The Mihang castle(未降城) in Amnok river(鴨綠水) north of status data of Samkooksaki(三國史記) jiliji(地理志) and route of force immigration tell us resistance was strong in the Region of Liaodong. Nearly 13 million of force immigration on a large scale prompted the resistance of people of Koguryo. Kommojam(劍牟岑) was the key person of the resistance against Tang. He commanded the local military forces as local governor of Kungmo castle(窮牟城) before fall of Koguryo. Kommojam and people in Kungmo castle had been experienced in that combined through a military command system. This became the base that organized the movement of revival military forces of the former Koguryo. Kommojam invaded the fringeland of Tang. It means that Kommojam who took up arms in Liaodong Region and the displaced peoples of Koguryo to Liaoxi(遼西) Region combined. They had affinity in the way that came from Liaodong Region and had planned resistance movement through route of communication of Liaodong to Liaoxi. In response to this, Tang started to suppress Go Gan(高偘) and Lee Kun haeng(李謹行). Go Gan was dispatched to Liaodong, Lee Kun haeng was sent out to Liaoxi. Nevertheless, military activity of Koguryo people had continued to 672 in Liaodong and Liaoxi Region.
