The Special Investigation Committee, which was created to punish pro-Japanese, was destroyed due to the interference of the Rhee Syngman administration. Since then, the Committee’s Investigators and their descendants live a painful life in the bondage of poverty and ideology.
The failure of the Special Investigation Committee of Antinational Activists to clear the pro-Japanese groups is one of the causes of many problems that South Korea is facing right now. Those, who broke down the Special Committee at the time and labeled the committee members as "commies", maintained and strengthened their own power, removing the bridle of pro-Japanese. This may have been the reason why the former EBS producer, director Kim Jinhyuk, made this case, one of the most painful wounds in modern history, into a documentary. However, his company EBS stops documentary production by assigning him to another department. After leaving the company, he became a professor, but five years later, he focused on this story again. Aftermath is a realistic record of the history of the time by the people concerned as well as a meta-documentary about the process of the director preparing the film again. After the failure of the Special Investigation Committee of Antinational Activists, the stories of the people concerned and their descendants, who had lived a terrible life, were remade after nearly 10 years.
