The world's first movable type printing technology was invented and developed in China by the Han Chinese printer Bi Sheng between the years 1041 and 1048.
In Korea, the movable metal type printing technique was invented in the early thirteenth century during the Goryeo Dynasty.
In the West, the invention of an improved movable type mechanical printing technology in Europe is credited to the German printer Johannes Gutenberg in 1450.
