Park Jong-yang(korean:박정양, hanja:朴定陽, 1841–1904) was a Korean Joseon dynasty politician and edification[clarification needed] activist.[1] a member of independence club(독립협회;獨立協會) and People's joint association(만민공동회;萬民共同會). also a member for Party of Kaehwa, his family was Pannam Park clan.[2] Park Jong-yang was dispatched by Korean King to be the ambassador to the United States in 1887. He went to United States and caused an international outcry from the Chinese Empire which viewed Korea as a vassal state. After many years' conflict, Park was punished and was pushed aside. This episode reveals Korea's desire for complete independence, but demonstrates China's plan to stick to the traditional tributary tie. Park became a victim of this conflict. Park was also the author of a few books.
