Tokyo's good deed
During the period of their colonial rule, the Japanese treated the Koreans so brutally and inhumanely. I think the most humiliating to Koreans was to force them to change their names since one’s name symbolizes one’s roots and ancestry. Today, I’m delighted to read this article that the University of Tokyo has agreed to return to Korea 47 volumes of the Annals of the Joseon Dynasty that a colonial official took out of the country in 1913.
