Last week, Mark Lippert was slashed by a Korean nationalist.
While he was in hospital, hundreds of Koreans got hyped to apologize the attack.
They almost look insane.
Why are they so extreme?
In Korean sense, the rally was meant to "America must forgive us because we are extremely sorry for him, caring for him."
They don't want to be criticized for "Korean faults" because of their confucianism sense--being pointed out faults means they are inferior which they can't stand.
Another reason is, Koreans are scared of America to be on victim position.
Koreans have a sort of sense like victim can do anything to the offender.
This time, Korean medias emphasized the man was PyongYang loyalist and "we Koreans" were also victims therefore both America and S.Korea can be on the same victim position.
When Korean student Cho Seung Hui shot and killed many students in Va Tech, Korean medias emphasized that Koreans in America were victims of racism or victims of gun society.
When Asiana Air collieded at San Francisco Airport, they blamed Boeing before investigation began.
Getting victim position is very important for them.
