Chen Yiming: Peninsular Character, Confucian Civilization

From The Southern Weekend (in Chinese), translated by Adrian Lu, via Press Interpreter:

Korean people have a hatred in their hearts, a hatred so thick that it can not be dissolved. One of ’s new tasks is figuring out how to transform this hatred into optimism and open-mindedness.

What are the Korean people’s cultural mentality, methods of action, and civil character in general terms? To answer these questions, we interviewed three Korean academics.

The impatient peninsular character

Commenting on the intense actions of some of his compatriots, Mr. Shen Rongshu said, “There really is no other way; this is how Korean people react when facing crises. Especially when facing large countries, since Korea is relatively small and weak, your run-of-the-mill protests will receive no attention.” His tone of speaking reflected his complicated feelings on the issue.
