How did Ryu Gwan Sun die?
Yu Gwan Sun’s death was meaningful though she never saw the independence of Korea. The independence movement lasted for about one month, with about 2 million people participating in the movement. During the protests, the Japanese killed more than 7,000 people. While the Korean people failed to regain independence through these protests, they succeeded in showing the world a strong will for independence.
Ryu Gwansun , also known as Yu Gwansun or Yoo Kwan-Soon, was an organizer in what would come to be known as the March 1st Movement against the Japanese colonial rule of Korea in South Chungcheong.
