>>522800 No, but they were vassals of China, because China was thought to be the center of universe and others Asian kingdoms had to accept that, pay their tributes and in some way emulate Chinese culture. When Mongols or Manchus ruled China they didn't see them in the same way, tho.
About OP's question, they didn't go mad because they couldn't, they are between China, Russia and Japan, so what they did is manage to survive, and is pretty impressive that they actually did. And don't forget about nomadic tribes that were north the Korean peninsula and in central Asia.
Japan didn't really do "evil shit," or at least what I'm assuming you mean as evil shit, until they began to rapidly westernize in the 19th and 20th centuries. I could go on and on about reasons for them getting into war and why they wanted more land etc. etc., but I don't really see the point when they really just did the same things most western nations had been doing over the past few hundred years, but in a much shorter time span.
What part of crazy China are you talking about, exactly? The Mao shit? Or all the great Qing stuff that happened?
