IN KOREA, IT EVOLVED INTO A UNIQUE ART FORM CALLED NAJEON CHILGI AROUND THE ARRIVAL OF THE GORYEO DYNASTY (918-1392). BECAUSE THE GORYEO ARTISANS PRODUCED SUCH SPLENDID WORKS OF ART, NAJEON CHILGI SOON BECAME ONE OF THE DYANSTY'S MAJOR ARTISTIC CONTRIBUTIONS ALONG WITH CELADON CERAMIC WARE AND METAL WORKS.
