Abstract

Even if Koreans believe their people is a "pure" one, there were in the past many cases of ethnic and cultural "contamination". This paper deals with Sol Son, a Chinese officer of Uighur origin, who took refuge in Korea after the turmoil provoked by the so-called "Red Turbans" (1359-1360). In Korea he was warmly welcomed by King Kongmin, who has been his friend since long time, and eventually he and his family were granted Korean citizenship and full civil rights. After that, some of Sol's descendants (such as Sol Changsu)became illustrious officers and literati in Korea.
