One important historical aspect that should be considered when we talk about Korean history is the history of Buddhism. Buddhism was first introduced to Korea during the Goguryeo dynasty and then to Backje, Shilla, and Gaya. Continuing on  down through the Goryeo dynasty and the Joseon dynasty, it is still writing a page in contemporary Korean history. Up until now, in most cases, histories of Korean Buddhism have  focused on ideas or people and  been dealt with from scholarly perspectives, which made them inaccessible for the general public. History of Buddhism in Korea As a Story was written by the Independent scholar Lee Yihwa, who is renowned for telling Korean history in the easiest way for all to understand. Lee relates the history of Korean Buddhism in his unique storytelling style, contextualizing it within the larger history of Korea.  This book will make the reader feel close to and help them to easily understand the history of Buddhism in Korea;  the goal and distinct characteristics of this book.
