My name is Kim, Bok-soon, Part1

Dance Performance, a tribute to the comfort women…

Story:

My name is Kim, Bok-soon.
I am sixteen years old..I am a happy child with an aspiring dream..
Love is there, too.
However, everything is taken away like a storm..
Dream, love, friends, my family…everything has gone..

After all indescribable hardship, no one greets me at home..
Everything has changed, including myself..
Take all things happened as a part of life,since the incessant sorrow is the burden I have to live with..I would and I will…

Then, I realize the dream of a sixteen year girl has still alive inside me..
The time when I was happiness, dream and love itself..
It is not over yet..
That time has come upon me again with a smile, telling me,
“You’ve been a good girl.”

0:01:04:04—0:01:07:17
你们这些日本鬼子,杀了我也休想把这些拿走。
0:01:07:22—0:01:10:15
我是不会妥协的。
0:01:10:22-0:01:14:09
带着我家的下人们
0:01:14:16-0:01:17:00
把铜器都埋在了地里
0:01:17:13—0:01;20:05
晚上挖了好几十行
0:01:20:11—0:01:24:03
挖好了以后,就埋在地里了。
0:01:24::08—0:01:26:23
不知道是谁告了密
0:01:27:04—0:01:30:13
我父亲就被抓走了.
0:01:38:12—0:01:40:08
有一次,我去看我父亲。
0:01:40:15—0:01:47:12
我的父亲很生气
0:01:47:19—0:01;50:11
他说,那儿不是我该去的地方
0:01:50:17—0:01;53:00
让我不要再去那儿
0:01:55:01-0:01:59:14
就算来了,他也不会见我。
0:01:59:21—0:02:02:14
嘱咐我,千万不能再去那儿。
0:02:02:20—0:02:04:19
我父亲训了我一顿
0:02:17:13—0:02:20:07
过了几天,村长来了。
0:02;20:20—0:02:27;07
小姐,在日本做碗的工厂
0:02:27;13—0:02:31:06
在那个工厂干上两年到两年半
0:02:31:10—0:02:34:18
受点儿苦出来就行了
0:02:34:22—0:02:39:03
就是说我去那家工厂工作,我父亲就能被放出来。
0:02:40:10—0:02:42;17
那个时候就信以为真了
0:02:45:18—0:03;01:18
他的父亲没有被释放,死在了监狱里。
0:03;18;05—0:03:21:13
我呢,去了雅加达。
0:03:21:18—0:03:24:08
有个地方叫斯马朗
0:03:24:14——-0:03:31:08
一共13 个人去了那儿
0:03;32:11—0:03:36:20
到了那儿才知道 , 那儿不是日本
0:03:32:11—0:03:36:20
是一个很远的国家。
0:03:57:22—0:04:02:08
开始的时候,有一天晚上来了一个军官。
0:04:02:13—0:04:04:20
喝得烂醉
0:04:05:01-04:08:09
吓得我直发抖,那个时候我才15 岁。
0:04:08:17—0:4:14:21
在去那儿的人中, 我的年龄最小。
0:04:15:23—0:04:19;09
就那样
0:04;19;19—0:24:22:07
受到了凌辱。
0:04:37:15-0:04:41:19
从那以后,我不想理会他们 ,反抗挣扎的时候
0:04“41:23—0:04:44:09
给我注射了鸦片
0:04:44:15—0:04:48:00
就那样我就鸦片中毒了。
0:04:55:11—0:05:02:12
连数都数不清,也不知道是星期几。
0;05:02;15—0:05:06:23
排着对,连衣服都不脱。
0:05:07:02—0:05:10:15
到哪儿去诉这些苦啊?
0:05:38:09—0:05:40:15
死了两个人
0:05:49:14—0:05:56:07
像埋死狗一样就给埋了
0:05;56:14—0;05;59:04
哪有什么葬礼啊
0:06:07:14-0:06:11:03
有一种金鸡纳霜疟疾药
0:06;11:12—0;06:16:03
我攒了40片
0:06:16;19—0:06:22;03
因为军医官是韩国人,我每次攒了2片,3片。
0:06:22:10—0:06;26;06
我把攒的那些药一下就吃进去了
0;06:27;05—0:06:31:15
想死还没死了
0:06:32;21—0:06:34:19
三天后醒了
0:06:36:13—0:06;39:19
听在场的人说
0:06:40:23—0:06;47:23
从嘴里,鼻子里,耳朵里出了很多血,浑身都是血。
0:07:02;14—0;07;08:04
一个星期去检查一次身体
0:07;08;20—0:07;12;07
部队里有一个野战医院
0:07;12:19—0:07:15:13
另外还有一个大医院
0:07:16:02—0:07;19:08
从那儿出去,可以看到印度尼西亚的土著民
0:07:20:01—0:07:23;21
看到他们真是开心极了
0;07:24;12—0:07;26;21
脸特别黑
0:07:28:07—0:07:29:15
即使那样也特别高兴
0:07:29:21—0;07:32:22
一直周围都是男人,看到那些人
0:07:33:11—0;07:38:12
眼泪就往外涌
0:07;47:08—0:07:50:02
我们没想到他们能投降
0:07:51:01—0:07:57:02
当时去了13个人,死了3个人。嗯,有3个人死了。
0:07:57:18—0:08:02:11
剩下的10 个人,那个防空洞
0:08:03:09—0:08:05:23
那个防空洞,一下子进不了那么多人。
0:08:06:19—0:08:09:14
就带了几个人进了那个防空洞
0:08:10::18—0:08:13:09
后来才知道,把带进去的人埋在那儿了。
0:08:14:03—0:08:19:12
10个人中不是4个就是3 个
0:08:20:03—0:08;23:00
先进防空洞的人全都死了
0:08:28:16—0:08:31:14
在部队里有韩国军人
0:08:33:12—0:08:37:03
有来取士兵们衣服的人
0:08:37:12—0:08:39;13
那个人是印度尼西亚人
0:08:40:20—0:08:46;05
韩国军人写了一封信交给了那个人
0;08:46:13—0:08:48:02
那封信是给联合军的
0:08:48;12—0:08:51;13
让那个人快点交给联合军
0:08:53:02—0:08:54:20
所以那些联合军就闯了进来
0:08:55:08—0:08:57:10
如果稍微晚一步,我们可能就死了。
0:08:57:14—0:08:59:02
就可能进了那个防空洞
0:09:13:18—0:09:15:13
我成了孤儿。
0:09:15:20—0:09;18:16
父亲去世了,母亲也去世了。
0:09:19:09—0:09:23:08
然后所有的下人也都离开了
0:09:24:00—0:09:30:10
回到了家以后,我就戒了鸦片。
0:09:31:06—0:09:34:23
戒鸦片大概花了4、5个月的时间。
0:09:36:04-0:09:39:16
我的家里就剩我一个人了
0:09:46:03—0;09:49:12
后来时间长了,
0:09:50;03—0:09:53:08
就想只要留着我这口气,
0:09:53:13—0:09:59:02
就算能抢走我的身体,也没法夺走我的灵魂。
0:09:59:16—0:10:03:03
靠着那样的想法,活到了现在 。

