Giant ‘Comfort Women’ poster erected in Time Square

Posted: Oct 05, 2012


South Korean singer and well known political campaigner, Jang-hoon Kim and PR expert Prof. Kyoung-duk Seo are taking the sensitive topic of Comfort Women to the US.

A poster, asking “Do You Remember?”, was erected in New York’s Time Square on Wednesday in an attempt to continue the conversation of Japan’s atrocities in World War 2 overseas. It shows former German chancellor Willy Brandt making his ‘silent apology’ at a Jewish ghetto monument in Warsaw in 1971, and asks the same from Japan.

“In 2012, Korean women forced to work as sex slaves for Japanese soldiers during WWII are still waiting for a heartfelt apology from Japan,” it says.

Kim told K-Pop Starz:“This issue of what happened to the Korean women is becoming a worldwide issue. We decided to post these in Times Square because we knew that many people would see it and quite possibly raise awareness about the issue.”
