Korean-American Joseph Yun Nominated as the US Ambassador To Malaysia

US Ambassador to South Korea, Sung Kim now has a fellow Korean-American ambassador this time in Malaysia:

Joseph Yun, a deputy assistant secretary of state, has been appointed U.S. ambassador to Malaysia.

Once the Senate approves his appointment, he will become the second Korean-American ambassador after Sung Kim, the envoy in Seoul. [Chosun Ilbo]

Speaking of Malaysia has everyone been following the MILF terrorist invasion of Malaysia’s Sabah province? I guess since these thugs could not get anywhere against the Filipino military they have decided to try their luck againt the Malaysians. The Malaysian military may not have as much combat experience as the Filipino military, but judging by the Malaysian soldiers I have worked with in the past I have no doubt they will crush these thugs.

    #6 well not to change the subject, but name one Korean President that isnt in jail or commited suicide becuase he was ggoing to jail. plus All the Korean companies steal tech from US, german & Japanese companies. Samsung spent decades copying Sony but never got sued since Sony was too arrogant to acknowlegde them. But Apple Sued

    I can help a little with #7, Dr. Yu.

    Roh Moo-hyun – The first President of the Sixth Republic trialed for impeachment. Roh’s suicide followed the suicide of a number of high profile figures under corruption investigations in Korea in recent years, including the former secretary of Prime Minister Kim Young-chul, former Busan mayor Ahn Sang-Young (who committed suicide while in prison), Park Tae-young, former governor of Jeolla province, and Chung Mong-hun, a former Hyundai executive. Roh himself had been sued by the widow of former Daewoo E&C head Nam Sang-Guk for allegedly making defamatory comments that drove her husband to throw himself off of a bridge. Roh’s suicide was followed later in the year by the suicide of another politician, the Mayor of Yangsan, who was being subject to a corruption investigation.

    One example is always enough for the ROKDrop. :razz:

    I wish we sent our politicians to prison after they leave office. :razz:

    Dr.Yu, you don’t need to be personally offended with #1. That poster sounds like a rea idiot without any inkling of “intelligence”.

    That put aside, are there more K-Ams in the State Department than any other government agencies or are those two the only ones who happen to be really great at what they do so they got promoted up to that level?

    You don’t see many Asians in the State Department or other U.S. Government agencies.

    #9. Syngman Rhee. Dae Jung Kim. Yong Sam Kim. No suicide or prison here …. Korean Air, Kia, Hanjin, Posco, Asiana, Dong Kuk, Medison, Doodam, KAI, Cheil Jedang, etc, no sign of USA company technology theft here too… Samsung vs Apple? Crapple won his legal actions against samsung only in the USA and recently in Japan and there are legions of people around the world that says samsung did not copy crapple …
    Well, there are flaws in Anon’s comments so unless he is retarded and can not be held responsible for his actions it would be good him to reconsider his words or based on his burden of proof proves that ALL presidents in korea went to jail or commited suicide and that ALL korean comapanies stole USA technology, and that Sony did not sue Samsung becuse they were arrogants and that crapple sued samsung because they were not arrogants ….
    BTW, Anon do you really need your mom Leon to defend you here? Still waitting for your evidences for comments #5 and #7. Baek In Jae should also presente the evidences for his comment #1.

    #10. I once met a korean americam woman as consul (not general consul) in the american consulate in Sao Paulo (Brazil) more than 10 years ago, so yes, she was member of the USA state department. Unfortunatelly I cant tell you her name but she is no longer there.
    She used to tell me how hard it was for her to achieve such position and that her friends in the USA envied her a lot but none of them seemed to understand how much time she spent studying to be admited in the department and that everytime she was moved to a new country she had to learn the county’s language only in 6 months ….

    Asian-Americans, and Korean-Americans in particular, voting outside of the Republican agenda is antithetic to their interests in that many Asian-Americans are entreprenuers. So voting for the party that supports businesses, especially SMEs, would seem the better way to go. Plus, and I hope I dont offend anyone, Asian-Americans are not so interested in seeing taxpayer dollars go for social programs.

    #21, It is my wish that a poster like you be criminally prosecuted for such racist remarks that offend masses but I know full well that there is no such law or regulation in both the U.S. and South Korea to bring posters like you in front of the law. It’s a pity.

    I really think that your whining and bitterness toward other nationalities or race should be expressed in more adult fashion. Your comments are better suited to be spoken while under the influence of alcohol or drug in some sleazy joint. Please take your comments elsewhere. Those offend others. But of course, I don’t own this blog so if the owner of this blog let’s you go on about dissin’ other peoples, then I would be the one that would have to leave the racist blog.

    You usually make no attempt to make valid arguments and mostly go on on and on about the same three things while spouting baseless claims and random insults.

    I’m not even sure why you come on here in the first place, you’re not a Korean citizen, you’re not an American citizen, you don’t live in Korea or America and you have no affiliation with any of the organizations discussed here. Nothing talked about on ROK Drop concerns you in the least.

