All national dailies wrote on Tuesday morning that South Koreans who were requisitioned to work at Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal’s plants during Japan’s colonial rule are likely to ask a local court to seize its financial assets in South Korea since the firm has refused to hold talks with the victims on the ROK Supreme Court’s ruling ordering compensation. Given that the two governments are still discussing how to defuse the dispute, the lawyers representing the plaintiffs reportedly stressed that they are still hoping to hold consultations with the Japanese steel company.
