Unhyeongung (운현궁), or Unhyeongung Royal Residence, is a royal residence located in the business district of Seoul where Gojong lived before he was emperor. The residence was owned by Heungseon Daewongun, the father of Gojong, who lived here for most of his life.
Ordered by Queen Mother Jo, the residence was renovated into a grand complex with four gates.
Following the death of Heungseon Daewongun, the residence was inherited by his eldest son Yi Jaemyeon and after his grandson Yi Junyong. After the Korean War, most of the residence was sold reducing its size considerably.
