ABSTRACT

The Kyŏngsin hwanguk (, Reversal of the Political Situation in the Year of Kyŏngsin) was an incident which served as the impetus for the collapse of the long-existing structure of factional politics that had functioned based on a system of checks and balances between the various factions.1 More to the point, this incident paved the way for the move away from factional politics and towards a series of political reversals (hwanguk chŏngchi). This period has been regarded as an important one when it comes to understanding the political history of late Chosŏn.
