Gyeongguk daejeon is a complete code of law[1] that comprises every law, acts, customs, ordinances released since the late Goryeo Dynasty to the early Joseon Dynasty. It had been a basis for over 500 years of Joseon Dynasty politics. Gyeongguk daejeon was promulgated in 1485, the 16th year of King Seongjong’s reign after the final edition was codified, based on the first complete code of laws, "Gyeongje yukjeon" (經濟六典, Six Codes of Governance[2]) and its implemented edition, "Sokyukjeon" (續六典, Amended Six Codes of Governance[3]) which were issued in the reign of the state founder, King Taejo.[4][5]
