Before Korea's scheduled summit meeting with Japan at the end of November, President Suh Hyun-woo invited 41 surviving comfort women to the Chungmu Room for dinner. He intended to negotiate with Prime Minister Abe about the Japanese government's sincere apology regarding the comfort women and the responsible compensation that should follow the apology after hearing the opinions of the grandmothers.
"Mr. President. The Minister of National Defense and the Chairman of the Joint Staff are requesting to see you urgently."
Chief Secretary Na Sung-tae approached the President and spoke quietly, interrupting the President's pleasant conversation with the women.
"Is it urgent?" asked the President.
"Yes, Mr. President," Secretary Na replied.
