As you know, Japanese government METI published the update of the legal application of export controls to South Korea on July 1 and August 2.
On this subject there have been many medias’ articles, however, unfortunately, there are lots of articles which are totally wrong or incorrect under the serious misunderstanding of the above-mentioned Japanese update.
