Oh Boy.

Right on the heels of a post earlier today, The Marmot’s Hole found this. This is not a reaction isolated to Korea, but no matter where it happens, all I can say is “GROW UP!”.

On the reverse side, maybe the Koreans can see why the Westerners were upset about the Coreana adverts now, but even to that I would like to say to a lot of Westerners, “GROW UP!” It was bad, but it was not the end of the world. Things like this happened in many countries. You don’t see me crying every time someone mentions the Boer War and it's concentration camps, do you? Why do people, Westeners AND Koreans, need to start screaming every time someone mentions a Nazi or a anything related to the Japan?

Lizzie van Zyl. This is a very common surname among MY people. That is what they did to OUR women and children. Nice, isn't it. Half a century later the Germans picked up the idea. Before then, and since then it has happened again. Argentina between 1976 and 1983 as an example.

It is done. Spend your energy making sure this doesn't happen again. Don't spend it on whining about a single girl dressed in a silly costume.
