Famous Movie Quotes about Dokdo

Korea is, again, on Dokdo Alert after a Japanese educational guideline asked teachers to teach about the legitimacy of Japan's territorial claims, which Korea interpreted as Japan's claiming Dokdo (Takeshima) as Japanese territory. After reading HERE what the Korean government is planning to do in retaliation for Japan's even hinting that Dokdo is Japanese territory, I decided to see if Dokdo was as important to the rest of the world by checking for references to Dokdo in famous movies. I was amazed at what I found.

The Fifteen Greatest Dokdo Movie Quotes

  3. "May Dokdo be with you until the empire strikes back!" (Star Wars)

  2. No,Chaamiey, they are just some silly jokes I made using famous movie quotes. For example, the famous quote from The Sixth Sense was just, "I see dead people." In Taxi Driver, it was, "You talkin' to me?" And in Star Wars, it was "May the force be with you."

    I was just feeling silly after reading Korea's silly reaction to Japan's educational guidelines.

    You have to remember that not all jokes are funny. :)

  3. It maybe funny to you but it kind of insulted me as a Korean. I was very relieved when you said it was a joke but please Koreans aren't only the one's that are reacting "silly" Japanese are also act "silly". If you really wanted to make a joke like this you should think about it. Anyway thanks for the effort
