Nouvelles présentations des salles Choson et Empire de Corée

 

The “Three-Eyed Gun,” a relic from the Japanese Invasion into the Joseon Dynasty in 1592, features a unique shape. With its three holes, the gun allows firing three bullets at the same time. Back then, it was a product of cutting-edge technologies transferred from the military of the Ming Dynasty. The gun is a testimony to the fact that the Japanese invasion had a profound influence over the art of weaponry as well as the politics and economy of Joseon. The Three-Eyed Gun, which has been kept at the Gyeongju National Museum, will be displayed at the National Museum of Korea.
