Diplomatic relationships between South Korea and Japan have been rather shaky lately, fueled by a dispute over rocky outcrop of an island called Dokdo by the South Koreans and Takeshima by the Japanese. Both country claim the ownership of the island with neither willing to give it up. Apparently, South Koreans feel so strongly about it, they organized a demonstration to express disdain with arrival of a Japanese special envoy.
Before Japan’s envoy Fukushiro Nukaga landed in South Korea, a group of demonstrators gathered at Gimpo International Airport with one of them, a man identified as Lim Chang-geun taking the demonstration to a whole new level by stabbing himself in the stomach with a kitchen knife. The act was symbolic of Japanese ritual suicide Hara-Kiri.
