As a resident of la County, California, I usually ask my fellow Koreans one query every time we celebration: to which nation did Dokdo belong to?
My buddies and associates realize with out a hint of dissent that Dokdo has belonged to Korea from early instances, and in a feeling, this can be actual. in spite of the fact that, this isn't the reply i've got come to expect.
Dokdo used to be an island that had belonged to a 3rd kingdom, Usan state. Usan country at the boundless east sea was once an island created by means of volcanic job. The residing customs and languages of the population have been comparable with these of the Shilla those who lived at the nearest mainland.
The complete of Usan Kingdom's territory and population used to be basically such as the dimensions of a big Shilla village, however it used to be nonetheless an self sustaining state with a king and dependable matters.

These have been days earlier than Buddhism was once brought to Shilla. Royal households nonetheless buried the dwelling one of the lifeless. they didn't understand how to take advantage of cows or horses for agriculture.
I have written this novel in line with Korean historic facts.
I introduce Kim Isabu, a guy who grew as much as develop into a Shilla normal whereas dealing with remarkable issues all through his existence. He was once exclusive in different army campaigns. Usan nation used to be a rustic composed of approximately 40 uninhabited islands, together with huge major islands—the moment biggest being Dokdo.
According to Samguk Sagi (The Chronicles of the 3 States), Kim Isabu conquered Usan state below royal command in June 512 advert. on account that then, Ulleungdo and Dokdo have legally remained islands of Korea. Who, or which state, can impudently insist that Dokdo is its own?
If a chance arises, i'm going to translate my publication into eastern and proportion my examine and storytelling for these readers in Japan.
