Bak Jin (Hangul박진; Hanja朴晉, 25 August 1560 – March 1597), also known as Park Jin, was a Korean Joseon Dynasty Army general and politician. He was one of the Korean generals of the Imjin War.[1]

Battle of Kyongju[edit]

During the Imjin War, Bak Jin fought to recapture the city of Kyongju from the Japanese invaders. His first attack was repelled, but he returned with a mortar and fired a delayed-action bomb over the wall. The Japanese evacuated the city rather than defend it against such mortars.[2]
