The oldest known written record of the royal protocols of the Joseon Dynasty composed in the Korean alphabet "hangeul" was recently discovered in France. Here’s more on the historical find.

This painting shows King Jeongjo touring a military exercise at the Suwon-Hwaseong Fortress. The king, surrounded by his servants and the soldiers practicing military arts, are portrayed in great detail. There is also an explanation written in the Korean alphabet "hangeul." The painting is from "Seongyeok Uigwe," one of the 13 Jeongni Uigwe protocols kept at the National Library of France.

[Soundbite] Prof. Kim Jun-hyuk(Hanshin University) : "This is a precious historic document that sheds light on the military rituals of the Joseon Dynasty."

The remaining 12 books contain "hangeul" records about King Jeongjo's visits to Hwaseong and the entire construction process of the Hwaseong Fortress. The newly discovered protocols are believed to be the oldest, as they were presumably compiled 30 years earlier than the protocols that were written during King Sunjo's reign in 1828. It has been confirmed that Jeongni Uigwe were taken to France from Joseon during King Gojong's reign in 1887 and donated to the National Institute for Oriental Languages and Civilizations.

[Soundbite] Prof. Jeon Kyung-mok(Academy of Korean Studies) : "It is meaningful because it was written separately in hangeul so that King Jeongjo's mother could read it."

The discovered protocols will contribute to studying the history of the Korean alphabet "hangeul" and the Korean nation.
