- Regarding as two important beliefs of nation founding for the Koreans, although there are key differences between the content of Dangun Myth and the history of Gija Joseon, both ideas were long standing and well established, and to a certain extent showed the cultural consciousness of ancient Korea and the chronic cultural interaction between China and Korea.
However, in view of different objects of worship in the texts of Dangun Myth and Gija Joseon, two ideas were apparently incompatible. They accordingly showed their importance or became belief of some Korean intellectuals in different periods of Korean history respectively. In an academic perspective, it is more worthy to pay attention to the historical, cultural consciousness and historical application of the two ideas.
