In 1907, three of the four gates were demolished at the same time by the abolition of the Joseon Dynasty, and now only part of the Pungnammun remains, but there were certainly four gates in Jeonju.

The east gate is Wandongmun (ڦ), the south gate is Pungnammun (ڦ), the west gate is Paseomun (ڦ), and the north gate is Gongbukmun (ڦ). Currently, the East Gate is halfway between Bookstore Street and Dongbu Market (Dongmun Intersection), where a fortress wall was built with Gyeonggijeon inward, forming the south gate from the existing Pungnammun.

Jeonjuseong is the form of a fortress that connects again along the Nammun Market Road to raise a west gate in front of the current Daga-dong police box, and a fortress along the road in front of the cinema theater, raises a north gate next to the current Ogeori (north gate platform) and connects to the east gate.
