What is the article missing[edit]

Quite a lot. The article is written like Anti-American sentiment in "South Korea" not in "Korea", so it misses totally that of North Korea. The U.S President, W. Bush's notorious comment like "Axis of devil" and related matter is also missing. Other newly added subcategories such as Yun Geum-i Murder Incident and two 14 years old girls murder by a U.S tank deserve to have their own article because that evoked anti-American sentiment deeply. SOFA should be dealt in the article as well. This is just a brief mention of "to-do-list".--Caspian blue (talk) 17:57, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

I put in the link to Axis of evil in the See also section. Heroeswithmetaphors (talk) 12:53, 27 August 2008 (UTC)
Why is only The Host mentioned? It used Anti-US sentiment as a plot-starter, while Welcome to Dongmakgol used it as the whole focal point of the plot and Army of Heaven featured obviously Anti-US ("they won't let us build a nuke") and pro-NK sentiment? Darkpoet (talk) 23:30, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

deeper historical resentments[edit]

The "deeper historical resentments" mentioned I think refers to the humiliation suffered by Koreans as a result of subjugation by the Chinese (Sadaejuui) and, later, the Japanese (Korea under Japanese rule). I'm not currently putting in those wikilinks, however, for they are sure to be reverted without a citation. I'll look for an appropriate passage to cite from Korea's Place in the Sun. Heroeswithmetaphors (talk) 12:47, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

non-neutral[edit]

Calling people/cultures/soceities anti-American is an interpretation. All such accusations have to be attributed. Maybe Koreans didn't protest the manslaughter of two teenagers because they are anti-American, maybe they protested because the are anti-manslaughter. Duh. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 118.130.65.30 (talk) 10:50, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

You need to visit South Korea sometime. Darkpoet (talk) 23:30, 4 December 2008 (UTC)
The IP is from South Korea. This article is unadulterated anti-Korean bigotry. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 218.55.182.160 (talk) 09:57, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

Quoted from the article:

"After a trial in April 1993, the accused was sentenced to life imprisonment. He appealed to the court in December of that year, and the sentence was reduced to 15 years. He appealed again on April 29, 1994, to the Supreme Court, which rejected the appeal. Custody of Markle was handed over to the Korean government on May 17, 1994. On August 14, 2006, Markle was released on parole and flown back to the USA. He had been imprisoned a total of 13 years, 6 months, 4 days."

How is this plausible? No source and figures don't work out. Which is it? Was he imprisoned at the specified time or did he serve the stated period of time?

US beef import[edit]

It is a largely irrelevant topic. The Protestors protested to only 3 things. 1. Lee Myung-bak govt. 2. Grand national party 3. Mad cow infected beef. In fact, Anti-Govt. activist use it as matter of anti-govt. propaganda. Anti-US itself is not their purpose. They did not protest to US country itself. Also, In that times, Anti-US opinion was not existed. (accoriding to survey, Korea are pro-US in that times)660gd4qo (talk) 09:41, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

No mention of North Korea?[edit]

This article is called 'anti-American sentiment in Korea', but the article is almost entirely about South Korea. I might be wrong, but I would have thought anti-American sentiment is considerably stronger in North Korea. Perhaps not much has been written about it, but isn't there something that could be added to this article? Robofish (talk) 11:34, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

South and North Korea are so politically different that it would be pointless to gather "Anti-American sentiment in both Koreas" in one article. I guess this article can be renamed to Anti-American sentiment in *South* Korea. 216.239.45.4 (talk) 01:04, 28 October 2011 (UTC)
Ya i think it is difficult to have sources that relate to anti-american sentiment in north korea because they are so heavily censored. I would be down for the renamed proposition though.P0PP4B34R732 (talk) 01:12, 28 October 2011 (UTC)

Poorly written - translation issues?[edit]

This article is very poorly written, and has multiple grammatical issues that could only have resulted from poor translation. I struggled to find a single sub-heading that didn't have serious grammatical issues. Either somebody with knowledge of these particular events should clean this up, or whole sections need to be removed, because they honestly make very little sense. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.110.179.229 (talk) 21:54, 12 December 2012 (UTC)

Kill those fucking Yankees![edit]

OK, so whoever wrote "Kill those f--ing Yankees" on the page needs look at this. I tried to change it to "fucking", but the automated filter wouldn't let me. Any help? 67.242.172.224 (talk) 17:11, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

The Gwangju Movement and the United States[edit]

This article currently does not mention any of the information in the above link. JeffKo427 (talk) 23:28, 23 February 2014 (UTC)

Notability[edit]

Is there any reason for this article at all? Are there comparable articles on anti-German sentiment in the USA, anti-American sentiment in Russia, or anti-Palestinian sentiment in Israel, for instance? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Royalcourtier (talkcontribs) 03:51, 4 October 2014 (UTC)

Anti-Americanism is an at least somewhat prominent phenomenon in Korea, with political heft and consequences. Anti-American sentiment in Russia has a much larger article. Arumdaum (talk) 11:34, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

Yun Kuem Yi[edit]

윤금이 is romanized as "Yun Kuem Yi." The romanization of 금 as "kuem" is really odd; I've never seen it before. Is this how her name was romanized in western sources? Arumdaum (talk) 11:30, 17 December 2014 (UTC)

Single-Author Contribution Borders on Polemic[edit]

Recent edits have changed the main section of the article to imply that anti-American sentiments in Korea is a pseudo-North Korean injection. the passage uses Obama-era polls to tout the pro-American sentiments in Korea, while dismissing historical points of friction. The polls themselves merely show a snapshot in the Obama era, and neglects to mention that South Korea's attitudes towards the U.S., like in many other nations, reached a contentious low in the Bush era, according to the Pew's Global Attitudes & Trends records. (As a sidenote, it may be of use for anyone intending to contemporize the article that the South Korean opinions of the American president and its people diverge sharply in 2017.)

The citation of the conservative Chosun in highlighting something from 2008, the last year of the Bush administration, may be problematic. The most obvious problem, however, lies in its portrayal the 1980s and the American Culture Center arson. In contextualizing the event in history, as opposed to merely portraying a conspiracy for political advancements by NL, one could easily be informed by the Cherokee files, which start in the Carter administration, and the silence from the subsequent Reagan administration, both of which show how the U.S. decisions played into Chun's favor. There is more nuance in a less-formal Korean wiki article than here. 199.168.78.52 (talk) 15:20, 26 December 2017 (UTC)
