Teen speaks with Tim Shorrock, humanitarian journalist for The Nation, to look past the simplistic mainstream narrative of “Good Korea/Bad Korea,” and into the troubling legacy of American militarism on the peninsula. Tim’s recent article “Welcome to the Monkey House” details the kichijon system, a coercive system of prostitution that bears a disturbing similarity to the Japanese “comfort stations” employed during the Second World War.
