Korean name
Hangul 이광렬 요한
Revised Romanization I Gwang-ryeol Yohan
McCune–Reischauer Yi Kwangnyŏl Yohan

John Baptist Y (이광렬 요한) (c. 1800 – July 20, 1839) was one of the 103 Korean Martyrs. John embraced Roman Catholicism with his elder brother when he was 28 years old. His fervor attracted the attention of the catechists, who sent him to Beijing to negotiate affairs of religion. The priests of the capital, in admiration of his piety, conferred upon him baptism and the other sacraments. John Baptist, after his return to his country, abstained from flesh meat during the rest of his life, and made resolution to live in celibacy. He was noted for his holy exterior appearance. He was martyred at the age of 39, severely tortured with torturing instruments and at last beheaded with an axe.[1][2]
