Sorry, I chose my words unwisely. Of course your points weren't "irrelevant" to the article, and you're quite right (and more than welcome to!) to correct factual errors in anything I write. But still, Seoul's size and the existence of other, non-Western industrialized societies doesn't detract from the basic point of the article that young Koreans' living habits have far more to do with economics than with culture. (that's what I meant to say yesterday. In hindsight, Sugimoto's argument about Japan being the only nation outside Western countries to have achieved a high level of industrialization was indeed quite funny: I should have given it more scrutiny when I read it about 5 years ago. In his defense though, his book as a whole is quite a revelation, breaking many stereotypes non-Japanese people have of the place (my own too). Speaking of which, seeing as it's in the tab next to this one, here is a blog devoted to precisely that if you're interested. But you seem to have misinterpreted that part of my last comment. I don't mean to sound patronizing, but "^^" generally means something is funny in internet-speak, and actually I provided the quote of his to point out his mistake!

Sorry I'm not sure I understand what you are saying, why aren't my points irrelevant to the article? I read your link, and honestly I find it quite funny. In which way would Japan be the only nation outside Western countries to have achieved a high level of indusrialization? How exactly does the author defines "achieving a high level of industrialization"? That would means Korea is not a (highly) industrialized country anyway, which goes against what you affirm in your essay, no? When the term "industrialized nations" is not enough to affirm that Western countries are superior to others, people now use "highly industrialized countries" as a new term, fantastic. I would also be interested, even if it's beside the point, to know how many "highly industrialized countries" do not owe their present status to past international crimes: colonization, wars or slavery. (or reserves of oil, even if that's not a crime in itself). Probably can count that on my fingers I'm pretty sure.
