In other words, 1000+ years ago Japan + Korea + Vietnam was part of China, which explains WHY & HOW their ancient history is the same as Chinese.
For example, Koreans claimed to have 'invented' Chinese language --- from their historical point of view this is TRUE.
Why you ask?! Let me explain: Koreans are believed to be MAINLY derived from a small community in central china that traveled and set up in modern-day Korea. This small community existed in a time of warring states, and it split up into 2 ===> One moved to Korea, and the other to Viet Nam. There may be some truth is this, as Koreans and Vietnamese share a characteristically similar flat face and large pronounced jaw-line.
Anyways, either way Japan-Korea-Vietnam are DIRECT DESCENDANTS from China. It doesn't really matter which "tribe" or "region" specific they come from.
