Korean nationalists pay for Times Square advertisement / Demand additional apologies from Japan

Korean nationalists are at it again. They’ve bought a new advertisement in New York’s Times Square, demanding that Japan issue more apologies for its wartime use of Korean comfort women:





The advertisement, which is more than 10 meters square, begins with the question “Do you remember?” and shows former German Chancellor Willy Brandt kneeling in apology for Nazi atrocities at a Jewish ghetto monument in Poland in the 1970s.

The sign says the action “promoted reconciliation in Europe.”

It continues: “In 2012, Korean women forced to work as sex slaves for Japanese soldiers … are still waiting for a heartfelt apology from Japan.”

The Japanese consulate apparently sent an official letter of protest to the advertising company that ran the ad. A futile move, no doubt.