Even though they look different.
They looked different, darker skinned, but still I was so glad to see them.

Ellos se veían diferentes, con su piel más obscura, me alegraba mucho verles.

0:07:29:22 – 0:07:38:12
Because I was just so overwhelmed to see people other than Japanese soldiers.
Man after man. Seeing others just made me so happy, made me want to cry.

Persona tras persona, ver a otros me hacía muy feliz , me hacía querer llorar.

0:07:47:03 – 0:07:51:07
We didn’t even realize that Japan has surrendered.

I found out later that a few girls were slaughtered and buried in the bomb shelter.
I learned later that they were taken there to be slaughtered.

Luego me enteré que las habían llevado allí para ser masacradas.

He rushed the laundry man to deliver the letter to the allied forces.

Él apresuró al lavandero para que llevara la carta a las fuerzas aliadas.

0:08:52:22 – 0:08:55:12
That’s how the allied forces found where we were.

0:08:55:15 – 0:09:00:04
If they hadn’t come any sooner, we all could’ve been killed in that bomb shelter.
If then had come any later we would have all been killed in that bomb shelter.

Si ellos hubiesen llegado un poco más tarde, todos habríamos sido asesinados en ese refugio antibombas.

All by myself, there. Alone at home.

Estaba ahí sol…en casa.

0:09:46:04 – 0:09:53:11
I kept telling myself that I just have to stay alive

Me repetí a mi misma que tenía que sobrevivir.

0:09:53:13 – 0:09:59:08
They may have taken away killed my body, but not my spirit.

Ellos me habían quitado mi cuerpo, mas no mi espíritu.

0:09:59:10 – 0:10:03:01
That is how I survived.

Así fue como sobreviví.
