Freedom 1908

Dangun, believed to be the founder of the first kingdom of Korea in 2333 BCE, is also said to be the grandson of the god of heaven, the son of a woman who had transformed herself from a bear with the aid of garlic and mugwort, and a half-deity himself. His godheadedness came late in life, as he did not shuffle off this mortal coil to ascend to the pantheon of spirits until the tender age of 1908. Chamsongdan Altar sits atop Manisan, where Dangun built it to both oversee the Gojoseon kingdom and pay homage to the spirits who infuse all realms.
