History is written by winners and GHQ(usa force occupying japan) influenced koreans and japanese to teach distorted history to make it easier for usa to control using divide and conquer technique. Theme was bad japanese enslaved koreans who were saved by americans. Media was also controlled in japan and nothing negative about allies(and korea) was to be taught or reported. It was similar to communist media control of china today. Mean while rape,atrocity etc. of usa/korea/china were not taught. Even today, japanese media is somewhat anti-japanese.
GHQ gave koreans allied status which gave them immunity from japanese law. Lawlessness occurred (worse than mexican gang situation today.) Organized koreans killed, raped, looted, and even raided police station. Part of reason japanese yakuza still have power is due to fact japanese yakuza fought these korean criminals thus became hero to some towns.
Taiwan contributed $200m to fukushima and very friendly to japan partly due to fact that it knows japan modernized taiwan and it was not that bad. Between qing, west, roc, prc, and japan, top choice is japan.
