Koryo Dynasty

(935 - 1392)

In 935 a group of rebels broke away from China forming the Koryo dynasty. The rulers during the Koryo dynasty adopted many Chinese ideas. The dynasty had two groups of people, the nobles and the rest of the people. Also there was a lot of pottery that was almost like Chinese porcelain. They innovated the Chinese removable wooden printing blocks with metal printing blocks. The end of the dynasty happened in 1392 when the Mongols from Yuan China attacked and took over.
