Actually local writing systems related to idu and hyangchal began to develop during the Three Kingdoms period.you see? korean like you are the reason why we chinese hate korean. we never have any hatred before toward korean until korean become cocky and start to throw insult toward us, start distorting and fabricating historical facts.
first, korean nationalist like you must understand what civilization is.
one of many requirement to be called as civilization is to have their own writting system. what you called as "liao civilization" did not have any form of writting system, neither korean. you korean only have your own writting system in 1446 ad, which is very late.
yes, our chinese civilization are special, the only one cradle of civilization in east asia, the only one that very different than the other 3 cradle of civilization, proven by world archeologist, you korean just butthurt waking up in this modern time realized there is nothing that can be proud of from your own society.
you korean ultra nationalist love to claim and related with altaic people while in reality nothing from korean are related with altaic people at all.

your so called korean language according to alexander vovin are paleo siberian aka tungus language, never altaic. tungus people are different from altaic, tungus people originated from around lake baikal siberia, while altaic people originated from altai mountain central asia (west mongolia).
Altaic is a good concept for a culture/linguistic interaction sphere where many cultures come together and influence each other. Most of the Altaic features of Korean may even date to the Mongol occupation.
He was demonstrating the similarities to prove that typological similarities don't mean a genetic (in a linguistic sense) relationship. However, the fact that it typologically is quite like the Siberian languages (and a couple very old loanwords) indicates to me it was probably once in a Sprachbund with some of them.1. Paleo-Siberian and Tungus[ic] are not synonymous terms.
2. Alexander Vovin never claimed that Korean is related to Tungusic or Paleo-Siberian. Quite the opposite.
3. You're oversensitive. Not every claim coming from Koreans is nationalistic rambling.
I recommend re-reading Vovin's publication again, more carefully this time.
