Chapter Summary

Many say that Kanghwa Island is important geopolitically, i.e. the island's geopolitical status is politically delicate so it cannot be considered independently from its political situation. The full geopolitical value of Kanghwa Island emerged at the pan-Eurasian continent level when the Mongols invaded Korea. The tideland in Kanghwa, which is one of the world's five most beautiful places, has existed in Kanghwa from time immemorial. The reed field in the tide-land, which was the living space for the Old Chosun people, is like a dawn breaks over diligent fishermen in Tonggom Island. Therefore, in addition to its ecological significance, Kanghwa's tide-land has shared the island's history of pursuing peace. Dolmens are unique assets that are an integral part of Korea's cultural heritage. Koryo was a maritime state. Mintongsun line in Kanghwa Island is drawn from Wolgot-li Songhae to Inhwa-liYangsa. Tangoonism was presented as a united Korea's ideology.

Keywords: history of pursuing peace; Kanghwa; Korea; Mintongsun line; Tangoonism; tide-land
