    Koreans should boycott all Japanese product until Japanese government say their sincere apologies.

  • 百地三太夫 says:

    It's much quicker to impose a total ban on importing all of Japanese products than to do such a cheap movement. It can provide fully feel satisfaction, can't it??

    When my country (USA) boycotts imported products based on diplomatic disagreements, I always feel like it's just sooooo silly. One day it's French wine, the next it's German products… It's ridiculous! And now, our clown-president Trump imposed huge tarifs, which ultimately makes American consumers pay more.

    I really feel sorrow about SKoreans. If you recall what happened in 1997, and why more than half of Samsung electronic's shareholders are foreign investors, it's not the time to do self-economic sanction rather protect Samsung. Samsung's revenue (top line) accounts for
    ◆more than 20% of Korean GDP
    ◆25% of market cap
    ◆ more than 20% of revenue comes from export (semi-conductor)
    ◆1/3 of total national wealth.
    Moreover, Korea itself is highly dependent on export, which accounts for around 44% of nominal GDP (Japan is 17%). So, you can clearly understand that how Korean economy is highly dependent on "Export (especially semi-conductor)" and "Samsung", however, since majority of Samsung's shareholder are foreign, everyday, Koreans are working hard FOR Foreigners, but could not fully enjoy the benefit from the Samsung's performance. In other word, this is called "Neocolonialism" under capitalism. But don't think about blaming Samsung, which Moon is doing right now, if you beat Samsung, your economy will easily systematically collapse.
    In 1997, when Won sharply depreciated and Korean sought and begged for help to other countries, what foreign investors did was to buy the bargained Samsung stock in the market. And what currently happening is that Korean government came here to request Japan for currency swap again (means admitting the danger of default, mainly the USD external debt I suppose), since Japan rescued several time on the verge of Korean crisis, but Korean government never told or revealed to the nation this fact, since if once told people this fact, it contradict to its "anti-Japan" policy. So, what if happens again, when won depreciates sharply (which is starting right now)? It's all up to you, Koreans.

    In the mean time at a local supermarket at grocery section in my city in Tokyo, each and every section has a sign in Japanese, English, Chinese and Korean on one same board. No sign of BOYCOTT never posted here.
    It is sad to see the 40 percent of population of Korea overtook the whole country, and rest of 60 percent, composed of 40 percent anti-Moon and 20 percent neutural, must keep their mouth shut to be safe. Is this a democracy? Where is freedom of expression that we cherish with pride when we talk about suppressive governments all around us?
    This channel rarely tells opinions of anti-Moon people but we know.:           https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bj9ZNzi6dt4

    It was imprudent for Prime Minister Abe to impose export curbs on South Korea in the first place. Abe stupidly betrayed customers as a seller.
