I have been thinking about whether South Korea could even conceivably level punitive measures against former "collaborators" and have come to the conclusion that it would not be a viable option mostly for the effect it would have on the economic security of the country. Dr. Larsen mentioned that Samsung had been founded by a supposed "collaborator", and that got me thinking about how many other huge economic entities within South Korea also got their start during Japanese colonial rule gleaning benefits from its modernizing influence. It would seem plausible that if all of these companies were penalized that South Korea's economy would suffer greatly. What do you think?
