Is it really 20,000 years? I've read somewhere that it's as long as 2,000 years. Well, we will all be dead by that time. Just wanna check the facts straight.

South Korea in the Vietnam War is a good starter:
The South Korean forces had 3,800 combat deaths and 41,000 enemies were killed.[1]

They also committed some of the worst war crimes of the war, particularly the Běnh Tai Massacre perpetrated by South Korean Forces on 9 October 1966 of 168 citizens in Binh Tai village in South Vietnam Binh Tai Massacre

During the Vietnam War, South Korea sent troops to aid the anti-communist forces and while establishing their own comfort stations. Initially, South Korean soldiers raped many Vietnamese women then both the South Korean and Vietnamese military began to force Vietnamese women to work in comfort stations.
While Korea/Koreans have been demanding Japan to apologize, but they don't to apologize for what they did in Vietnam.

Why Has South Korea Still Not Apologized to the Vietnam Comfort Women?
This year, at the 96th anniversary of the Korean uprising against Japan in March 1, 1919, South Korean President Park Geun-hye reiterated her call for Japan to admit to the war crimes it had committed during World War Two. Yet, even as she relentlessly seeks an apology from Japan, Ms. Park has conveniently ignored the fact that during the Vietnam War, Korean troops raped, assaulted and barbarically slaughtered thousands of Vietnam comfort women.

Vietnam War Rape and Assault Victims Call for Apology from Korean President Park Geun-hye
"We write you today because we fear that our stories will be forgotten. Decades have passed without a formal apology, acknowledgement, or reparations from your Government. Even so, the Government of Vietnam recently signed a trade agreement between our two countries, binding our futures while ignoring our shared painful past," their letter stated.

"We and our sisters across the country, and our thousands of children and grandchildren face many challenges today, including in securing an education and finding work, and receiving the support of basic social services. Our experiences and struggles have been rejected for more than four decades by the people and government of Korea."

"We survivors and Lai Dai Han also want to look ahead. While we are old, we want to have hope for the futures of children and grandchildren. We urge you to issue a sincere and deep apology for the crimes committed against us and our families and to consider reparations for the decades of hardship we have faced. With that, we wish to move forward with the dignity of recognition, and the support of those in a position to take responsibility."

From all the research I've done on line, it's 20,000 years. The area is in danger again because the building that they built to contain the plant is now deteriorating. They are in the process of building another containment building to encase the entire plant again. I'm not sure how accurate Wikipedia is but look up the disaster on that site and you can spend hours and hours reading about the magnitude of the incident, the extent of work involved in dealing with it and how many people have died since. One example is all the children born with severe deformities from that area right after the incident. Japan doesn't seem to have the same magnitude in any of these categories or others. In regards to the Japanese incident, some even get confused and add the casualties of the earthquake and tsunami in with the power plant incident casualties. The fact is the power plant incident alone yielded very few casualties/fatalities.

Some buzz words to look up in the link below are: Liquidators and The Exclusion Zone

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chernobyl_disaster

I spent literally hours reading about this incident. It's incredible. Read about the first responders (firemen). About the cameramen who first took pictures of the incident and one who took internal pictures of the plant and died only hours later from radiation. About the liquidators and how many of them died.

And below is a very in depth documentary of the Chernobyl disaster worth watching closely:

So they can't just clean it up? The radiation will just persist?

Both Korea and Japan are different from China. An East Asian who bow to you is most likely a Korean or a Japanese and highly unlikely a Chinese. And they do not look like Chinese. There are a lot of differences between the 3 major East Asian countries.

I am not suprised if you think they are similiar if you are using Asian Americans as examples.

Korean and Japanese languages have a larger differences than the difference between Mandarin and Cantonese, both are descended from old Chinese. Korean and Japanese are not descended from Chinese language.

The two languages are not the same, even if they are both agglutinating SOV languages with, really, a lot of similarities. One isn't just the other with new pronunciation. The languages are more different than, say, Mandarin and Cantonese (which also aren't the same, obviously).

None of this has anything at all to do with Korean-Japanese relations.

Just google "Japanese occupation of Korea" and you'll see why the idea of a united Korea and Japan would be resisted by Koreans. From the assassination of Korean royalty by the Japanese, Koreans being forced to surrender their Korean family names and adopt Japanese surnames, forced labor in Japanese factories (and estimated 10% of the victims of the atomic bombs in Japan were Korean) and the Comfort Women atrocities, Korean has a lot of reasons to never want to be a part of Japan in any way.

North Korea seems to be doing great not being under Japanese rule.
