Tsuda Daisuke Aichi Triennial art director, who attended a debate in Seoul, said the Japanese 'reaction to the girl's image was favorable.

[Daisuke Tsuda / Art Director: I had a bad impression about the girl award, but I heard that the impression changed a lot after I actually saw it.]

He also apologized for the decision to remove the statue, but for lack of prior notice.

[Tsuda Daisuke / Exhibition Artistic Director: When I decided to stop, I was sorry that I stopped without sufficient explanation. .]

Yuka Okamoto, executive director of the Girl Awards Exhibition, said there was not only an aggressive reaction at the time of the exhibition.

[Okamoto Yuka / Executive Commissioner: Of course, people who showed a destructive and aggressive attitude toward the Girl of Peace Award also came. When such a person comes (another audience), it's a work of art, let's be quiet, and let's look at history.

He says the case should see the real picture of Japanese society where censorship is rampant.

[Okamoto Yuka / Executive Commissioner: 40% of (right wing attack) deal with the king system. (Japanese) is a real look. If you don't see it, it's hard to cover the core of the Japanese problem.]

They emphasized the solidarity of artists and citizens from both countries in Japan to prevent attacks and censorship by the Japanese right wing.
