Maecheon-Yarok (Lunar-calendar April section, 1906)


About 100li (39km) east of Ulleungdo lies an island called Dokdo. It used to belong to Ulleungdo. The Japanese made an absurd claim that it was their territory and surveyed the island in detail.
* Maecheon-Yarok is an unofficial history recorded by Hwang Hyeon from 1864 to 1910.
