On 16th, LA. Dr Hong Beom Rhee the author of “Asian Millenarianism” gave a speech.
According to the article,
한국인은 미개해서 고대에는 중국의 속국으로 근대에는 일본의 식민지가 됐다\”는 일반적인 역사인식을 깨트리며 \”일본과 중국을 만든 민족은 바로 한국인이며, 고대 한국 문명이 아시아 문명의 모체가 됐다\
Contrasted with the common historical knowledge, which “Koreans were uncivilized and Korea used to be a vassal state of China and a colony of Japan”, “it was Koreans created Japan and China, and ancient Korean civilization was the origin of Asian civilizations”.
“韓国人は未開で古代には中国の属国で近代には日本の植民地になった”という一般的な歴史認識を破って “日本と中国を作った民族はまさに韓国人であり, 古代韓国文明がアジア文明の母体となった”
I’d really like to see the logic and proof to back up his theory.
From what I know, people living in the Korean peninsula spoke different languages and had different customs around 6th century. I wonder which people he’s talking about.
And he forgets about Mongols. Korea used to be under severe control from Mongols; worse than a vassal state. And his claim is based on “Korean Pure Blood” myth (and of course the “Dangun” myth). But, the fact is, Koreans today are pretty mongolianized…
Well, pretty soon, he’s gonna start saying Korean have 10000 years of history or whatever.
