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.
About Oegyujanggak Uigwe?
Concept "A re-blossemed korean flower"
Attempted to vividly express a flower
blossoming from the dark and depressed korea's past
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.
