Transition process and Architectural composition of Prime Jurisdiction office in J oseon Dynasty

Bae Chang-Hyun


Ui-Gum-Bu(義禁府) is regarded as a key organization that reflects the power of the royal authority, mainly because it directly obeys the king’s command and retains the power to punish or pardon government officials for severe crimes such as treason or significant breach of Confucian ethics. For this reason, Ui-Gum-Bu held a higher place in the organizational hierarchy of the government than other similar offices such as Hyung-J o(刑 曹), Sa-Heon-Bu(司憲府) and Po-Do-Cheong(捕盜廳). This characteristic of Ui-Gum-Bu is also evident in the architectural style and composition of the office building. The figures of the Ui-Gum-Bu office is depicted in detail in the paintings listed in Gum-Oh-Gye-Cheop(金吾契帖, a record of Ui-Gum-Bu office meetings, and descriptions in the code book Gum-Oh-Hun-Rog(金吾契帖), both written in 18th century. The purpose of this study is to reveal the overall transition process of the Ui-Gum-Bu office building from the beginning until its demolition in the early 20th century. Based on research materials of 18th century, its architectural composition and characteristics will be dealt in detail.
