- I Yuk-sa took the decisive step of studying abroad in Japan in 1924. After he studied at Sun Yat-sen University, he returned to Korea in 1927, but was imprisoned after being implicated in the Patriotic Deed of Jang Jin-hong. From 1932, he went back and forth between Northeast China and Beijing, and entered in the first class of the Korean Revolutionary Military Political Cadre School which opened in Nanjing that year. The next July, he snuck into Korea but was apprehended and released while his indictment was delayed. In 1943, I Yuk-sa stayed at the Beijing residence of I Sang-ho, who managed a newspaper agency, and that same year was arrested while staying for a short time in Korea. He was deported to Beijing and imprisoned in the Japanese General Consulate Building where he died.
