  Gojoseon
According to legend, Gojoseon was founded in 2333 BC by Dangun in the basins of the Liao and Taedong Rivers, ruling over northern Korean peninsula and southern Manchuria, until its fall in 108 BC.
Around 300 BC, Gojoseon lost significant western territory after a war with the Yan state, but this indicates Gojoseon was already a large enough state that could wage war against Yan and survive the loss of 2000 li of territory.
Gojoseon fell after over a year of war, and four Chinese commanderies were set up in southern Manchuria and the northern part of the Korean Peninsula: Lelang or Luolang (樂浪; Korean: Nangnang), Xuantu (玄菟; Hyeondo), Zhenfan (真番; Jinbeon), and Lintun (臨屯; Imdun).

 Gija Joseon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It was traditionally considered a part of the Gojoseon period (2333 BC - 108 BC) of Korean history, but is generally rejected today as a later embellishment.
Records written after the 3rd century BC, when China and Gojoseon were at war, add that Gija led 5,000 to east of present-day Beijing, as written in the Geography of Hanshu from Han Dynasty (though some, especially in China, believe him to have moved to present-day Korea), and became the king of Gija Joseon.
These scholars believe that Gija's influence was limited to western part of Gojoseon, west of Liao River, as attested by Geographical record of Hanshu that recorded that Gija migrated to the west of Liao River.

 Gojoseon Information
As the frontiers and the very nature of the Gojoseon civilization evolved, so did the title and function of the leader, who came to be designated as "king" (王 Wáng), in the tradition of the Zhou Dynasty, around the same time as the Yan (燕) leader[5].
But the ancient kingdom also (and perhaps first and foremost) appears as a prosperous bronze culture civilization, with a complex social structure, including a "class" of horse-riding warriors who certainly contribued to the development of Ancient Joseon and particularly the northern expansion [6], which annexed most of the Liaotung basin.
Gojoseon fell after over a year of war, and four Chinese commanderies were set up in southern Manchuria and the northern part of the Korean Peninsula: Lelang or Luolang (樂浪; Korean: Nangnang), Xuantu (玄菟; Hyeondo), Zhenfan (真番; Jinbeon), and Lintun (臨屯; Imdun).

According to the school of historians who either hold that the migration of Gija is the later fabrication of records, or that Gija replaced Gojoseon established by Dangun, Gojoseon's King Jun appointed one of thee refugees from China, Wiman, a commander of western territories in around 200 BC.
Another school of historians who believe that Gija Joseon coexisted with Gojoseon of Dangun, suggests that Gija Joseon established west of Gojoseon was later overthrown by Wiman, and thus that Wudi's conquest against Wiman Joseon was in western part of Gojoseon formerly ruled by Gija and his descendants.
As for Gojoseon itself, it was disintegrated by 1st Century BC as it gradually lost the control of its former fiefs.

According to the Samguk Sagi, Baekje was founded in 18 BCE by King Onjo, who led a group of people from Goguryeo to the Han River region of Korea, near present-day Seoul.
Baekje claimed to be a successor state to Buyeo, a country that arose in Manchuria after the fall of Gojoseon.
Baekje was established by immigrants from Goguryeo who spoke a Buyeo language, a proposed group linking the languages of Gojoseon, Buyeo, Goguryeo, Baekje, and early Japanese.

Buyeo is believed to have risen from the areas of Gojoseon in the 2nd century BC.
