동해 – mar del este (East Sea)

noviembre 12, 2009

동해 significa mar del este y es el nombre del mar que separa Corea y Japon. Actualmente en muchos mapas en lugar de eso aparece Mar de Japon pero el nombre correcto es Mar del este. Desde antes del Cristo Mar del Este ha sido el nombre de ese mar. Pero durante la ocupacion de Corea por Japon, Japon cambío el nombre a Mar de Japon. Actualmente el nombre está disputado. Si se ve algun mapa que tiene el nombre Mar de Japon en lugar de Mar del este, por favor, escribanles y les digan que cambien el nombre a Mar del Este o que tambien incluyen el nombre Mar del Este.

Dear all of geographers

To whoever it may concern:

Recently I visited your website, and was quite surprised to find your maps of Korea and Japan
still describe Korea’s ‘East Sea’ as ‘Sea of Japan,’ which is incorrect.

Such an error in a well known website as yours comes as a surprise since we regard you as one of the world’s best.

Using a proper name for the body of water between the Korean peninsula and the Japanese archipelago is not simply a question of changing the name of a geographical feature.

It is rather a part of national effort by the Korean people to erase the legacy of Japanese Imperialism and to redress the unfairness that has resulted from it. It is an absolutely mistaken thing to hear one side of story and follow. If we let this kind of things alone, it brings about a serious problem to disturb order of International society.

For your reference, the world’s largest commercial mapmaker, National Geographic, worldatlas.com,
and the travel guidebook, Lonely Planet Publication promised us that they would now use the name ‘East Sea.’ In addition, National Geographic and Lonely Planet are already using the name,
‘East Sea’ in their website after we pointed out the error.

As a member of VANK, I urge you to use ‘East Sea’ to describe the body of water in question or both Korean and Japanese designation simultaneously (e.g. ‘East Sea/Sea of Japan’) in all your documents and atlases.

Once Korea and Japan agree on a common designation, which is in accord with the general rule of international cartography, we can then follow the agreed-on designation.

We would be grateful for your explanation.

Yours very truly,

고려사람 Koryo saram – coreanos que viven en los paises del ex Union Sovietica

noviembre 11, 2009

Los coreanos que viven en Rusia y otros paises de ex Union Sovietica son Koryo saram (고려사람) y hay aproximadamente 500,000 de ellos. Hay 150,000 gente de origen coreano en Rusia; la mayoria ha vivido alli por generaciones. Muchos vivian en Vladivostok ya que esta muy cerca de Corea pero entre 1937 y 1939, Stalin deporto a 200,000 coreanos a Uzbekistan y Kazakhstan. 100,000 coreanos murieron del frio, de hambre o enfermedad antes de llegar a Asia Central. Ademas como el idioma coreano estaba prohibido por decadas, ahora muchos no pueden hablar coreano. Ahora hay 200,000 en Uzbekistan, y 105,000 en Kazakhstan.

Hay una pelicula sobre Koryo saram pero en ingles.
