Interesting post concerning Mutel but I am curious as to how accurate it is. There are several supposed instances in which Kojong, Min and the Taewon'gun were open to Christianity but for one reason or another never came to be. Some of these accounts appear to somewhat dubious.As to the phrase "while her husband was torturing priests and thousands of native [Catholic] Christians..." - is that correct? If memory serves me right, Taewon'gun basically held control until the early 1870s.I also enjoy reading your blog....
