Shenyang is the largest city in the north-eastern region of China, and serves as the capital city of Liaoning Province. This city is the gateway toward the Manchurian section of China, rich in untapped natural resources.

Manchurians are ethnically different from Chinese, even though most of them claim to be Han (pure) Chinese these days. Russians and Japanese attempted to control this city from 1895 to 1945. Since Manchurians and Koreans share the same ethnic root, there are many Koreans in this city and surrounding areas.
