  1. 한의학 On July 5, 2005 the Ministry of Strategy and Finance designated an area of land in Dongdaemun-gu as the "Seoul Medicine Market/Oriental Medicine Industry District." The Dongdaemun District Office hopes to initiate a variety of sub-projects to develop the region as a global hub of oriental medicine in both a wholesale and retail capacity. Through the development of the area’s oriental medicine and related industries, government officials are hoping to revive the local economy while simultaneously boosting public health.
  2. 한의학 Seoul Yangnyeong-si is Korea's largest herbal medicine distribution center that accounts for more than 70% of the national herbal medicine trade volume and boasts its history and tradition. As such, our museum in Seoul Yangnyeong-si is a herbal complex cultural space established to preserve, inherit and develop the history and culture of traditional Korean medicines through exhibiting historical and modern artifacts related to herb medicine and more than 350 kinds of medicinal materials.
  3. 한의학 Hanbang, like other Oriental traditional medicine, has been influenced by Chinese traditions. One of the earliest references to Korean herbs as medicine would be the founding myth regarding a bear and tiger that ate wormwood and garlic. These two ingredients are still considered effective cures in hanbang nowadays and, since they do not appear in Chinese herbology, it shows that despite the influences, Korean medicine has developed on its own to some extent. 
  4. 한의학 It is an experience space related to various herb medicine such as heated massage bed, herb medicine pack, and stress diagnosis.
  5. 한의학 This is a footbath experience field that you can enjoy in the water with herbl medicine under the traditional pavilion on the second floor.
