Abstract:To date, most scholarly studies of Sino-Korean relations during the Ming have focused on the turbulent events of the late fourteenth century and the periods of crises during the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries. Less attention has been devoted to the maintenance of Ming-Chos?n relations and the resolution of relatively minor incidents during the intervening two centuries. More attention to the ongoing management of Sino-Korean relations during this period of peace and general amity is necessary. Not only was the period of the fifteenth and the majority of the sixteenth centuries more typical of Ming-Chos?n relations than the heightened tension and suspicion that marked the early fourteenth and late sixteenth centuries. Further, close study of these ongoing relations reveal much about how East Asian diplomacy was actually conducted.
