Shin, Yun-Bok "Holding a drinking bout" (주사거배 酒肆擧盃 [Ju-Sa-Geo-Bae])

Legendary Korean painter during the Kingdom of Great Joseon (July 1392-August 1910) (also Choson, Chosun).

Shin Yun-bok, better known by his pen name Hyewon, (born 1758) was a Korean painter of the Joseon Dynasty. Like his contemporaries Danwon and Geungjae, he is known for his realistic depictions of daily life in period, and Hyewon's father and grandfather had both been court painters. Together with Danwon and the later painter Owon, Hyewon is remembered today as one of the "Three Wons" of Joseon-period painting. In the novel Painter of the Wind by Lee Jeong-myeong, Hyewon is portrayed as a woman disguised as a man. In 2008, the novel was adapted into a drama series of the same, as well as the film Portrait of a Beauty.
