tragic era in Korean history.

In Korean history, 1907 was a period full of tragedy and chaos.

Japan annexed Korea and forced Emperor Gojong to abdicate the throne of Korea in June 1907

In July, Japanese forced to disband Armed forces of the Korean Empire.

The Korean Commander Park Seung-hwan wrote a note against the disbandment and committed suicide by shooting himself

Park's suicide enraged the soldiers and The Battle of Namdaemun against Japan was sparked to resist dissolution of the Korean army.

Many of Korean Empire Armies died or captured in Battle of Namdaemun.

I upholstered a chair with embroidered emblem of Korean Empire to commemorate our ancestors' sacrifice to save our country.

I digitally embroidered the emblem using Tajima DG/ML.
