mongol name[edit]

why not add his mongol birthname as well? it was Bayàn Temür 139.80.123.40 13:26, 30 April 2006 (UTC)

Excellent! Do you have a source for that? -- Visviva 15:47, 30 April 2006 (UTC)
This does seem to be confirmed by various sources including [1], although of course Korean sources do not provide a basis for judging the romanization... Adding to article. -- Visviva 08:29, 5 May 2006 (UTC)

Assassination[edit]

From what I've read, King Gongmin was not assasinated by Yi In-im. In fact, he was killed by his enunch, Choi Man-Seng 최만생 and some young men he was recently having relations with. One of the young men, Hong Ryun(홍륜) had relations with one of Gongmin's concubines, which led to Gongmin's anger. So before Gongmin could kill him, Hong Ryun and the enunch killed Gongmin in his sleep. -- Darkstyx 08:31, 20 Jan 2007 (UTC)

A Frozen Flower[edit]

Why is that movie even mentioned here? It's a fiction, set in the time of King Gongmin, but doesn't offer itself as being "about King Gongmin", or that it represents anything historical about him. This kind of material is not encyclopedic. I will remove it if no one responds with reliable sources for inclusion within a few weeks. ArishiaNishi (talk) 21:55, 18 October 2012 (UTC)

I removed it. The citation states "If we assume that the king in question was Gongmin," but the film maker makes no such claim. They never claim the king in the film is Gongmin, nor did they name the character Gongmin. ArishiaNishi (talk) 23:30, 24 October 2012 (UTC)
I removed the sentence about him pursuing boys that used an LGBT internet portal as the source. I believe there is information about his sexuality available in historical documents and scholarly works which would meet the reliable source guidelines. Cheers.
