Yun Chung-Ok is a Korean scholar and activist whose investigations into Japanese war slavery during World War II led to the creation of The Korean Council for the Women Drafted for Military Slavery by Japan. Working with two other members of the group Korea Church Women United, Kim Hye Won and Kim Sin Sil, Yun created and conducted the "Military Sexual Slavery by Japan on-the-Spot Survey".

Yun frequently quoted from "Military Comfort woman" written by Kakou Senda as "200,000 Korean women were forced to be sex slave", however Senda wrote "200,000 women were forced to work for military factory, and 50,000~70,000 women out of them were forced to be Comfort Women." Yun also quoted from Senda as "200,000 Korean women forced to be Military Comfort Woman", however Senda wrote "50,000~70,000 women were Korean out of 200,000 women forced to work for military factory."

Professor Yun was also an English professor at Ewha Women's University.[1] Her studies focused on 19th century British novels.
