No agreement on Japan-Korea History

This Article highlights a lot of what we have discussed in class about the different views of history held by Koreans and Japanese. To this day, neither side can agree on such issues as the amount of influence Japan had on Korea in ancient times. This article has a really good overview of key areas where the two countries differ in views, from colonial times to war efforts, and even includes information about women forced into prostitution for the Japanese army. When it comes to the dispute between these two nations, some things neverr change.
