The epilogue presents some revealing vignettes of the Kaesŏng Wang in the modern era. Upon Japan’s colonization of Korea and the end of the Chosŏn monarchy, the Wangs were free to celebrate their past without worrying about the official, self-legitimizing rhetoric of Chosŏn. In addition, forces of modernity such as colonialism, nationalism, industrialization, urbanization, and immigration have reshaped the material and human legacies of Koryŏ. Some post-Chosŏn profiles of individual Wangs bring this book’s compelling story of the progeny of fallen royals to conclusion.
