Surfing around the Net, I noticed that a lot of South Koreans have been expressing regret over Psy-Cho’s murderous rampage and that the Ambassador to the U.S., Mr. Lee Tae Shik, even went as far as to apologize for the bastard’s actions, calling for Koreans to “repent” and proposing a 32 day fast to “prove the worth of the Korean community.”

Mr. Ambassador, I appreciate the intent behind your apology very much. Very much indeed, but I’m afraid that I cannot accept it. No sir, I will not accept it.

Because neither you, nor any other Korean on this planet, owe me or anybody else one.

You share no responsibility for that Hellspawn’s actions, and the fact that Satan let that instrument of his evil be born in your native country doesn’t change that one little bit.

So please, stop apologizing.

You have nothing to apologize for.

Thatisall.

    Matter of honour, Misha.Two Koreans at my work expressed the same horror and feelings.

    He has sullied their honour..theirs is an ancient culture and personal responsibility is a major facet of tho they are.

    That one of their own would do this to an ally that has stood with them on the DMZ is another factor..I agree that they are not responsible in any way.

    Mr Ambassador: I accept your apology, sir, and ask that you put this behind you.

    Yours the honour, Mr Ambassador…and yours the grace.

    I understand, Brendan, but it leaves us at a sort of cultural impasse. Because to me, to accept it would be to suggest that I’m owed one which is an insult to him in my book, not to mention that I would be taking what I am not owed.

    But I do appreciate his honorable and noble intent very much, and his condolences and sympathy even more.

    I can see where Misha is coming from, but in a culture of national, familial and personal responsbility that little Hellspawn was -their- problem as well as ours.

    Which when you consider it says something very important about the South Korean people. When they’ll take public and govermental ownership of a problem they had, at best a marginal involvement in creating (he was of their people by birth, that’s all).

    Our ‘leaders’ of course can barely take responsibility for their own criminal misdeeds, sexual misadventures and infidelities, lies and especially any failings (Brady Bunch, I’m looking at you) that might have led up to this tragedy.

    Sometimes I wonder if the rot can sink any deeper….. Especially when given this sort of example.

    Poor bastards…

    Their culture compels them to offer us an apology our culture demands that we disavow the necessity of- or at least it used to.

    One of my fish purveyors is Korean, and tried to express his sorrow and apologize to me on behalf of his people, and all I could do was throw my arm around his shoulder and tell him I was sorry, too. I loathe being hugged or otherwise forced into any show of affection by a relative stranger, but I like this guy and wanted him to know that he (and Koreans in general) doesn’t owe us anything other than that which is owed between any two friends- a hand in friendship, and a shoulder to lean on in a trying time. We would do the same.

    That monster was no more a “Korean” than he was a member of the human race.

    It is the Korean sense of honor and duty that requires them to apologize for the actions of a Korean nutjob.

    It is the Korean sense of honor and duty that makes South Koreans staunch allies of the United States.

    It is Christian grace that makes us feel awkward when someone apologizes for something they had nothing to do with.

    It is Christian grace that makes the United States worthy of being South Korea’s ally.

    The statements aren’t unconnected.

    Accept their apology, and console them on the injury they have suffered. Korean honor makes them feel as if they’ve just betrayed their closest ally. It was a Korean who murdered the people at Virginia Tech. It had Korean parents. Those parents failed in their efforts to raise a child who understood Korean honor. That is not my opinion on it. It’s theirs. It shot up the campus because it was evil. Its parents are NOT at fault, nor are any other Koreans at fault. THEY don’t see it that way, though.

    This is one time when ‘multiculturalism’ almost applies. It’s Korean culture. Accept the apology, and then, reassure them. You’ll feel better if you do, and so will they.

    My feelings exactly. Respecting a tradition that is good from another culture can’t hurt. We don’t have to completely agree or understand it, but if it helps to “save face” with them and does me no harm, I can think of no reason to reject their apology.

    Korea is a homogeneous country, like Japan, and they think that the actions of one, is a reflection on all. Unlike us, who believe each individual is responsible for their own actions.

    I say “I accept your apology, but it really wasn’t necessary”.

    When I was a student, I had a Korean professor.He would address his students as Miss Smith, Mrs. Wilson, Mr. Jones…never by a first name. I suspect it was a respect thing.

