The two Japanese invasions of Korea took place from 1592 to 1598. Toyotomi Hideyoshi led the newly unified Japan into the first invasion (1592–1596) with the professed goal of conquering Joseon Dynasty Korea, the Jurchens, and eventually Ming Dynasty China, and the European Merchants (Nanban, 南蛮). The second invasion (1597–1598) was aimed as a retaliatory offensive against Joseon Dynasty Korea and Ming Dynasty China as its ally. The invasions are also known as Hideyoshi's invasions of Korea, the Seven Year War (in reference to its span), the Imjin Waeran (Hangul: 임진왜란, Hanja: 壬辰倭亂 - lit. Japanese Invasion of the Imjin Year), in reference to the "Imjin (壬辰)" year of the sexagenary cycle in Korean, and Bunroku Keichō no eki (Japanese: 文禄・慶長の役).
