China is Enthusiastic about Korean Culture

China is Enthusiastic about Korean Culture


The world’s richest nation used to be Britain.
However, America had continued to be the most powerful nation since 1872.
On the other hand, China has been the most powerful country since 2014.
In 2014, 5 years ahead of 2019 that IMF initially expected,
China’s GDP officially surpassed that of the U.S.
As the U.S. beat Britain became the greatest economic power in 1872,
it has now left its 142 years of glory to the past.
China is the closest country from Korea.
For the past 10 years, China has been swiped by
Korean culture (movies, music, dramas, etc).
Recently, a new Chinese movie called “The Heirs from the Star,” which is a mix of
two Korean dramas “My Love from the Star” and “The Heirs,” is
expected to be released soon.






Even though Chinese people do not know who Justin Bieber or Maroon 5 is,
they know Super Junior (a Korean boy group).
Even though Chinese people do not watch
American dramas “Friends” and “Sex and the City” on TV,
they watch Korean dramas “My Love from the Star” and “The Heirs.”
China is closer to and is more enthusiastic about
Korean culture than American culture.
Do you know of Super Junior’s songs?
Reflect back on whether you are only exposed to the
culture of a backwater country, the U.S

There are not many days left till you will be looked down or have to do
blue collar jobs just because you are from the U.S. and your skin is white.
Poor whites who only know how to speak English,

learn Chinese. Do the work ordered by Asians. Then you can succeed.

Full Korea, Information on Korea for Foreigners

Full Korea, Information on Korea for Foreigners


The following is the visitor history of Full Korea’s English blog (www.fullkorea.com).
It is based on a week, from October 13, 2014 to October 20, 2014.

Full Korea criticizes English-speaking countries
who undervalue Asian culture just because they are whites.
Full Korea also encourages them to remember that
Samsung and LG, and Psy’s Gangnam Style
are the true pictures of Korea, instead of only remembering the
excellence of Asian economics,
viewing the Nazi flag and the Rising Sun flag as the same,
and North Korea’s poverty and nuclear problem.






The majority of visitors to Full Korea is mostly from the U.S. and France.
Korea is not even in the ranking.
Information on Korea from English-speaking countries.
Instead of always being nice and kind,
we will propagate better contents to overseas
in order to awaken their lack of knowledge and ignorance.
Full Korea. We hope it helps Koreans become more confident in the world.

Maybe they have already gained confidence.


Korea and Japan, and an island in the middle

Korea and Japan, and an island in the middle


Korea and Japan are close.




Korea used to be Japan’s colony.
Korea’s economic level is now similar to that of Japan.
Nowadays Japan is evaluated to be poorer than Korea.2002
Korea and Japan are a bit special.
They are the only countries to have co-hosted World Cup in its history.





There is an island in the middle, between Korea and Japan.

Korea says: the island’s name is and is a Korean territory.
Japan says: the island’s name is and is a Japanese territory.
Two countries are having a battle of nerves over the same island.

As the U.S. army and police protect the U.S. territory,
the Korean army and police protect the island.
Japan argues that it is an “illegal occupation,” but there is
no historical evidence to that “illegal occupation.”
Rather, many historical documents prove that Dokdo is a Korean territory,
And Japan has started to call it since just 2005.

I hope you, the reader of this post, remembers.
Ever since the humanity started using languages, the island has been
Inhabited, governed, and administered by Korean people.
Its name has also been Korean, , and it has been called .
However, only Japan has been changing its name since 2005.
Would its rubbish trick really be acceptable in the international society?
