In the late 1960s and early 1970s, 12 to 16-year-old girls started working at the Pyeonghwa Market. When their peers went to school, the girls were running a sewing machine. They had labor classes. I heard the name of Jeon Tae Il, and I also learned that there is such a thing as the Labor Standards Act. Then, on September 9, 1977, he was imprisoned for fighting against the public authorities whoclosed the labor class while shouting “The second Jeon Tae Il is a woman”. Now middle-aged girls bring back memories of that era, the lives of female workers, and the social contempt and stigma. Unknown fighters admiring the sunrise in the East Sea, saying “it’s so fair” and “because everyone can see it”. Orally, he rewrites and rewrites the male-centered history of the Korean labor struggle.
