South Korea is more and more approaching North Korea. We are seeing them go to be united. In a word, Joseon nationalism. Mr. Moon, President of South Korea is nationalist in that meaning. He did things according to his belief. A variety of things related to that cause a lot of problems between South Korea and us. In short, Japan doesn't want South and North be united, they do. At least, South do.
1. One of big issues is a fierce protest of Korean government against Japan's action, "removing Korea out of (so-called) White list". If you want to know more, watch this video (28:52~). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGomBXxBP3M&... Rui Matsukawa (Member of the House of Councillors, Liberal Democratic Party) explains it in detail with English translation. (And, most of Korean mass media follows Korean government opinion and has not informed it correctly, so Korean people don't know this issue correctly, I think.)
It ’s difficult to explain in short… It is also based on the fact that various things have so far accumulated.
Regarding this time, the starting point is that Japan removed Korea from the export preferential list. As a result, South Korea has taken longer to import the materials necessary for manufacturing products.
The reason Japan did this suggests that it has gained some evidence that some of South Korea's imports are flowing to North Korea, which is undergoing economic sanctions. The media is also getting that.
However, most Koreans recognize this as retaliation for a court ruling that occurred in Korea. (Although it is said that the Korean government is inciting like that ...) That's why it's awkward. Some people are aware of the instigation, but not many. In addition, there are very few people who talk about instigation because it is easy to receive overwhelming criticism if opinions contrary to the mainstream opinion are expressed.
Since it becomes a long sentence, omitted here about the trial. Since friendly people in both countries are annoying, I hope that the situation will soon be settled.
