1. [+4,503, -91] We may be living in a better country now but the Philippines helped us during 6.25 and we should be grateful for that. What these netizens did is no different from how the Japanese right-wing groups act. Let's please not bring ourselves down like this.

2. [+1,812, -31] The Korean netizens who caused this need to apologize. Who do you think you are to bring such hate to our entire country like this!!!

3. [+783, -5] Ugh, please stop going to people's YouTubes and Instagrams to leave hate comments. Come on, people.

4. [+644, -13] I really wish Korean netizens would stop leaving thoughtless comments

5. [+521, -12] I actually want to go and find the accounts of those Korean netizens and demand that they apologize. We have no reason to have an ill relationship with the Filipinos but this small group is going to make things awkward now.

6. [+215, -10] I'd like to apologize on behalf of the people who were hating on the Philippines. We are not a country of people who do not remember your sacrifices. I ask that you please understand that this is just a small portion of the people who think this way and that the majority of us Koreans see you as brothers who shed your blood for us. We know that so many of your young men were sent to this foreign land, a land so cold and so hot, to bleed for us. I will make sure that this is remembered not only by our generation but our children and their children too. We thank you again for helping us in the war.

7. [+102, -8] They rightfully deserve an apology. Have we researched anything into the IDs of these Korean accounts that were leaving the hate? There are so many foreigners within our country who have made it a mission to leave online comments to make our country look bad. I think this is worth looking into. We need to create a new law that prohibits foreigners in our country from creating Korean IP accounts.

8. [+82, -4] I can't believe Korean pigs and dogs are tainting our image around the world like this. What happened to our country? Did we ever think that our country would be known as such an embarrassment?

9. [+71, -4] These young people leaving such comments need to sit down and reflect. Just because they're living in a more advanced country doesn't mean they contributed anything to help it that way. What do they know anything about the injustice we suffered at the hands of the Japanese in the 60s and 70s? They were lucky to have been born under parents with such wealth. A genuine apology is needed for this ordeal. As much as we love our children, we need to make sure that they are educated properly on these matters. I suppose instead of blaming this on the generation that caused it, we should be blaming ourselves as the adults for not educating them properly. Let's all reflect on this.

10. [+72, -9] To all of the Filipinos, I am sorry. I promise to take in the sting of your criticism humbly.

11. [+25, -3] How dare those Koreans forget that we were not much better off than the Philippines not too long ago. Please apologize a hundred times over to them.

12. [+22, -1] Our problem is that we react with such blind hatred and anger to seeing anything with 'Japan' in it... and our society encourages that...

13. [+10, -0] Koreans who left those comments!!! Apologize. Your own people will not forgive you. How dare you write any comment putting down the Philippines??
