Introduction of Nonsan City


 History of Nonsan City

Nonsan is located in the lower part of Korea, which takes the shape of a roaring tiger. As such, it has long been a core source of power, and the area has been settled by our ancestors since the prehistoric times. During the Samhan period, the city was part of Mahan, and in the period of the Three States, it was a part of Baekjae. In fact, the city was once the site of Baekjae's final battle between Baekjae's 5,000 soldiers led by General Gyebaek and the 50,000 army led by Shilla's General Kim Yushin
