The name Jeonju was first used in AD 757 (16th year of Shilla King Gyeong-deok), when Wansanju was renamed Jeonju, the name that is still used today. Jeonju has seen 1,250 years of history, and is famous for being one of Korea’s oldest cities. In AD 900, Jeonju was designated as a capital city of the Baekje Dynasty, founded by Gyeon-whon, and later became the birthplace of the Chosun Dynasty’s cultural renaissance. Jeonju was the political and governmental center of Jeollado during the Chosun Dynasty and jurisdiction ranged from Jeollado to Jejudo. Jeonju is the center of Jeollabukdo, as its provincial government office is located in Jeonju. In the history of past one thousand years in Korean, there have been only 6 cities that have ever been designated as the capital of a dynasty, with Jeonju being known as a political and cultural center of its region.
