About Hakgojae
50, Samcheong-ro, Jongno-gu, Seoul, Korea

Hakgojae first opened its door in Seoul, a financial hub of Asia, in 1988. Since then, Hakgojae has been leading a rapidly growing Korean art market, as well as charting directions on how Korean art ought to be harmonized and developed within the contemporary global culture. The process of learning the history of Korea is an excruciating self-reflection, a country where sentiments from colonialism and division of the country are still very much alive. Nonetheless, to be able to confidently reach out to readily participate in the global cultural flow despite its past struggles is the true philosophy behind the saying, “to review the old to learn the new.” This is the very ideology and orientation that makes Hakgojae unique, which brings together the old and the new, and connects the region to the world.

Through this, a different lifestyle is suggested, and living is given a new value.
