The Kushnameh, a pre-Islamic Persian epic
Lee Hee-soo, professor of cultural anthropology at Hanyang University, found the royal marriage in the ancient Persian book, which he is researching to show the depth and width of Korea’s international profile in ancient times.
“The Kushnameh, a pre-Islamic Persian epic, gives a surprising amount of remarkable descriptions of the Korean kingdom Silla. Prince Abdin, Persian hero, married a Silla princess named Frarang with the invitation of the king, after a long and difficult adventure through Iran and China,” the professor specialized in Iran said.
