20170922 One of the interesting thing in Palace was King and Queen had lived in different room. They didn't live together. King had had a his own living house, and Qween had had a her own place. This is King's living house in the name of Ghang Ryeong Jeon. Ghang Ryeong Jeon means 'wishing peace palace' https://i.imgur.com/tTlV6BBg.jpg https://i.imgur.com/1TaSZab.jpg https://i.imgur.com/zh6S4V7.jpg https://i.imgur.com/veO9DoX.jpg The name of Queen's living house is Gyo Tae Jeon. Gyo Tae Jeon means 'exchanging greatness palace' I was curious what is the greatness when I was a child. Of course, they exchanged Yin and Yang. https://i.imgur.com/ptME9N8g.jpg https://i.imgur.com/a7gjOR3.jpg https://i.imgur.com/veO9DoX.jpg In Choson Dynasty, it was really important for king's family to have a boy who could link king's reign. They could not satisfy only one option to have a heir of king out of Queen. So king should have a chance to sleep with his concubines. When King want to have a child with Queen, he went to Queen's living house. This kind of living style must be bad and sad for Queen. The living place of King and Queen was very close. So Queen knows which concubine was entered into King's place. It must be a curse to Queen. But Queen never have expressed her feelings. There are common structures in architectural perspective in King and Queen's house There were no rooftops binding the roof tiles. https://i.imgur.com/v0xITMEg.jpg To receive heaven's power directly, they made King and Queen's living place without rooftops. Ley's look at other buildings in the Palace You could look at the white rooftops binding the tyles https://i.imgur.com/ZTI3PaG.jpg This is the hidden secrete of Palace. Then let's look at the inside of their house. https://i.imgur.com/vJHHDUU.jpg https://i.imgur.com/lMMSei9.jpg https://i.imgur.com/mVlcoJr.jpg Inside of King and Queen's house was as humble as an ordinary novel family.
