They occasionally polished each other's morals, enjoyed music and songs together, and landscape sightseeing. There was no place that wasn't visited by them no matter how far it might be. Through these process, they were able to know the right and wrong characters of these men. The person with virtuous character among them was recommended to the Royal Court."
