Kuni Institute of Creative Dance
https://web.archive.org/web/20210225043214/https://www.kuni-dance.jp/
Tokyo company and training institute of Masami Kuni, also known as Ehara Masami (江原正美), better known by his professional pseudonym Masami Kuni (邦正美, or marked as Korean: 방정미; Pang Chŏngmi) or birth name Park Yeong-in (Korean: 박영인 Pak Yŏngin) – was born in Ulsan, Korea and had adopted a Japanese name and persona after the massacre of Koreans in 1923 when he was a high school student. Park studied aesthetics at Tokyo Imperial University and became a professional dancer before moving to Germany. He worked for Nazi Germany during WW2 but was a spy for the Empire of Japan in Europe. Park Yeong-in's family were members of the Korean aristocracy, who could verifiably trace their lineage back to the 1600s (served via Wayback Machine).
