ABSTRACT

This article looked at why wiman joseon was valued in samgukyusa. In wiman joseon section of samgukyusa, the contents of hanseo are abbreviated in a way that highlights wiman joseon. In addition, ilyeon described wiman joseon in a friendly way that did not address the fact that king jun was a descendant of jizi and that jizi had enlightened old joseon society. The reason why ilyeon paid attention to wiman joseon was not only because wiman joseon succeeded the old joseon founded by dangunwanggeom, but also because it was a country closely related to various members of golyeo such as silla, gogulyeo, and buyeo. Wiman joseon, like the old joseon, is a country that has been capitalized in pyungyang and used the name dangunwanggeom as the city name, within samgukyusa, dangunwanggeom is the founder of joseon, and wiman is described as a person who greatly expanded the territory of joseon. It can also be inferred that ilyeon regarded wiman as a person of old joseon who was enshrined in the yan dynasty and he wanted to reveal that wiman was a figure related to our east. Ilyeon wanted to say that through the common ground of yan, silla was a descendant of joseon in blood. An article in which residents of nakrang and daebang surrendered to silla suggested that the residents of joseon had moved to silla. Through the relationship between silla and wiman joseon, ilyeon wanted to suggest that silla was the successor to the old joseon founded by dangunwanggeom, not china. samgukyusa described both buyeo and gogulyeo as having been established in the liaodong area. It can be seen that ilyeon recognized that buyeo and gogulyeo also came from the same area as wiman joseon and silla, given that the liaodong area was part of yan at the zhanguo-shidai period. In samgukyusa, wiman joseon is acting as a link to explain that gogulyeo and silla are both from the old joseon. Through wiman joseon, ilyon wanted to present that dangunwanggeom was the founder of all members of golyeo, thereby lowering the weight of jizi and noting to wiman joseon.
