Kim Chang-saeng’s novel “Kaze no Koe” tells the story of a twin sister who flees Jeju and smuggles herself into Japan. In a sense, women from Jeju Island who live in Japan constitute a diaspora based on two pillars, Japan and Jeju Island. They have survived many hardships such as patriarchal discrimination against women, ethnic discrimination in Japanese society, and the sacrifices made during the Jeju uprising.
The novel “Kaze no Koe” can serve as an illustration of how women in this diaspora are searching for their identity in this day and age, even as they are passing away over time.
Therefore, in light of Kim Chang-saeng’s novel “Kaze no Koe” this paper attempts to capture the lives of women who were forced to remain socially silent. This is because the novel is a clear testimony of Japan’s colonial rule and the Cold War structure of Japanese society, and I think it can help make it possible to heal the emotional wounds suffered by many at the hands of the state. In addition, the paper looks at the dynamics of the Jeju uprising.
