September 30, 2010 EA 493 Professor LaCouture Jae Hyun Paik Questions : 1. Why and how did the Anti-Americanism start in South Korea? Is it the insecurity of the all-time presence of the United States, such as the army base? Or, is it the rising of the abundant resources and wealth, along with the absence of living through the horror of the Korean War (and the aftermath) for the younger generations to believe that the backing of the United States is not needed anymore? 2. Is the negative sentiment towards the United States a recent development? 3. When did the term, “Anti-Americanism”, become a popular term in South Korea/the United States? 4. Some sources in the past imply that this phenomenon began after the defeat of the Japanese in World War II. Do you think this trend started from one or two pivotal cases that started the uproar or gradually started from a mild disagreement? Related Cases that could have caused the “Anti-Americanism” : 1. Pre-Korean War (related to the U.S. military) - After the defeat of the Japanese in World War II, the United States set up a self-declared government (United States Army Military Government in Korea). The disagreement began with the supporting of the United States towards the Japanese colonial government. Eventually, they removed the Japanese officials but the U.S. military government did not recognize the South Korean’s own popular-based government, the People’s Republic of Korea. It was censored and later, outlawed by the ruling of the U.S.
