Why does the government forbid the destruction of a stone monument in the Korean capital, which is considered a “national shame” by the Korean people?

Because at that time, it was Huang Taiji who forced his way into Korea and asked the King of Korea to erect a stone monument in honor of the Qing Dynasty, which to the Korean people was a symbol of shame.

The Korean peninsula is deeply affected by history because it is right next to our country, and whenever we encounter a powerful dynasty, then the countries above the Korean peninsula need to pay tribute to the Chinese country.

This is not a joke to black Korea, the Tang Dynasty’s expedition to Goguryeo was to fight Korea and South Korea, and the Qing Dynasty even left its mark directly on the place it occupied.

In Seoul, the capital of South Korea, there is a huge stone monument, the stone is very strange, although it is in South Korea, but on the top of the carved Chinese, Manchu, Mongolian three languages, and the name is also very strange, called “Qing emperor merit monument”.

The Korean people do not have any good feeling for this stone monument, although it has been standing here for nearly 400 years history is considered a cultural relic, but it is a pillar of shame for Korea, and listen to the reason.

In ancient times, when Korea and Korea were not separated, Korea was frequently attacked by several dynasties in China, most notably the Qing Dynasty.

In 1636, Huang Taiji began to attack the Joseon Dynasty in order to expand his territory, and finally reached the heart of the Joseon Dynasty – Seoul.

With Huang Taiji’s two expeditions to Joseon, King Li 倧 of Joseon reluctantly surrendered, willing to remain subservient to the Qing and pay tribute to the Qing every year, even his own prince was required to send one to Shenyang to be used as a hostage.

Before that was all, when the King of Joseon was willing to surrender, Huang Taiji’s minister asked Li 倧 to make a stone tablet to prove that Joseon was willing to bow down and to extol Huang Taiji’s virtues.

This is why the stone tablet was inscribed in Chinese, Manchu and Mongolian, and the Joseon ministers were still reluctant to do so, and were ashamed to have their words carved on it.

The construction of such a monument was already humiliating enough, but later the Qing dynasty would bring people to visit it every time they came to Joseon, which made the people of Joseon want to eat the monument, but they could only stop due to the strength of the Qing army.

It is worth mentioning that the king at that time and the king behind him, in order to worry about his subjects destroying the steles, was blamed by the Qing court, and finally ordered the army to guard the area, which was really dutiful.

However, such a monument was lost along with the Qing dynasty, and after the Sino-Japanese War, Joseon became a colony of Japan after breaking away from the Qing dynasty.

Since Joseon was already a Japanese colony, the steles, which were a symbol of shame, were torn down and thrown away by the Japanese.

But was this the end of the story? Naturally not, in 1913, the stone tablet was dug up for no reason at all, it was also a cultural relic, but it was a symbol of shame, so it was neither thrown away nor thrown away.

In the end, after 40 years, the Korean officials announced that they were going to bury the monument again, and it sank into the ground.

But even more coincidentally, after another 20 years, the monument was inexplicably washed out by a flood and came back into the Korean eyes again.

This time, the Korean authorities had no choice but to protect the monument, and if it was buried again, it might appear again sometime in the future.

In the end the monument was sent to the Songpa district of Seoul, the capital of South Korea, for people to visit, but most of the people who went to watch the monument ended up destroying it, still considering it a disgrace to the Korean nation.

Later, the officials removed the depiction of the King of Joseon kneeling to the Emperor Taeji from the monument, and it was only after that that the monument was treated a little better.

I don’t know how those who think their nation is invincible would feel after seeing this monument.
