Ahn Joong Geun Biography - by Jong Bhak Ahn Joong Geun in Media

Preface

Although he was Korean general fighting against imperilist Japan in early 1900s, he had a broad vision of the world peace including Asian peace and unity. He was a learned man with an impressive integerity and is a model figure as a partriot and pacifist in Korea. His vision of the Pan Asian peace was passionate and practical enough to decide to assassinate the master mind of Japanese imperialism in the East. He stopped him. Unfortunately, the world did not pay attension enough to understand the political disaster coming to happen in Far East among Russia, Japan, China, and Korea. Eventually, Japan invaded Pearl Harbour and committed unfathomable scale of cruelty and towards other Asians and her own people, the Japanese. It also led to nuclear bomb attack by US.

It is particularly poignant as he wanted peace for Japan and in a way he did what he did for Japanese people as well.

He knew any suppression of other nations and people would lead all of us to wars and disasters. He fought against that and the first step was to keep his country independent. He failed and it was the failure of all of us, the Japanese, the Korean, and the Chinese.
