SUPPLEMENTAL FORM - 32 MOVEMENTS
Chung-Gun is named after the patriot Ahn Chung-Gun, who assassinated the first Japanese Governor-General of Korea and who was martyred in prison in 1910. It has 32 movements to commemorate his untimely death at the age of 32.
In the late 1800s to the early 1900s, Korea was in the middle of a power struggle between Japan, Russia & China. In 1904 Japan prevailed and laid claim to Korea. Japan’s first action was to establish a provisional government with Hiro Bumi Ito as the first resident general. His first act was to force the weak Korean government to sign the Protectorate Treaty on November 19, 1905. This act allowed Ito to assign commissioners to govern provinces, force foreign powers to leave the peninsula, siege land, force Emperor Ko-Jong to abdicate, sell Korean territory to foreign governments, control over prisons & courts, disband the local police & army. Ahn Chung-Gun was born in the town of Hae-Ju, in the Hwang-Hae Province in 1879. He was a renowned educator and was credited for starting the Sam-Heung (3 Successes) School. Though raised as an educator, he became a guerrilla leader to fight the Japanese occupation. Based in Manchuria, Ahn Chung-Gun saw an opportunity to assassinate Ito. Knowing he had only one chance and that he would never escape alive, Ahn shot Ito as he was stepping off the train on October 26, 1909 at Harbin train station. Ahn was captured by the Japanese and imprisoned at Port Arthur. Ahn spent five months in prison enduring barbaric torture. Despite harsh treatment, his spirit never broke. He found enough energy to write “The Best Rivers & Mountains,” a calligraphy expressing why he felt his country was the most beautiful on Earth. On March 26, 1910, Ahn was executed at Lui-Shung prison.
