Buyeo, South Chungcheong Province
Samchungsa, a shrine built in 1957 in memory of three loyal officials of Baekje in the mid-7th century - Seong Chung, Heung Su and Gye Baek. When Uijawang, the last king of Baekje, governed his kingdom very badly, Seong Chung frequently advised the king in vain to change his ways. Angered at his advice the king put him in prison. He refused to eat and later died there. Heung Su desperately advised the king to keep the strategic military point of Tanhyeon, when the unified forces of Silla and China's Tang dynasty invaded Baekje. When General Kim Yu-Sin of Silla, commanding a military force of 50,000, attacked Baekje, General Gye Baek of Baekje, with an army of 5,000, fought heroically but they were all killed during the battle at Hwangsanbeol Field, in the year 660 CE.
