Diplomatic Letter from the Joseon King, Appendix (detail), King Gwanghaegun, Joseon dynasty, dated 1617 (Important Cultural Property)

Records Related to Envoys from Joseon Korea, which include a group of our museum collection of documents (Important Cultural Property), were added this year to the UNESCO Memory of the World Register.
In particular, the documents from 1617 is a significant evidence of the restoration of diplomatic relationships between the two countries after the severance during the late 16th century. The diplomacy between the two countries are reflected in the exchanging of diplomatic letters from long ago, filled with the spirit of sincerity and trust.
By the preservation and exhibition of the artifacts, we believe that academic studies regarding the Joseon envoys to Japan shall deepen.
