    ☆Changho(traditional window) accounts for a very high proportion of Korean architecture. In particular, most of the walls of palaces are treated with changho. Therefore, Korean changho is an important factor in determining architectural designs, and they are of many types and sizes, requiring advanced techniques and techniques.
    Therefore, to make traditional Korean windows, skilled craftsmen(changho-jang) with many years of experience are required. Changho-jang is classified as a somok-jang, because somok-jangs are in charge of decorative parts while daemok-jangs are in charge of the structural parts of the building.
    Changho-jang has become an essential part of increasing perfection with its delicacy.

    Lee Jong-han, the holder, has been engaged in changho production since 1963, and is recognized as having related functions by participating in repairing changho's of many historical sites' including the Hapcheon Haeinsa Temple, Yecheon Yongmunsa Temple.

    The value of protection is high, such as the fact that there are only a few windows nationwide that produce windows essential to traditional architecture and that the foundation for transmission is relatively difficult due to low profitability.

    Built in 1395, Gyeongbokgung Palace is also commonly referred to as the Northern Palace because its location is furthest north when compared to the neighboring palaces of Changdeokgung (Eastern Palace) and Gyeonghuigung (Western Palace) Palace. Gyeongbokgung Palace is arguably the most beautiful, and remains the largest of all five palaces.

    The premises were once destroyed by fire during the Imjin War (1592-1598). However, all of the palace buildings were later restored under the leadership of Heungseondaewongun during the reign of King Gojong (1852-1919).

    Remarkably, the most representative edifices of the Joseon dynasty, Gyeonghoeru Pavilion and the pond around Hyangwonjeong Pavillion have remained relatively intact. The raised dias and stone markers of Geunjeongjeon showcase the representative art style of their time.

    The National Palace Museum of Korea is located south of Heungnyemun Gate, and the National Folk Museum is located on the eastern side of Hyangwonjeong Pavillion.
