General Yi [Taejo of Joseon] established close relationships with the neighbouring Ming dynasty (1368–1644) of China, which considered Korea a client state, and Chinese cultural influences were very strong during this period. Chosŏn’s administration was modeled after the Chinese bureaucracy, and Neo-Confucianism was adopted as the ideology of the state and society.
