Early medieval history

From 698 to 936, the kingdom of Balhae occupied northern Korea and parts of Manchuria and Primorsky Krai, consisting of the Nanai, the Udege, and descendants of the Tungus-speaking people and the people of the recently fallen Goguryeo kingdom of Korea. The vicinity of Tongjiang was settled at this moment by Funie Mohe tribes (Hanja/Hanzi: 拂涅靺鞨; pinyin: Fúniè Mòhé; Korean불열말갈). These tribes were submitted to Balhae Kingdom under King Mun's reign (737-793).

Later, King Seon (r.818-830), administrated their territories by creating a prefecture in the neighbourhood : The Dongpyong Prefecture (Korean동평부; Hanja東平府) with Yiju (Korean: 이주; Hanja: 伊州), present-day Dangbi (Chinese: 当壁; pinyin: Dāngbì) as its administrative centre.
