작품설명

Musket “JoChong鳥銃” was named after its capability to shoot down a flying bird. JoChong uses matchclock to gunpowder to shoot the bullet. Before the birth of JoChong, small fire arms were small canons which had very low accuracy because of unability to aim. Musket “JoChong” uses trigger to trig the matchclock to set the gunpowder fire to shoot the bullet so it improved the aiming and therefore the accuracy.

Musket had great range and penetration power made itself a lethal weapon and can train soldiers quickly and easily. Prime minister Heojeok during the King SukJong’s era once mentioned that three year old children with musket can kill strong adults and that’s what it makes such a great weapon. However, it has its shortcomings in terms of production costs, delays and rain caused mis-functions. Therefore to complement the shortcomings, sword and bow were used. Two invasions from Japan and Qing of China respectively, JoSeon dynasty put so much effort for weapon development especially more powerful gunpowder weapons. After the direct invasion attempts from the West in 1860s, the imitation and copying of Western style weapons started.
