Synopsis

Professor Gwiok Kim has been researching on peace in terms of gender, and in 2002 she publishes a thesis that claims there was a comfort women for Korean military. Later, a few Korean and japanese press reported about it, but it was soon forgotten. Maybe this is because there weren’t any people who came forward and testified like Haksun Kim, a former Japanese military comfort women. As time passes, materials kept in the Ministry of National Defence became unaccessible. Media kept silence as if it had been promised, and while this issue was forgotten in Korea, Japanese Net Right reproached Korea saying “you Koreans also had comfort women for your own military” based on professor Kim’s thesis, followed by Japanese government avoiding their responsibility of Japanese military comfort women. In 2014 professor Kim published another thesis related to Korean military comfort women. She believes that the truth she discovered would rather be a solution in solving the Japanese military comfort women problem. It has been already 20 years since she listened to the testimonies of the truth.
