[K스포츠장기= 하여명 프로五단] Initial Starting Position (ISP)


Before starting the game, Janggi pieces can be set out as shown in the diagram above.


  • King is placed at the center of the palace.
  • Two Guards are placed diagonally behind the King.
  • Five soldiers are placed on five intersection points marked by ‘x’ in the fourth row.
  • Cannons are placed on two intersection points marked by ‘x’ in the third row.
  • Chariots are placed at the very end corner of the Board.

For Horses and Elephants, each horse and elephant will be placed between the Chariot and the Guard. These two pieces can be transposed in any combination at the player’s discretion.


Thus, there are four Initial Starting Positions (ISPs), which are demonstrated in the below table.


Note that the naming convention of the ISPs are based on the position of the elephants. In the above set up diagram, Blue player chose Elephant-Horse : Elephant-Horse (EHEH, Left-Aligned Elephants) as his ISP while Red chose Horse-Elephant : Elephant-Horse (HEEH, Inner-Aligned Elephants).
