Korea under Japanese rule

"Korea under Japanese rule" refers to the period of Japan's physical occupation of the Korean peninsula in the early 20th century. Japan's encroachment began with the 1876 Treaty of Kanghwa with the Joseon Dynasty of Korea, increased with the 1895 assassination of Empress Myeongseong and the 1905 Protectorate Treaty, and was completed with the 1910 Japan-Korea Annexation Treaty. This period ended with Japan's surrender to the Allied forces in the Second World War in 1945, and Korea was subsequently divided into North and South Koreas. In Korea, this period is called the Japanese Imperial Period. This history, which involves allegations of Japanese war crimes, informs continuing disputes between Japan and the two Koreas.
