I'm a South Korean. Today there was an issue in Korea about what Donald Trump the US President said.
Donald Trump : They won't do that without our approval. They do nothing without our approval.
Lots of Korean Media translated it as "South Korean government are not allowed to do it without getting permission from the US".
but I think it's wrong translation and this related some cultural differences. I understand like, US and SK keep in touch each other and so US know and strongly believe SK will step forward about this issue with the consent of all. Am I wrong?
I'd like to hear how native speakers think. the word choice "approval" is too much for other countries and insulting word for Koreans? like sub-country?
