A letter from a Japanese diplomat in North Korea 126 years ago was exposed by Japanese media a few days ago, causing public opinion in South Korea.

The diplomat is Ninety -thousand Mikou. He revealed to his friends that he had participated in the assassination of the Queen of North China (that is, the concubine of the king of Korean, the concubine of the Korean king).

The Korean academic community believes that this is a new clue of Japanese senior management involving the “B Incident” (also known as the “Min Fei Incident”), especially in the letter “(assassination) is simpler than expected”. The hearts of the Korean people.

South Korea’s public opinion said that the matter has always been a wound that the people of the peninsula have not been cured, but Japan regards it as “a history that has never happened at all.”

The assassination of the princess is “simpler than expected”

“We killed the princess” “Invasion into the palace is my task. Turning over the wall (medium) barely entered the Ao Yu Temple and killed the princess.” It is the relevant content disclosed in Japan’s “Asahi Shimbun” on November 16.



The new historical data of the “B Incident” was exposed after research.

It is reported that 90,000 Horikou (1865-1945), who was the assistant consul of the Embassy in the North Korea, was killed in detail in the letter from Min Fei to be killed the next day (October 9, 1895). The passage of Min Fei. At that time, he was a member of the assassination group consisting of Japanese diplomats, police and civilians.

In the early morning of October 8th, the assassination group assassinated Min Fei and burned the body. At that time, North Korea did not have the right to judge because of the signing of extraterrestrial legal terms in the unequal treaty with Japan. The 48 -member assassination group was sent back to Japan. In the end, the Hiroshima Court released everyone on the grounds of “insufficient evidence”.

In the 1930s, 90,000 Horikou reviewed the incident. At that time, he said that the Jun Li, the Jun of the Gaozong Father Xingxuan Xuanyuan, should be sent to him three “Uprising Poems” on the eve of the incident, revealing his coup at an attempt. However, in the newly discovered letters, Nine Nine Monthly confirmed that although there are poems, “obscure and difficult to understand what he is talking about.”

It is reported that this time it was discovered 8 letters retained by Horikou, with a time span from November 17, 1894 to October 18, 1895 after the “B In the Incident”. The receiver is Wu Shizhen, a friend of Nakaguchi 90,000.

These letters have been circulating, and Steve Hasegawa, a Japanese American, who lived in Nagoya, Japan, was discovered unexpectedly in the antique market. “Asahi Shimbun” states that considering the content of the letter record, postmark, sealing method, etc., it should be the autograph letter of 90,000 Tonkou.

Jin Wenzi, a South Korean historian who has been the book “The Princess of the Korean Princess and the Japanese”, appraised the content of the letter, saying that “it is indeed a handwriting and seal of Horikou 90,000, and the content is quite credible.” Jin Wenzi said that diplomats directly participated in the killing of the princess stationed in the country, which was shocking. Horikou’s 90,000 years after the incident, more than 40 years of speech was completely different from the letter in the letter.

Women left and right North Korea

In South Korea, historians have mixed Min Fei, but no one will deny that a princess of a king is killed by foreigners who broke into the palace, which is an unprecedented tragedy.

Photos of Mingcheng Queen published in the magazine “La Coree” discovered in France in 1975.

On November 17, 1851, Min was born in Lizhou, Gyeonggi Road. Her Xing Min became a Wang family in the Korean dynasty, and has been in a few prosperity in the Korean dynasty. In the family, the princess of the king of the Korean king Taizong Yuan Jing, the princess Renxian of Su Zong, and Min Weizhong.

Min Fei’s family is Renxian’s elder brother Min Zhen’s pulse. Min Fei’s grandfather Min Yixian has been sentenced to Cao Cao, his father Min Zhilu, and his father Min Zhilu was the Square Deutagraz County.

In 1858, Min Zhilu died, and Minjia’s road fell. In 1864, Zhezong had no concubine, and Li Xi, the 12 -year -old clan, was established as Gaozong. Two years later, Min was elected as the concubine of Gao Zong and married in 1866.

Li Xi (1852-1919), Gaozong, North Korea.

Li, who served as the regent, should take into account his wife and mother, who were born in Min Xing, and the father of Min’s father died early, and his family was weak.

Li should not expect that Min Fei would become his strongest opponent in the future. At that time, North Korea had internal and external problems. After the Meiji Restoration in Japan, it pressured North Korea to open the port, but failed because Li was a country that should be adopted. In 1873, Min Fei launched a coup on the grounds of “king’s pro -government”, and Li should be forced to go down. Foreign -keeping groups with Min’s Ceremony ruled North Korea and advertised the opening of the outside world.

In 1875, the Japanese warship “Yun Yang” invaded Jianghua Island and had a fire with the Korean army. The Japanese army captured Yongzong Town, forcing North Korea to sign an unequal “Jianghua Island Treaty” and opened the Gate of North Korea. North Korea’s anti -Japanese emotions continued to rise.


In 1882, the old North Korean army launched an uprising because of the long -term did not receive the army, coupled with the new troops trained by the Japanese. The people joined it, burned the Japanese embassies, overthrew the rule of Min Fei Group, and re -pushed Li Li to take the stage.

This incident is called “Renwu’s mutiny”, which eventually triggered the interference between China and Japan at the same time. More than a month later, Min Fei Group re -governed. Since then, Japan forced North Korea to sign an unequal treaty and be able to garrison in North Korea.

In 1884, North Korea’s “Jiashen coup”, which aims to escape from the Qing Dynasty and reform the internal affairs of the princes, and Min Fei asked the Qing army to calm down the coup. In Japan, Japan was attacked and the embassy was burned on the grounds of the North Korea.

