The roof style of the Blue House is ‘Paljak (八作)’ for both the main building and the annex. If you look closely at the appearance of blue tile on the roof, you can see that in addition to general tile, such as sukiwa, amki, sumaaksae, and black tile, decorative tiles found in palaces such as japsang, chidu, dragon head, and tosu were used.
During the Goryeo Dynasty, there was a separate palace in Nanjing.
It was the patronage of Gyeongbokgung Palace in Joseon .
During the Japanese colonial period , the 6th Governor-General of Joseon, Jiro Minami , moved his official residence to the present location.
From 1945 to 1948, it was used as the official residence of U.S. Army Lieutenant General John Haji.
From July 24, 1948 to April 26, 1960, it was used as the official residence of President Syngman Rhee and was called Gyeongmudae .
During the Korean War , the presidential office was destroyed due to a fire inside the Central Office.
When President Yun Bo- seon took office in 1961, the name Gyeongmudae was changed to Cheong Wa Dae , thinking that the name Gyeongmudae symbolized the Rhee Syngman regime and gave people bad feelings due to the image of corruption .
On September 4, 1991, Hyundai Asan built this new building.
In October 1993, President Kim Young- sam demolished the old main building where the former governor-general of Joseon lived during the Japanese colonial period.
In 2003, the National Crisis Management Center situation room (underground bunker) was built.
