In 1782 of the Joseon Dynasty, important royal records were

moved in Ganghwado, and ‘Oegyujanggak’ was the place where 

these royal records were archived. About 6 thousand books

owned in this place are called “Oegyujanggak Uigwe.”

Uigwe refers to a book of ritual or ceremonial document that

records in detail the entire procedure of royal rituals and

ceremonies of Joseon Dynasty of Korea like a comprehensive

report. It is a significant record that shows the governance

philosophy and administration system of the Joseon Dynasty

as well as one of the representative cultural heritage in Korea.

It was listed in UNESCO's Memory of the World Register in 2007.

Upon the outbreak of Byeonginyangyo, the French campaign

against Korea in 1866, the Oegyujanggak Uigwe was looted

together with many other relics of Korea.

Film sketch

Korea that was the center of invasion and pillage has gone

through the poignant history. Countless cultural assets were

looted and most of these haven’t been returned.

Thus, the homecoming of the Oegyujanggak Uigwe is

considered to be very meaningful in terms of historical aspect.

With this, there was an attempt to correct the historical facts, 
share the joy of recovering the lost cultural assets of Korea,

and derive interest in the heritage of Korea among Koreans.
