The ugly truth, the whole truth, of the Ulmi Incident 107 years ago has been revealed for the first time. The last Queen of Korea was stripped naked, her genitals fondled, raped, and then burned alive by her Japanese assassins.

All books on Korean history say that the last Queen of Korea was murdered by the Japanese and that her corpse was burned. A recent archive uncovered in Japan shows that this was not what happened. The Korean Queen was stripped naked, her genitals fondled and then raped by the Japanese before she was set on fire.

The story of the Queen's murder in the history books is what the Japanese would want the world believe and yet the Korean historians have shamelessly accepted it as a Gospel. Even after the Japanese archive on the whole truth of the Empress' death was reported on OhMyNews, there has been virtually no inquiry on the story. No major news organs in either North or South Korea have picked up this astonishing discovery.

In the waning days of the Yi dynasty, hordes of jobless drifters and street brigands crossed the channel from Japan to the Land of Opportunity. These scum of the Japanese society (낭인 浪人 - rohnin in Japanese) found odd jobs with the decaying ruling class of Korea. Some of these Japanese drifters were involved in the rape and murder of the Queen and one of them sent a detailed account of the incident to the Japanese government.

This report was discovered by a Japanese historian in 1966, some 71 years after her rape and murder. The document became known as the Ei-joh (英臟) report. Consequently, some Japanese historians passed around a doctored version of Ei-joh's account, according to which the Queen was stripped, killed and raped. Even though some Korean historians knew about the existence of this report, shockingly, none had read the complete text of the report until now.

Who filed the Ei-joh Report?

In the early hours of October 8, 1895, a group of Japanese military, diplomats, journalists, residents and drifters began Operation Fox Hunt, the objective of which was to eliminate the Korean Queen who stood in the way of the Japanese annexation of Korea. The assassins infiltrated the Gyongbok Palace with little difficulty because the Palace was under Japanese protection.

King Kojong bitterly protested the Japanese intrusion into his private quarters but he was pushed down by the Japanese. The Prince came to his father's rescue but the young man was thrown on the floor by his hair and was beaten with a sword. The Queen was molested and burned right on the palace ground.

At 9:30 am, Maj. Niiro sent a secret cable to the Japanese Army Chief of Staff: the top secret cable read - "Queen dead and King safe." The cable signaled the successful execution of Operation Fox Hunt. This shows that the order to kill the Queen came from the top.

The official version of the Queen's murder reads: "A group of Japanese soldiers killed the Queen and burned her body." This is about all we knew about the Ulmi Incident (乙未事變) until the Eijoh report was disclosed in full for the first time. The report was dispatched on October 9, 1895, the day after the Queen was killed. Isujuka Eijoh (石塚英藏) was the author. He worked as a consultant to the Korean ministry of interior at the time and sent an eyewitness account of the murder to Suehmatsu Kanejuma ((末松謙澄), the Japanese Minister of Justice apparently hoping that the incident would be investigated and the guilty parties punished.

Who was Isujuka Eijoh?

He was one of the Japanese drifters involved in the Queen's rape and murder. He was about 20 at the time and was at the scene and witnessed the demise of the Queen. He claimed to be an advisor to the Korean Ministry of Interior but in reality, he did not receive any wage or had any official function. In those days, Japanese drifters did odd jobs and gave themselves fancy titles. Eijoj's claim that he was at the murder scene was verified by Sunoda Husako (角田房子), a noted Japanese author of the "Murder of the Last Queen of Korea."

Why did Eijoh report his account of the murder to Minister Suehmasu? Husako states that Eijoh had worked for Suehmasu as an assistant before coming to Korea. Miura Koro (三浦梧樓), the Japanese Consul in Seoul, was the ring leader of the assassins. Eijoh's apparent intent was to tell Minister Suehmasu what had actually happened so that the perpetrators of the crime, including Miura, would be punished. Eijoh disputes many of the findings of the Uchida investigation report of the Queen's murder and the trial records of the Hiroshima court that went through the motion of trying the criminals.

How was Eijoh's report discovered?

The Eijoh report had remained hidden for 70 years until a Japanese historian, Ahmabe Gentaro (1905-1977) discovered it and referred to it in his book the History of the Japan-Korea Merger in 1966. However, he stated that the Queen was 'molested' after her death. Ahmabe's book was noticed in Korea some 16 years after its publication when Ahn Byong Bu, a theology scholar, translated it into Korean and published it. The book states that "During the night of October 7, 1895 and early next morning, while the Korean Army in training guarded Daewong-gun, a group of Japanese guards and drifters invaded the Palace wielding swords. They killed the Queen, sexually molested her corpse and then burned it."

It is clear that the book's account of the Queen's murder was based on Eojoh's report but there is no reference to the report. Ahmabe disclosed the existence of Eijoh's report for the first time in September 1966 when his book The Japanese Annexation of Korea was published by a pro-North publishing house, because of which the book was banned in South Korea. Although some historians in Japan have alluded to 'sexual molestation' of the Queen, none of them has mentioned the Eijoh report, the main source of the 'molestation' account.

