While during the late Silla and early Koryo the influential Kyo faction had indeed made life uncomfortable for the newly arising Son transmission, by the time of Kihwa's career, it was no longer the case that the Kyo circle (typified by Hwaom and Consciousness­only scholars) were making any serious challenge to the Son position, as the Son schools had already held the upper hand for centuries.  Thus, both Chinul and Kihwa wrote in such a way as to revalorize scriptural study within the Son camp, supporting their positions with solid examples and rigorous logic, based in essence­function thinking.

The Haengjang says: One night, while taking a refreshing walk to conquer the demon of sleep, suddenly, without intention, he blurted out a verse, saying: "Walking, walking, suddenly I turn my head.  Yet despite his enlightened "freedom and ease," Kihwa was engaged in a series of difficult tasks toward the end of his life, as he was compelled to defend the Buddhist church against the increasingly strident attacks from the Neo­Confucian element that had inexorably moved into the center of political power.

He is best known for his four major works: (1) the Taebanggwang won'gak sudara youi kyong sorui (Commentary on the Sutra of Perfect Page 28 Enlightenment); (2) his Kumgang panyaparamilgyong o ka hae sorui (Commentary on the Redacted Edition of Five Commentaries on the Diamond Sutra; usually referred to by the short title of O ka hae); (3) the Son chong yonggajip kwaju sorui (Sub­commentary on the Compilation of Yung­chia); and (4) a treatise on the intrinsic unity of the "three teachings" of Confucianism, Taoism, and Buddhism, entitled Hyon chong non (Exposition of the Correct).
