The Japan-Korea Treaty of 1910, also known as the Japan-Korea Annexation Treaty, was made by representatives of the Empire of Japan and the Korean Empire in 1910. Negotiations were concluded on August 20, 1910. The document was signed on August 22, 1910. The treaty was proclaimed to the public on August 29, officially starting the period of Japanese rule in Korea. The treaty had eight articles, the first being: "His Majesty the Emperor of Korea makes the complete and permanent cession to His Majesty the Emperor of Japan of all rights of sovereignty over the whole of Korea." In modern Korea, the treaty is also commonly called "Hanil Hapbang Neugyak," which simply means a coerced treaty of Korea's annexation to Japan. The event itself is also called "Gyeongsul Gukchi," which means "the humiliation of the nation in 1910." The day it happened, August 29, is remembered today as "Gukchi-il," that is, "the day of national shame."show more
