Must Koreans keep ranting "Dokdo is our territory" so crazily wherever they go? Must their coming generations continue the same thing till the end of its history? When will they admit they are lying? What South Korean needs most is a courageous child in Andersen's "The Emperor's New Clothes," who can cry out "But he isn't wearing anything at all!." Only the truth can make them free.
What is "Usanguk?" What is "Usando?"
Some Koreans seem to be confused with two terms "Usanguk" and "Usando," so I must explain about them here. Please not that Usanguk and Usando are two different things.
A. Usanguk 于山国 (Country of Usan)
"Usanguk" (Country of Usan) is the name of the country which existed on the Ulleungdo Islands and was annexed by Silla in 512.Korean oldest historical record, Samguk Sagi described this incident and said as follows.
"Usanguk is another name of Ulleungdo."
In Samguk Sagi, no other islands are mentioned. So we must conclude here that "Usanguk" was "Ulleungdo."
B. Usando 于山島 (Island of Usan)
In later Korean historical records and maps, two islands came to appear, namely Ulleungdo and Usando (Island of Usan.) Most old Korean maps depicted these two islands, though the place of Usando was always random.
Especially, we can read the following famous description in Sejong Silok. (I was amazed to find that some Koreans didn't know these Korean historical records were written in Chinese language, not Korean. When I quoted these original text, some Koreans said that it is Chinese translation. )
"于山、武陵二島在縣正東海中。【二島相去不遠, 風日淸明, 則可望見。 新羅時, 稱于山國, 一云鬱陵島。 地方百里,"
"Two islands, Usan and Mulleung exist due east in the East Sea. Two islands are not so far from each other and can be seen on sunny days. During Silla period, both islands were called "Usanguk" or "Ulleungdo" and its square measure was 100 ri."
(By the way, koreans are interpreting this description in Sejong Sillok as depicting Ulleungdo and Dokdo, only because Dokdo is visible on sunny days from Ullungdo. This interpretation is totally wrong as I will show you in another video of ours.
Reason1. This description says two islands are not far from each other. Dokdo lies 93 km east-southeast of Ulleungdo. You can not call this distance "not far."
Reason2. This description says square measure of Usanguk was 100 ri. If you include Ullengdo and Dokdo in "Usanguk," the square measure will be much larger.
Reason3. This description says two islands lie due east of the Uljin Province. Ulleungdo and Dokdo don't lie in the same direction from Uljin
Reason4. When you interpret some text, you must read it in the context, The description appears in the context which is describing Uljin province. So we must interpret it like "two islands Usan and Mulleung can be seen from Uljin on sunny days.")
According to these descriptions, we can simply says as follows.
1. In Silla period, a general term "Usanguk" (Country of Usan) was applied to the Ulleungdo Island. (maybe small islets around it such as Jukdo included)
2. In later period, two Islands in the Sea of Japan came to have distinct names, Ulleungdo and Usando (Island of Usan).
The problem here is which island "Usando" was referring to. As I showed in this video, "Usando" is identical to the present Jukdo which lies 2km east of Ulleungdo, not Dokdo.
