Abstract

This chapter discusses the legacies of Sadae in the contemporary era from 1910 (when Korea was annexed by Japan) to the present day. The logic underpinning ‘anti-Sadae’ and Yongdae is examined, followed by an analysis of how these legacies of Sadae continued to influence the two Korean states’ contemporary foreign relations with the great powers from the onset of the Cold War to the post-Cold War years.
