This chapter focuses on the events that occurred within Tonghak following the failure of the 1894 uprising up to the final ascension of Son Pyŏng-hŭi as its supreme leader in 1900. The failure of the rebellion marked the beginning of a period of disorganization, persecution, and difficulty for the movement that required a great deal of effort on the part of its leadership to overcome. The 1894 uprising was rarely viewed in the positive light that it is today by Ch'ŏndogyo authorities, and it was not until the early 1930s that Ch'ŏndogyo began to emphasize the positive aspects of the Tonghak rebellion and to see its value as an example of a nationalist popular movement. Additionally, Tonghak's influence on other religious and social movements around this period is also discussed.

Keywords:   1894 rebellion, Son Pyŏng-hŭi, Tonghak, nationalist popular movement, religious movements, social movements
