This event has ended.

Yu Man-ju, born in 1755 when the modern-day city of Seoul was known as Hanyang, consistently kept a journal for around 13 years from January 1, 1775, when he was 21 years old, until just before his death on December 14, 1787. Yu Man-ju titled his journal Heumyong, and in it he meticulously recorded not only daily events as they unfolded, but also his inner conflicts. Among all the precious diary entries left by Yu Man-ju, this exhibition focuses on the year 1784; through his life, it offers a glimpse of scenes from Hanyang and the daily lives of those living there.
