2020考研英语时事阅读:日本和韩国口舌之争论

For those who like to do their shopping in peace, any branch of Muji or Uniqlo in Seoul, South Korea’s capital, was a good choice this summer. Usually bustling with shoppers, these stores have been all but deserted for weeks as South Koreans, angry at Japan for imposing export restrictions on their country in July, have boycotted Japanese products and bought their clothes and home wares elsewhere instead.

Meanwhile in Japan, there has been a revival of old tropes about “untrustworthy” Koreans. Exasperation with their neighbours’ perceived inability to put the past behind them is spreading from diplomats to ordinary Japanese. Yet the two East Asian countries are both liberal democracies and firm regional allies of America. Why can't they get along?

The spat has been brewing since last October, when South Korea’s supreme court ruled that Japanese companies that used Koreans as forced labourers during the second world war were obliged to pay compensation to individual victims who were suing them.

【参考译文】

对于那些喜欢在和平中购物的人来说,今年夏天,在韩国首都首尔的Muji或优衣库的任何分店逛街都是很好的选择。通常,这些商店都挤满了购物者。最近几周,韩国人处于日本在7月份对朝鲜实施出口限制引发的愤怒,他们开始抵制日本产品,转而在其他地方购买衣服和家居用品。

与此同时,在日本,关于”不靠谱”的韩国人的老生常谈也卷土重来。其邻国公认的无能 - 把过去抛在脑后,从而产生的愤怒正从外交官蔓延到普通日本人。但是,这两个东亚国家既是自由民主政体,也是美国坚定的地区盟友。为什么他们不能和睦相处?

这场口水战自去年10月以来一直在酝酿之中,当时韩国最高法院裁定,在二战期间将韩国人作为强迫劳动的日本公司必须向起诉他们的个别受害者支付赔偿。
