China, which had been such a powerful and dynamic model for Korea and Japan between the 6th & 8th centuries degenerated, broke apart, and collapsed by the end of the 9th century. China was no longer a valid model, and Korea and Japan set out on separate trajectories that were quite evident by the 12th century. In what ways did Korea and Japan begin to differ from the Chinese model? Differ from each other?
