Great Men of the Past

Sir Seo Hee
He was a diplomat and the civil minister of Goryeo. When Kitan (a Chinese nation state) invaded Goryeo, he strongly disagreed with the idea of giving Seogyeong (a part of current North Korea) as reinforcement. But he took the sovereign´s message directly to the enemy´s general, So Son Nyeong, thus resolved the problem by leading to the retreat of Kitan. Later, he expelled Yeojin (a Chinese nation) and kept the areas of Pyeongbuk (current area’s name).
