“My lifetime dream is to be remembered not as Japanese but as Korean Sohn Kee-Chung!”
VANK made this poster because we believe that 75 years after the liberation in 1945, the wish of Sohn did not come true.
Many web sites around the world still use Sohn’s Japanese name and indicate his nationality as Japanese.
VANK made this poster with the wishes of the marathoner Sohn Kee-Chung, who won the gold medal at the Berlin Olympics in 1936.
On the poster, the nationality ‘KOREA’ was inserted into the chest of Sohn, who cut the winning tape at the Berlin Olympics, and his lifelong dream was engraved.
