実際は19世紀後半には日本の資本が入ってかなりいじくってますけどね。いい悪いは別にして。1896年には鉄道「京仁線 (ソウル~仁川)」38.9キロの鉄道敷設権を日本企業がアメリカ人モールスから買収して、1900年に全線開通させていたりとか。


Editorial note
Korea has always been called The Hermit Country.
Before the war between Russia and Japan, much of which was fought within the borders of Korea, this comparatively unknown land was seldom visited by travellers.

Its geographical position made the Russo-Japanese War inevitable, where Russia was in fourtified possession; she was so near to Japan in fact as to endanger its peace if Korea were to remain in Russian hands.

As a nation Korea was altogether without means of self-defence; consequently, in order to protect this country as well as itself, Japan, with the consent of China, maintained a protectorate over Korea.

Korea with Japan
With the hope of making Korea's independence a reality, Japan employed all the resources of friendly suggestion to induce the former to adopt modern civilized methods, to reform her corrupt administration, to reorganise her police system, and to strengthen her military defence, so as to be able to fulfil her treaty obligations.

Railroad, telegraphs and telephones
Although the Koreans boast an ancient civilization of their own, the country hither to possessed hardly any public roads, except the so-called "grand road" from Seoul to the Chinese border, and a few roads between the capitol and some provincial cities.

During the China-Japan War, the Seoul - Chemulpo highway was constructed by the Japanese army, and two trunk roads from Seoul to Wonsan and Wiju respectively were similarly made by the Japanese troops during the war with Russia.
In order to facilitate transportation, the Korean Government (as stated in the report for 1906) allotted 1,500,000 yen out of the Loan for public Undertakings to construct four roads; namely, one between Chinnanpo and Ping-yang; another form Tai-ku to Ya-nil Bay, by way of Kyang-ju; a third from Yonsan kang to Mok-po; and a fourth from Keun-kang to Kunsan.

Thus "finding it expedient from the standpoint of the administration and finances of Korea" the Government finally decided to transform the entire management of communications to Japanese control.

Industrial encouragement
The Korean Government appreciating the urgent advice of the Resident-general, established in 1906, three model forests in the mountains near Seoul, Ping-yang, and tai-ku.

Nothing is more than important for the advancement of material prosperity in Korea than to give the people every opportunity of improving the old fashioned methods of agriculture and industry.

For this purpose the Residency-general, established in June 1906, an Agricultural and Industrial Model Farm at Suwon, about twenty-five miles from Seoul at at cost of 168,520 yen.
そのために統監府はモデル農場をつくった。168,520 yenなり。

Sanitation and water works
A hospital and a medical school to promote vaccination were first established in 1897 under the advice of a Japanese, Dr. Kojo, and three years later, eighty-one medical students having graduated, they were distributed throughout the provinces, by a decree of the Home Department, issued on June 127, 1897.

The well-water in Korea towns is often a cause of epidemic diseases, owing to infilteration from stagnant drains and uncleaned necessaries.
In spite of the fact that water works for the large cities are thus of vital importance, attention was never seriously paid to the matter until the Japanese Municipal Council in Seoul held a meeting to discuss this subject on january 29, 1904, and decided to build a reservoir on Nam San, for the purpose of supplying the japanese settlement with water at a cost of 100,000 yen.

Meanwhile, in March, 1906, on the urgent advice of the Resident-General, the Korean Government decided to appropriate funds for water works out of the "Loan for Public Undertakings" and to apply them for the construction of water works at Chemulpo and Ping-yang, as well as to subsidise the water works at Fusan, which had already been commenced by the Japanese settlement there.

Prior to the China-Japan War, there was no real public school system in Korea, nor any institution for giving modern education.
In fact, education has never been regarded as a matter of public interest, but only as a private affair.

In accordance with the advice of the Resident-General, the Korean Government appropriated 500,000 yen out of the "Loan for Public Undertakings" in March, 1906, for the extension of education; 350,000 yean being alloted for improving normal schools, high schools, and foreign language schools.

I have seen the videos.
The annexation song is quite funny, at the beginning it sounds a little ridiculous, but after few secondes, it's not bad.
Unfortunately, the englishsubttiles on the second video are very small, it's impossible to read them, and I havn't figure how to display them bigger.
The third video is quite good,not too long and I will create a post on my blog with this video, thank you.
The 4th is not subtitled, it also seems to long according for the informations it gives.
