The Silla metalwork, similar to the current needle, was discovered, and the Goguryeo tomb murals and "The Three Kingdoms Period" show that a considerable level of bedding had already been developed since the Three Kingdoms Period. As the bedding continued from the Goryeo and Joseon periods, it was further developed and passed down to this day.
