韓国の現実  A reality in Korea is…

楽しい大都市のソウルではこの国が事実的に戦争状態にあるのは忘れやすいです。しかし毎朝テレビ放送開始の6時に見るものが現実を思い出さすのは国歌とその映像です。

韓国人なら泣けてくるような素晴らしい韓国の景色の放送後に永遠に感じる国民を安心ささせるか納得をさせる韓国軍の映像が流れます。しかしこれは事実です。平和ボケしている日本と比べて韓国は戦争状態とあります。若い男性は家族、友達や恋人から離れて徴兵の辛い義務を果たします。二人の息子を持つ母親としては考えると非常に辛いです・・・・

In “fun city Seoul” it is easy to forget that this country is technically at war, however something every morning jolts you back to how it really is……Korean TV commences at 6am after the National Anthem, beautiful scenes of Korean country are screened, if you were Korean you would just want to cry with pride it is so moving, then follows long footage of the mighty Korean national forces. I am guessing this is supposed to provide peace of mind and support for the national cause? But the reality is that this country is different to Japan where young people accept peace for granted and avoid responsibility. Here in Korea young men in the prime of their lives are separated from their family, friends and girlfriend when they are conscripted into the Korean Army for two years.
