      Chinese textbooks give seriously distorted accounts of Korea's past, analysis of 126 Chinese history books finds.

      According to the analysis announced by Grand National Party lawmaker Park Young-ah on Wednesday based on data from the Northeast Asian History Foundation, most Chinese history textbooks inaccurately shrink the territory of the ancient Korean kingdom of Koguryo to a tiny realm within the Korean Peninsula.

      Many of the books also disparage some parts of Korean history.
