Kim Jang-hoon Plans Center for ‘Comfort Women’ in New Jersey
Singer Kim Jang-hoon will build a center in New Jersey dedicated to raising awareness of women forced into sexual slavery by the Japanese Imperial Army during World War II. He revealed the plan on his Me2day account on Friday, adding the hope that the move will have a nationwide impact there.
"I've thought about the center since I made a plan for a U.S. concert tour", Kim said. "If all of the victim countries join hands to build it, Japan will have to admit its past wrongdoings".
A day earlier, the New Jersey General Assembly adopted a resolution urging the Japanese government to admit responsibility for the so-called "comfort women" and educate future generations about these crimes.
