一言居士
– A person who has something to say about everything

The (Japanese) government’s position is that “South Korea is an important neighboring country that shares with us the basic values of freedom, democracy, and the market economy”.

A certain big businessman has said that the democratization of South Korea means that the countries share the same systems, which will lead to a shared awareness. I wonder if that part about “freedom” is true, however.
