Yes, yes and they closed down the SK business operations for a while now didn't they.

I know they doing fine in North Korea. Be aware of outsider propaganda used to influence those that wish to overcome the regime. Of course it will never happen. There are great plans for America and for its people, considering the pain there respective government has created on so many other people worldwide...and for what end?
Overseas Korean Nationals
The Korean nationals in Japan and other countries comprise those Koreans who were forcibly taken to Japan as labour draftees, conscripts, etc. or who drifted abroad in search of livelihood in the years of Japanese imperialist colonial rule and their descendants.
As stateless people, they were long subjected to national discrimination, deprivation of rights and destitution in alien lands. The Government of the DPRK instituted the law of nationality to provide all overseas Korean nationals with the legal status of citizens of the Republic and took a number of measures for their protection.
Today all overseas Korean nationals are striving for the reunification and prosperity of the country with a high sense of national pride and self-respect.
The General Association of Korean Residents in Japan
The General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chongryon) was formed on May 25, Juche 44 (1955).
Chongryon, a powerful organization of overseas citizens of the DPRK, has a close-knit system of organization, from the Central Standing Committee down to the local prefectural headquarters, chapters and branches. It has under its wing many organizations involving all sections of society youth, women, traders and industrialists, educators, men of culture and religious men. It also has its own mass media, publishing houses, news agency, scientific, art and sports organizations and economic and trade organs.
Chongryon publishes scores of periodicals and also translates the works of President Kim II Sung and Comrade Kim Jong II and other books, and newspapers into several languages for distribution to different countries and regions throughout the world.
It has set up a well-organized educational system ranging from kindergarten to university to provide a democratic, national education for tens of thousands of sons and daughters of Koreans in Japan at hundreds of schools at all levels.

I know you are at your jocular best, Red Robber. We all appreciate your amusing contributions to o ...
That's one of the most tired pieces of western propaganda in your little handbook.
The Chinese lifted themselves out of poverty.
Are you trying to say that western capitalist charity was responsible? :lol

In what way is your reply relevant to the topic: "American atrocities"???
And in what way is that ...
My post was in answer to your inane comment about communism.... if you kept to the subject and listed some American atrocities, then none of this would have happened. ;P
On December 7, 1941, men in the Japanese military committed murder against men in the American military at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Hatred against those of Japanese descent increased. The commander of the Pacific forces, Admiral William F. Halsey, said to a press conference in 1944, "The only good Jap is a Jap who's been dead six months." He added, "When we get to Tokyo ... we'll have a little celebration where Tokyo was." Halsey's motto was, "Kill Japs, kill Japs, kill more Japs!"
The American military began firebombing cities in Japan, including Tokyo, in February of 1945. Firebombing was a tactic in which clusters of incendiary bombs created a firestorm in which the air above the bombed area became extremely hot and rose rapidly, while cold air rushed in from ground level, creating vortices in which the victims were literally sucked into the fire. In the firebombing of Dresden, Germany (in which the U.S. military took part), a woman witnessed a baby being sucked out of her mother's arms and into the fire.
The firebombings were obviously intended to wipe out significant parts of the civilian population in a city and to create terror. Tokyo was a particularly susceptible target because the city was made almost totally of wood. The fires were so hot that the clothing on individuals was actually ignited by the heat as they were running away. Many of the women were wearing turbans around their heads, and the heat ignited the turbans, totally consuming the heads of the women.
But there were some cities that were spared from firebombing - for a treacherous reason. Secretary of War Henry Stimson wrote the following regarding his conversation with President Harry Truman on June 6, 1945: "... I was a little fearful that before we could get ready, the Air Force might have Japan so thoroughly bombed out that the new weapon would not have a fair background to show its strength. He laughed and said he understood." This "new weapon" was the atomic bomb. Some cities were left unbombed in order to be potential experiments to determine how devastating the atomic bomb would be.
