Shouldn't this be merged into Provinces of Korea? DJ Clayworth 15:57, 26 Sep 2003 (UTC)

5 months later, still a valid question...I started making Provinces of Korea into one big megapage last autumn, but never completed the task. This article is nicely compact and self-sustaining (although still somewhat unwieldy)...I don't know if I should weigh down P of K with any more details than it already has. --Sewing 01:53, 3 Mar 2004 (UTC)
I reckon this page is OK on its own. Kokiri 16:41, 5 Mar 2004 (UTC)

The longer this page sticks around, the more valid I think it is to treat the traditional Eight Provinces in their own article like this. Despite all the changes of the last century, these traditional divisions still form a major part of Korea's cultural geography, and provide a tangible link with the distant past. -Sewing - talk 01:27, 21 Sep 2004 (UTC)

After a long hiatus (to which I fully intend to return), I have expanded this article—especially the History section—and added some external links. I have also gone through the individual articles on each of the eight provinces and expanded or updated them where necessary. -Sewing - talk 22:12, 26 Mar 2005 (UTC)


P'alto versus P'aldo[edit]

When I originally wrote this article, I mistakenly wrote "P'aldo" as the McCune-Reischauer romanized spelling of 팔도. The McC.-R. system itself, however, and its adaptations—the official South Korean system from 1984 to 2000 and the ALA-LC Romanization guidelines for North American libraries—is intended to reflect the pronunciation of Korean over and above its spelling. The word is in fact pronounced in Korean as 팔또, and should be romanized as P'alto (according to the conventions used in those systems). -Sewing - talk 02:05, 4 Jun 2005 (UTC)


It has been suggested that this page be merged with Provinces of Korea, but apart from the "merge" boilerplate, the person who added it has not offered any rationalization for why it should be done. This issue has been discussed before (see comments up above), but given that this article covers a lot of historical and cultural details that are tangential to a more general historical survey of Korea's administrative divisions, I feel it is better to keep this as a separate article. -Sewing 17:50, 26 September 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Also, equivalents of this page exist as distinct articles in the French, Korean, Japanese, Russian, and Chinese-langauge Wikipedias. -Sewing 17:53, 26 September 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Provincial Map[edit]

Why is the map in Chinese/Hanja? without Korean Hanguel? Please upload better map than currently posted. --Korsentry 03:16, 11 March 2009 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by KoreanSentry (talkcontribs)

This article needs a good map[edit]

Why is thee only one map in this article, and even that without province names?--Adûnâi (talk) 17:16, 17 February 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
