Revised high school texts fuel controversy

Critics accuse gov’t of reacting to Chinese historical claims

Revised high-school history textbooks will describe the Bronze Age as having started in 2000 B.C. on the Korean Peninsula, up to one millennium earlier than what was claimed by previous textbooks. The textbooks will also state that the Gojoseon Kingdom, believed to be the first in Korea’s history, was firmly established by Dangun in 2333 B.C.

Dangun’s identity has been integrated into Korean foundation myths; however, scholars still debate whether he was an actual tribal chieftan or a symbolic figure.
