ABSTRACT

Japanese military comfort women(Wianbu) problem is a matter of sexuality and political power during the World War Ⅱ. The war caused the Japanese military comfort women. The main part of the war is the nationstate. Even though the value of time is different, the value of human rights is sacred. Human rights are natural legal universal values. War damaged sexuality and human rights were destroyed. Human rights have no statute of limitations, these cannot end up with a treaty or reward. Nation-state power must be regulated, and human desires should be restrained. But during the war, nation-state power was not controlled, and moderation was meaningless. The crime(sexual violence) is worse, to Japanese military comfort women. The responsibility(apology and compensation) of the Japanese colonial era is to the Japanese government. The Korean government should have a higher morality if the Korean government wants to make a bold request to the Japanese government. In order to do this, the Korean government should look at the responsible for the Korean military crimes of the Vietnam War, such as apology and compensation. At the conclusion of this article, I sought an exit. It is the statue of peace as a symbol, Cultural Resistance. The statue of peace resist against the dualityof the nation-state and the human rights issue. The remaining challenge is to make a history of the majority that have been conscious of the vitality of human rights and cultural resistance. The question of how to be a practical democracy is to be constantly asked. Any argument should be allowed in the nation-state, and dark ages should be prevented, for example the Candle Demonstration(“Is this a nation-state?; Ege Nara Nya?”) in 2016. So, the Japanese military comfort women ‘problem’ should be an ongoing, not a period, but a question mark.
