Korean Bias[edit]

The claim that Old Chosun was founded in 2300 BCE needs to be supported. It has no archeological evidence and little textual evidence to back up that claim. So far, Old Chosun is only a legend and nothing more.

Shouldn't this article get a disambiguation tag? [[User:GK|gK ¿?]] 13:33, 17 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Or be expanded into an article? Also, shouldn't the Chinese and Japanese names be moved from the text to the name table? — I thought that was the whole point of name tables. Kokiri 09:34, 11 July 2005 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The case of the vanishing content[edit]

This article has lost an impressive amount of content over the past few months -- all of the discussion of the meaning of the name, also the name table. I could dig it all back out of the history, but perhaps there is a reason that it was removed? -- Visviva 12:52, 6 January 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

i think this page essentially works as a disambiguation page, with etymological discussion belonging in Names of Korea. if i deleted something useful, it was probably unintentionally lost in the transition to Names of Korea, so feel free to add there.

Inclusion of North Korea on disambiguation[edit]

I included North Korea in the list - separate from Korea as a whole - because the DPRK still refers to itself AS Joseon, not just "Korea". The name - 조선민주주의인민공화국 - is made of four Korean words - 조선 (Joseon) 민주주의 (Democracy) 인민 (People) 공화국 (Republic). South Korea prefers to refer to Korea as 한국 ("Hangook", literally translates as "one nation"), so it's important to note the difference between the two. (talk) 20:45, 29 March 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
