A South Korean man driving a pickup truck crashed into the gate of Embassy of Japan in Seoul on July 9, in an attempt to protest the Japanese right-winger who slandered the Korean comfort women.

According to the Korean police, the driver surnamed Kim drove his pickup and bumped into the embassy gate at 4:55 a.m. and was immediately arrested by the security guard. The gate was burst open about one meter, but no damage was made.

He aimed to protest against the Japanese man who erected a wooden stick in front of the girl statute, the token of comfort women, the police said.

A Japanese right-winger erected a white thin wooden stick near the girl statute in front of the Embassy of Japan on June 19, with words “Liancourt Rocks (called “Dokdo” in Korean) is an integral territory of Japan” on it.

The man also took pictures and recorded the video. The man is named Suzuki Nobuyuki, 47 years old. He posted photos and video on the Internet after returning to Japan and claimed that the bronze girl statue is a “memorial to prostitute”, which provokes the rage of the Koreans.
