Relationships between Korea and China remained relatively peaceful during this time.

Later Silla carried on the maritime prowess of Baekje, which acted like the Phoenicia of medieval East Asia, and during the 8th and 9th centuries dominated the seas of East Asia and the trade between China, Korea and Japan, most notably during the time of Jang Bogo; in addition, Silla people made overseas communities in China on the Shandong Peninsula and the mouth of the Yangtze River.

The new official name has its origin in the ancient country of Gojoseon (Old Joseon).

In 1897, the Joseon dynasty changed the official name of the country from Joseon to Daehan Jeguk (Korean Empire).

The history of Korea begins with the founding of Joseon (also known as "Gojoseon", or Old Joseon, to differentiate it with the 14th century dynasty) in 2333 BC by Dangun, according to Korea's foundation mythology.

Gojoseon expanded until it controlled the northern Korean Peninsula and parts of Manchuria.

Goryeo was never conquered by the Mongols, but exhausted after three decades of fighting, the Korean court sent its crown prince to the Yuan capital to swear allegiance to Kublai Khan, who accepted, and married one of his daughters to the Korean crown prince.

as evidenced by the Hwangnyongsa, Seokguram, and Emille Bell.

From them, Goguryeo, Baekje, and Silla emerged to control the peninsula as the Three Kingdoms of Korea.

Goguryeo, the largest and most powerful among them, was a highly militaristic state, Silla was the smallest and weakest of the three, but it used cunning diplomatic means to make opportunistic pacts and alliances with the more powerful Korean kingdoms, and eventually Tang China, to its great advantage.

in the Goryeo–Khitan War, Goryeo experienced a golden age that lasted a century, during which the Tripitaka Koreana was completed and there were great developments in printing and publishing, promoting learning and dispersing knowledge on philosophy, literature, religion, and science; by 1100, there were 12 universities that produced famous scholars and scientists.

However, the Mongol invasions in the 13th century greatly weakened the kingdom.
