The North Korean Football Star Born and Raised in Japan (2010)

  • Опубликовано: 15 июл 2016
  • Bend It Like Jong (2010): He proudly represented North Korea in the world cup. Yet Jong Tae Se was born and raised in Japan. He represents a 600 000 strong community of North Korean descendants for whom Kim Jong-Un can do no wrong.

    "I respect Kim Jong-il absolutely", the football star proudly states. But Jong has never known the true horrors of life under his revered leader. He is one of thousands of Korean descendants living in urban modernity in Japan, educated at North Korean funded schools with a strictly Kim-friendly syllabus. "We teach that he is the highest leader of modern North Korea", the headmaster of one such school says. Standing in contrast to this adoration however there are many Koreans in Japan who returned to North Korea to find only pain and death. Li Sang Bong knew as soon he stepped off the boat that the place advertised "as paradise on Earth was a downright lie". For those who have survived the horrors of the prison-like country, it is a "heartless place" and Jong is nothing more than a symbol of sadness.

    Usually people who live outside their country are more patriotic that those inside the country. No matter where you're from and how good you are at speaking the language of the country you immigrate to,be it a forceful immigration or not,as a fir generation migrant you are going to be singled out and pointed at by the native people of that country,you will never truely be a member of their society, thus this type of patriotism is somehow a reaction to the stress and tension they go through their whole life. The reaction is just as strong as the discrimination they recieve. Japan is an EXTREMELY racist country specially to the Zainchi koreans and thus the reaction of thos N koreans is going to be just as strong. The N korean players from N korea did not cry or get emotional but the korean dude from japan did.

    If I was a crazy dictator I would send families to good countries to be educated and semi intelligent and healthy so that when I start my war I'll have a battalion of sympathizers who won't ever know how ignorant they really are. Japan shouldn't deport them but force a vacation on them so they can truly experience what they love so much.

    When I look at these North Korean supporters in Japan, it kind of gives me an idea how Korea can reunify. The main reason why they cannot reunify is because North Korea tries to isolate its people from the outside world so that they will be blinded from the wealth of the outside world. However, these North Korean supporters in Japan know well about the wealth and prosperity of the world of course, but they still support NK. It will be because of the hard rooted ideology in their minds.
    Wouldn't this mean that there are ways in which NK can protect its regime even if they open their country a bit and let their people learn about the outside world? If they can somehow train and educate their people in the same way as the North Korean supporters in Japan got educated - knowing about the wealth of the world outside of NK but still supporting NK in their minds - then I think their regime can somehow be protected and continue without isolating their people like now. I think they should really go forward with their effort to open their country bit by bit by following the North Korean supporters in Japan as their model.

    They don't have food maybe because of sanctions to make them coke cola consumers and Microfucked. Until MacUs and Kuntucky Fucked food is the norm for North Korea Then maybe kim dumd ung will be acceptable to the elite in the us. And the elite will not be able to use the us military force to force the will of the business enteritis on the rest of the world.
    North Korea knows any attack on anyone will be suicide and want total solvency. And not to be subjects to the US. Good on them. If the whole world jumped the US, it wouldn't be the most powerful nation in the world but the smallest. The End of the Roman Empire. AGAIN.

    Hey if the people are happy and in Japan about Nth Korea, then nothing for anyone else to say. If they don't want American bushiness ruling the country and politics for them. Then fuck America, Cokacola, MicroCia (Soft) and others like them. Fuck America, those kids are patriots. If it is as evil as the US government want us to believe then it will implode in its own time.

    These Zainichi Koreans are mostly decent of South Koreans from Jeju Island. I heard 90% of them are the South Korean descendants. So, it’s hard to understand some of them chose to go to Korean Schools all their life. And those schools are North Korean Schools supported by North Korea. People who went to Korean schools are normally brainwashed.

    The Legal and Lawful 1932 Borders of Manchuria should be Reinforced by a Combined Army of North Korean, South Korean, Japanese, Manchurian and Soviet Army and the Sovereignty of Manchuria Secured. An Autonomous Manchuria would facilitate the Reunification of the Korean Peninsula. The One Korea will restore Peace to the Region.
    Commerce between North and South Korea should begin immediately in order to Reunite the People of Korea.
    The Two State Solution has never worked. The Two State Solution did not work for the Union and the Confederacy during the American civil war. The Two State Solution did not work for East and West Germany. The Two State Solution did work for North and South Vietnam. The Two State Solution is not working for Israel and Palestine and the Two State Solution is not working for North and South Korea. It never works for long.

    @18:23 "Supporting Korean schools is the same thing as supporting North Koreans"

    UGH it doesn't have to be. There is more then just North Korea, the only reason they fell into that side is because from the split there families lived there prior so family ties PLUS they kept being rejected by the ethnic* majority of the society which they* lived and continue to live apart of.

    SOO... lets not JUST blame NK (bleh..) for this one, cause pointing a finger means there are 3 pointing right back at you.

If i was proud of my government then i'd go back. They know if they go back, they wouldn't have the same prosperous lives as they're having in Japan. What a bunch of BS!! You're in someone else's country...embrace their education, culture... or get out!!!

    As despicable as it is to hear of ethnic Koreans identifying with North Korea, this is what happens when people are forcibly taken from their home as de facto slaves. There are similarities, of course, to the descendants of those taken as slaves in the U.S. That isn't the case with those who later came to the States voluntarily from Africa.

      You can tell the difference with hair texture, jaw shape, and eye shape. Koreans tend to had squarer jaws and wavier hair (not always) while Japanese have pointier faces. Since skin color and hair color are similar, you go by other features to tell people apart. It's subtle but not invisible. You can tell White people apart by hair color and skin color as well. Mediterraneans vs Nordics, Ashkenazi Jews vs non-Jews etc etc
