Korea is one in many countries that have received most damage from Japan in forms of forced mobilization. After the Manchurian incident in 1931 until the end of WWII in 1945, more than 7 million Koreans have been mobilized for war and forced labor. Among them, approximately 400,000 have been dragged to Japan and 300,000 have faced death. Such heartbreaking history exist but Japan has not publicly apologized for this matter to say nothing of the comfort women issue. However, it is said that a monument will be set up in Kobe city in the memory of Koreans drawn to Japan and exploited until death. Honorary Professor of Kobe Univ. Yasui Sankin explained the reason for the monument, saying its purpose is to reflect on their history of forced mobilization and to spread the truth to future generations. Acknowledging one's mistakes and apologizing. Wouldn't that be the features of a advanced nation? Including the government, every Japanese citizen should have an upright understanding of past history and have a sense of repent on issues such as the comfort women and Dokdo. Koreans on the other hand should open a new era of Korea-Japan relations with cool-headed attitude instead of clinging on to past history and anti-Japanese sentiments.
