Situated just a few steps from Gyeongbokgung Palace Station on Seoul Subway Line 3, the National Palace Museum of Korea (Director: Kim Dong-Young) specializes in the collection, research, and exhibition of heritage artifacts from the Joseon Dynasty royal court (1392–1910).
The museum is temporarily closed as part of efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19, so the special exhibition Military Rituals–Symbols of the Joseon Dynasty’s Military Power will be first unveiled virtually on January 19 through online platforms including the museum website, YouTube, and others.
The National Palace Museum of Korea (Director: Kim Dong-Young), an affiliate of the Cultural Heritage Administration of Korea, is presenting the special exhibition Military Rituals – Symbols of the Joseon Dynasty’s Military Power. This exhibition introducing military endeavors and rituals in the Joseon royal court will be held from January 19 through March 1, 2021.
Military rites were one category of five Joseon state ceremonies with systemized protocols and procedures considered necessary to govern the state, known collectively as the Five State Rites. The military rites signified that the king had supreme command of the armed forces, and they also served to enhance the authority of the Joseon royal court.
The exhibition aims to use these rites to spotlight Joseon kings’ efforts at demonstrating their military command and sustain the dynasty and explore the military endeavors of the Joseon Dynasty.
