4 / Korea Located on the peninsula on the eastern end of the Asian continent, Korea consists of a peninsula stretching from north to south and over 3,200 islands. Korea forms a Northeast Asia with Japan and China. The north side of Korea touches Manchuria in China and the Maritime Province of Siberia in Russia across the Yalu River and the Tumen River. The east and south side face the Japanese mainland across the East Sea and the South Sea. The west side faces the Chinese Mainland across the Yellow Sea. The major administrative divisions in Korea are a special city (Seoul), a metropolitan autonomous city (Sejong), six metropolitan cities (Busan, Incheon, Daejeon, Daegu, Gwangju, and Ulsan), special self-governing province (Jeju), and eight provinces. When referring to the history of Korea, we call it a long history of five thousand years. This phrase came from the foundation of our history, which was the founding of the Gojoseon at 2333 BC, as Dangun Myth mentioned. Korean culture is a history and a wisdom of life that Koreans have lived for five thousand years. / Jeonju Jeonju, which has a history of over a thousand years, keeps the most traditional Korean atmosphere. Jeonju is the land of pansori art, which is in the list of UNESCO World Cultural Heritage. Besides, the city represents Korean traditional culture, such as Hanok Village (the village of Korean traditional houses), Korean dishes, and Hanji (Korean traditional paper). Jeonju is regarded as a city where people can experience the traditions of Korea and the lifestyle of Hanok Village and which keeps the beauty of Korea. Long history and culture have preserved Jeonju as a complete history museum. There are historical sites in various parts of Jeonju, such as Pungnam Gate, Gyeonggijeon, and Geaksa. Among them, Jeonju Hanok Village is the most famous, and Hanok Village has preserved the tradition of Hanok until now. The city was the capital of Baekje, the ancient Korean kingdom and was the origin of the Joseon dynasty, the former Korean kingdom built by Lee Seong-gye. A long history and culture in Jeonju have us feel a mood of old Korean hometown. Moreover, important cultural assets and various cultural facilities in Jeonju make Korean history and traditional culture appeal to people's eyes.
