KIS Guangjae (광제호,廣濟號) is the second battleship of the Korean Empire Armed Forces. It was operated by the Korean Empire. The first battleship, the KIS Yangmu, was inefficient for use in warfare as the ship was previously a cargo ship. The ship's captain was Sin Sun-seong, who studied naval science in Tokyo, Japan. The ship was forced to decommission by the Japan-Korea Treaty of 1905. It was finally used for transportation of coals from 1941 until Korea was freed from Japan.
