Abstract

The development of nationalism in Korea received its greatest impetus during the latter part of the nineteenth century through the activities of the Independence Club. The Club sought both to foster a new nationalistic consciousness in the Korean population, by invoking among the citizenry a strong emotional attachment to the state, and to create an ideology befitting Korea's new nation-state status. Due, perhaps, to the Club's relatively brief existence, its emotional impact was greater and more lasting than its ideological one. However, the sentiment of patriotism which the Club was instrumental in nurturing played a vital role in the development of Korean nationalism in the twentieth century.
