Was that because there were no bloodshed in Taiwan during the occupation?

The Koreans really hated the Japanese but there has been so many stories circulated between and within the 2 countries about each other that it's hard to tell who's telling the truth. I think the Japanese have said and done enough to apologise for the past war crimes but some Koreans and Chinese won't let it go despite Japan contributing compensation since then. The fact that South Korea is thriving as an economic superpower is also no coincidence.
