History[edit]

Early medieval history[edit]

From 698 to 936, the kingdom of Balhae occupied northern Korea and parts of Manchuria and Primorsky Krai, consisting of the Nanai, the Udege, and descendants of the Tungus-speaking people and the people of the recently fallen Goguryeo kingdom of Korea. The vicinity of Tongjiang was settled at this moment by Funie Mohe tribes (Hanja/Hanzi: 拂涅靺鞨; pinyin: Fúniè Mòhé; Korean불열말갈). These tribes were submitted to Balhae Kingdom under King Mun's reign (737-793).

Later, King Seon (r.818-830), administrated their territories by creating a prefecture in the neighbourhood : The Dongpyong Prefecture (Korean동평부; Hanja東平府) with Yiju (Korean: 이주; Hanja: 伊州), present-day Dangbi (Chinese: 当壁; pinyin: Dāngbì) as its administrative centre.
