Interesting link: http://www.research.vt.edu/resmag/sciencecol/AFDC95.html --Espoo 11:59, 2 April 2006 (UTC)

This is a great and interesting page. My partner and I are working on a Wikipedia project for our Gender in East Asia anthropology class where we will be adding in information and making edits to this page. We are attending university and are just letting you know ahead of time that we will be adding in information. If you like our information please feel free to keep and enjoy it on the page, but if not, we please ask if you could please keep it on here until December? Thank you Smordoh (talk) 01:14, 25 October 2016 (UTC)

[edit]

What about the relationship between gaming addiction and sudden death?: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/05/26/AR2006052601960.html There seems to be a relationship, even though no "work" is involved...

Karōshi or Karoshi?[edit]

The article seems to use both "karōshi" and "karoshi" interchangeably. Is there any reason for that? Andrewski 20:50, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

Chances are it's simply a case of people contributing to the article who neglect to use the o with the macron. One needs either to copy and paste it or use the character map or an alt code in most cases. 72.200.151.13 (talk) 22:09, 14 June 2014 (UTC)

Korea[edit]

The article mentions "Korea" a few times. Is this North Korea or South Korea or both? That should be mentioned, since they are separate countries.

Just wondreing since when does North Korea report statistics on their work force and whether or not they work overtime or commit suicide from overwork? Angry bee (talk) 03:46, 4 May 2010 (UTC)


I have added an explanation about why the operating system uses the name karoshi, is this good enough?

Since you mention about China in the paragraph below, I feel like since you mention about Korea and Japan in the opener, it would be a good idea to mention about China as well. Smordoh (talk) 14:37, 25 October 2016 (UTC)smordoh

Karoshi and seppuku???[edit]

"This term has special significance in Japanese culture due to historical traditions of seppuku." What is the "special significance"? I'm a Japanese, but I can't get the point.

Yes I agree it doesnt make sense

Perhaps it has more to do with the concept of giri, or personal duty - if an employee were to give less than his absolute utmost, the company might fail or experience setback. They would therefore lose face, all because of a single worker. Viewer 22:40, 28 April 2007 (UTC)

Karoshi- the game[edit]

There is a game called karoshi that is heaps good. Admitedly the online isn't as good as the other version, but it is still heaps good. There should be some reference to this game, or another page about it 123.2.110.26 (talk) 04:33, 10 May 2009 (UTC)


I think mention of the video game shouldn't be listed as it is irrelevant. 12.129.97.254 (talk) 21:26, 9 July 2010 (UTC)

"5 Cases"[edit]

In the second paragraph, the article states "Since the late 1960s, 5 cases of karōshi were reported in Japan." I believe this is either a typo or very poorly worded. Never mind that five cases in forty years won't get anyone worked up; the statement is contradicted further down with the mention of the 2007 statistics. Since I can't find the source, I am removing the sentence until someone can fix it. 206.193.237.67 (talk) 20:26, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

In China[edit]

In this section, I will be elaborating about the business culture and guanxi networking. I will talk about businessmen going out to KTVs and nightclubs, which included heavy drinking to network to help them move up the ranks in the business world. I give an example about a successful businessman having to be hospitalized due to the pressures of fulfilling his "guanxi." This ties in to deterioration of health, which could eventually lead to guolaosi. I look at it in a different perspective in that death by overworking could mean also taking part in risky behavior to be more successful, which could eventually lead to death. I feel like it would be good to elaborate on this and link it to another wikipedia page on this topic. Smordoh (talk) 01:49, 25 October 2016 (UTC)Smordoh

Additions to Media Attention (and a general edit)[edit]

Since the movie "The Forest" came out earlier this year, I would like to add it due to its relevance to the karoshi topic. The Forest uses Aokigahara, an area of Japan beneath Mt. Fuji known as the "Suicide Forest," as its central focus. While it uses that as a jumping-off point I feel like the references to suicides (including references to karoshi) would be worth mentioning due to the awareness of death in popular culture. Also I included the Chinese term 'guolaosi' in the introduction paragraph to follow the inclusion of the South Korean term for karoshi. Jaytayl (talk) 14:26, 25 October 2016 (UTC)jaytayl


November 3rd[edit]

I apologize for the frantic series of edits, but we finally found a picture that won't get removed by Wikipedia. We're currently working on the page as a requirement for the class, but most of our edits so far have been minor tweaks. I just wanted to leave a note so there isn't any confusion! Jaytayl
