  Literary Works
Literary work about archery compared with its long history is rather very small in number.
The oldest book of its kind is Gunrye(Martial customs) article of ¡¸Gukjoworyeseorye¡¹published in the early Chosun era.
There are others, such as ¡¸Muyetongji¡¹and various books of ordnance, where we can find records of archery and archery etiquette.
Yet, the most comprehensive work on archery have to be the ¡¸Archery of Chosun¡¹published in early 20th century while under the Japanese imperialistic rule.
Other than that there are records of Nogi(Arrow launchers) in ¡¸Hunguksinjogigyedosul,¡¹ ¡¸Hunguksinjogungidosul¡¹ and in¡¸Nohae¡¹.
As for documents concerning archery there is Gopung a ritual held during the King's inspection of the provinces in which reward was given to those who served the King when he should hit the bull's eye.
