In "EuiMoonBubRyool" chapter 4, Yuchang criticized previous doctors since "damaged by wet in autumn" written in "Somun" must be corrected as "damaged by dry in autumn". The reason why the sentence must be corrected is that dry and damp are different atmosphere. He tried to explain with changes of season and the rapid pulse in autumn is said to be a contraindiction in "Naekyung" and it supports Autumn dry theory. He criticized previous doctors about many incorrect points of dry disease throu호 various aspects. Criticism on Dongwon's treatment, Dangye's medical theory and not having a treatment, and Mujungsoon's treatment and etc. are the examples. Symtoms and treatment of Dry disease that Yuchang commented helped in deepening the contents and widening the general understanding of the disease.
