I have found the wrong information of ‘Japanese occupation of Korea’, it was written ‘from the middle 1880s until 1945.’ But in fact the period of Japanese occupation of Korea was from 1910 -1945, for 35years. Please correct this, thank you.

Thank you for your comment.
Indeed the formal occupation of Korea by Japan began in 1910 with Japan-Korea Annexation Treaty. However, there were Japanese influences on Korean culture from the the late 1800s, particularly following the Japan–Korea Treaty of 1876. The article is referring to Japanese influence and not specifically the era of Japanese occupation. The text will be revised to clarify this point.
Thank you again for taking the time to help make NWE a valuable information resource.
