< Memory of Balbari > is a comic strip drawn by Kang Chul-soo and was featured in the newspaper Sports Seoul from 1988 to 1990. The comic strip became so popular that thanks to it the newspaper was able to achieve a circulation of 100,000. The fact that the comic strip also was made into a theater play and a movie further underlines that it was one of the major parts of this newspaper at that time. But it was the excessive depection of obscenities and the violation of sexual morals which eventually led to its discontinuation. While the comic strip had been criticizised in the 1990s for those two, seen from today the disparagement of women through language and perspective appears predominant. But even when the comic strip was republished in 2003, no critique in that regard was raised. Sexual discrimination and the disparagement of women in comics still has not become part of the discourse. While the increasing depiction of violence and sex in comics due to the severe competition of webtoon platforms has been raised, aspects of discrimination against women in those works, especially the objectification and disparagement of women, are rarely discussed. Even the current discourse on sexual discrimination and misogny only touches on these topics as something external to those works and their creators. This study will therefore introduce the aspect of disparagement of women in this widely read comic strip created by a major artist of the 1970s and 1980s. It will show in detail how the use of language and specific terms disparages women. Thereby, it is shown that it is necessary to treat the issue of gender equality in comics in the future as a basic point for consideration.
