The Chinese Manchu Conquer Korean Peninsula
Manchu armies from China conquered Korea in the 1630's, but left the Yi family on the throne.  However, they required the Koreans to pay tribute (make payments) to them over the next 200 plus years. 

The Koreans would go on to have contact only with the Chinese during this time.
