Before you go all nuts and all, but what if Japanese still held onto Korea (the whole peninsula not just the South)?


I find that there are few countries who are more similar in culture and language than these two. If they could get over the atrocities from the Japanese, economically it would be a behemoth? Think of the possibilities and benefits:


- Both share a common culture (mostly imported from China or in Japan's case, Korea + China).
- Language is very similar and again, most foreign words are either from Chinese or English.
- Economically, would be a mighty unit, producing middle to high end goods, could quell China and stand up better to the USA.
- Japan can free itself from the lower value chain of electronics these days and focus on lucrative markets such as energy, aviation, defense products whilst Korea can focus on what Japan was dominating in 10 years ago - cars, electronics, whitegoods etc.
- Hangul can be used as the official script removing the need for Kanji and other systems (Hirigana, Romanji and Katakana) which is a massive mess to begin with anyway. Words would be based on the Japanese pronunciations and also the grammar (easier than Korean).
- Country would be a combined size of 500,000m2 - Japan 300m2 and Korea 200m2. The current North Korean part would provide both South Korea and Japan with more space.
- The only real problem is still, there would be a lack of agricultural land.

If you remove the current WW2 issues, comfort women and all, Japan and Korea uniting could honestly reap a lot of benefits. Could this possible have happened before the Japanese atrocities?

It's like asking India and Pakistan to unite. Urdu and Hindi are basically the same language though.

Seriously, I wish the US had these crime rates for our foreigners living in our country, both legally and illegally.

You've been severely misinformed if you believe that. Just one comparison, the area in Fukushima will be uninhabitable for another 20 to 30 years while Chernobyl will be uninhabitable for another 20,000 years. Try spending some quality time doing research through non-fictional resources and then get back with us on it.
