(2) Discuss the East Asian way of migration of ruling houses, referring to the founders ofOld Choson, Wiman Choson, Koguryo, Paekche, and Yamato. [Tips]: It will be a goodidea to briefly explain the characteristics of each case first, and then put all the cases together, try to find out their similarities, and interpret them. Referring to a couple of related articles covered in your discussion section will help you provide a better essay. (3) Discuss political participation in traditional Korean society focusing on Silla, Koryo,and Choson societies in connection with the social status system. [Tips]: You had better consider whether political opportunities were given to more people at the time of each dynastic change or not, and if yes, to what extent. You will also need to clarify whether the civil service examination system of Choson actually gave more people more opportunities or not and conceptualize the nature of Koryo and Choson politics as aristocracy, bureaucracy, or anything else.(4) Discuss the economic bases of Korean aristocracy in the Silla, Koryo, and earlyChoson periods with emphasis on the land system. [Tips]: You need to think about detailed sub-topics such as the interpretation of the abolition and revival of the stipend village system in Silla, types of land ? Koryo aristocrats and Choson yangban possessed? It would be much better if you could provide whether the chronic problem of land distribution was eventually solved in the Choson dynasty and if yes, to why, how, and to what extent, or if not, why not.(5) Discuss the trend of Korean Buddhism in connection with the political situations fromthe three-kingdom period to the Koryo period.
