Located in Jeonju Hanok Village, Yangsajae was the place where the poet Lee Byeong-gi (pen-name: Garam, sijo poet) composed his sijo (a Korean traditional poetic form) works. Now used as a cultural space, the house attracts many people looking for relaxation and cultural experiences. Yangsajae, meaning “a house (jae) that cultivates (yang) classical scholars (sa)”, was an annex of the Jeonjuhyanggyo Confucian School where classical scholars used to study in preparation for the national civil service examinations. As an educational and creative place, Lee Byeong-gi composed sijo poems there for six years from 1951. It later served as the Jeonbuk Public Elementary School with the introduction of new learning to the Jeollabuk-do area in 1987. Since 2002, however, it has served as a hanok stay dedicated to promoting local history and traditions to the public. It is said that the building was constructed on a 400-year-old site about 150 years ago. In 1980, repair work was conducted to save the basic structure of the house. The house is a typical ‘ㄱ’-shaped hanok structure with a half-hipped roof. In particular, the three dormitory rooms originally used by Confucian students and classical scholars can be converted into one single room for seminars, tea ceremonies, or other group meetings simply by opening the bunhapmun (sliding doors). The guesthouse is a ‘ㅡ’-shaped hanok built in 1980. Each room has a clean and cozy interior with simple decoration and furniture. The rooms include the Gudeul (floor heated with firewood) Room, where the tea ceremony program using green tea leaves picked from the wild green tea field behind the house is held, and the Ondol (Korean floor heating system) Room. As the poet Lee, who loved orchids, poems and alcohol, lived at Yangsajae, there are still traces of his former presence inside the house. Notably, Lee used the ‘Garamdasil’ room as his study room, so it displays some of his photos. There is a postbox situated in a corner of the yard which the guests can use, and the owner will deliver the mail himself. Yangsajae is not only a hanok accommodation but also a multi-experience space where guests can discover traces of the old educational institute and the poet Lee’s life and works.
