I hate to be the one to point this out, but Hong's book on Japanese-Paekche 
relations is completely unreliable. Hong bases his argument on a rather 
naive reading of Japanese and Korean materials. He doesn't take into 
account archaeological evidence.  Nor does he take into account the 
possibility that books written hundreds of years after the events they 
purport to describe might not be accurate. I have asked students to read 
that book only when I wanted them to see how history should not be done.
