Women of Two Homelands

On August 15, 1945, Korea won its independence from Japan.
However, there were women who could not enjoy this freedom.
They were "Japanese wives," Japanese women with Korean husbands, and Korean Japanese women who had no place to call home in Korea.

Jang Bu-deok is a "Japanese wife." Her Japanese name is Kyoko Ikeda.
As a Japanese woman who married a Korean man, she couldn't even return to her homeland after she lost her husband and children during the Korean War. She also had to live the past 70 years of her life facing discrimination. Her wish is to visit Najarewon, a welfare center where elderly Japanese women live.

Many Japanese women like Jang have passed away, and there's only one place where their gathering still takes place: Busan Lotus Gathering. A few remaining Japanese women get together once a month.

Japanese weren't the only people whose lives were completely changed by history.
Hwang Jeong-sun's mother was a Korean woman who went to Japan for marriage.
Unable to overcome discrimination, she came back to Korea with three of her five children. Hwang Jeong-sun was born as the third child. Now, her only remaining sibling
is a younger brother who grew up in Japan. She meets her younger brother for the first time in years. What will their reunion be like?

These women have carried the scars of history in their hearts for decades.
Stories of those who experienced great hardships in both Korea and Japan as well as the efforts of the Busan Lotus Gathering are told on Arirang Prime.
