In Korea split, with conservatives wanting to retain a close relationship with China while reformists wanted Korea to modernize and to have a closer relationship with Japan. Following the assassination of a pro-Japanese reformist in 1894, a Korean religious sect, the Tonghak. Began the Tonghak Peasant Revolution.

The more modern Japanese army defeated the Chinese in a series of battles around Seoul and Pyongyang. Forcing them north, and by November 21 the Japanese had taken Port Arthur now known as Lushun.
