Chinese government controlled media threatens China will militarily and economically retaliate if South Korean coast guards shoot at Chinese fishermen illegally operating in South Korea.
Experts note that without Chinese fishermen stealing from South Korean waters, Chinese fishing industry would face collapse, due to China's fishing grounds being completely depleted from overfishing. This is forcing the Chinese government to support their fishermen to expand their territories.
If South Korea just let Chinese fishermen to continue catching in Korean waters, South Korea will also face similar fish depletions that China is going through now, which could mean the end of Korean fishing industry. Over 50 million Koreans depend heavily on seafoods for daily intakes of protein. Without fish, this country which imports most of its food, could face a serious food crisis. South Korea's mistake was around 25 years ago when the Chinese started to encroach on South Korea. Korea should have dealt with the Chinese fishermen in a firm hardline manner which would have ended their encroachment which was small in numbers compared to today. But instead, South Korea chose to kick the problem bucket down the road into the future, and we're now having to deal with a much bigger problem on our hands. It's like you gave someone a free dime everyday, then you give them a dollar, and soon enough he now wants everything you got. South Korea now has to choose, either having a viable fishing industry and sovereignty, or Chinese tourists.
Philippines president negotiating with China, gives away their territorial rights to China:
This is what China is expecting from South Korea as well. So far their hardline attitude towards South East Asia has worked, as China has not suffered any consequences for its actions. China's position is that they are just too big to fail.
Hello everyone! I am currently a junior in uni studying Linguistics and TEFL. My senior year I plan on doing a year long study abroad. I am required to study 2 languages, 1 for 2 years and 1 for a year, for my degree (I am studying Chinese right now and will study the second while abroad). I am wondering if anyone has any firsthand knowledge regarding study abroad trips to either Thailand (Mahidol University) or South Korea (Korea University). Any advice, tips, etc. are welcome!
To give some background information:
I don't have a preference over studying Thai vs. Korean. I plan on teaching abroad and learning both either way.
I have been to Thailand before and really enjoyed my time there. I also have Thai friends who study/studied at Mahidol and who live in Thailand that could help me in an emergency. And help me study Thai!
I live in Alaska and am used to extreme cold, I am from Idaho so I'm also used to extreme hot.
I have wanted to study in Korea for a long time and wanted to go in high school but my parents wouldn't let me.
I also plan on getting my CELTA certification while on study abroad through a program in Bangkok.
Since I will be a senior and have all/most of my degree requirements done before I go I'm not worried about either University having specific classes for my degree.
As you may or may not know, South Korea removed its President for bribery charges last week.
She is the daughter of a former Korean dictator named Park Chung Hee.
For many Koreans, especially older Koreans, he is seen as a "hero" because of his economic policies (specifically protectionist policies and close ties and support of conglomerates) that led to the super fast growth of South Korea. Korea was poorer than Iraq in the 60s and now is one of the richest countries in the world.
How much of this "myth" is actually true? Which economic policies implemented by Park led to the growth of South Korean economy? Were there other factors that were at play here?
Please help an uninformed Korean.
After a long period of separation, the two countries have been united once more! We will be putting much time and effort into cleaning up the north as well as modernizing it and making use of the resources the land has to offer. All work camps will be turned into museum about the struggle between our previously divided nation and as a memorial for those who were sent there.
[META] After talking to the mods, North Korea is permanently united with South Korea. Korea can no longer be divided by a claim.
