Description: North & South Korea are headed for unification. In a symbolic gesture of their unity, the Gyeongeui Railroad is about to be reopened, which will traverse across the divided peninsula. Leaders from both countries come to the event to show their support for unification. Unfortunately, Japan fears the power of a unified Korea and objects adamantly. The Japanese claim that during the colonial period, when they occupied South Korea, Emperor Kojong of South Korea, signed a treaty with the Japanese, transferring ownership of the Gyeongeui Railroad to them. Japan has the treaty in their possession as proof, and they are willing to go to war over their claims of ownership. Japan quickly dispatches their naval fleet towards South Korea and Korea responds by sending their forces to the same area. While this occurs, a South Korean historian claims that the treaty that the Japanese holds, has no authority, because the stamp used by Emperor Kojong was not the authentic stamp of the Emperor. The historian claims that the Emperor used a fake stamp to sign such treaties, in hope that the world will see that he was coerced into signing such treaties. The professor must now prove his claim to the President of South Korea in a short amount of time to prevent all out war. Meanwhile, the President of South Korea waits for further proof on the professor?s claims, while battling the Prime Minister?s wishes to avoid unification with North Korea.
