During the period between the 1880s and the 1900s when the Great Power’s interest in Korea was growing, foreign visitors also increased in Korea, including missionaries, diplomats, travelers, correspondents, explorers, and entrepreneurs. It thus led to the construction of several Western-style hotels in Korea at the early twentieth century, including Seoul Hotel, Hotel du Palais, Imperial Hotel, Astor Hotel, and Sontaq Hotel. It allowed foreign people to stay in a comfortable western space like their home. These hotels established a modern space in the Korean landscape of the time. They also made several routes that Western facilities were shipped and imported into the ports of Korea in order to create home away from home for foreign visitors. This paper examines the ways in which such products as building materials, furniture, food materials, ingredients, and interior accessories were supplied in order to create a temporary Western domesticity. It focuses on the ways of the process of distribution and consumption of the Western products in Korea. Given that temporary homes for visitors in Korea appeared as safe haven from local Koreans, they were inaccessible to local people who were segregated from such imperial domesticity. These temporary homes were expected to keep Western middle-class practices and local Koreans were employed as servants or cooks, serving domestic care workers. This paper assumes that the temporary domesticity was at odds with some core Korean ideas about households and domesticity.
