The tablet for Jibokjae (집옥재) in Gyeongbokgung (경복궁) Palace, Seoul (서울), South Korea (대한민국).

From Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gyeongbokgung#Jibokjae -
Jibokjae (Hangul: 집옥재; Hanja: 集玉齋), located next to Geoncheonggung Residence, is a two-story private library used by King Gojong. In 1876, a major fire occurred in Gyeongbokgung Palace, and King Gojong, for a brief period, moved and resided in Changdeokgung Palace instead. He eventually moved back to Gyeongbokgung in 1888, and he had the already-existing Jibokjae building dissembled and moved from Changdeokgung to the present location in 1891. Its name, Jibokjae, translates loosely in English as "Hall of Collecting Jade."
