short range

the Japanese found little success, being confined mainly to Gyeongsang Province and only managing numerous short-range attacks as they found that the Korean defenders were much more prepared this time around. Aside from a brief period in the early Autumn of 97, Japan would mainly be on the defensive and locked in at Gyeongsang province. The Japanese planned to attack Jeolla Province (Jeollanam-do) in the southwestern part of the peninsula and eventually occupy Jeonju, the provincial capital. Korean success in the Siege of Jinju (Siege of Jinju (1593)) in 1592 had saved this area from further devastation during the first invasion. Two Japanese armies, under Mōri Hidemoto and Ukita Hideie, began the assault in Busan and marched towards Jeonju, taking Sacheon and Changpyong along the way.
