By 2013, there had been a 8-year-long controversial naval base construction on Jeju Island, South Korea. Technically, it was going to be a Korean naval base, but due to South Korea’s Status of Forces Agreement with the United States, it was understood that it would be a proxy base for the U.S. Navy. 

In response to this, protesters, activists, and religious persons gathered in front of the construction gate at 7am, starting their day the same time as the construction workers. They would begin by bowing 100 times, and each bow was a dedication from broad notions of earth and nature to singular pain or death.
