Here are some stills from the 2004 film Doma An Jung-geun:
The Korea Herald has an article reminding us that this week is the 100th anniversary of the death of An Jung-geun after "his daring assassination of the peninsula's first Japanese Governor-General Hirobumi Ito." It's titled "Seoul demands Japan's cooperation."
Korea's chief of patriots affairs rebuked Japan on Monday over the lack of help from the former colonial ruler in finding the remains of a renowned Korean independence fighter, saying such an "insincere" attitude hampers efforts to move ties between the two nations forward, according to Yonhap News.[...]That Japan would have such a lackluster response and behave in such an 'insincere' manner when asked to help find the person they called a 'bloodthirsty''fanatic' after he killed Ito, the first Japanese prime minister, doesn't really surprise me. The perceived inability of the Korean side to see this is rather perplexing, if not all that surprising.
Patriots and Veterans Affair Minister Kim Yang said his agency has found new Japanese records on the imprisonment of An and other independence fighters -- information that Japan has so far denied having despite Seoul's repeated requests. Kim said the new finding means that Japan is deliberately withholding information on An.
"Our attempts (to find An's remains) were discouraged several times by Japan's lackluster response."
"These newly found documents prove how insincere the Japanese government has been to our repeated requests for cooperation in finding records related to martyr An," he added. "In order to open up a brand new century between Korea and Japan, the Japanese government must give some earnest answers."
