Kokuryo‘s False History

Two Donggukians are having a conversation at Haklim Hall   about the Kokuryo historical site.
Dongguk: Did you know that I went to Ondal mountain fortress in Danyang yesterday on a school field trip?
Dongsun: Ondal?! You mean the Kokuryo historical sites?  So, how was the trip?
Dongguk: Since my major is Korean History,  it was unique to visit the sites. But we almost got into a fight with a tour guide.
Dongsun: Really? What happened?
Dongguk: Many Chinese tourists were then, and my friends and I could hear their tour guide explaining the historical background of the site. All of the sudden, one of my friends who is proficient in Chinese got angry.
Dongsun: Why was he angry? Did the tour guide say something wrong?
Dongguk: Yes, the tour guide was saying that the wall belongs to the ancient China.
Dongsun: I heard that tour agencies recruit tour guides by evaluating only their foreign language fluency, not their knowledge of history. Maybe the tour guide was Chinese.
Dongguk: Yes, he was Chinese! How can they recruit a guide who has no knowledge of history? It's unbelievable!!