In 1894, North Korea broke out with a peasant uprising led by the leader of Dongxuedao. The Korean dynasty begged the Qing Dynasty. After the Qing Army landed in Zhongqingnan Daoshan in order to suppress the uprising of the uprising, a large number of Japanese troops pretends to protect the embassies and the diaspora landing in Incheon. Considering the complex situation at home and abroad, Quan Qizhong agreed with the court to talk to the court, and eventually dissolved the uprising army. The Qing army did not contact the uprising army, and the uprising calmed down.

The North Korean government and the Qing government suggested that China and Japan withdrew their troops at the same time. Instead of not agreed, Japan also increased a large number of troops to North Korea, attacked Jingfu Palace, placed Gaozong under house arrest, dissolved the government controlled by Min Fei Group, and supported the pro -Japanese regime led by Li. On July 25, Japan provoked the Sino -Japanese War. With the defeat of the Qing Army, China and Japan signed the Maguan Treaty, and Japan completely controlled North Korea.

Japan’s expansion in North Korea and Northeast China made Tsarist Russia dissatisfied. Tsarist Russia has increased its penetration of North Korea through Mortar Minister Werber, and the confrontation between Japan and Russia gradually intensified in North Korea. Min Fei, who lost power, was cast to Russia, relying on Tsarist Russia forces to restrain Japan, and regained the regime again.

However, the fierce internal struggle of the North Korean ruling class is just the front desk of Japan and Russia for North Korea. In the early morning of October 8, 1895, the Japanese assassination group rushed into Jingfu Palace, controlled Gao Zong, and brutally killed Min Fei to burn his body. This woman who once had about North Korea had gone throughout her life.


In 1897, Gao Zong’s country was changed to the “Korean Empire”.

Make historical tragedy no longer repeat

Who planned the assassination? Who participated in it? How did the Queen of the Ming Dynasty be assassinated? Many details about the “Betish Incident” are still a mystery.

Report on the East Asian Daily in 1930.

For this incident, Japan and the Korean Peninsula have long been huge differences, especially for the masterminds.

“South Korea Ethnic Culture Encyclopedia” records: “B’s incident” is the commander of the Japanese ambassador to North Korea, which is only 37 days in the new one -year -old Japanese Minister, and the Japanese defenders stationed in Seoul (now Seoul) Action teams composed of journalists, Ronin, etc. They obeyed the instructions of Miura Wulou and attacked Jingfu Palace and killed Min’s. The incident was a secret from the beginning, and afterwards, the Japanese side completely destroyed historical materials and distorted the facts. Miura Wulou claimed that “the Jun Li of Xingxuan Courtyard should be the master of the incident, and the Korean military training team to kill the Queen of Mingcheng.” The real sinner was released by the Japanese official with insufficient evidence. Japanese reporters who have witnessed the incident also rendered the contradiction between Li is the contradiction between the Queen Ying and the Queen of the Ming Dynasty, and fabricated the modern history of the peninsula …

Koreans generally believe that “B’s Incident” is done in Japan. The historical textbook of South Korean middle school explained the incident: “The Queen of the Ming Dynasty was considered a figure that hindered Japan’s invasion of North Korea. The view of the “B Face” is basically the same as South Korea. Japan has long avoided this problem for a long time, and does not talk about how to dye the internal struggle of the Korean dynasty and then launch assassinations.

In recent years, South Korea has been looking for and disclosed the relevant evidence of the Japanese planning assassination. The American missionary Mrs. Andwood’s “Sessay of the North Korea” and the “fatter knife” with the words “A Instant Electric Stomatochemical Fox” was used to assassinate the Queen of Mingcheng and the scabbard …

With the disclosure of Nine Tonkou’s nine -thousand -kiss letter, people have tried to push away the door of historical truth again with this clue. Li Taizhen, a professor of Seoul University, chairman of the Korean National History Compilation Committee, said that the Japanese government had previously emphasized that the “B Incident” was led by Li. However, the content discovered this time showed that the Japanese diplomat at the time of Japan was at the scene and recorded the incident in detail, which proved that this was a criminal act at the Japanese national level.

South Korea’s “Korean National Daily” reported that in the past, many views believed that the assassination of the Empress Ming of the Ming Dynasty was the Lord of the Japanese Rogue, but recent facts have proved that Japanese officials, including the 90,000 diplomats including Hirokou, have played in the case. main effect.

This incident caused heated discussion on public opinion in South Korea. South Korea’s “East Asia Daily” pointed out that he hopes to discover the letter as an opportunity to completely identify the beginning and end of the assassination of the assassination before 126, especially how the Japanese government intervenes.

Expressing the art of the Queen of the Ming Dynasty.

Some media pointed out that even if it was a weak -meat -strong world at the time, it was a brutal act of anti -civilization to break into the king’s palace. The aggression war launched by Japan brought an indelible pain to Asia, and it was an unbearable criminal act.

Some netizens said: “Japanese diplomats actually kill the mother of other countries like a thief, and Japan must reflect on reflection and reflect on it.” “Whether it is past or now, only one country can get rid of humiliation. Children’s descendants “…


In Luzhou, Gyeonggi -do, South Korea, Queen Mingcheng lived to 8 years old. Now it is restored and converted into the former residence and memorial hall of the Ming Dynasty, attracting many tourists every year. Since its premiere in 1995, the large -scale original musical “Queen of the Ming Dynasty” has endlessly, becoming South Korea’s first musical work on Broadway in New York, USA and the stage of Western West District, UK.

People recall history in various ways. No matter how they think of the Queen of Ming Dynasty, letting the tragedy of history no longer repeat itself, it is what people expect.
