Rape

South Korean soldiers purportedly raped and sexually assaulted thousands of young Vietnamese women, some as young as 13 years of age. Many of these women bore children as a result of these assaults. Today, between 1,000 and 30,000 children of mixed Korean-Vietnamese ancestry, called Lai Dai Han, live at the margins of Vietnamese society.

Comfort stations

U.S. military documents apparently revealed that the South Korean Army operated comfort stations by forcibly recruiting young Vietnamese women.

Victims' response

Close to 35,000 have signed the petition to demand an apology from the South Korean President. U.S. politician Norm Coleman has also demanded an apology. But the South Korean veterans fiercely oppose any apology.
