  Gwanggaeto the Great of Goguryeo - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Goguryeo's King Sosurim, who succeeded Gogukwon upon the latter's death in 371, kept his foreign policy as isolationist as possible so as to rebuild a state gravely weakened by the Baekje invasion of 371.
Thus Goguryeo, surrounded by a powerful Baekje's forces to its south and west, was inclined to avoid conflict with its peninsular neighbor while cultivating constructive relations with the Xienpei and Yuyeon, in order to defend itself from future invasions, and even the possible destruction of its state.
Goguryeo control over the Liaoning region remained strong until the Sui Dynasty seized the area as a part of its war against Goguryeo in the late 6th century.

Goguryeo tomb murals are the oldest paintings still in existence on the Korean Peninsula and paragons of the Oriental paintings of the early Middle Ages in general.
The Goguryeo borders in later periods of its history were roughly similar to the present-day borders of the DPRK.
The recent conflict around Goguryeo mural tombs clearly showed that, despite all the efforts undertaken by North Korean historians to study and glorify the national past, the real ability of DPRK historical scholarship to defend its positions is extremely limited.

 Goguryeo Undeniably Part Of Korean History - Asia Finest Discussion Forum
All Goguryeo researchers agree that it was one of the earliest Korean states; its founding and existence as well as its relations with the other inhabitants of the Korean Peninsula reflected the objective process of the formation and development of Korean nation.
When Goguryeo flourished, especially during the reign of king Gwanggaeto (fifth century A.D.) many lands of the present-day northeastern China were a part of the Goguryeo state, hence the monuments of the Goguryeo culture survived there up to now.
Centuries-long resistance to Chinese invaders and internal contradictions ultimately weakened the Goguryeo state; hence in the second half of the seventh century it was conquered by the Tang Dynasty and a part of its territory was ceded to it.

Therefore, the Goguryeo tomb-mural controversy may provide a rare case in which China finally does something wrong in Korean eyes, with all its geopolitical consequences, of which territorial disputes may turn out only minor ones in comparison.
The historical fact is that Goguryeo and many of its individuals actively participated in the political, cultural and religious life of contemporary northern China.
One should be even less concerned about the prospect that China's claim regarding the kingdom of Goguryeo may further extend to Korea's southwestern kingdom of Paekche, which according to early legends was founded by someone related to the family that had earlier founded Goguryeo.

 History Of The Balhae (Korea/China)
With regard to the population composition, Korea maintains that it was a kingdom of the displaced Goguryeo people, while some Korean and Japanese scholars argue that the ruling class consisted of Goguryeo people, and the ruled were the Malgal (Mo-ho) tribes.
It should be acknowledged that Balhae succeeded Goguryeo, because the state of Balhae was founded in the former territory of Goguryeo and its population mostly consisted of Goguryeo people, even though a number of Goguryeo people had been forcibly relocated to other areas following the downfall of Goguryeo in 668.
It is utterly unreasonable to argue that the Malgals suddenly replaced all Goguryeo people in the old Goguryeo territory or their population suddenly increased to outnumber the indigenous Goguryeo people.
