Chungju City, which is from the “Chung” in Chungcheongbuk-do, is a city in northern Chungcheong province, South Korea. It borders Jecheon City to the east, Eumseong County to the west, Goesan County and Mungyeong City to the south, Wonju City in Gangwon province, and Yeoju City in Gyeonggi province to the north. Due to the mountains lined up along the Sobaek Mountains to the southeast, the Namhan River (南漢江) and Dalcheon Stream (達川) which passes through Chungju city, Chungju city is located in an inland basin rich in water resources, making it a historical hub since ancient times.
Gyeongju is a city in southeastern Gyeongsangbuk-do Province, Korea. It is one of the oldest cities in Korea and was the capital of the Silla dynasty, which led the period of the Three Kingdoms (a period of Korean history established by the three countries of Goryeo, Baekje, and Silla) on the Korean Peninsula for about 1,000 years. Therefore, it is called a roofless museum and is well known as a tourist spot where people can encounter cultural heritage sites around every corner.

It was once destroyed by fire during the Japanese Invasion of Korea in 1592 and reconstructed in 1867 by the Prince Regent at that time. After reconstruction, it survived through Japanese occupation and the Korean War, and it is now open to the public after many restorations.
