Furthermore, the House of Namho, which is situated behind the House of Sogang, was built for the first son of Kim Roe-sik, one of the richest men in the region, who borrowed money using his entire property as security and donated it to a war chest. He won an official commendation for his role in helping secure national independence in 1977.
The entire village pf Baraemi is composed of traditional square-shaped houses with tiled roofs set amid a clean and peaceful atmosphere, for which it was designated as a Traditional Cultural Village way back in 1922. The name of the village, Baraemi, implies that it was originally situated by the sea, and many shell remains have been found in paddy fields and puddles there over the last 60 years.

Thanks to the owner-family’s dedicated maintenance and care, the house has been preserved in good condition. As the typical residence of a nobleman of the late Joseon period, the house is decorated with simple interior objects including an old electric fan and a cabinet inlaid with mother-of-pearl.
The house has seven guestrooms in total: The sarangchae consists of the Keunsarang and Jakeunsarang, each with a capacity of 4 to 5 people, and the Araetbang with a capacity of 2 to 3 people. In summer, guests can rent the Jakeunsarang and Sarangdaecheong together, or the Araetbang and Marutbang together, in order to have more space.

In summer it is possible to rent the entire House of Sogang, which can accommodate anywhere from 22 to 34 people (if the Sarangmaru and Marutbang are also rented).
Guests of the Keunsarang and Jakeunsarang can use a communal refrigerator, and the entire building has Wi-Fi access. Clean bedding is also provided.
