The purpose of the study is to analyze research issues and materials on the Gwangbokhoe during 1910s. Researches on the Gwangbokhoe have suggested two theories, the Gwangbokhoe in foreign country and restoration and co-existence with the Daehangwangbokdan. The theory of the Gwangbokhoe in the foreign country insists that the Gwangbokhoe was organized at Vladivostok, Russia in 1912, and established branched at Gyeongsang and Chungcheong Province. In other words, widely known Gwangbokhoe was a kind of domestic branch of the Gwangbokhoe in foreign country. Theory of restoration and co-existence insists that Pung-gi Gwangbokdan, organized in 1913, was expanded to the Daehangwangbokhoe in 1915 and restored to Daehangwangbokdan in 1916. Namely, Hanhoon·Woojaeryong·Chaegijung, members of the Daehangwangbokdan restored the Daehangwangbokdan and after restoration, the Daehangwangbokdan was coexisted with the Daehangwangbokhoe. Theory of restoration and co-existence, however, is a false argument due to inappropriate citation on related materials. The theory of the Gwangbokhoe in foreign country is based on the 『高第4018號』 which was made by the Japanese Empire. The 『高第4018號』 was a just information which told that the Gwangbokhoe had been established in the foreign country, but the information was not verified. Thus, from the base information, it cannot be concluded that the Gwangbokhoe was established in the foreign country. Also, theory of restoration and co-existence was solely based on the “Gwangbok dan Yanksa” written by Han hun. It is supposed that the “Gwangbokdan Yanksa” intended to provide legitimacy to Jaegungwangbokdan or Hanhoon made a mistake when he strengthened the activities of the Gwangbokhoe in July, 1917. Thus, it cannot be said that the Daehangwangbokdan was restored in 1916, sole based on the “Gwangbokdan Yanksa”. If the Daehangwangbokdan was restored and co-existed, the restored the Daehangwangbokdan should be verified.
