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. SInce 1999, Hyoseok Cultural Festival is held every September to commemorate the writer. Visitors to the festival can enjoy various food and events as well as a replica of the stage written in the book. For those that are searching for a more tranquil visit, avoid the months of September, when the buckwheat flowers are in full bloom. Don't forget to try all the different memil, buckwheat, dishes offered throughout the area all year round.
