8 In the late 19th century, Korean government NEVER clearly marks

 Ulleungdo and Liancourt Rocks(Takeshima/Dokdo) as its territories.

 

Anyway, check by yourself its own location, distance and figure.

It is clear that Usan on 大韓全図 and 大韓與地図 is Ulleungdos Jukdo

Usan on those maps are never Liancourt Rocks.

See the 大韓全図 and 大韓與地図. The Ulleungdos description is quite similar with typical detail map of Ulleungdo.

On this map, Liancourt Rocks is no described. Usan is surely Ulluengdos Jukdo.

1900.大韓與地圖

 

On this map, Liancourt Rocks is no described. Usan is surely Ulluengdos Jukdo.
