The Korean Peninsula has been around since prehistoric times and Gojoseon (Joseon). It was the first-ever kingdom that was established in its history. According to loose historical accounts, it was located in northern Korean and southern Manchuria. It was established in 2333 BCE by Danhun Wanggeom, who was believed to have been descended from the heavens. Most people would probably be more familiar with the history of The Three Kingdoms, which came after the fall of the Gojoseon Kingdom. The term refers to the kingdoms of Baekje, Silla, and Goguryeo. The kingdoms of Baekje and Silla occupied the southern half of the Korean Peninsula while Goguryeo controlled the north. Each kingdom vied for supremacy and the complete rule of the Korean Peninsula. The alliance between the Silla kingdom and the Chinese resulted in the eventual defeat of the Goguryeo and Baekje. For the first time in history, the entire Korean Peninsula was unified under the Silla.

It has been used in literature, poetry, and even in some fictional works. Modern Korean society, specifically South Korea, is known to produce some great dramas in entertainment.
