Beijing's attempt to usurp a key component of Korea's history and claim that Koguryo was a "subordinate state that fell under the jurisdiction of the Chinese dynasties" inflamed both Koreas... - Klingner, 2004
  9. 9. "MBC recently started up “Jumong,” a 60-part drama on the founder of the Goguryeo kingdom, while SBS will start a 100-part drama on Goguryeo from July. KBS will begin airing a 100-part drama on the history of the Balhae kingdom from September. The Chinese reportedly suspect this to be a government-backed response to Beijing’s “Northeast Project,” which Koreans accuse of being a Chinese attempt to appropriate Goguryeo history." - Koehler, 2006
