Well, the Japanese invaded and colonized them. And aside from mass murders, mass rapes, and all other kinds of terrible things associated with colonization, the Japanese tried to wipe out their cultural identity (cultural genocide). They destroyed their artwork, buildings... even tried to force them all to learn a different language.

And to top it all off... the Japanese downplay all those atrocities, to this day.

It's also why the Koreans really like Americans. America gave them their country back.
