Korea, which had for many centuries been regarded as a subject kingdom by China and had been closed to foreigners, entered into treaty relations with Japan in 1876. Between 1882 and 1886 treaty relations with the United States of America, Great Britain, Germany, Italy, Russia and France were established. After the Russo-Japanese war of 1904–05 Korea was virtually a Japanese protectorate until its annexation by Japan as a result of a formal treaty between the two countries on 22 Aug., 1910.
