Korea Delegation to China in 1863

The first photographs of Koreans are released to the public Thursday. The six pictures of the Korean delegation to China were taken at the Russian legation in Beijing in January 1863. Three members of the delegation appear in one of the pictures. A British missionary at the time collected the photos and took them to Britain. Recently, photography professor Park Ju-seok at Myongji University made them public after they came into his possession.
