Not long after the confederation was formed around Gaya, Gaya began to interact directly with China.  In 479, King Haji received a government post from the southern Chinese dynasty of Qi. I know you think it's a big deal to get a seat in government from ChinaAt that time, Gaya was recognized as an equal country like Goguryeo and Baekje, not as a political group made up of confederacy, which was established in diplomatic relations with China, a powerful nation  Gaya, which was recognized as an official country in the international community, exerted great power in the trilateral relationship.In 481, King Jangsu of Goguryeo attacked Silla to expand his power to the southGaya sent reinforcements with Baekje to help Silla.Meanwhile, Gaya began to expand its influence toward Baekje.At that time, Baekje was going through a great ordeal.In 475, King Jangsu of Goguryeo invaded Baekje and the capital city of Hansung fellEven King Gaero was captured and killed.  The rest of the Baekje Kingdom fled to the south and settled a temporary capital in Gongju, Chungnan.There was a power struggle within the ruling class and there was constant confusion.Today, the area of Seomjin River, including Namwon, Imsil, and Gwangyang, as well as the Jirisan area, including Geochang, Hamyang, and Sancheong, occupied a large area of territory including the western part of Gyeongsangnam-do and the eastern part of Jeollanam-do  Baekje was furious when it lost its territory to Gaya, which had been under its rule.  The strength of Gaya was so formidable that it did not dare to counterattack.  Gaya was not a small country without power.It was growing into a country that stood shoulder to shoulder with Goguryeo, Baekje, and Silla
