My guess is that [former Korean sex workers] chose to frame the U.S. military prostitution issue to ride the coattails of the Japanese ‘comfort women’ or 'jeongsindae' movement. They could have assumed — I have no proof — that there might be public sympathy or understanding, since the Japanese ‘comfort women’ issue is well-known nationally and internationally. But I think it was a mistake to choose that term. It undercuts the jeongsindae case and confuses the public.
