Independence Movement Day Special: Kim Seo-kyung and Kim Eun-sung, the sculptors behind the Girl of Peace statues

The Girl of Peace Statue, also known as the Peace Monument, was installed in front of the Embassy of Japan in Seoul, Republic of Korea on December 14, 2011 to bring the much-needed attention to the issue of Japanese military sexual slavery, a tragic and horrific part of history that should never be forgotten or ignored. The creators of the statue, Kim Seo-kyung and Kim Eun-sung, joins us on the INNERview this week.

"Comfort women" is a euphemistic term referring to the women who were forced or coerced into sexual slavery by the Japanese Imperial Army during World War II from the 1930s until Japan's surrender in 1945. They were transported to "comfort stations," where they were forced to serve Japanese soldiers to "boost morale among the soldiers" and "raise efficiency in the war effort."

We went to Kim Seo-kyung and Kim Eun-sung's studio in Ilsan, Gyeonggi-do, which is the "birthplace" of the Girl of Peace statues installed in front of the Embassy of Seoul and elsewhere throughout the country and where various works by the couple can be observed.

We followed Kim Seo-kyung and Kim Eun-sung to the 1,918th Wednesday demonstration. We also met with students who have been voluntarily safeguarding the Girl of Peace Statue in front of the Embassy of Japan in Seoul following the agreement reached between the Republic of Korea and Japan on December 28, 2015.

Tune into the INNERview this week and meet Kim Seo-kyung and Kim Eun-sung, the creators of the Girl of Peace Statue that was made out of the ardent wish to restore the honor and dignity of the halmonis (lit. "grandmothers" or "elderly women"; referring to the "comfort women").
