One must not record that which he wishes to hide.”
-February 28, 1616

The tyrant of the century, or the tragic monarch?
History remembers one king with two faces.

Gwang-hae was the fifteenth king of the Chosun dynasty.

Though the threat of assassination and conspiracy made him a tyrant,
Secret history indicates that out of the fifteen years of rule,
Gwanghae was a good and wise king for fifteen days.

He ensured the safety of the palace’s most lowly servants
And lamented the fate of the kingdom’s slaves and concubines.
Rather than protect his throne, he worried for the people’s livelihood.

He was the King that the people of Chosun had always dreamt of.

But on February 28, 1616
Gwanghae left the following entry in his journal:

“One must not record that which he wishes to hide.”

And 15 days from the Annals of the Chosun Dynasty disappeared forever.
