Abstract During the late Joseon dynasty, the Oegyujanggak-Uigwe contained records of government construction projects, particularly involving the terms of traditional lime, the lime manufacturing process, material conditions, quality, construction methods and its use. Upon analysis of the Uigwe, it revealed that lime was used by mixing materials such as unusable Hanji, sticky rice, perilla oil, fine sand, and red clay. There were differences in the quality of lime used and the materials to be mixed depending on its use and time. The mixing ratio between lime and additives changed by time and construction factors and was regularized at 19 C. In modern times, lime terms have been standardized according to industrial characteristics, production areas, supply methods, and materials; construction methods have drastically changed from the past. During modernization, traditional methods and records were lost, which led to new technologies being introduced. Therefore, to restore traditional lime construction methods, it is necessary to examine the process of changes made in lime-related content by period and through continuous review of ancient literature to improve the differences between the past and modern times.
