The tomb of Yi Yejang, located in Daejang-dong, Bundang-gu, Seongnam-si, Gyeonggi-do

Yi Yejang was a civil official (munsin) in the early Joseon period, and lived from 1406 (the 6th year of the reign of King Taejong) to 1456 (the 2nd year of the reign of King Sejo). He was a son of Yi Sagwan. Yi Yejang’s common ancestral seat (bongwan) was Jeonui and his courtesy name (ja) was Jamun. He passed the literary licentiate examination (jinsasi), and then was given a post of third diarist (geomyeol). He was given a reward for helping a revolt of Prince Suyang in 1453 (the 1st year of the reign of King Danjong), and was given the title of Lord Jeonseonggun. He also received merit in bringing King Sejo to the throne in 1455. He was granted the posthumous honor of promotion to the Minister of Military Affairs (Byeongjo Panseo), and the posthumous title (siho) Pyeonggan.

The tomb of Yi Yejang is located on top of Taebongsan Mountain (172.2m) in Daejang-dong, Bundang-gu, Seongnam-si, Gyeonggi-do, facing southwest. The tomb was built as a double-mound tomb (ssangbun) and also contains the tomb of his wife, a member of the Namyang Hong Clan. The tomb mounds, 170cm in height, have a surrounding stone wall (hoseok), 80cm in height, in the lower part of the mound. In front the mounds there is a tombstone (myopyo), a stone table (sangseok), a square and a 6-sided incense table (hyangnoseok) and a stone lantern (jangmyeongdeung). To the right and left of the stone table (sangseok) stand a pair of stone figures of a civil official (muninseok). A tombstone (myopyo) is situated to the right side of the mound, facing southwest. This tombstone was erected on October 22, 1989, and consists of a support-base (bijwa), an obsidian main part of the tombstone (bisin) and a capstone (isu). The original tombstone in front the mounds has inscriptions that are worn out and hard to read.
