Synopsis

Il-gwang and Niko use the same Chinese character, and a Japanese companies ran copper mines in those areas. During the period of Japanese occupation, some Koreans were relocated to work in Niko, or stayed to work in Il-gwang. The now-deserted places of labor exploitation bleed out crimson rusts.
