ROK Foreign Minister tells AP that Japan should better educate its people on its past

There's always going to be a problem when one country cannot forget and the other cannot remember.

I think that what Prime Minister Kim says below is kind of important, but perhaps instead of drilling this point home all the time with government officials, maybe they should look into making some K-dramas that focus on this issue.

Perhaps a lot of people who love "Winter Sonata" will also start to understand why so many people in Korea are so upset about Japan's imperial past.

From the AP (via WaPo):

"When the Japanese government claims Dokdo is their territory, Korean people (take) it as another attempt to invade our country," Kim said. "So that's the Korean sentiment and I hope that Japanese government understands this."
