L’ambientazione è tanto cara in quest’epoca in cui in Oriente si è ricominciato a fare i conti con la storia passata, siamo in Corea negli anni trenta sotto una delle peggiori egemonia di uno stato occupante, il Giappone, che per venti anni ha perseguito l’idea della soppressione della cultura della penisola asiatica. C’è ovviamente la missione di un gruppo di indipendentisti, c’è il traditore…

This Woman Came Back From the Dead to Spite the Husband Who Paid to Have Her Murdered
Noela Rukundo lived happily in Australia with her husband Balenga Kalala until she left to visit the country of Burundi where she grew up for her stepmother’s funeral.
In Burundi, she stepped out for some air after finishing a phone call with her loving husband to meet a man with a gun pointed at her. Under the threat of death, she did what he told her to do and was taken to a secluded place where her kidnappers met with other gang members. Fortunately for her, the hitmen her husband sent to kill her were principled.
They told her they don’t kill women and children so after some theatrics over the phone, during which she heard her own husband command them to “Kill her” and the hitmen demanded more money and told him that she was dead.
With evidence from her would-be killers she headed home to crash her own funeral. She showed up right as mourning friends and family were leaving her husband’s home.
What kind of thing would you say to the person you love who tried to have you murdered? Rukundo just said, “Surprise! I’m still alive!”
Theodore Roosevelt survived an assassination attempt, was shot in the chest, and proceeded to deliver a 90 minute speech. He opened with: “Ladies and gentlemen, I don’t know whether you fully understand that I have just been shot, but it takes more than that to kill a Bull Moose.”
This is a specimen of the brain tissue of Charles Guiteau. He is best known as the assassin of President James A. Garfield of the USA.
While James Garfield was shot on July 2, 1881, he did not die until eleven weeks later. Most of his care was considered competent for the day, but his physicians rejected antiseptic technique, and if they hadn’t, it’s widely believed that Garfield would have survived. The exact cause of death was overwhelming infection, leading to rupture of the splenic artery.
His assassin was executed less than a year after his death, by hanging.

#3. Queen Victoria Powered Her Way Through a Succession of Murderous Lunatics
As the longest-reigning British monarch, Queen Victoria was an easy target to many disgruntled people. And thanks to several absurd malfunctions in her security detail, she did indeed have to deal with seven different attempts on her life, all by deranged individuals, most seemingly straight out of a goddamn circus.
Alright so President William Mckinley always wore a red carnation on his lapel for good luck and one day was greeting citizens and greeted this little girl and gave her his flower and then got shot literally seconds later and can we just talk about how that little girl must have felt later like “golly gee i killed the president”
