Korea

The Koryo Dynasty

The Koryo Dynasty lasted from 935 to 1392. During the Koryo, there were many rulers but the main one was Wang Kon. He was a powerful general that took over as general of the Koryo. Also during the Koryo, the people adapted many aspects of the Chinese culture. For example, they adopted the civil service examination system. Even though they adopted a lot from China, they also invented many things. One of these being a blue-green glaze called celadon. This made the pottery of the Koryo some of the most valuable in the world. The Koryo sounded great, but of course had to come to an end. The dynasty officially ended when a Korean general founded a new dynasty that would continue until 1910.
