  1. US has no right to pressure SK when it was Japan who violated. SK said they will reconsider GSOMIA if Japan reinstated whitelist.

  2. Also shame on US for asking outrageous amount of defense fee when SK is helping US all they can..buying US weapons and supporting US business and economy.

  3. Threatening or pressuring a country who wants to defend their nation is not good especially when US knows that it's not SK who caused this. That is not how you treat a partner or friend. Weapons and Boeing airplanes SK often buys cost billions of dollars just about every year. US received many economical benefits from SK as well.

  4. @Moses Jun  【prompt】11/22 17h21m, Japanese National Broadcast station NHK reports that South Korea has decided to withdraw the cancellation of GSOMIA.
    I guess that Moon Jae-in got scared.
