Arirang TV's exclusive, documentary special, The Waning Light: "Comfort Women" in the Northern Half sets out for a rare coverage of North Korean victims of "comfort women" or young women forced into sex slavery by the Japanese Imperial Army leading up to and during World War II.
In this sequel to 2013 documentary, "Comfort Women" One Last Cry, Connyoung Jennifer Moon and her team meet with those who have closely investigated the now-deceased North Korean victims and travel along the North Korea-China, North Korea-Russia border region to capture what's left of wartime military brothels.
From never-before-seen footage of the "comfort station" site in North Korea to on-the-record testimonies of North Korean victims of Japan's systematic torture and sexual enslavement, Arirang TV's The Waning Light: "Comfort Women" in the Northern Half, aims to shed light on the hundreds of thousands of young women who may otherwise lose their place in history.
