South Korea and China belong to the same Confucian cultural circle, and there are many similarities in culture. But in terms of the application, China often lags behind South Korea. In 2005, the Korean Dragon Boat Festival was successfully applied; after the failure of the Chinese Dragon Boat Festival, it took lessons and finally succeeded in the application in 2009. Next, in 2009, "Dong Yi Bao Jian" (Korean: 동의보감) was successful in the application of the book; followed by Chinese acupuncture and moxibustion, the successful application in 2010. In 2013, South Korea made a successful application for wintering kimchi culture; in contrast to Chinese food, it failed two times, and it has not been successful yet. The cultural foundation of these projects in South Korea originated from China. In the process of applying for the legacy, it has formed a strong competition for China, which has made China's declaration and protection of world cultural heritage more challenging than ever. In addition to strong measures, South Korea has succeeded in Koreanizing Chinese heritage and has been recognized by international agencies. Taking Changdeokgung Palace as an example, this paper studies how to ignore the Chinese elements of Korean cultural heritage and build its "independence", and hopes to provide important inspiration for the declaration and protection of China's future cultural heritage.
