    Stone structures refer to the foundations of the base, such as the base, stone, stone, and hexagonal axes where wooden structures are built. In order to build a stone structure, the strength, water pressure, and acupressure of the stone must be taken into account and the geometric principle must be understood. To become a master of stone structures, one must go through a long probationary period, overcome physical exhaustion, and have long experience and innate qualities.

    Im Dong-jo is one of the few craftsmen who continue the tradition of building stone structures in Korea. In 1969, at the age of 15, he began to learn to work with his brother-in-law, who was working on stone structures. In particular, a brother-in-law of mentor, angio was damaged during Japanese occupation in 1968, Gwanghwamun restoration project who participated in the craftsman. Gwanghwamun, which was restored at that time, moved 13 meters east of Gwanghwamun in 2006 as part of a project to find its original location.

    At that time, the owner was in charge of the relocation and restoration of the Six Axis of Gwanghwamun.

    In addition to the base and hexagonal axis of wooden buildings, Im Dongjo also implements tasks such as dismantling and repairing already installed stone structures such as piers, handrails and stone pagodas by applying traditional techniques. In recognition of this ability, he participated in the restoration project of the five major palaces in Seoul. Recently, he was in charge of creating the foundation of the stone pagoda in the dismantling and restoration project of the Stone Pagoda in Mireuksa Temple Site.

    Gwanghwamun is the main gate to the south of Gyeongbokgung Palace. It means "the great virtue of wages reflects the whole country."

    Built in 1395, a pair of hatch sculptures are located on both sides of Gwanghwamun, a two-story pavilion. There are three Hongyemun (Archimun) on the stone pillars of Gwanghwamun. The middle door was the king's, and the other left and right doors were the servants' doors.

    On the ceiling of the gate in the middle of Gwanghwamun, there is an abacus. Gwanghwamun was destroyed twice by the Korean War, and on August 15, 2010, some restoration works were completed except for Woldae and Haitai.

    In modern times, the name "Gwanghwamun" itself is not only used as a castle gate, but also as a common name for Sejong-ro in Beopjeong-dong, including Sejong-daero and Gwanghwamun Square.

    In fact, the Sejong-daero intersection, where Sejong-daero, Jongno-gu and Saemunan-ro intersect, is about 600 to 700 meters away from Gwanghwamun, but it is often called "Gwanghwamun intersection (intersection)".

    The Uijeongbu and Yukjo government offices were established to perform key administrative functions since the Joseon Dynasty, and this area is one of the places where Seoul's history is implied along with Sungnyemun Gate.

    In other words, it is one of the landmarks in Seoul.

    The Seoul Metropolitan Government spent 380 billion won to complete the 5.84km section on September 30, 2005, starting with the demolition of the Cheonggyecheon High School on July 1, 2003, in front of the Dong-A Ilbo building in Gwanghwamun, to the Sindap Railroad Bridge in Seongdong-gu.

    The Cheonggyecheon restoration project has a positive aspect in that it has torn down the old Cheonggye Pass, which used to be a nuisance, provided citizens with rest areas in the city center, and created new tourist attractions.

    In fact, about 190 million Koreans and foreigners visited the stream for 10 years from 2005 to 2015.
