A man bows toward the statue of independence fighter Lee Bong-chang at Hyochang Park in Seoul's Yongsan Ward on Jan. 8, 2016, to mark the 84th anniversary of Lee's patriotic actions against Japanese imperialism.

In 1932, Lee Bong-chang threw a grenade toward Japanese Emperor Hirohito in a failed assassination attempt in Tokyo before being captured and hanged the same year. The Korean Peninsula was under Japanese colonial rule from 1910 to 1945.
