The Imjin Wars themselves drummed up nationalism in both Korea and Japan2. However for Korea in particular Yi was a potent symbol (Yi Sun-shin 1998). One reason for his importance is that during his life he was not treated well by the Choson government. After fighting off the first Japanese invasion Yi was arrested and demoted to the lowest level in the military. Even after his humiliation and demotion at the hands of the government that he had saved he served devotedly in his station (Yi Sun-shin 1998). Perhaps this was due to his confucian ethic or maybe it was due to his personal nationalism and loyalty to the Korean state “Since that response was also redolent of Korean patriarchy and a host of prevailing social values as well as martial spirit and actually succeeded in driving off the invader, it was to earn him even greater accolades as a savior of his nation” (Gilbert, 2017). Yi’s status has also caused an annual festival to be held at the headquarters of the Korean navy to commemorate admiral Yi’s accomplishments and to celebrate the blossoming of the cherry trees (Gilbert, 2017). Admiral Yi also has a national shrine that is 342,112 square meters. There are also several statues of Yi Sun-shin in south Korea, the largest is in downtown Seoul (Gilbert, 2017). Based on his presence today it is clear to see that Yi had a lasting impact on Korean nationalism.

Korean and other Asian women were assigned to lower-ranking soldiers, while Japanese and European women were reserved for higher-ranking officers (Watanabe). This obviously portrays the condescending attitude the Japanese had toward Koreans.

The year is 1950 and it is June 25th. Pvt. Brian Dexter is just an American grunt, all he does in the military is follow orders of his superiors. He joined the army in 1940, just before Korea was liberated by the Russian communists after being forced to fight with Japan in the 1930s and 40s. Pvt.
