1938 Seoul...a dangerous place to be. Korea, then, was part of the Japanese Empire...at least that is what Japan said. Heading into a war to take over half the world, Japan needed to keep the brave troops happy. Hence young, attractive Korean women were sent to Japan to serve as 'comfort women'....translation....prostitutes. To this day most Koreans haven't forgiven Japan, and either does the 2015 film "The Silenced."
