ABSTRACT

At the outbreak of Revolt of the Three Feudatories in November 1673, Zhèng Jīng in Taiwan also responded and a large area south of the Yangtze river including Sichuan Province and Shǎnxī Province was under his rule. Then, a voice calling for invasion into Qing began to come to the stage in Chosun. They claimed that Chosun should cooperate with Zhèng Jīng to attack Quing, mainly because Ming helped Chosun in Japanese invasion of Chosun in 1592. However, their strong opinion was not accepted. Then, a rumor spread that Zhèng Jīng would attack disloyal Chosun. At that time, Dosun’s prophecy was in circulation that a leader named Jeong would govern Chosun. Zhèng Jīng happened to have that name and he had enough military power to destroy Chosun. Thus, Zhèng Jīng living in Taiwan was considered as a probable candidate for Jeong True Man, though he was a foreigner. In the same line of thought, Zhōu Wénmó, a Qing priest, and Truman, a US President, were considered as a True Man.
