영원한 증언 Eternal Testimony | 2018-Present

Updated: Nov 16, 2023

As of May 2018, there are only 28 survivors of the Japanese military comfort women (As of Nov 2023, only 9). We initiate the '영원한 증언 Eternal Testimony' project, a novel way to preserve our history for all perpetuity in a vivid and memorable way. Inspired by NDT project at USC ( for holocaust survivors, the 'Eternal Testimony' project records the testimony of the victims of Japanese military comfort women in a new way. With artificial intelligence technology, we offer a virtual experience of meeting and interacting with them in person. This project, started in 2018, is on-going project and is currently sponsored by Ministry of Gender Equality and Family. In 2020, we held a pilot beta exhibit in the LeeJuYeon Gallery at Sogang University. We successfully finished a 6-month beta exhibit in Seoul and Daegu in 2021.