    The few Korean students I’ve had over the years have been wonderful. Quiet, hard-working, very polite. They never gave me a MOMENT’S trouble, unlike my American students.

    I was on my way home, and met with three Korean students who seemed lost.They had a map that was upside down.

    They pointed at the map and I turned it the other way, showed them where they were,…and they were mortified when they realised their elementary mistake.

    I helped them with directions, and knowing a little of Oriental manners, said goodbye in Korean and bowed to them. They lined up, and solemnly bowed back to me..the older seemed so embarrassed.

    And more than a little pleased that I knew a few words of their language. What can I say…we Aussies are kind to our guests.

    That’s why they come back.

    At the risk of sounding flippant I have to relate a humorous story about a Korean lady that I was introduced to last year.

    “Jo” is one of my mother-in-law’s best friends. She’s Korean and a very sweet lady.

    One weekend last year she and MIL came out for a weekend of gambling in the casinos for “just the girls”. They invited me over for lunch at one of the casino buffets, which happened to be that day, “all you can eat” seafood.
    Jo comes to the table with three plates. One has plain steamed rice and steamed veggies. One is piled massively high with boiled shrimp, while the other is piled just as high with steamed King Crab legs.

    Jo grabs her fork and in the blink of an eye unzips a crab leg and extracts the meat whole and immediately tosses it over onto my MIL’s plate. Before the meat landed she had another crab leg in her hand and like before..zzziiiip..plop….right onto my plate. This continued on until the plate was full of empty crab leg shells and our plates were piled high with crab meat (along with the other food we had gotten). We of course are thanking her this entire time and requesting that she go ahead and eat her own lunch.
    She get’s up…grabs ANOTHER plate of crab legs and sits down and does the same thing. Our conversation began to sound like this:

    blah blah blah…zzziiiiip…plop..”Thank you Jo but you really don’t have to do that” blah blah blah..zzzziiipp..plop…”Jo..really…you need to eat your own lunch now!”…zzziiiiip…plop..”JO I have plenty on my plate now, really I do!!…zzziiiiip…plop….*sigh*…..”Thank you Jo”.

    Only until she was assured repeatedly that we had more crab than either of us could eat, did she start eating her own lunch, which by this time was already cold.

    Every Korean I have ever met has had the same selfless attitude as Jo. I know they all feel shame for what happened here this week whether we think otherwise or not.

    Dad works as a gatekeeper for a secure university residence hall here and each year he sees a hugely diverse mix of nationalities in the students. Of all the variations, it’s the locals and Irish lads that are the most rowdy, the Arabic and/or Muslim students that are always pissed up, smashed on weed, or setting the smoke alarms off in their halls cooking up bacon toasties in the middle of the night and the Chinese, Korean or Japanese students who are the most impeccably mannered and gentle natured.

    It’s the far Eastern students Dad has the most time for and they’re constantly bringing him little gifts of appreciation and thank you cards for even the trivial, little things he does for them. Dad’s as cynical as a man can get at 62 years of age, but he swears these are the loveliest kids you could meet.

    I have a friend at college who hails from S. Korea, Jing. He apologized to me for Cho and the ensuing conversation went something like this…

    Jing: So Zucca, I apologize on behalf of Mr. Cho and all of my people…

    Zucca: Hey, Jing… Listen buddy, if you feel responsible, in any way, for what happened to those people at Virgina U., then I accept the apology. But, if in your heart of hearts, you know you had no hand in this tragedy, then I cannot accept it.

    Jing: I understand. Thank you for giving it actual thought. Most people I’ve extended apology to just bob their heads and say ‘Yeeah.’

    I felt a whole lot better after that conversation. And Jing and I are still friends. ^_^

    The note that S.Koreans’ cultural sense of honor is at issue here is significant. I’d also caution against too much sympathy in that a substantial strain of anti-American sentiment has arisen in Korea and has been tolerated, if not fostered by its government and media. Like Europe, some in their recent generations have little or no memory of or appreciation for the fact that U.S. soldiers’ blood secured their liberty. That said, the fact that there is shame among many S.Koreans about this suggests there is real honor and friendship there that should be nurtured and respected.
