Description
May 23, 1592, 400 Years ago, when Japanese attacked the Cho-sun/Korea with a blitz, for the elimination of a power struggle within Japan, and for the safety of their political power, makes us rethink the relationship of both nations Korea and Japan of today.

The 200 years of peaceful period since the foundation of Cho-sun Dynasty made us achieve many cultural achievements like the invention of Han-geul (Korean Alphabet), the development of manufacturing skills for ceramic ware, in addition to the good relationship with the Myung Dynasty of China, so, it was natural for our county not to think to invade other countries or to be invaded by other countries.

And, when we recollect the period of 7 years of the Eim-Jin war, we find that the fighting was a close one except the first two month's retreat. Moreover, when we remember the fact that the political power of the Japanese collapsed, we could have minimized the damage of our country if we had prepared for the invasion of Japan more earlier.
