The following is a study is a comparison between the educational systems of Japan and Korea. This investigation delves not only into the differences between the educational systems, but addresses the effect of educational foundations on the societal structure of adolescents and their perspectives on Japanese culture.
As the gap in the socioeconomic structure between Korea and Japan continues to narrow, it is not far fetched to conclude that mutual acceptance of both country's cultures has and will continue to grow among the younger generations. In addition, it has been observed that Japanese culture, especially Manga, has been the source of the Hanryu culture explosion in the East Asia region, and after implementing an open policy toward Japanese pop culture, we can see same effect on Animation and Music. To support these contentions the following three studies were conducted.
(1) A study done to observe the change of adolescent and preteen consciousness and activity under President Kim
Dae-jung's policy of openness toward Japanese culture in Seoul, Dejong, and Pusan.
(2) A study in the form of various surveys was conducted regarding the effect of Japanese pop culture on adolescent and preteen opinions of Japanese culture.
(3) A follow-up to the study done on the effect of Japanese pop culture on Korean youth was performed by creating a one day class concerning Japanese pop culture to observe cultural effects on opinion more directly.
During the course of these studies, some interesting new developments were observed. One in particular was the striking similarity between geographic boundaries around the world and the internet. Although the internet may have the potential ability to promote world unity with instantaneous media and access to different cultures, it can be clearly seen that the internet has a rather limited unifying effect. Due to obvious language barriers, the internet can only express media to groups of people of the same nationality,; resulting in an alienation of the rest of the global community. For the scope of this study, it has been revealed that this type of voluntary or involuntary esotericism of the internet ushers in new misunderstandings between Korea and Japan.
Korea and Japan have similar culture. Sharing same culture shows them problems of each society. Sometimes they can hate each other because of that. However, they will be able to improve themselves by pointing out drawbacks each other. Finally, Korea and Japan should make new citizenship based on East Asian culture (not eastern culture) and new educational system together. Less
