The chart drawn by Sir Robert Dudley in 1646 was revealed just a week ahead of a general assembly meeting of the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) scheduled for April 23 through 27 in Monaco, which may possibly change the name of the waters currently named as the Sea of Japan.
Anyway there are the Mateo Ricci map published on 1602 which draws Sea of Japan already.
I DONT KNOW WHY THEY DONT ATTACHED THE EVIDENCE OF MAP ON ENGLISH EDITION NEWS??? IT IS BECAUSE THOSE CHEATING EASILY DETECTED BY EUROPEAN! LOL
Accordnig to Korean and Japanese Yonhap news, "Sea of Korea" on the Sea of Japan and "Sea of Japan" on the southwest and east of Japan Kiusiu island.
(Translate;Today he confiemd that "mistery of the Sea, chapter 17 chart of Asia countries which draws "Sea of Korea" on east korean peninsula and "Sea of Japan" on the South of Kiusiu (kagosima) island")
OK lets check this map!
The map from Yonhap news
First of all,You can easily find " Mare di Corai" just east of Korea.
Second, it is bit difficult to check, but you can read two "Mare di Giapon", east and west of Kiusiu island.
Their explain finish here.
But...keep serching. Something written right side of double-head bird symbol, draw in the center of this map..
This Korean media photo is vague and difficult to detect what it is written.
So, check more clear image of very similar Dudley 1646 map stoared in Finland natinale library.

Then choose P105-106 _kr201619_maps12.pdf （12.66MB）
Again, something is written right side of double-head bird symbol
”Il Mare Il Mare Sewenvorionale de lappone o Giappone”
(North Japan or habon Sea)
Yes, this map says Sea of Japan is "NORTH SEA OF JAPAN"
"Mare di Corai " is drawn at the just a east coast of Corean peninsula. It is not the position of Sea of Japan.
Yes, now you realise that stupid revisionist Korean Kim Munguil's typical method of historical distorture. He use vague map images and wrong map explanation to decieve Korean and world wide people with WICKED AMBITIOUS to justifies historical distorture for Korean national pride!
Ok, let me check other Dudley's 1646 map.
1646. ASIA CARTA DI CIASETE PIU MODERNA by R.Dudley
you can check the word of "Mer de corai" at the east coastal area of Chosun（Korean) peninsula and " Oceano Boriane Del Gappone" at Sea of Japan position.
That is to say, judging from those two Dudley's map , "Mare di Corai" means not the Sea of Japan today . It is just shows just a "East Coast of Korean peninsula".
I really don't understand why Korean scholor always abuses those stupid method of historical distorture and trimming. Shame on him.
I know everone here already underestand "the name of Sea of Japan" is NOT from the Japan's annexatin of Korea on 1910. the explorer La Perouse and Krusenstern who sailed around Sea of Japan and Korean coast, they draw two sea name, One is "Sea of Japan" and the other is "Strait of Korea" and makes it grobal standard around 1780-1830. La Perouse and Krusenstern established the definiation of Sea of Japan today, that is to say, Sea of Japan is the sea between
Tartary Str, La Perouse Str, Tsugar Str, Strait of Korea today.
On the other hand , Mer du Coree finally transformed to Brougton bay, and East Korean gulf today. Korea should rename East Korean Gulf to "East Sea" if they want. But,,,it is nonsense and arrogant claim they request name change of the Sea of Japan .
