After passing the subject documentation and taxation laws, King Taejong issued a decree that decisions passed by the Euijeong Department could only come into effect with the approval of the king.

He abolished Hongmungwan and the Office of Censors, whose function was to criticize inappropriate actions and policies of the king. He banned the use of Hangul after commoners criticized him with posters written in that alphabet.
After twelve years, he was deposed in a coup that placed his half-brother Jungjong on the throne in Jungjong was a fundamentally weak king because of the circumstances that placed him on the throne, but his reign also saw significant reforms led by his minister Jo Gwang-jothe charismatic leader of Sarim scholars.
He established a local self-government system called Hyang'yak to strengthen local autonomy and communal spirit; sought to reduce the gap between rich and poor by distributing land to farmers more equally and by limiting the amount of land and the number of slaves that one could own; promulgated Confucian writings widely with vernacular translations; and reduced the number of bureaucrats.

Joseon witnessed the emergence of Silhak Practical Learning. The early group of Silhak scholars advocated comprehensive reform of civil service examination, taxation, natural sciences and the improvement in agromanagerial and agricultural techniques.
It aimed to rebuild Joseon society after it had been devastated by the two invasions. Under the leadership of Kim Yukthe chief minister of King Hyeonjongthe implementation of reforms proved highly advantageous both to state revenues and to the lot of the peasants. As a response, the next kings, Yeongjo and Jeongjogenerally pursued the Tangpyeongchaek - a policy of maintaining balance and equality between the factions. King Jeongjo also spearheaded bold social initiatives, opening government positions to those who would previously have been barred because of their social status.
King Jeongjo had the support of the many Silhak scholars, who supported his regal power. King Jeongjo's reign also saw the further growth and development of Joseon's popular culture.

Government by in-law families[ edit ] After the death of King Jeongjo, the Joseon faced difficult external and internal problems. Internally, the foundation of national law and order weakened as a result of "Sedo" politics in-law government by royal in-law family.
Young King Sunjo succeeded King Jeongjo in With Jeongjo's death the Intransigent Patriarch faction seized power with the regency of Queen Dowager Jeongsunwhose family had strong ties to the Intransigents, and initiated a persecution of Catholics. But after the retirement and death of the Queen Dowager, the Intransigents were gradually ousted and the Expedient faction, including the Andong Kim family of Kim Jo-sunthe father of the queen, gained power.
Gradually the Andong Kims came to dominate the court. The formidable in-law lineage monopolized the vital positions in government, holding sway over the political scene, and intervening in the succession of the throne.
These kings had no monarchic authority and could not rule over the government. The yangban of other families, overwhelmed by the power exercised by the royal in-laws, could not speak out. As the power was concentrated in the hands of the royal in-law lineage, there was disorder in the governing process and corruption became rampant. Large sums were offered in bribes to the powerful lineages to obtain positions with nominally high rank.
Even the low-ranking posts were bought and sold. This period, which spanned 60 years, saw the manifestation of both severe poverty among the Korean population and ceaseless rebellions in various parts of the country. Externally, Joseon became increasingly isolationist. Its rulers sought to limit contact with foreign countries. His father, Regent Heungseon Daewongunruled for him until Gojong reached adulthood.

During his reign, the power and authority of the in-law families such as the Andong Kims sharply declined. In order to get rid of the Andong Kim and Pungyang Cho families, he promoted persons without making references to political party or family affiliations, and in order to reduce the burdens of the people and solidify the basis of the nation's economy, he reformed the tax system.
InKing Gojong announced his assumption of royal rule. With the subsequent retirement of Heungseon Daewongun, the future Queen Min later called Empress Myeongseong became a power in the court, placing her family in high court positions.
