Munseong's reign was typical of late Unified Silla, with rampant strife and uprisings. Examples include the 841 rebellion of Hong Pil, the 846 rebellion of Jang Bogo (after he failed to marry his daughter into the royal line), as well as the treason of Kim Sik in 849.
The earlier part of his reign was marked by relatively active trade and commerce with both Japan and Tang China. This was due to Jang Bogo's role in securing the major shipping routes.