Sunoda Husako's book, The Assassination of the Last Queen of Korea, briefly refers to the Eijoh report. Her book was published in 1988 and a few months later, it was translated into Korean by Chosun Ilbo. Husako quotes from Eijoh's report: "In particular, some Japanese performed disgusting acts with the Queen's body. I had worked for the Justice Ministry of Japan and am now an adviser to the Korean Ministry of Interior. It is extremely difficult for me to describe what happened to the Queen." But Husako did not mention what was troubling Eojoh so much.

Strange though it may sound, no Korean historian has attempted to obtain the full text of Eijoh's report. They accepted what was reported by the Japanese writers who had little to gain but domestic criticism to disclose the whole truth.

How was the full text of Eijoh's report obtained?

Kim Jin Myong, a Korean author of historical novels, was researching the killing of the Queen when he ran into Husako's book, The Assassination of the Last Queen of Korea. Kim suspected that Husako was hiding some facts and contacted Prof. Kim Un Suk, who had translated the book into Korean. Prof. Kim contacted Husako and obtained several references. Kim Jin Myong went to Japan to track down the references but none of them had the full text of Eijoh's report. Husako begged off blaming her faulty memory. Frustrated Kim Jin Myong gave up and returned home. But before leaving Japan, he looked up a friend, Kwon Yong Suk, a student of the history of Japan's foreign affairs, to look for Eijoh's report.

Sometime later, Kwon sent Kim several books and other documents on the Queen's murder. Kendaro's Japan's Annexation of Korea was among the books Kwon shipped. The book briefly refers to 'molestation' of the Queen by the Japanese but no details. But, to Kim's utter surprise, on page 223 of the book, Kendaro tells where to find Eijoh's report! "국립국회도서관(國立國會圖書館) 헌정자료실(憲政資料室) 장(藏) <헌정사편찬회문서(憲政史編纂會文書)>" - The Japanese National Diet Library, Constitutional Government Collection Gallery, Historical Documents Section. There it was - Kendaro told the world where Eijoh's report is kept but no Korean historian has noticed it. It took Kim Jin Myong, a fiction writer, to track down Eijoh's report, one of the most significant documents in Korea's modern history.

Kim Jin Myong called up his friend Kwon in Japan and asked him to make a copy of Eijoh's report. Kwon had not problem locating the document and faxed a copy to Kim. Thus Eijoh's report returned to its place of origin after 107 years.

What is in Eijoh's Report?

The report is 12-pages long, consisting of several sections: the plot, the plotters, the assassins, the acts and so on. Eijoh states that Miura, the Japanese Consul, was the chief instigator of the plot and suggests that Miura should be punished for his criminal acts and dereliction of his duty to uphold the law.

Eijoh's report was written more than a century ago and uses Japanese words that are no longer in use today. Korean translators found it difficult to translate accurately. It turned out that Kim Ung Yong, a Korean historian in Japan, wrote a book, Japan's Annexation of Korea from Diplomatic Documents, published in 1996. This book cited about 10 percent of Eijoh's report.

Kim Ung Young wrote: "Eijoh wrote in his preface that the Queen's murder was planned far in advance by the Japanese in Korea. Miura, the Japanese Consul, thought about killing the Queen for a long time. Eijoh states that the Japanese guards of the Palace played the main role in the killing. He describes in detail how the Queen was murdered and sexually molested. The assassins brought in foreigners to view the murder scene and got into verbal fights with some of the foreigners." So, Kim, too, was reciting what the Japanese had said.

Eijoh's report indicates that the Queen was still alive when she was doused with oil and set on fire. She was sexually molested by the Japanese assassins. Shown at the left is the part of Eijoh's report that describes the murder. It reads:

"We rushed deep into the royal chamber and dragged out the Queen. We stabbed her several times and stripped her stark naked. We examined her genitals (we could laugh or cry in anger) and then poured oil on her body and set her on fire."

Eijoh states that the Queen was stabbed several times, sexually molested and then burned. Eijoh does not mention the Queen was killed before she was set on fire. Eijoh's account is partially corroborated by Korean testimonies that claim that the Queen was stomped on the chest and then knifed. But the Korean accounts do not mention that she was stripped naked and molested. None of the Korean 'witnesses' had actually witnessed the murder and their accounts were second-hand or third-hand.

The Japanese historians have attempted to distort this barbaric crime by hiding the full text of Eijoh's report and claiming that the Queen was already dead when she was sexually molested and burned. Eijoh's report suggests strongly that the Queen was wounded, stripped naked, sexually molested and then set on fire - while still alive.

The Korean people hold the Japanese people accountable for this crime of the century and let the whole world know how savage the Japanese can be. "Don't ever forget how I was killed by the Japanese!" rings out our Queen's voice loud to any one claiming to be a Korean.
