The history of the royal palaces in Seoul started with the beginning of the Chosun dynasty (1392). There were five palaces standing in the center of Seoul, reflecting the power of the Korean kingdom. The prosperous and peaceful era came to end by the turn of the century when Korea was engulfed by the turmoil of modern world history, fuelled by imperialism. During the Japanese occupation, 80-90% of palace buildings were demolished by Japanese. The Korean government launched a long-term restoration project in 80s. Currently, about 20-30% of the original palace buildings were restored. Let's support the restoration project until the places regain the 100% former glory.

서울에는 다섯 궁궐이 구한말때까지 그 위엄과 아름다움을 자랑하고 있었습니다. 법궁인 경복궁 (북궐), 창덕궁과 창경궁 (동궐), 경희궁과 경운궁 (서궐)에는 전각들이 빼곡하게 있었습니다. 그러나 일제침략과 함께 궁궐들이 시련를 격게됩니다. 일제는 조선 자주독립과 국권의 상징인 궁궐을 계획적으로 치밀히 파괴하기 시작합니다. 무수한 전각들이 경매로 일본으로 팔려갔고 멀쩡한 건물들이 헐려나갔습니다. 총독부건물을 경복궁 한가운데 짓는가하면 박람회 개최를 빌미로 원래 궁궐정원을 파괴하고 왜식 정원을 만들고 궁궐과는 상관없는 석탑과 부도를 세웠습니다. 또 창경궁을 동물원으로 만들고 일본국화인 벛꽃을 잔뜩 심어 유원지로 만들었고, 경희궁과 경운궁안에 일본인 자제들을 위한 학교를 세웠습니다. 이렇게 일제침략기 동안 궁궐의 80-90%가 파괴됩니다. 그러나 해방후 우리궁궐은 또 다른 서글픈 세월을 껵게됩니다. 우리의 역사의식의 부재로 복원은 고사하고 근 50 여년간 정부는일제가 세운 총독부 건물을 유익하다고 쓰고 국민들은 봄이면 창경원에 벛꽃놀이를 갔습니다. 다행히도 80년대에 궁궐복원 계획이 세워지고 지금도 진행중입니다. 2010까지 경복궁과 창덕궁은 40% 정도 복원되고 나머지 궁들은 20-30% 복원된다고 합니다, 우리궁궐은 전통적 궁궐양식을 참고면서도 자연 지형을 거스리지 않고, 왕실위엄을 세우면서도 청빈의 바른 도리를 어기지 않은 세계에서 유래를 찿아 볼 수 없는 귀중한 보물입니다. 100% 복원까지는 갈길이 멀고 또 재정적으로도 여러 어려움이 있는듯 하니 여러분의 정성어린 관심과 지지를 부탁드립니다.
사진들은 저의것이 아닙니다.
It's heartbreaking to see anybody would intentionally demolish great works of art, a great part of human history, for fascist agenda. Even the Nazi Germany didn't demolish the Versailles when they occupied France. You really have to hand it to those Japanese Imperialists for being almost anti-humanity.
Bad japs.. :(
Long Live Korea!!!!!!

stfu, go check out my channel, dumbshit. you can't even speak Korean. dude I live IN seoul fuckshit.
I said, Korean war didn't harm much of the palace, you shithead. Japanese destroyed most of it because of construction renovations.
? wtf are you? I live right next to chang duk palace fool. Retard, Yeah Japs damaged the palaces fucking bad, But during the Korean war, The Main Gate of GyeongBuk Palace, Gwanghwae Gate was burned to ash, and N.Korean soldiers tried to loot the Chang-duk Palace, But the Last Empress Yoon prevented it.
Read up history? please your just retarded.
Korean war didn't affect the palace much. It was only the 35 years of occupation that affected the palaces. Read up history, dumbass.
Actually Japan destroyed 80~90% of the palaces because of construction of buildings for their own good. Many rare Korean artifacts can be shown in Japanese museum and private collectors.
Yep, what had japanese even contributed or even invented in their past history rather than being taking things from Korea and China in past???
this is what happened to Korean Royal Palaces 1st Disfigured and Damaged By Japanese 2nd Torn apart during the Korean war 3rd Damaged more as Military Regime tries to re-build using Concrete 4th Damaged by Koreans trying to build buildings... 5th re-construction in a slow pain in the ass pace
See, I agree with you. Everyone is blaming Korea for things that arent even true.
You should listen to your own words. Yes, a lot was destroyed during the Korean war, but the truth of the matter is, Japan destroyed most of the palaces before hand, leaving almost nothing left to destroy.
Had Japan been left as it was, it would be a much more barbaric race. It's culture was given to by the Koreans and a little directly from China. Also, then the Japanese pirates used to raid Korean villages and take potters, poets, and scholars.
Korea never took culture from Japan, I mean, why take culture from a country that has little of its own? Check out the history of Japan and tell me if they ever had much to offer other than their samurai (which came much later).
I feel bad for Korea. I don't know for sure, but is it really true that 'Korea stole Japan's culture?' I dont know.. but I've heard alot from others that Korea's culture was given to them. Now their mad at them? i dont know haha.
Is it just me or is any one else having a problem with the audio for this video?
South Koreans are pussies. North Koreans are broke as fuck, That fucking Island should be bombed. To bad Japs didn't kill you off. LOL Instead you COPY everything from Japanese, American and Chinese. Fucking losers.
damn those japanese! i hope they dont have the guts to visit this place coz it will just reminds korean people what there country did !
Hi, not only did they destroy many Korean buildings but they stole a lot of artifacts. This goes to other places like China.
It's so sad see how Kyongbok palace was before japanese's occupation. I'm italian and i'm studying korean history, not a lot of people knows about this cruelty to art of a nation, i'm happy that there are teacher like you who wants to explain this. Sorry for my english and good luck!
