Seunggwangjae (Jeonju Hanok Village)

Seunggwangjae, meaning 'the house succeeded to light,' holds a special place in Korean history. This themed living center, overseen by the Royal Family Support Group, is a unique blend of tradition and modernity. It was established in Jeonju City after the purchase of four private houses in 2004, with the aim of providing a residence for the last imperial grandson of Joseon, Yi Seok.

Yi Seok, the 11th son of Euiwang, once graced the Korean music scene as a popular singer in the 1970s, with hits like 'House of Dove.' Seunggwangjae serves as his residence while also offering visitors a chance to experience traditional Hanok house living.

As you step inside this charming house, the soft tinkling of wind chimes under the eaves extends a warm welcome. There, you'll find a collection of framed pictures and writings of historical significance. Notable among them is an autographed letter from King Gojong, dating back to 1905, addressed to the French President. In the letter, King Gojong seeks assistance in exposing Japan's attempts to denounce Korea's autonomy and the independence of the Joseon Dynasty. Another framed picture captures Euiwang, the fifth son of King Gojong, during his youth, offering a glimpse into the royal family's history.