Your ancestors practically invented America and there you are miserable and laughed at by your students. You mean you couldn’t get your folks to pull their weight to get you a nice office job? Nepotism works here and you don’t need to bribe like in Korea. And burgers are cheap and plentiful too.

    I don’t agree with #1 despite the fact he does make valid points some of the time, but that’s what freedom of speech is all about.

    If one should be prosecuted for racism, especially on the internet, how many Koreans would be in jail? As usual the excuses absolving Koreans will be given for such things. A Korean guy in ’02 told me to “go back your country Yankee, Koreans hate America!” As far as I’m concerned, the usual apologies because of embarassment and “you have to understand us” bullshit excuses were and are pathetic.

    Generally, it seems to be ok for Koreans to be racist because there is always some excuse, usually based on their “tradgic” history, for this.

    America, my country and other countries like them have scores of minorities in advanced social positions. Can Koreans say the same about Korea?

    All this aside, congrats to Joseph Yun, I’m sure he worked hard to get to where he is today.

    Since the US has such a racial/ethno-centric fetish, I consider this appointment pure injustice. You just know there is a fully qualified Malaysian-American out there who deserved the position way more than Yun.

  • Dr.Yu
    2:08 pm on March 7th, 2013 40

    Korean americans are now part of the multicultural american society, so targeting them with anti-racial prejudice is of course illegal … and the appointment of Mr.Yun was based on meritocracy, not racial criteria, so if someone knows that his assignment was in someway conducted in a unfair or illegal manner, he or she should go to the authorities and accuse him formally so that the law violator face the due punishment (the accused or the accuser, of course).
    His nomination only brings to light a modern trend in american society today: asians are occupying more important post in american public administration (based on meritocracy) and korean americans are among them (and that happens despite of the ignorant racism in some part of the american society clearly visible here too …)

    #24 Sorry, but Republicans have chased away minorities, in particular Hispanic and Asian Americans, with their hate mongering. Hispanics are actually conservative Catholics and Asians have conservative work ethic, but instead of embracing these two groups, Republicans have chased them away with hate mongering. The demographics are changing, with Hispanics and Asians being the two fastest growing groups. However, the Republican party hasn’t adapted and are in big trouble for upcoming elections.

    Gd.evening. My father already told me Ambassador Joseph Yun’s name in Chinese character. It’s relevant to me because I am not proficient in Chinese characters. I come from a Malay-English medium school.
    I think I should welcome Ambassador Joseph Yun or ‘Joe’ to Malaysia
    by just telling him the ‘ummps! of what he could do in his new posting as an Asian-American whom could give the thumbs-up appreciations to my suggestions. I will try to be brief.

    Joe, in order to win local communities’ hearts, you must be religious. If you would like to come to the bottom of the typical Chinese ordinary man, I would choose a Chinese temple where you
    can walk in to say ‘Hi’ to the gods. Just go to Chinatown or
    Jalan Sultan – I suggest you just go and walk in The Beautiful
    Hindu Temple of Terazzo smooth and clean floorings. It is just
    very name to ‘The Saddening Dare Them! Demolished Site of The
    Malay Heritage Building in the silly order to build The my against
    MRT system plans!’ The Singapore-advised styling MRT has been
    going against my Environmental Reviews of The Environmental Department of The National University of Malaysia (UKM)- It’s outdated! It’s futuristic as predictably nuclearized problematic!
    (RE: The Transportation Department, c/o (tn.) Haji Hamid, The
    Deputy Director, Kuala Lumpur City Council (DBKL. With hopes
    Joe could make a visit to see Tuan Haji at the 8th Floor at
    DBKL 2 Building. The Tel. No. is 603-20282293 Fax: 603-26939245.

    After praying in The Hindu Temple, Joe may eat at Secret Recipe
    at The Building of The Malaysian Chinese Association at Jalan
    Ampang, next to Citibank. I suggest you eat at the place which is
    contradictory of actually where and how you eat, which is usually
    a Malaysian culture to eat at Hawkers’ Foods Stall is because
    The Malaysian Delicacies are just as nice and the cakes are so

    After having done your prayers and ate your Malaysian foods, you
    can just ‘hop’ to Ampang Park nearby and get whatever you need.
    Perhaps you also in this shopping complex, can eat your meals at
    the top floor of The Food Court where most Malaysians office staff
    have their lunch. Here, you must greet ‘The Penang Rojak Man’
    who mixed vegetables, fruits and crackers all summed into the
    prawn paste sauce would cause you only RM5 per set mixture.
    Any misunderstood should be of unintended apologies as a newcomer,
    please call my father, ‘Uncle Sam’ at 6 019-2237133 (h/p).
    thank-you. Rgds, (SAM KWEE TING(UKM))

    #43 Dr. Yu the US is a representative republic, not a democracy. Democracy is mob rule. As a republic all citizens have rights and duties, one of those rights is to vote by secret ballot. That secret ballot elects a representative to vote per the desires of those who elected that person to office. I could create my own blog on the perversion of those ideals, in that elected office holders are more beholden to the “party” they claim membership in or the “special interests” who buy the office, I am referring to the plans that were created over 200 years ago by the men who founded the government for this country.
