⊙ What kind of place is Bukchon?
Bukchon is the gathering town for high-ranking people in Joseon Dynasty and is located between Gyeongbokgung Palace and Changdeokgung Palace. Bukchon is called “a museum in urban” because there are many cultural assets and a variety of folk materials. The meaning of Bukchon is that there is in the north of Cheonggyecheon stream, Namchon is in the south of Cheonggyecheon stream and Joongchon is along Cheonggyecheon stream. Joongchon was a residence of Joongin but bukchon was the center of supreme power of Joseon Dynasty. Bukchon was the center of independence in the modern times and of Korean politics in the period of turbulence after that. Masters of Neo-Confucianism like Mang Sa-Seong, Seong Sam-Moon, etc lived there in Joseon Dynasty and main people of Independence movement and Korean modern politics like Kim Ok-Gun, Son Byeong-Hee, Han Yong-Un, Yeo Un-Hyung, etc lived in modern times.
