Korean medicine Started 5,000 years ago
Traditional Korean Medicine can trace its roots back to the Gojoseon Kingdom.
- It began as a form of folk medicine native to the Korean Peninsula and today’s Liadong Peninsula area
Relationship with Traditional Chinese Medicine
Advancements in printing technology across East Asia in the 12th century helped publish medical texts and stimulated the exchange of information with neighboring countries such as China, which pushed traditional Korean medicine to new heights. (Publication of Hyang Yak Gu Geup Bang, Publication of Hyang Yak Jip Seong Bang)
Donguibogam was listed on UNESCO World Heritage
The Joseon Dynasty strategically invested in traditional Korean medicine, thereby publishing a number of books on medicine, including the Euibangyoochi(1447), Donguibogam(1613), Donguisusebowon(1894),
and contributing to the growth of medicine in nearby countries.
In particular, Donguibogam was listed on UNESCO World Heritage in 2009.
