Should Korea apoogize for its involovement with the Imperial Japan like Aurstia?

Austria, combined with Germany at the wartime, has accepted to be as a loser of the WW2, and apologized to their victims.
But Korea have refused to be a loser of that war while there were at least 6 Korean lawmakers of Japanese Parliament, a Korean vice admiral, many Korean commissioned officers and soldiers of Japanese army at WW2. What’s more, the current South Korean government and Army directly took over from the governor-general of Korea and Korean units of the former Imperial Japanese Army.

Did Aursria apoligize?

February 14, 2000: Austrian politician Joerg Haider apologizes for giving offense by praising Hitler's employment policies and former members of the Waffen SS

April 7, 2000: The Austrian government apologizes for having provided a political haven to former Nazis after World War II.

April 29, 2002: Austria apologizes for a clinic at Am Spiegelgrund in which 789 mentally handicapped children were subjected to medical experiments and murder during the Nazi regime.Political Apologies: Chronological List

That is better than none.

The problem is how much Korean people were involoved with Japanese military.
