ABSTRACT

There have been many studies conducted on the subject of how the Hwangsŏng sinmun attempted to use its articles to get the Korean population to support the notion of the forging of an alliance with Japan that was based on the notion of Samguk kongyŏngron (the formation of an alliance between Korea, Japan, and China designed to achieve coprosperity).1 These previous studies have tended to point out the fact that the Hwangsŏng sinmun focused exclusively on the crisis aspect of the Yongamp΄o Incident which occurred prior to the outbreak of the RussoJapanese War, and that the newspaper did not show any signs of leaning towards Japan until articles began to appear calling for the establishment of a Russian sphere of influence in Manchuria in exchange for the latter’s acquiescence of a similar Japanese sphere in Korea in September (Manhwan kyohwansŏl); moreover, they have pointed out that articles calling for Korea’s implementation of the chakangron (self-strengthening) in order to avoid having to become overly dependent on either Japan and Russia appeared on a consistent basis in 1903.
