Abstract: »The Comfort Women issue has been unsolved, leading intense conflict between surviving comfort women and Japanese government. Now, the global community also intervenes comfort women issue, asking Japanese government to offer proper history education to prevent psychological violence to the victims. I would like to mention historical background of comfort women issue, contending how the same historical issue is interpreted differently according to the different cultural expectations, which provides new form of psychological violence upon the victims by misguided education system of Japan that defends Japanese own value over Korean values«.
