Photographer's Note

In 1866, Korea and France fought for the first time here. France was very angry at the massacre and suppression of Catholics in Joseon(Old Korea). France invaded Ganghwado Island to retaliate against the incident, making it the first Western-Korean battle. The French army looted many cultural assets of Joseon.
At that time, Joseon's ruling class thought Western civilization, religion, and Japan were all orangkae(barbaric outlander). Only China was recognized as a country. The idea was very biased.
