Korean 'Comfort Women' to File Complaint Against Japanese Rock Band Updated: 2013-03-04 16:39:38 KST

A group of elderly Korean women who were forced into sexual slavery by the Japanese military during World War Two, has filed a complaint against a Japanese rock band for calling them "prostitutes" in a recent song.
A total of eight women from the "House of Sharing," a shelter in Korea for former sex slaves,.. filed the complaint with the Seoul Central District Prosecutor's Office on Monday.
The song, released on YouTube last Thursday ahead of Korea's Independence Movement Day, calls for the death of victims of Japanese sexual slavery, and refers to them as prostitutes.
The band also sent a CD of their song to the 'House of Sharing' along with a copy of the lyrics translated into Korean.
