Koreans have a culturally ingrained sense of victimhood. Some of this is justified, I guess, given Korea's bitter history as both a vassal state of China and an annexed territory of Japan. Korea's current divided state, which is not of its own making, probably also adds to the pervasive sense of injustice. That said, Koreans often take their grievances too far and see "microaggressions" under every rock and in every dark corner. It's not a very healthy way to live, in my opinion, and I say that as a half-Korean myself.
