This paper briefly describes the characteristics of the Korean independence movement and the resistance of the Korean people against Japan's invasion and rule of Korea from the end of the 19th century to the beginning of the 20th century, and in particular, for about 50 years from 1895 to 1945. Given that the Polish people once lost their country for as many as 123 years from 1795 to 1918 and eventually regained the nation's independence after all sorts of hardships and a long time of struggles, it has great academic significance to compare the history of the Korean independence movement with the history of the Polish resistance and independence movement against the ruling of Russia, Germany and Austria.(fragment of text)
