As much as I dislike the Koreas how do you even translate "“[South Korea] has a rich culture. I think that’s why many foreigners visit us” to “I hate Japan because it tormented Korea”

Weird how they thought they could get away with a translation like that.

While it is true that getting an accurate translation is important, and one should not make light of the issue when a media organization messes up.

Bear in mind this is also the nation that still makes frequent and very embarrassing English mistranslations so often Engrish is not just a description of what they do, it is a badge of honor. And this is the nation that teaches English to all students for between 6 and 8 years. And has programs that bring in lots of English speaking people from around the world to help teach the English and work with students on their English. And Engrish still happens. A lot.

So it should not be a huge surprise when Korean, which is generally not taught in schools, is mistranslated.

It is really much more likely the translator did not hear it well, and just made something up.

The fact that he/she made something up so controversial and offense doesn't factor in at all?

Gee-whiz.

Can we get Cellory some common sense? Seems to be running a little low.

Sometimes, people forget this little thing called the internet exists. It happens.

Prime example of people letting Japan get away with shit and bending over backwards for the land of the rising sun.

Seems like every Asian (mostly Eastern Asians) hate Japan.
I wouldn't be surprised if they did something like this every now & then honestly.

I mean, you realize this was Japanese media basically doing the same as US media does when it race baits?

EDIT: ACTUALLY.... it's worse, because google translate could do a better translation, so the truth WILL come out.

It is worst because it was 100% off. It was not real, at all. Not even close.

according to the subtitles a high school girls said, “I hate Japan because it tormented Korea.”
However, she is heard heard saying in Korean “South Korea has a rich culture. I think that’s why many foreigners visit us.”

But is anyone surprise if some Koreans actually hate Japan? (even if they might not say it out loud)

Yeah tensions between nations are high over there. Especially with the whole comfort women thing and Japans denial of war crimes.
