Battle of KyongjuEdit

During the Imjin War, Bak Jin fought to recapture the city of Kyongju from the Japanese invaders. His first attack was repelled, but he returned with a mortar and fired a delayed-action bomb over the wall. The Japanese evacuated the city rather than defend it against such mortars.[2]
