This chapter examines the perspectives of Spanish travelers on colonialKorea, with a primary focus on the accounts of two writers who held opposing ideologies and presented contrasting views on the Japanese occupation of Korea. Introducing these two testimonies together suggest that in certain cases, accounts about EastAsia were influenced more by the personal beliefs of their authors rather than by otherdiscourses or ideas prevalent during the period.
