Storyline

The script was written by the original author of the novel, Jung-Mo Yoon. By adding new stories of the protagonist's son and granddaughter's generation on top of the original story that closely describes the life of a woman whose human rights had been infringed by Japan, the author provides diverse perspectives on the comfort women issue through each character in different generations. Accordingly, this play does not only reproduce and criticize Japan's past atrocities, but also suggest that the comfort women issue, also known as the Japanese colonial sex slave issue is not just an overpassed history and it is a universal problem and a common task that is assigned to all of us to resolve. Written by Arirang
