Korean Empress Myeongseong was assassinated by Japanese killers.
The way of assassination is very shocking and terrible.
Back in late 1800s, Japanese empire had tried to dominate Korean empire and Empress Myeongseong had been seeking a way to protect Korea against Japan.
She had become an eyesore to Japanese empire and accordingly, the Japanese assassinators were ordered to kill her.
20 of assassinators invaded the Korean palace and made the king go down on his knees. As soon as they found Empress Myeongseong, the killers stabbed her in the ribs and stomach.
Twenty of assassinators raped her in turn and she was still alive until she got raped by 6th killer.
They kept raping her even after her death. The loyalists (who tried to stop the assassinators) were cut off the limbs.
Furthermore, all of maids of honor were cut out their breasts by assassinators. After that, one by one, they stabbed her ragged body from face to toe. They also cut out her breasts in front of commoners and put her body on fire.
All Japanese Killers avoided punishment somehow. How on earth did they do that to the Empress of a country?
Even Japanese historian who found this report felt ashamed to release it on public.
Some people argue that this all happened because the Korean empire was weak. So does it mean that strong country has the right to take over the weak country? Does this mean that adults can take cookies from children? Would you pin the blame on the children because they are too weak to protect their cookies?
