Recently, a statue of Abe kneeling down to apologize has been erected in the Korean botanical garden, causing controversy. According to Japanese media reports, the statue, based on Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, depicts Abe’s kneeling posture in front of a comfort woman statue. The botanical garden originally planned to unveil the statue on August 11. But the ceremony has now been suspended due to constant criticism from South Korea’s conservative party.
According to Japanese TBS television reported on the 28th, the South Korean botanical garden announced on the 25th of this month that a “Abe’s apology image” built at the foot of Wutai Mountain in Jiangyuan road will be opened to the public on August 10. The statue shows that a man about 1.8 meters tall is lowering his head, touching the ground with his hands and kneeling devoutly. A “girl image” symbolizing the issue of comfort women was sitting in front of him.
