According to Movius' dualistic theory of stone culture, East Asia is a cultural zone without bifacial stone tools. However, since the excavation of the Jeongok-ri site in the late 1970s, the results of research accumulated in East Asia for the past 40 years deny the Movius hypothesis. This study aims to examine the validity of the Movius model in detail by examining the latest data on the remains of bifaces from the Asian continent from a global perspective. To achieve this goal, this study first briefly reviewed the current status of Paleolithic research in Asia by region, and then discussed in detail why the Movius line sensu lato or sensu stricto should no longer continue. Compared to the current era when Movius was active, much more Paleolithic remains have been excavated and investigated in Asian countries, and research methods have also developed incomparably. However, the study of the Paleolithic still has not escaped from the discourse of Movius, a remnant of the 19th century ideological system. In order to overcome this phenomenon, this study sought to find out the technological diversity hidden in the morphological unity of bifaces, and to identify the fictitiousness of the dualistic stone culture epistemology implied by the Movius hypothesis. Meanwhile, in the domestic academia, the research achievements of neighboring countries have not yet been properly introduced. Therefore, this study is meaningful in that it introduces the trends of the world Paleolithic academia to the domestic academia and compares and analyzes various characteristics of the Paleolithic on the Korean Peninsula with those of the surrounding areas. Lastly, this study attempted to estimate the age of the Jeongok-ri site, which is still at a standstill, by comparing and analyzing it with the sites around the Korean peninsula, and according to this, it is estimated that the bifaces of Jeongok-ri site appeared from the last stage of Middle Pleistocene or the early stage of Upper Pleistocene.
