Cultural exchange was not one way however. Goryeo had significant cultural influence on the Mongol court of Yuan Dynasty, the most visible of which was adoption of women's hanbok by the aristocrats, queens and concubines of the Mongol court.

It began to be worn since Silla period until Joseon Dynasty. During the Silla period, the official robe system of Tang China was imported and put into practice, while the Goryeo court robes were adopted similarly to those of Mongolian Yuan (Yuan Dynasty). In the Joseon period, Ming China's official robes were adopted. There were several types of ''gwanbok'' which differs in color and design according to the wearer's status, rank, and occasion such as ''jobok'', ''jebok'', ''sangbok'', ''gongbok'', ''yungbok'', and ''gunbok''. As Silla unified the Three Kingdoms of Korea, various foreign cultures and systems were imported from Tang China. In the process, the latest fashion trend of Luoyang, the capital of Tang, were also introduced to Korea. This fashion was similar to the Western empire style (Empire silhouette) but differed from the Korean style in that women wore a skirt over a jacket to make the body slim. After the unification, Korean women started wearing the new style, which was popular not only in China but also in countries influenced by the Silk Road exchange. The style was, however, discontinued during the Goryeo dynasty, the next ruling state of Korea. ''Dallyeong'', a style of clothing from nomadic cultures of Western Asia, was introduced via Tang China and was adopted as the official robe system, Gwanbok, in the 4th century until the 17th century.

Kublai also blockaded all trade to Mongolia from North China, in order to cut the food supply. Ariq Böke finally submitted to Kublai at Xanadu on August 21, 1264. Kublai pardoned him but executed most of his companions. 300px Gyeongbokgung (Image:Korea gyeongbokgung.jpg) Gyeongbokgung, Saturday 4 September, 2004 The Gyeongbokgung is a palace located in Seoul, the capital of South Korea.

Goryeo

'''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.
