o.O definitely not Italians.  Koreans tend to get very loud when they speak :D not that I am offended by it, but I say Italians never get that loud when talking to each other, so yeah.  And in reality Japanese actually talk softer, and I would compare them to Italians, actually that is a great comparison

Please note, this isn't about Japanese or talking loud.

If you add Irish, Italian, Jewish all three ethnic people together what would you have??? Korean. In national character Koreans share Irish trait, Italian trait, and Jewish trait.

I'd have thought the Japanese were closer to the Italians: an advanced empire that copied an older civilisation (Greece/China) and conquered less "civilised" tribes (Celts/Koreans)

I have Returned.....


I personally did not want to come back to this forum as I  have made too many erroneous comments in the past, but I fear that I can do more good by being here than being absent. I'm too much of a loud mouth to stay silent for long anyway, but I believe in redemption and will try to repair some of the trollish damage that I may have caused.


My Main Goal:

My main goal is to try to bring understanding between people rather than misunderstanding. The World is in trouble and we have to try to cope with what's going on.


-------


Topic at hand:


No,  

It's often too easy to compare different culture to try find similarities but I have always depended on Wiki, they are quite good. Korean Culture has evolved very differently than Europeans. I would like to put an emphasis on isolation and what that entails: Sometimes it can be good, South Korea; sometimes it can be bad, North Korea.

Latest show that I am enjoying right now is "That Winter, The Wind Blows"

his show is too good to miss.

Nick, the Koreans hardly compare to a lesser civilized people than the Japanese. I would recommend you read Stephen Turnbull's "Samurai Invasion" and note that the Koreans, when treated by the Samurai as were ordinary Japanese people of the 16th Century, were appalled. The Koreans were recognized masters of the Confucian classics, several rising very high in Chinese service, and Korean celadon potters equaled and in some techniques surpassed the very best Chinese celadon potters. During the Chinese Ming era, Korean porcelains were highly valued, and in the wake the Imjin wars entire pottery villages were forcibly removed to Japan, where their descendants made significant contributions to Japanese pottery, a fact that many Japanese pottery firms freely acknowledge.

It is not a popular subject among Koreans, but the people who became the Japanese and the modern Koreans sprang from a Steppe warrior people who crossed the Peninsula to Japan several millennium ago. 

Japan's colonization of Korea arose from the 19th century weakness of the Choseon dynasty. During the colonial period, the Japanese themselves viewed the Koreans as sharing a common civilization, and indeed were among the founders of Korean archaeology, which was not taken seriously in Confucian times.

In short, while the Celts too produced some very fine crafts, like gold working, and possessed obvious artistic skills, The Koreans had a far higher and more complex level of civilization.   

Better yet, when you've saved up some vacation, take three weeks off some October (the best time) and visit Kyoto, Japan, Seoul, Korea, and Taipei, Taiwan hitting the museums. I say Taiwan because it has the National Palace Museum, which still is, perhaps for only a few years more, the pre-eminent Chinese museum in the world. I think you'll come away with a far greater appreciation of East Asian culture. Each is unique, and all share many things in common.

There's been a lot of research done about "Japanese" origin in recent years, much of it done by Japanese themselves. One issue in particular that the Japanese seems to have hard time dealing with has to do with the origin of the "Emperor of Japan."  The latest evidence seems to indicate that the Emperor of Japan may have originated in Korea.  It's a touchy issue that the Japanese scholars generally tend to sidestep. However, the imperial family have acknowledged that they may have originated from Korea.

Wow, discriminations fly! For me, the most impressing thing about Korea is their pride. After the boat-sink accident, the vice chief of the high school suicided , and the public event urged the captain to kill himself. Korean athlete Kim Yu-na's failure to win the champion in Sochi Olympics, was called a national humiliation, and the UK girl who defeated  Kim Yu-na was besieged by korean on twitter!

Any Korean here? Could you tell where this unbelievable pride comes from? Mordern korean culture or history?

Unbelievable pride? Ummm... I wouldn't necessarily say that's the nature of society but nationalism is very popular in Far East Asia just as nationalism was critically important in Europe back then... I'd say more so as the Far East Asian powers now can afford to look outside of their domestic playground and project their influence outwards. Unlike in the past, they have the time, resource and money to afford playing the geopolitical game. 

It puzzles the western people because their culture heavily emphasize the ideas and values of individuality whereas in many parts of Asia, social community is the counterpart in our culture. That's how they were raised and cultured. (With growing number of Asian diaspora coming back to live/visit, they are becoming less xenophobic about foreign cultures).

I'd say let the westerners make analogy that best fits their mindsets. Really understanding a country is not something that can be summarized by a simple analogy... mostly.
