Korea under Japanese rule
Korea under Japanese rule or Japanese ruled in Korea is a term to define Korea when it was under Japanese control. Japan controlled Korea for 35 years during a time that is referred to as Japanese Imperialist Expansion. The Japanese control of Korea lasted from 22 August 1910 until 15 August 1945. The Japanese rulers of Korea left the country on 2 September 1945. In Japan, the more common term is "Korea of the Japanese-Governed Period" (日本統治時代の朝鮮, Nippon Tōchi-jidai no Chosen).
The period is usually divided into three parts. In 1910-1919, the Japanese treated Koreans very badly. From 1919 to 1930-s they created better policies to deal with the Korean people. Later, they tried to force them to become Japanese.
