520    After Choson Korea was forced to open its ports in 1876 by
       Japan, Korea was incorporated into a regional East Asian 
       economy based on the unequal treaty system and predicated 
       on a structure of core and periphery relationships between
       the industrialized and industrializing nations. As the 
       first modern bank in Japan, Daiichi Bank was the first 
       Japanese bank to establish operations in the Korean open 
       ports. Daiichi was heavily dependent on its business in 
       Korea for survival, but it ultimately thrived within the 
       fierce competition of the time. Daiichi also demonstrated 
       the inherent contradiction of functioning as the erstwhile
       Korean central bank as well as a private commercial bank 
520    After annexation in 1910, Daiichi Bank transferred nearly 
       all of its operations into the Bank of Chosen. The 
       internal Japanese debate over the establishment of a stand
       -alone central bank between the Bank of Japan, Ministry of
       Finance, and colonial government established the Bank of 
       Chosen with a separate-but-equal yen currency which placed
       colonial Korea on the periphery and insulated Japan from 
       the Korean economy. Also, the Bank of Chosen aggressively 
       expanded into Manchuria to remedy the colonial 
       contradictions of a perpetual trade imbalance, but it also
       reinforced a new core-periphery relationship between 
       colonial Korea and the Manchuria. The post-WWI economic 
       crash, the 1923 Kanto Earthquake, and the 1927 Showa 
       Financial Crisis presented new challenges for the Bank of 
       Chosen which was forced to rely on a government-sponsored 
       rescue 
520    After 1945, the Bank of Chosen continued to play a pivotal
       role in the southern economy under American occupation 
       authority. Despite the internal power struggle between the
       Bank of Chosen and the Ministry of Finance over the 
       creation and independence of the South Korean central bank,
       the prominence and authority of the Bank of Chosen ensured
       continuity in the institution and personnel in the new 
       Bank of Korea. The histories of Daiichi Bank, the Bank of 
       Chosen, and the Bank of Korea thus demonstrate the 
       continuity and contingent adaptations of these 
       institutions with the demands of the state as they 
       traversed late nineteenth and early twentieth century 
       Korea, Japan, and Manchuria
