Ok the stupid bitch here is that korean retard that jumps to comclusions so quickly. The viet guy said that he THOUGHT that Ly Long Tuong was the ansestor. obviously he's wrong but why does that make Vietnam garbage? A wannabe China? Same goes for Korea, a wannabe Japan who is just infatuated with American culture. Sure you had TWO international events(maybe more i dont know) but that doesn't make Korea any better than any other country. And besides, the Korean clans came from China in 2000 B.C. anyways. Its not like you guys had invented anything new.
"The 92nd most common last name in China. Li is an ancient name. Bei Zhengli was an official during Zhuan Xu’s reign, in charge of agriculture. His descendents used his first name as their last name to commemorate him. During the Shang Dynasty, a member of the Li family was awarded duke of Li (south west of Zhangzhi in Shanxi). The Li kingdom was brought to an end by the Zhou Dynasty, and Zhou Wu Wang awarded the territory of the Li kingdom to the descendents of Shang Tang. During Chun Qiu period, the Li kingdom was moved to Li Cheng of Shanxi. After the Li kingdom was eliminated by the Jin kingdom, its people began to bear the last name of Li. Hometown: east of Changan in Shaanxi Province."
