Why the Bad Feelings?

I was speaking with a young friend recently who came upon some commentary about the bad relations between Korea and Japan.  He wondered what it was about. 

Japan forcibly occupied, colonized Korea for 35 years.  Did Nazi-type concentration camp experiments on Koreans.  Kidnapped young women and made them prostitutes for their soldiers.  Japan's attitude toward Koreans is pretty much like the Nazi view of Jews.

They've officially "apologized."  But they're not really sorry.  You ever notice that people who aren't really sorry "apologize," or are "regretful?"

And they certainly don't act sorry: here's a little glimpse.

Wow, I had no clue that this ever happened. How terrible and sad. Why are humans so horrible sometimes?
