In 1314 King Chungseon passed the throne to his son Chungsuk. In 1321 Chungsuk fathered his son Chunghye. This prompted the previous crown prince of Goryeo, Öljeitü, to establish an alliance with Emperor Sidibala, and King Chungsuk was thus interned in 1321. However, Sidibala was assassinated in 1323 and Öljeitü's plan was aborted.

King Chungsuk, who was allowed to return to Goryeo in 1325, passed the throne to King Chunghye in 1330 but was reinstated after two years because King Chunghye was deposed by Yuan.

King Chungsuk died in 1339.
