Wow - someone's finally doing good work on this, while I was too lazy. An undergraduate had once taken the bait of my suggestion for someone to do a final seminar paper on Stephens (whose name had slipped my mind in my slew of recent posting), since the "terrorist" acts of Korean nationalists during more radical times seem to have received real little treatment. But, alas, he chose to go for an easier topic; so I still think it worthy of a good seminar paper.
I'm glad Gusts of Popular Feeling has picked up the ball and done some thorough Internet sleuthing, as well as connecting of some cool historical dots.
Still, I think the visual connection implied by the picture of Cho-you-know at the end of their post is akin to lobbing a Molotov cocktail with a nitro twist into the dragon's lair of extreme Korean netizenry.
So, as they said on that old In Living Color skit, "I ain't goin' touch it."
But I'll link to it.
