Gansong Art Museum is Korea’s first private art museum, founded by Jeon Hyeong-pil in 1938. This art gallery deserves a lot of attention, as it helped preserve many artworks and cultural items during the Japanese occupation. It is famous for housing Hunminjeongeum Haerye, which is a document about the principles used to create the consonants and vowels for Hangeul.
