Subject: Lee Hyori and Horan to lend their voices for a compilation album
Lee Hyori and Clazziquai‘s Horan will be lending their voices for an album that will be created to raise awareness and lift the spirits of the surviving ‘comfort women’, who are women who were kidnapped and forced into prostitution during Japanese occupation.
The female singers will participate in the compilation album entitled, ‘Please Share Your Story-Her Second Story‘ to encourage and lift the spirits of those who have had to live on with painful memories in the past.
In addition to Lee Hyori and Horan, Rasberry Field‘s So Yi, Huckleberry Finn‘s Lee So Young, Hawaii‘s Lee Ah Lib, composer Kim Yeon Soo‘s rock band JuckJuck Grunzie, and Lune have lent their voices for this album.
The album representative stated, “The current known number of Japanese comfort women survivors is 58 in total and to raise awareness of this issue, an ongoing weekly rally held its 1066 rally on the 20th. With the participation of artists, the pain of the comfort women who were deprived of a normal life due to war and violence will be heard through this music. We will try to encourage the women of this generation as well and will be an album that shares stories together.”
To raise funds for this project, a concert will be held at the KT&G Sangsangmadang in Seoul on April 5th at 7:30 PM KST and will feature performances by indie artists.
