These are just a few very famous Koreans from throughout history: a woman named Yu Kwan Sun was known as a famous fighter for independence in Korea, she was extremely young while doing this, around sixteen years of age. She attended Euha School for Girl’s which was located in Seoul, Korea. Returning to her home village for the summer months, she taught reading, geography and science lessons from the West, which differed greatly from the Chinese traditional education she was receiving.
The there is another famous name Korean, Queen Son Dok. She was the Silla ruler. This was just one kingdom out of three located in a peninsula. She was known to be the first female that was Korea’s Queen. Her Father never had any male children, whom should have inherited his throne and kingdom on his passing. So, Son Dok who was the eldest daughter became the Queen on her Fathers passing.
