The Lee Hyo-seok Culture Village is a place where author Lee Hyo-seok (penname “Gasan”) was born and raised. The village is also the setting of the author’s story "When the Buckwheat Blossoms,” one of the most celebrated Korean short stories to date. During the peak of the blooming season, usually in September, visitors can enjoy the beautiful scenery of snowy-white fields of buckwheat flowers.
Buckwheat’s prominence in Pyeongchang comes about largely from its pristine nature. The culinary hero, buckwheat, memil in Korean, are used as the main ingredient in several nutritious dishes, such as memil guksu (buckwheat noodles) and memil muk (buckwheat jelly).
