Amid heightened hopes of mending ties between Korea and Japan it seems a majority of Koreans believe there is more to be done to fully settle historical issues dividing the two sides. A survey conducted by Japanese TV network TBS on 500 citizens from both countries shows more than 90 percent of Koreans believe issues long disputed between the two have yet to be resolved. Among Japanese, only 44 percent believe that issues remain.
The figures point to vastly differing perceptions on issues like Japan’s wartime atrocities and its claims to Korea’s easternmost islets of Dokdo.
