Who Is the Jeongjo of Joseon (Personal name Yi San)?

He was the 22nd of 27 kings of the Joseon Dynasty. A king with many accomplishments. Many Koreans think that if Jeongjo had stayed on the throne a little longer, Korea would not have been invaded by Japan.

He consecrated Hwaseong, which is said to be even larger than Gyeongbokgung Palace.


Jeongjo came to the throne through a series of twists and turns. A father killed by his grandfather, endless opposition, intrigue, and hardship. Through these difficulties, he cleaned up the chaos of his early reign and demonstrated his abilities as an absolute monarch.
