Solution to Canada's woes:
Sink PEI ferry ????? PM resigns Profit
South Korea's suffering from shared guilt, and there's apparently a bunch of assholes over there that are either unsympathetic (at best) or are exploiting the situation to cause further pain (at worst).
I can't say I totally understand it either, except that maybe they truly see the entire nation as a unified community.
It just seems like the PM should have taken the criticism (well, some people like you said are just being assholes), jotted it down, and said "Hey guys Imma go change some shit so this crap doesn't happen again", then everyone would be like "wooooo! yeah thanks man!". Resigning doesn't solve anything. I dunno, it's another country and I can't completely understand how they see it.
