Short brief of our guide in Namsan Hanok Village
Lee Seung Ueop's house - Owner of this house was the master carpenter of Gyeong Bok palace. And also he was really kind to his wife, so he changed a kitchen a bit. As you can see, there is a small door over there. Through that small door woman in Joseon Dynasty could move the small table to the room.
Kim Chun Yeong's house - Here, we can see a box with a sand, which had been used for practicing a writing. Talking about the education of Josen dynasty, there was a test called 'Gwa-geo', and through this test, people were able to become an official. However both nobles and commons were allowed to take a test, commons didn't have much time to study for the test, so mostly nobles became an official continually.
Min Yeong Hui's house - Can you guess what is this? This is the tool of learning walking. Novel in Joseon Dynasty wanted to show off themselves. So they walked like this! Try it! You can see really big kitchen. This kitchen is the biggest kitchen in this village. You can see sieve over there. And there is a interesting story about it. If ghost comes to the house and see that sieve, because ghost like to count, ghost starts to counts how many holes are in sieve. While it counts, sun rises. So ghost have to run away! And here there is a medicine drawer. It is used to Oriental Medicine!
Yun Taek Yeong's house - The most important thing in this house will be probably a shrine. Since people during the Joseon dynasty believed shrine as a sacred place, they built shrine before the house. Descendants in the house came here every morning and bowed, but not everyone was allowed to come into the shrine. Women were not allowed to enter the shrine according to the Confucianism.
Yun Deok Yeong's house - Since this house was belonged to the concubine of the owner, house's shape is rectangular, so that othere people won't see inside look of the house. There, we can see a bed and notice that it is very short, because the average height during that time was very short. And also we can see a pillow named 'Jook-bu-in' and it means 'bamboo wife'. It was usually during the summer so cool their bodies by hugging this pillow, because a lot of holes in this pillow had helped them to be cool.
- Though we’ll deal with a lot of Korean traditional culture, we’ll also deal with Korea’s history.
- Even though our tour does not have a long distance of walking, we prefer you to wear comfortable shoes, because we’ll be standing a lot while having a tour.
-In Korea, there are lots of fine dust sometimes, so watch the news carefully, and if there is alerts, please take a mask.
- Korea’s winter is very cold and there are some shadows inside the village so you’d better put on warm clothes.
