JAPANCASTING with Steve McCarty


Episode 13: South Korea and Japan Peace Dialogue -Prof. Steve McCarty

Osaka Jogakuin College first year students perform a 4-minute dramatic role play they created for the annual Peace Dialogue Contest. They speak a little Japanese and Korean as well as English, and show lively Osaka personalities. They try to overcome historical conflicts between Japan and South Korea that are still problems today. They discuss politicians visiting the Yasukuni Shinto shrine in Tokyo, which honors Japan’s soldiers before and during World War 2. They also try to reconcile a dispute over an island called Dokdo in Korean and Takeshima in Japanese.Script, with Korean words written phonetically in Japanese or Romanized on the Blog -
