Jangnye refers to Korean funerary rites. Jangnye has been practiced since the book The Family Rituals of Zhu Xi (朱子家禮, Zhuzi jiali) was introduced from China during the Joseon Dynasty. Rulers during the era wanted to erase the Buddhist ceremonies of the previous dynasty, Goryeo, and to replace them with the ceremonies of Confucianism.
