Usage notes edit

Even among modern Koryo-mar speakers, who are mainly heritage speakers and more proficient in Russian, 한국 (han'guk) appears to also be in common use, possibly due to influence from South Korea's increased economic prestige in the past few decades and the fact that non-elderly Koryo-saram who speak Korean virtually all speak and learn standard Korean from South Korea. 조선 (joseon) seems to used particularly by more older speakers when referring to Korea as a whole, though 고려 seems to have largely replaced this.
