In this critical and commercial Korean smash hit, a mentally-challenged man wrongfully imprisoned for murder befriends the hardened inmates of his maximum-security prison, who band together to help him see his daughter. Prepare to bawl. A loveable bat-swinging circus gorilla gets recruited by the Korean Baseball League in this wild sports comedy.
TOKYO — North Korea had launched its third barrage of short-range missiles in just over a week, parading its growing ability to strike its neighbors with devastating firepower. But instead of banding together against a common adversary last week, the two American allies in the path of the missiles — Japan and South Korea — were locked in their own bitter battle, whose roots stretch back over years. The long-simmering conflict erupted into a full diplomatic crisis on Friday, when Japan threatened to slow down exports of materials essential to South Korean industries. But despite the dangers of a deepening divide between its allies, the Trump administration has been reluctant to get involved to repair the rift. Still, as tensions escalated in recent days, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo attempted on Friday to orchestrate a reconciliation at an Asian security conference attended by regional foreign ministers.

While there are some similarities, for me it is easy to tell that someone was raised in Japan versus China, and sometimes Korea as well. However, in China, the handshake has actually become a common greeting, with only a slight head nod rather than the traditional bow. I noticed this a little in my experiences with Chinese people, but especially with the Korean and Japanese. Another mannerism that I noticed in everyday life was the volume and tone of speaking.
