  1. *[Edit: It's a bit disappointing the number of people leaving premature comments who have clearly reacted only to the title or having only watched part way through the video. Many of the points people are mentioning from the Korean side are already brought up in the video. At least watch it through before dropping viscerally-charged comments.]

    Parts of this video may be sensitive to some people, but I tried to keep this as balanced and fair as possible. If you feel I have said something inaccurate in the video, CONSTRUCTIVE feedback is always welcome. And if you disagree with someone in the comments section, there's no need to be aggressive or belittling. Let's keep it civilized! (I know… i tried).

    For those who feel the need to comment on the 'Sea of Japan' labeling of the map in the video, understand the map is obtained off Google Maps (not labelled by us). Additionally, note that the 'Sea of Japan' is the dominant term used in English-speaking countries (as well as in Europe, China & Russia); while 'East Sea' is used primarily in South Korea ('Korean East Sea' in North Korea). With that said, the video makes no claims on what the 'correct' term is.

  2. 이녀석들 슬슬 시작하네. 일본에 호감인 외국인들을 상대로 여론몰이. 한국전쟁으로 특수 누리고 성장했던 일본이 이제는 우리와 터널을 뚫어서 이득을 취해보시겠다? 아니 우리나라가 왜 터널을 연결시켜줘야하지? 우리가 사과받을 일은 산더미지만 빚진건 없는데 말이야? 터널경로도 거제도 두곳과 부산을 상정했지? 그게 지역 이간질용이라는거 알고 있어.(경남vs부산)
    너희는 식민지배 사과나 똑바로 해라.
    사과했다고???? 당한 사람이 이제는 그만해도 된다고 할때까지 하는거야.
    진정성이 없다고.
    나라관계가 정상적일때 하자고해도 고민일 판에.(영어 잘하는 분들이 현실을 모르는 외국인들 잘 계몽시켜주시길)

  3. 무엇보다 한국은 생각도 안하고있는데 일본 혼자 민간과 정부가 드릉드릉하고 앉아있음. 이쪽 일뽕들만 설레고 .. 뭐가 균형적인 의견이란말이지?

  4. No wonder my friend keep saying he uses car from France to England and I keep saying his is lying. I prove myself wrong.

  5. Its not a bad idea but, i think ALOT more time is gonna have to pass before it actually happens, Korea has taken alot of hits from its eastern neighbor there and its even built into the language this visceral animosity towards them. Japan is gonna have alot to prove before there is enough trust for this to work…..

  6. I think the original idea was for the bridge to connect Japan to all of the other mainland Asian countries but now it would only connect Japan to one country due to North Korea being closed off

  7. At last, something the Japanese and the Koreans can agree on; the tunnel project is utterly unnecessary and absurd.

  8. The British and French are still rivals (a bit) but mainly in making fun of each others langauge. (Or is that just the brits?)

  9. Yeah similar but no it's not comparable.
    French and British fought about a millennia ago, also the last major conflict had them be allies against the axis.
    Japan on the other hand was the enemy, they never fully admitted their crime and have been sort of excused because daddy US needed an ally in Asia to fight Russia.

    Their tension is pretty recent (not even a century), it's unfair to compare them as if they were in the same scenario and thus insinuate these countries are just being bitches…

  10. China had proposed an underwater tunnel to South Korea. S. Korea's benefit would be being able to travel and also ship cargo, without cooperation by or deals with North Korea.

    Same principle reason why Finland wants to build an underwater tunnel to Estonia. In that case, the benefit is avoiding Russia. By the way, Russia still claims land from northern Finland going back to World War 2.

    Also, same principle reason why Egypt wants to build not an underwater tunnel, but an oversea bridge, to Saudi Arabia. To avoid Israel.

  11. This reminds me of that one time that the Romans wanted to connect rome a a small island but the Bridge fell

  12. Of course its possible to build a tunnel from Japan to Korea. I've built much larger tunnels in Minecraft before.

  13. Japan do NOT want this stupid tunnel for sure !!

    Plase do not come to Japan forever !!
    We can not trust Korea anymore.

