I won't go into detail but the sand and cactus thing and the thing with nomads is just sad. Iran is home to one of the worlds oldest civilizations and was once one of the worlds largest empires in difference to tiny Korea, and is not sand and cactus in difference to the Arabs. Iran has everything from mountains to lush forests, but I won't go into detail on that.

And yes the oil thing is more or less true, but same goes for Korea, if you didn't have all that economic aid from the US you would end up like North Korea.

And yes I am obsessed with Japan lol, but that's not the reason I wrote that. Once again I was making fun of Japanese Nationalists which I saw when I watched Japanese TV, hence "TV Tokyo". But then you came and went all furious about it

And yes the US helped Korea because Japan was against them and refused to get colonializated by some power-hungry EMPIRE (The US empire which extends pretty much throughout the world. Sadly it seems that countries refusing to bow for such hegemonic powers have to face the consequences. I know that the leaders of my country aren't the best, but atleast they aren't lapdogs like LEE MYUNG-BAK, the N1# western KOREAN puppet in the world.

Also Korea did actually steal much of Japans culture, may I have an answer to why Korean culture aspects like K-Pop firstly started to make it big when Korea finally lifted the ban on Japanese imports in 2004?

Iran has its own culture and doesn't need any western influences. Why do you think western companies funnel thousands of dollars into Korean industries instead of aiming for other countries?

Oh well, I actually enjoy this discussion pretty much. Please go on lol, as long as the moderators don't mind us argumenting. Else they can just move the thread to the appropiate section. And please no more flaming

Well you are being disrespectful to every Korean, and saying you are not trolling. Mentioning other country as 'tiny' and your country as 'bigger' is just simply an act of ignorance. Korea has reasonable economic power and it is one of the largest trading countries in the world which cannot be looked down by any other countries. I am not trying to say Korea is the best or whatnot but at least it is not at the 'level' to be ignored by someone else in the world.

US aid did not really help and infact Korea did not receive much aid from U.S if you know what economics is all about. You should read journals about U.S aid on South Korean economy and all that. Stop comparing Korea with Japan. Japan has its own uniqueness and Korea has that too. Korea's civilization is older if you know the history so your argument making that Korea was influced by Japan is totally wrong. I can understand that through colonization Japan did affect Korea but nothing more than that. Any historical aspects, if you say so, for Korea are definately "Korean". We use language called "Korean" which is one of the unique langauges in the world and we have several UNESCO heritages. Then how can you say it is copy from someone else? It is just that you or other people do not have information about Korea, but that does not mean Korea has no cultural aspect.

Lastly, I guess you think that any country can be successful with U.S aid, but can you name any one country that made success with U.S aid? It seems like you are saying that Iran could have been much more successful if it had aid from U.S. In fact, Korea did import "U.S" capital in form of "loan" mainly. You know, I am not saying U.S is evil but U.S is not that generous Stop writing novel story. They did not help South Korea to go again Japan or something, and why would they do that?? Where is that idea coming from though? Do you think any country will just help other country to revenge other coutries?? Like why?? Do you have evidence from sources or is it just your pure imagination?

Economic policy is not a joke. If you ever read journal about Korean economic policy back in 1960, you will know that. Do not come to Korean forum to start fire or something; you are being so ignorant.

I'm guessing it's you in the pictures (at least the guy seems like the one in your avatar).

Was this just a one night party or a part of an event lasting several days? I'm also interested how much it costs?

Summer is here and can't believe not much Summer pictures are uploaded here and only lots and lots of building pictures (although not a bad thing). Let me post some summer/party scenes of Seoul and its Metropolitan Area (including Gyeongi Province and Incheon City):
