Between that time and the paintings and frescoes that appear on the Goryeo dynasty tombs, there has been little research. Suffice to say that until the Joseon (Joseon Dynasty) dynasty the primary influence was Chinese (China) painting though done with Korean landscapes, facial features, Buddhist topics, and an emphasis on celestial observation in keeping with the rapid development of Korean astronomy. History In 826, the "Nine Mountains of Seon" adopted the name ''Jogye'', which is the Cantonese village where Patriarch Huineng's home temple (Nanhua Temple) is located. They all were instrumental in the development of the nation during Unified Silla and thereafter. During Goryeo, National Masters Bojo Jinul and Taego Bou led major Seon movements. The Jogye Order was thus established as the representative Seon order until the persecution of the Joseon Dynasty. thumb left “Dancing together holding with two swords” from Hyewon pungsokdo (Image:Hyewon-Ssanggeum.daemu.jpg) depicting '' geommu'' (sword dance) performing during Joseon dynasty Korean traditional dance originated in ancient shamanistic rituals (Korean shamanism) thousands of years ago.

In addition, the royal court, mindful that the Joseon dynasty founder, Yi Seonggye (Taejo of Joseon), was a general who overthrew the last Goryeo king, looked warily at its successful and popular military leaders and were reluctant to support a large military. Influenced by Confucian thought, the royal court generally deferred to imperial China out of respect in regards to their foreign, cultural, and defense policies, relying on the Ming (Ming Dynasty) and Qing (Qing Dynasty) dynasties for military aid and necessary foreign intervention '''Wonjong of Goryeo''' (1219–1274, r. 1260–1274) was the 24th ruler of the Goryeo dynasty of Korea.

'''Goryeo''', also known as '''Koryŏ''' ( It united the Later Three Kingdoms in 936 and ruled most of the Korean peninsula until it was removed by the leader of the Joseon dynasty in 1392. The Goryeo dynasty expanded its borders to present-day Wonsan in the north-east (936–943) and the Amnok River (Yalu River) (993) and finally almost the whole of the Korean peninsula (1374).
Two of this period's most notable products are Goryeo celadon pottery (korean pottery and porcelain) and the ''Tripitaka Koreana'' — the Buddhist scriptures (''Tripitaka'') carved onto roughly 80,000 woodblocks and stored, and still in, Haeinsa. Subjects and officials of the Goryeo dynasty also created the world's first metal-based movable type in 1234; the oldest surviving movable metal type book, the Jikji, was made in 1377.
In 668, Silla conquered Baekje and Goguryeo with alliance of Tang Dynasty, but by the late 9th century it was tottering, its monarchs being unimaginative and pressed by the power of powerful statesmen. Many robbers and outlaws agitated and in 900 Gyeon Hwon revolted from Silla control in the Jeolla region as Hubaekje and next year Gung Ye revolted from the northern regions as Hugoguryeo (Taebong). A son of a regional lord, Wang Geon went into Hugoguryeo as a general.
Hugoguryeo fell when Wang Geon revolted and killed Gung Ye in 918; Silla was overpowered by Goryeo and Hubaekje and surrendered to Goryeo in 935. In 936 Hubaekje surrendered and Goryeo started an unbroken dynasty that ruled Korea for 474 years.
By the 14th century Goryeo had lost much of its power under Yuan Dynasty influences. Although King (Rulers of Korea#Goryeo) Gongmin (Gongmin of Goryeo) managed to free his kingdom from the Mongol influence, the Goryeo general Yi Seonggye (Taejo of Joseon) revolted and overthrew the last king of Goryeo, King Gongyang (Gongyang of Goryeo) in 1392. Gongyang was killed in 1394.
