Eoyeonrye

Event Synopsis

This is a reproduction of a royal banquet of “Eoyeon” that was held to celebrate the 50th birthday of King Yeongjo, the 21st monarch of the Joseon Dynasty, in 1743. While Jinyeon or Jinchan was a feast held for the King’s commanders by the followers, Eoyeon was a feast hosted by the King.
King Yeongjo was served with a feast held by the followers, and in return for it, he held a banquet, so that his sense of duty with the followers was strengthened, and unease and insecurity resulting from factional political strife were resolved to focus on Tangpyeong Politics (a political system) of the King.
