    well, my stand here is: It is natural for a sovereign country to set its parameters. it's also a way
    of keeping there state sovereign. my point here is I do think that the Japanese media is exaggerating the Koreans way of expressing their view. It is what media is all about, "FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION." The Japanese media should understand this matter. However, my advice for the two countries is that there are matters or issues that should live confidential or should only be tackled legally or in the right orderly and diplomatic way, without ruining one's name. Matters such as this, especially that it involves the security and international relations, should be left in the hands of the people in the government or those who are with proper authority and knowledge...
    That would be all..Thanks! :-B

    They are just respectable individuals who proudly root for their own nation. How can they be considered as anti-Japanese?

    Again, CORRECTION PLEASE. Song Il Kook did NOT SWIM ALL THE WAY TO DOKDO. He took part of the relay swimming with singer Kim Jang-Hoon and 40 other students from Korea Athletic University. Does anyone verify the information before posting false information here?

    the japanese need to realize that each country is going to claim the land as their own. I think the japanese need to grow up. it is ridiculous that they are banning them from entering the country and even canceling their shows and appearances. they are criticizing people for standing up for what they believe in and for standing up for their nationality. I am sure the japanese are doing the same thing, claiming it as their own. this "anti-japanese" term is really starting to annoying me and it is making me mad. they are standing up for something. they don't have anything against the japanese, just what they believe is different. I am not asian, I am American so I don't really have a say on who the land really belongs to and as far as my history knowledge on the matter goes, they have both inhabited the island at some point, over the years.

    This whole thing is ridiculous. Apparently having an opinion (that Dokdo is Korea's) makes you Anti-Japanese,wow. Things should just be left the way it is, Japan has claimed soverignity over Dokdo but Korea has so much things going on there. Doesn't it make it 50/50. If you really think about it,they're merely rocks.

    Well first of all don't blame ALL Japanese media. Like in England or many nations there's a Left and Right media. The Rightwing media in Japan are the one inflaming this hatred.

    Second let me say that someone who is a Right Wing racist in Japan , who hates Korea, would think as follows "ok... you are Korean you will back Korea like I back Japan... but if you want to make money here, saying Dokdo is Korean is like a slap in the face." Their whole worldview is predicated on fear, hate, and viewing people as THINGS and EXTENSION of races and countries, not as an individual with rights of free speech and expression.


    In truth this is a bigger issue for Japan than Korea. To Korea it's a few rocks that the Japan, when they were Fascists tried to steal from Korea... like Nazis tried to steal parts of Europe like Poland and France.

    For the Japanese though, it's an issue of confronting the EVIL of their FASCIST PAST. Japan has disputes with EVERYONE. With every single neighbor! All due to the exact same thing: they took land while they were invading other countries in the 1800s and early 1900s... now Right wing nuts want to try to claim that the territory is theirs. They are fighting Russia over the Kuril Islands, China over Diaoyu (Taiwan with Tiaoyutai). It's not just Korea. They are stirring Richard Simmons all over the Pacific.

    For Japanese Right Wing nuts it's not just rocks but being able to DENY that they killed all those hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians, raped and enslaved all those thousands of women, tortured, experimented and killed all those tens of thousands of POWS (from America and our allies). Right now there's a huge issue brewing, much LARGER than this one with Korea for the APEC summit when China is going to go toe to toe with the Japanese Neo Fascists over their dispute.

    It's dark times ahead for Japan. I feel bad for its people.

    Hold on, these people said that Dokdo belongs to Korea. Did they necessarily say that they hate Japan? All they said was their beliefs.

    well yea, that's because a third party should not be involved because dokdo islands are korea's islands. there is no doubt about it. the japanese refuse to admit to their cruel acts during the war and they refuse to let go of the islands because of its richness in potential gas and abundant fishing areas. why should the international court of justice be involved when all the Richard Simmons are gonna do is pay off the officials like they have done in the past over and over and over again to screw korea over.

    To those who said Dokdo Island is just "merely rocks", you're so wrong. Countries, just like companies, still have to see things that will give themselves stability, especially financially. A country with healthy economy often means that every other aspects will be healthy too. So why do Japan and South Korea want to claim this "mere rocks"? That's because according to BBC, Liancourt Rocks (the international name for the island, I guess) is in an area of rich fishing grounds and is reported that the area may contain large deposits of natural gas. These, are the REAL reasons why the dispute is still ongoing. Japan and Korea both NEED those natural resources.

    It's not about pride, or nationality, or anything. It's purely for economical reason. The nationality pride issue is brought along because it is possibly the strongest "mask" to put on to fight for the sovereignty of those "mere rocks".

    The reasoning behind my opinion? I'm Indonesian and we have our share of "sovereignty claims" fights with Malaysia. Each disputes opens my eyes more to the fact that in every disputed islands/territories, there is always at least one natural resources beneath.

    It's not stupid if you're fighting over this because of the economical gains. But to fight over whose land is it purely out of nationalism is retarted. We all see the clear losses this whole event has brouhgt, but what is the gain for nationalists?
    Artists should just shut up about it and let politicians fight over politics. Hallyu artist are supposed to bring cultures closer together

    They're people of their own respectful countries. They're no doubt swept up by this wave of "national pride" and stuff. That's why on another thread I said that I hate it when this kind of politics made it into something neutral, like music.
