Sound Familiar?

Posted by Brian on March 17, 2005

From the Korean Herald, on the Dokto issue:

Ami Ono, a 19-year-old student from Fukuoka University who was on a three-day tour to Seoul, said she was just surprised to hear about what’s happening between Korea and Japan.

“I don’t know much about Takeshima. I’m surprised, really (to hear that Korean people are that upset,)” she said.

Which sounds a lot like comments I heard from Americans in the months after the Ohno-Kim incident: “I don’t know much about the Ohno thing. I’m surprised that Koreans are still that upset over it.”
