The NYT Does Korea Again! and the bloggerScribblings of the Metropolitician seems to be quite happy to see it.
In a sense, I agree, but in another sense, I have a worry.
In Japan it was Korean Wave that have brought about and spread anti-Korean wave.
Until people came to be informed of Korea, Korea was just one of the countries, the country that produce the delicious Kimchi, and they didnt know Korea was such anti-Japan-ist.
Now it might be the US citizens who will go through the phase some Japanese has experienced.
