Goryeo Palace Site in Ganghwa Island[1]

The Lives of Goryeo People during the Military Regime

Choe U (崔瑀; 1166 - 1249) was the second Choe dictator of the Ubong Choe military regime. He himself went out on the battlefield to lead in fighting off the Mongolian invasions. Then he realized that the government was no longer safe at the capital city of Kaesong, and so he forced the king Gojong (r. 1213-1259) and his officials to flee to Ganghwa island. He took some of his armies and went to Ganghwa island with them. He did this because he knew that the Mongols would not attempt a naval assault against Ganghwa. Therefore, the Goryeo government was kept safe for several decades even after the Choe regime.[2]

Since the transfer of power, the Choe administration has relied on the geographical advantages of Ganghwa Island rather than providing active resistance to the war. So they enjoyed the same luxury and stayed in office. This is why it is assessed that the transfer of the capital was only aimed at defending the military regime and guaranteeing the safety of some ruling groups, rather than focusing on tactical values or diplomatic strategy.[4]

The Choe administration had never fought against the Mongols in a grand dream struggle, and has only postponed its surrender on Ganghwa Island indefinitely. Rather, they brought various trees to Ganghwa Island, where they formed a wide circle of trees, built large houses, and enjoyed the scenery. Choe and the military rule did not care whether the people were captured and killed or stolen by the Mongol army.[6]

The tyranny of the military rule to take power made the country's politics difficult.The military rule illegally robbed the people's land and collected more taxes than they had set. Local governments raised taxes on the land to satisfy their greed, making life more difficult for the people.[7] The military needed more land and more grain to stay in power. People had to suffer and live a tough life. Uprisings took place frequently under the military regime.[8]

Goryeo was invaded seven times over 30 years by Mongols. The Choe administration continued to live a luxurious life in Ganghwa. On the other hand, people who were abandoned on land suffered all kinds of hardships and the land was devastated. According to Goryeosa Jeolyo, about 206,800 people were taken to Mongolia as prisoners during the fifth invasion and many lives were killed. Then the tax burden began. However, Goryeosa Jeolyo says the people waited for the Mongol army to come, as too much tax was collected.[9]

Have you ever heard of Lee Eui-bang, Jung Joong-bu and Lee Eui-min?
I'm going to present these people's psychology.
Their psychological transformation comes in the military rule and the inferiority complex they had before the military revolution turned them into superiority.
As their sense of superiority continues, they have an superiority complex.
A superiority complex is a state of acting like the best.
People in this state have the personality to ignore others and show off themselves.
As such, they take power based on the belief that they are superior, and they are forced and exploited.
