Over at The Marmot's Hole, Robert Neff has put up a post showing clever maps made by folks in Korea and in Japan with too much free time on their hands. The one of Korea as a tiger that shows the decidedly non-Izanagi origins of Japan is quite cute, and the one below is quite interesting.
Anyway, this map illustrates something I always thought was a good counterpoint to those who insist the Sea of Japan should keep that name because without Japan, it would just be the Pacific Ocean: Similarly, without Korea, it would just be a much bigger Yellow Sea.
Pearls of witticism from 'Bo the Blogger: Kushibo's Korea blog... Kushibo-e Kibun... Now with Less kimchi, more nunchi. Random thoughts and commentary (and indiscernibly opaque humor) about selected social, political, economic, and health-related issues of the day affecting "foreans," Koreans, Korea and East Asia, along with the US, especially Hawaii, Orange County and the rest of California, plus anything else that is deemed worthy of discussion. Forza Corea!

I've said it before and I'll say it again, the best description of Korea I've heard is that it looks like a "Deflated hemorrhoid hanging off the ass of China."ReplyDelete
I guess that's better than Florida, which is America's wang.ReplyDelete
to Koreans Sea of "Japan" sounds like "Sea of Nazi Germany." It doesn't matter to them what kind of historical and geographical arguments either side makes, really.ReplyDelete
