Bits & Pieces of History; Mister Sunshine (미스터 션샤인) {Episode 21}


United States-Korea Treaty of 1882

Eugene Choi; “America will never help Joseon.”

This treaty although the first one Korea made with a Western nation was just another unequal treaty Joseon was pulled into. It mainly dealt with trade with Joseon and even though Joseon got a “friendship clause” it didn’t mean that United States would protect them from Japan. Unfortunate but true.
