SEOUL, May 11 (Yonhap) -- The Gongpyeong City Relics Exhibition Hall, at the Seoul Museum of History, announced on the 11th that it will hold an exhibition highlighting Seong Deok-im, known as the concubine of King Jeongjo, Royal Noble Consort Uibin Seong until 10th July.

Seong Deok-im is also well known as the female lead in the popular drama "The Red Sleeve," which aired on MBC at the end of last year.

In this exhibition, stories from dramas and original novels will be introduced through historical materials and relics. In particular, a total of 10 Korean manuscripts of the classic novel "Kwak Jangyangmunrok," which Deok-im was seen copying in the drama, will be exhibited for the first time.

For the transcription of "Kwak Jangyangmunrok," it is presumed that Seok Deok-im and Jeongjo's two younger sisters, Princess Cheongyeon and Princess Cheongseon participated.

Manuscripts of "Kwak Jangyangmunrok" were previously separated. Volume 1 and 2 were donated by Professor Hong Tae-han of Jeonbuk National University while the rest of the volumes were in the possession of the Seoul Museum of History as it was donated by its original owner, Professor Hong Doo-seon. This time, all the volumes will be presented at once.

Additionally, the poem, "Sikyung (The Book of Odes)" that Yi San (Jeongjo when he was the crown prince) read to Deok-im, in the drama, "The Red Sleeves" will be exhibited as well.

The exhibition will be free. The Visiting hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays, as well as weekends. It will be closed every Mondays except public holidays.

More information can be found at the website of the Seoul Museum of History.
