ABSTRACT

The process of advancing into the Han River basin of King Jinheung of Silla ranges from the time of advancing into the Han River Basin in 551 to the Battle of Gwansanseong Fortress in 554. This can be referred to as ‘the Han River Military Campaign(한강 戰役[551-554])’ of that period. The two countries of Silla and Baekje would carry out surprise attacks to break up Goguryeo's defense system, using camouflage tactics and deception ones. At this time, Geochilbu(거칠부) played the most important role, and his experience of youth was very helpful for doing his duty. In 553, Silla took away Baekje's frontier area and set up Sinju(新州) which means new area of state. In the same year, Founding the Country(開國) and Sinju had a common aspect in that they were performed with the same goal of advancing into the Han River basin. In other words, it reflected King Jinheung's political ideal of ‘a new ju(신주)’ of Silla which ‘opened a new state(개국)’ different from before. Sinju has a meaning that symbolizes the Han River basin itself as a result of the country's founding. And Kim Mu-Ryuk(김무력) was appointed as the governor of Sinju, which is related to the policy of subjugation of people of the region. In 554, Baekje attacked Gwansanseong Fortress of Silla, and Silla was preparing for this in advance by obtaining information that King ‘Seong’ had come directly to the front line. At that time, it is presumed that a certain sympathy was formed between the Gaya forces, which were organized as the military power of Sinju, and the Daegaya forces, who participated in the Battle of Gwansanseong Fortress, and conveyed King Seong's movements.
