An American English instructor at a Korean university claimed he was not rehired because of his views on Dokdo, the disputed islets between Korea and Japan, which Tokyo calls Takeshima, in an interview with the Korea Times last week.

Quite interesting that a nationalistic Korean guy picked up James as his name, not Kim or Lee.James, South Korea
Hi. I really want to introduce my country-South Korea-to everyone. As you can see, there is a menu of introducing Japan. Yes, my country is a bit simillar to Japan. However there is a huge difference between two country. So I want to tell you the difference. More importantly, on the internet, I have seen my information on our country, for example, the name of sea is East Sea not Japan Sea. I really want to amend it.
The post is irrelevant to the thread.Quite interesting that a nationalistic Korean guy picked up James as his name, not Kim or Lee.
Sorry for my ignorance if James is a common name there.
Whatever happened to the spoiled immature people there.The South Korean government does not plan to suggest using both "East Sea" and "Sea of Japan" at this week's general conference of the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO), diplomatic sources have said.
