Suwon Hwaseong Fortress, Part VIII: Sinpungnu Pavilion (More Bleach, More Fun!)

Ken-chan, over here! We have Joseonese Army Battalion to test our strength!

Sinpungnu Pavilion (Hanja: 新豊樓) is the main gate of Hwaseong Haenggung. It was called as Jinnamnu (Hangul/Hanja: 진남루/鎭南樓) originally when it was built in 1790. In 1795, King Jeongjo the Great changed its name to Sinpungnu and had Cho Yoon-hyung (Hangul: 조윤형) rewrite the name tablet. The origin of Sinpung goes back to an old story that King Gaozu of the Han Dynasty once said, "The area of Pung is another home to me." Hwaseong was like another hometown to King Jeongjo the Great. In 1795, he distributed rice and porridge to the poor in front of Sinpungnu.
