Explanation

Located in Hampyeong, Jeollanam-do Province, the village of Mopyeong is said to have been founded by the Hampyeong Mo family, but it became the village of the Papyeong Yoon clan when Yoon Gil, who was hated by King Sejo (r. 1455-1468), returned from exile in Jeju around 1460 and settled in the area. Mopyeongheon House was built about 100 years ago as the head house by a 9th–generation descendant of the Papyeong Yoon clan. It was solidly built over a period of three years using pine wood that had been soaked in seawater for seven years and dried for fifteen years to prevent any changes in the wood. Among the old tiled-roof houses of the village, Mopyeongheon House is notable for its simple yet elegant beauty. Its curved tiled-roof, straight doors, rounded pillars and wooden rafters form a harmonious beauty with the surrounding bamboo grove and green tea fields. The house was opened as a tourist accommodation in 2009 after renovation work to modernize the kitchen and bathroom. Glass windows were built into the toenmaru (the narrow wooden porch running along the outside of the building) to shut out draughts from outside and to allow guests to see the bamboo grove. There is a BBQ facility in the back yard, and a small vegetable garden with chili peppers and lettuce for guests. All of the rooms have clean bedding and are equipped with a TV, computer, mirror, tea set (green tea leaves are provided by the owner), etc. Guests will enjoy relaxing amid the serene natural environment which includes Ansaem Spring, a forest with trees over 300 years old, a stream, and nearby attractions including eight pavilions and various historic houses. In addition, the village runs diverse experience programs including strawberry picking, making green tea rice cakes, and woodcrafts among others.