    Please keep promises between countries and obey the international rules.

  14. don't worry guys, this tunnel will never happen and it should stay so. All japanese people i talked to had no idea this project existed. It's a dead project that a military general came up with, but since japan doesn't have a military anymore, the project shouldn't exist either.

  15. Hola, llego un poco tarde desde Argentina, creo ando perdido entre coreanos y japoneses peleando, alguien me explica la peleita?

  16. Who will develop a sea polluted with cesium in Japan? And why do you always make those vedioes that Japanese don't care about and never work?

  17. Nobody on the planet of Earth wants to get connected with Koreans. All Koreans are liars and thieves. In most of Asian countries, South Korean men are banned to marry human females by law. You have to know what kind of people all Koreans are. Most of Asian country don't give human rights to South Korean because Koreans are far different from humans. It's time to know the difference.

  18. 얼마전 천사대교가 개통됐다 압해도등 섬사람들은 다리개통으로 삶이 확달라졌지만 육지 사람들은 그다지 변화가 없다

    뭐 배안타고 낚시갈 수 있는 지역이 하나 더 생겼을뿐

  19. Did you say both side need to go over this hurdle? It's the Japanese thay need to admit their fault and bow down and apologize, what do u want Korea do? Go tell Japan, ah all the things u do to us we forgive u? And japan be like : wut i didn't do anything

  20. I love the idea. I love this video.

    That being said I have a feeling that this may turn bad particularly in the case of terrorism. It may be a dumb thought but given the area that this is being proposed in, despite its flourishing economies and communities, I see this as very susceptible to attack. Then again a trans worldwide railroad sounds like a dream to me as a person who loves engineering.

  21. Well they drive in different sides of the road. So why not just construct an underground high speed rail tunnel. If China builds it for them, three nations would be connected.

  22. It is not a connection to Asian mainland till North Korea participates. Also, the connection via Russian Sakhalin is much simpler. There is already a EAC, made up of a few Soviet splinter countries

  23. It's not really the engineering that's holding them back other than the tectonic plates, but it's more of the difference in culture and rejection of society.
    Some people are just stupidly patriotic and can't let go of the past. I bet once all the old people die, we will see change.

  24. Japanese and Korean government: Let's build a chune-

    Angry koreans: BITCH YOU RAPED US LIKE A 100 YEARS AGO

    Angry Japanese: BITCH WE DIED TO STOP YOU

  25. it is possible. Even china already on its way for underground tunnel from liaoning to shandong, same distance as you mention in japan korea. But it will never happen. lets leave it like that

  26. Most of the Koreans highly deny the undersea tunnel between two nations. It won't be beneficial for both Korea and Japan because of complicated reasons lol

  27. This korean comments so fucking annoying. They are so closed minded about everything. As a korean, I really don't see the problem with this plan.

  28. Yeah but japan and south korea could also team up to take down north korea and split up the won land and gain millions of happy workers who would appreciate a modern lifestyle with economic safety.
    Tho there would may be some resistance from russia and china

    Jus sayin

  29. First things first…….Japan has to apologize to south Korea.
    Some say they did but hell no they never did.
    They just wanna cover all the terrible things they have done with some money….

  30. Denmark and Sweden have a bridge and tunnel in one connecting each other so why can’t Japan and Korea do the same Even ships go under it seriously it’s a big bridge

  31. 1) Both countries are closing relationship now.
    2) If it's connected, S.Korea is isolated and so it's no use.
    3) If Japan wants to be connected with continent, between Hokkaido and Sakhalin is more cost-efficient.

  32. If you want to build a tunnel to South Korea, you would only gain access to South Korea as there is no other way to mainland Asia apart from going through North Korea

  33. I literally drew a model of how the people would cross if they drive on different sides. It’s still doesn’t make sense haha, but a little more now. Howdy
