a real partnership?

The Japan times ran an interesting article written by a Korean and Japanese. By explaining the Japan-South Korea relation comprehensively, the two called for two nations to Turn Japan-South Korean ties into a real partnership.

The article wraps up what we have discussed so far and suggested recommendations for the real partnership. I want to give credits to them for a link between history of the past and the present (current issues). They diagnosed that the root cause of anti-Japanese sentiment lies in Koreans' "inferior complexity", which I agree with partially. Yet, I believe that the inferior complexity is "one" of many root causes of the problem.

As the author mentioned, Korean's incessant compliants are sure to exacerbate the Japan-South Korea relationship. However, The Japanese capricious official stance is another big problem.
