Civilizations 30: Korea’s Dilemmas from Donghak Uprising to Sino-Japanese War 1894

Korea’s dilemmas with the imperialists

By the 1860s it was Korea’s turn to face the dilemma of how to deal with the imperialists. Qing China and Meiji Japan had a lot to say about what they thought Korea should do. We talk about the attempts to reform, Donghak Uprising in Korea, and the Sino-Japanese War of 1894-5.
