The Korea Post news:

After persecutions during Joseon Dynasty, Japanese colonial rule

Traditional Korean Mugyo (shamanism), dates back to 4,348 years, now has heyday

When one is asked what the traditional Korean religions are in Korea, one will answer, “Yu-Bul-Do,” meaning “Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism.” Some will even say “Yu-Bul-Seon” but here “Seon” is more or less similar to “Do” (Taoism).

The answers are all wrong.

The traditional Korean religion is Mugyo (巫敎) which some translate as “Shamanism,” but which properly means SaengSaeng (生生) implying “Benevolence for All” vis-a-vis Sang Saeng (相生) or “Mutual Benefit.”

Confucianism and Taoism came from China and so did Buddhism which originated in Pakistan (Nepal or India as some claim). Christian religion came later. Mugyo was developed in ancient Korea which then included a part of Siberia as well as the Manchurian region of China (/news/view.html?smode=&skey=Mugyo&x=12&y=13&section=162&category=182&no=1079)

Mugyo in Korea, according to JisikBaekgwa (Encyclopedia of Knowledge), shares its roots with the shaman religion of the Ural Altai nations of Mongolia, Manchuria and Japan.
The Korean Mugyo dates back to the Era of Dangun (the legendary progenitor of the Korean nation) 4,348 years ago, and has mixed with Buddhism and Taoism, and has been living with the Korean people for over four millennia of years. The Korean Mugyo flourished until the beginning of the Joseon Dynasty 1392 when the kings started persecuting Mudang (shamans). The persecution continued also during the colonial rule of Korea by the Japanese Empire from 1910 to 1945 as part of its plan to root out any trace of national identity of the Korean people.

Korea’s liberation from Japan in 1945 did not bring any good news to the Korean Mugyo because in the midst of influx of Western ideas, science and knowledge, the Korean Mugyo was looked down upon and labeled as a superstitious belief.

However, beginning with the rapid economic development and growth beginning in the 1970s under the late President Park Chung-hee, a sense of self-respect and national identity started growing and an endeavor started to recover the lost identity and traditional culture of Korea.

In this process, the Korean Mugyo was given a re-evaluation with the result that the government designated some of the Mugyopractioners (shamans) as Human Cultural Assets.

Against this backdrop, the number of Mugyo practioners have grown by leaps and bounds.

Records indicate that the number of Korean Mugyo practioners were only 2,600 during the Period of King Sunjong (1907-1910) of the Joseon Dynasty, but continued to grow and totaled 12,380 in 1937 in spite of the severe Japanese suppressions. In 1960, fifteen years after Korea’s Liberation from Japan, the number jumped to 21,930 and then to 40,000 in 1965.

Now the number of Korean shaman practioners total over 300,000 according to a recent official announcement of the government-approved GyeongsinYeonhap-hoe (Federation of Korean Folk Religious Organizations).

History textbooks: a ruling party gamble that could backfire

Experts suggest textbook decision more about Pres. Park‘s convictions than a strategy for 2016 parliamentary elections

The issue of a single Korean history textbook designation is escalating from demonstrations into a fierce national debate.President Park Geun-hye claimed the decision to designate textbooks was made because “history education and political debates should not be allowed to create ideological conflict and divide the South Korean people.” But the rifts and conflict are, if anything, only deepening.

In Washington, Pres. Park working to reaffirm US alliance

President Park Geun-hye arrived in Washington, DC, on the afternoon of Oct. 13 for a four-day diplomatic visit.Key themes for Park’s visit will include the South Korea-US alliance, coordination on North Korea, and expanding cooperation on “new frontiers,” the Blue House said. Sources said a particular focus would be on allaying concerns that Seoul has become too close to Beijing, with plans to show the alliance’s strength through a full schedule of diplomatic events besides Park’s summit with US President Barack Obama on Oct. 16. .

Seoul hoping Washington will change tack on jet fighter tech transfer

Defense Minister Han Min-koo, who is accompanying President Park Geun-hye on her visit to the US, is planning to ask the US once again to transfer key technology for the Korean fighter project (called the KF-X or Boramae).When Park visits the Pentagon in Washington on Oct. 15, Han reportedly will meet with US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter to request that the US government reconsider its refusal to grant the transfer of four kinds of key technologies for the Korean fighter project. .

In S. Korea, historical distortions that Abe could only dream of

Toshio Suzuki sighed deeply when asked for his thoughts on the South Korean government’s recent decision to designate official Korean history textbooks. The 66-year-old retired high school teacher has long been part of the campaign in Japan to oppose government involvement in textbooks. He then said, “Why wouldn’t more and more people in Japan start thinking, ‘So South Korea is one of those countries that teaches students history however it sees fit’?” .

[Analysis] Inter-Korean relations hinge on Pres. Park’s visit to the US

On the afternoon of Oct. 13, President Park Geun-hye departed South Korea for a summit with US President Barack Obama. The summit will take place in Washington, D.C. on Oct. 16.At the meeting, the two leaders are expected to adopt a joint fact sheet on the current status of bilateral relations, which contains a number of measures for cooperation. Reportedly, they are also very likely to issue a separate joint statement regarding the issues of North Korea and its nuclear program.
