Nice assumption but no.
Total amount of years I spent in the US: 4 1/2... total officially. But if you leave out 3x3 months for summers and 4x1 months for the winters that's subtracting 13 months meaning I actually spent more like 3 1/2 years in the US.
When did you visit Korea? Right now a lot of youngsters have this strange thought that China is the vyable "alternative" to the United States while others including myself believe China is the reason why South Korea needs to keep the US around. It's rather split.
The whole thing with Japan on my part is just a matter of practicality. Though on the surface there has been much dislike etc., South Korea's advancement during the Cold War years had a lot to do with its ties to Japan. Korean pop culture right now is something that grew out of Koreans immitating Japanese pop culture. The economic model from Park Jung-hee's days were modelled after Japan. The money to kickstart the economic boom back in the 70s and 80s came from Japan. So whether official or not, cooperation has happened because it was simply inevitable. It was the smart thing to do.
Plus where on the ID tag on the left do you see an American flag?

Tibet however, is rather recent history and it wasn't about two tribes vying for land.
You said in China' army thread, "Korea never had that problem so the Confucian books were preserved and the values were ingrained in the people's behaviors. "

But why did you S.Korean use such theory of colonialism? I doubt that you understood Confucianism. Tebit wasn't derelict territory.

Yes, today Korea isn't China's territory. Also China isn't Korea's territory. Korean want to reunion. And some Korean also wish to establish a Korean Nation-State which even include a big part of China's territory. The reason is only for establish a pure nation-state. LOL. Are you mad?

On the other hand, it is very strange, now China and South Korea have good relationship in most cases, but why did some South Korea's movie stars act the roles in a Japanese movie -Seoul 2008- which gave a public presentation that Japan occupied Korean again? Didn't these people care the thought of Chinese and your compatriot?

Well thanks for conveniently leaving out what the problem was. The problem was China's anti-traditionalist movements that had been raging for more than 60 years at one level or another. Yes, South Korea never had this problem. Probably same with North Korea to some degree.

As for not understanding Confucianism, I'd have to be completely non-Korean for this to apply. By the very nature of Korean culture, Confucianism is so strongly hard wired in that even the independent religions of Buddhism and Christianity are influenced by Confucianism. Korean Christianity (mostly on the protestant side) have retained so much of the values brought in by Confucianism that one might ask if Korean Protestant Christianity should be a seperate branch of Christianity all by itself. Even Korean atheists just drip of Confucianism in their behaviors.

Ignore those who want the lower half of Manchuria included into Korea. That's just stupid talk. You have to realize that in every country there are idiots. There are Koreans living in Manchuria and there have been for a long time but those are simply Koreans living in Chinese territory. We don't have territorial rights over an inch of Manchuria. On the flip side there are Chinese living in northern North Korea. A lot of Koreans have to learn that blood isn't everything.

I'm not sure what you mean. Especially the last sentence. As for the actors acting in that sort of movie, heck it's just a movie.

koreans in manchuria....
china has over 56 ethic gruops....everyone of them wanna have a piece of their own terriotory??
we are called chinese nation rather than korean or han nations...

and answer the tibet question, is it the same as U.S capture land from indians...

u r the first korean i ve ever seen (i got tons of korean friends at school), who think U.S is good and should be korea's master..

ur government even sell ur own citizen 's life in iraq to please U.S government....wut a nice government huh?

and talking about confuciusm again...
how the hell koreans know about confuciusm..?? tell me ? how?
can someone learn something from others and at the end learn this thing better than their master?
china wrote perhaps millinons of different kinds of books analyzing confucism in 2200 years....can cultural revolution's half-hearted activity destroy taht?

i think u just misunderstand chinese go teach koreans about confucisum as we learn from korea


provide ur goddamn souces, i am tired of ur BS

How could Koreans or any other nation neighboring China NOT know or be influenced by Confucism? China's influence in ancient East Asia was very powerful. Everyone copied them. Considering that Confucious lived before the Han Dynasty (correct me if I'm wrong), ever culture that was ever influenced by ANY Dynasty of China would have picked up on Confucism. Confucious was a smart fellow and (like Sun Tzu) he was wise enough to describe ideologies that would remain relevant for a very long time to come.

lol, ya a nice way to pay back was to take chunks of its former leader and turn it into their own territory

um... redneck 13 talking about how japanese influences everything korean and how kroeans should repeect japs and all that, i dont mind much

but if its a chinese who does that, its considered antinationlism and those people are called traitors, im not just saying that, if anybody with east asian feature goes into nanjing with a flag of japan, they will be seriously owned

sigh, japan was a former vassal state to china, so was korea, vietnam, parts of manchuria, mongolia, and asian islands.

confucious lived in Zhou Dynasty 2200 years ago (correct godofthunder buddy as he requested)

it is true that confusium heavily influenced nations around china,
then why does china need to learn confucism from Korea? we influenced u, not u influenced us....

and by the way...as lots of previous posts pointed out, cultural revolution did very very less damage to the 2200 years of learning of confuciusm as ppl only half-heartly crticized it at the END of cultural revolution (Lin Biao's death , that is after 1971)

and can u provide some sources for chinese go learn confuciusm in korea?
