpunished, most notably the scientists of Unit 731 (in exchange for their research material on biological weapons) and Emperor Hirohito. To prevent a second "Treaty of Versailles", and because Japan was needed as an ally against the emerging communist regimes in Asia, America was very soft on Japan after the surrender. Finally, several senior Japanese officers who weren't involved in war crimes were nonetheless tried, convicted, and executed on trumped-up chargse primarily to avenge the humiliating defeats they had inflicted on U.S. and British forces during the early stages of the war, leading some Japanese to dismiss those war crimes trials that did occur as "victors justice." All this and the lack of a Japanese counterpart of "Denazification" are largely responsible for the country's cavalier attitude toward its past crimes.

About the Zainichi Koreans:
Modern Zainichi Koreans can trace their diaspora to the early 20th century under Imperial Japanese rule. In 1910, as the result of the Japan–Korea Annexation Treaty, all Korean people became subjects of the Empire of Japan. Koreans claimed that Japanese land and production confiscation initiatives against Korean farmers during the 1910s caused a wave of forced migrants during the 1920s, while Japanese claim that Japanese colonisation kick-started Korea's defunct feudal economy and that majority of immigration was due to voluntary immigration seeking better economic opportunities.
Immediately following the end of World War II, there were roughly 2.4 million Koreans in Japan; the majority repatriated to their ancestral homes in the southern half of the Korean peninsula, leaving only 650,000 in Japan by 1946.
The reason why many Koreans wish to have rights in Japan to "compensate" for everything they had lost.

Whether this is wrong or right is not for me to decide.

Sorry if I sounded nosy to you. I was just curioes about what othere Asian people think about Japan other than Korean or Chinese people about this matter. I sometimes talk about what I see on English websites with other Japanese people - mostly we talk about anime and manga though - and I thought we need to talk more about what you said seriously and if I knew where you are from it would help us.

This is what Korean government had hidden from their own people for a long time and most of Korean poeple still don't know this.
I'm getting tired of Korean pople saying Japan has never apologized.

I know abot "Comfort women" and I feel sorry about them and I belive they were doing that against their will so I don't understand why there are 30,000 Korean women comming to Japan and staying and working illegally in this modern day especially when Korea is already a developed country. I think they should not do it if they care about those"Comfrot women".


Eh? .__.
I'm sorry about that previous post, I did not actually type that up. I believe one of my cousins was on this account before. Probably watching Shugo Chara or something...
I wish to clear up some things. I will also state that I am not Korean myself so I can't describe anything from their POV but will attempt to maintain a neutral view and I do not wish to offend anybody.

I am already aware of the Treaty on Basic Relations between Japan and the Republic of Korea
I know Japan has already “apologised” many times. Every Emperor and Prime Minister since the end of WWII has apologised to China and South Korea. China is more laidback about this although South Korea rejected the apologies because they felt meaningless.
It is sometimes claimed that unlike Germany, which as a nation apologized for the actions of the Nazis in Europe, Japan has never formally apologized to the Asian nations that were invaded by the Japanese armies. Several apologies from Prime Ministers and the Diet notwhistanding, to this day Asians that lived through the Japanese occupation continues to see the Japanese as generally unrepentant. Japan has, however, paid over 300 billion Yen in war reparations to the nations it occupied, with some formal apologizes to former POWs by a few Japanese ambassadors.

The Japanese are proud people; admitting such crimes against humanity would be a serious social sin of losing face, and as such, the education system in Japan tends to "whitewash" the more brutal aspects of Japanese history (something non-existent in Germany, where a good chunk of history class is spent on Nazi Germany), pretending little of interest actually happened. This translates to few works of Anime (or other media) referencing this history, even when the work is "historic" in nature. An action that causes Japan's neighbors to take great offense.

Many important figures involved in Japanese war crimes went unpunished, most notably the scientists of Unit 731 (in exchange for their research material on biological weapons) and Emperor Hirohito. To prevent a second "Treaty of Versailles", and because Japan was needed as an ally against the emerging communist regimes in Asia, America was very soft on Japan after the surrender. Finally, several senior Japanese officers who weren't involved in war crimes were nonetheless tried, convicted, and executed on trumped-up chargse primarily to avenge the humiliating defeats they had inflicted on U.S. and British forces during the early stages of the war, leading some Japanese to dismiss those war crimes trials that did occur as "victors justice." All this and the lack of a Japanese counterpart of "Denazification" are largely responsible for the country's cavalier attitude toward its past crimes.

About the Zainichi Koreans:
Modern Zainichi Koreans can trace their diaspora to the early 20th century under Imperial Japanese rule. In 1910, as the result of the Japan–Korea Annexation Treaty, all Korean people became subjects of the Empire of Japan. Koreans claimed that Japanese land and production confiscation initiatives against Korean farmers during the 1910s caused a wave of forced migrants during the 1920s, while Japanese claim that Japanese colonisation kick-started Korea's defunct feudal economy and that majority of immigration was due to voluntary immigration seeking better economic opportunities.
Immediately following the end of World War II, there were roughly 2.4 million Koreans in Japan; the majority repatriated to their ancestral homes in the southern half of the Korean peninsula, leaving only 650,000 in Japan by 1946.
The reason why many Koreans wish to have rights in Japan to "compensate" for everything they had lost.

Whether this is wrong or right is not for me to decide.


Ok Cherrye, I understand what you actually wanted to tell people here about Japan. By the way I want to konw that if you are not Korean where are you from then? Are you Asian? I'm just curious.



I personally don't see the point of you trying to find out my background.


Oh,I said I'm just curious and if you don't want to reveal it it's ok.

The Korean and Japanese are on pretty bad terms with each other if it's within their home countries.
Within multicultural communities the people tend to get along alot better and there is almost no hate at all. The Chinese people are so widespread and have lived in multicultural societies for so long that nearly everybody gets along with them. Alot of people just admire the Koreans and Japanese for pop cultural reasons.
Within the older generations there's alot more tension.
I mean it was hard for my parents to get married because of it...

Oh well, anyway thank you for your inconvinience.

I actually try not to discuss about this subject any farther because I've seen many times that once people started to talk about this matter things are getting really nastier and nastier and it usually wouldn't go any where and I see it happens a lot on anime and manga fan sites since there are many Asians on the sites. If it happens on nationalisitc Asian community sites I can talk about it though- I try not to go to those kind of sites- but since Crunchyroll is where people around the world get together and talk about their likes and make friends I don't think it's suitable for going on the subject, besides those people who are not Asians wouldn't be so intrested to see us talking about it like we Asians are not so interested in the matters of middle east or Africa.
