Old Cultural Firsts Usher Korea into Modern Era.

The Cultural Properties Administration in Seoul announced that the two cars, which were the first to be driven on Korean roads, would soon be registered as cultural heritage items.

There were two vehicles – one was a Cadillac limousine that was built in 1918 by U.S-based General Motors Corp., which belonged to Korea’s final Emperor Sunjong (1874-1926) and a separate car made in 1914 by British-based Daimler, which was used by his wife Empress Sunjeonghyo (1894-1966).
