    Don't get me wrong I love them both as they create amazing stuff, but why can't they let go of the past and enjoy the present and even better the future :D

    Here's an analogy:
    If a friend beat you up and seemed to be unapologetic about it, would you still be their friend?

    Obviously, people and nations change, but some wounds cut deep and not everyone is so virtuous as to be able to put such things behind them.

    I thought Japan and Korea ( South) got along pretty well. I mean many Kpop groups moved over to Japan and are welcomed there.

    I think Japan-China will be more accurate in terms of not getting along....

    Well, let's see, just off the top of my head, there's Dokdo - Takeshima, North Korean Pachinko Parlors (and other ventures by Pro DPRK groups who operate openly), Japanese annexation of the Korean peninsula in 1910, and prior to that Japanese vs Chinese squabbling over the spoils of Korea (mind now, the Koreans hate the Chinese as much or even more); oh... and did we forget to mention the comfort women issue? Hmmm... how much time to we have? LOL...


    But in terms of the comfort women issue, to be fair, an aspect that is generaly overlooked, is that the Japanese authorities did much the same to their own women, both for their own troops and after the American occupation, for the use of their conquerors:

    About Japanese women being used for this purpose, they even made movies about this in Japan back in 1965:
