The Chinese envoy Xu Jing visited Korea in 1123, and he was so impressed with Korean celadons that he compared them favorably to earlier Chinese court wares, such as those made at the Ru kilns. Ceramics with gray-green glazes were the most widely produced—and favored—wares during the Goryeo dynasty.
