The village name “Woomyeong" means "The village where the oxen moo" in Korean. According to Korean feng shui, the village looks like an ox regurgitating in a comfortable crouching position. For farmers in the olden days, an ox was the symbol of prosperity and peace. This village has been regarded as one of the most fertile and prosperous areas in Korea. It was also the hometown of a famous scholar named Jeong, whose house now serves as a pension. The village has another name, “Hyo-ri,” which means "a village of devoted sons" in Korean, because the village was famous for having many devoted sons throughout generations. The pension is commonly called "Hyo-ri House" among the locals because the big house with a large field is regarded as the center of the village. The owner of the house transformed it into a pension in 2013, because he thought it would be nice to provide a comfortable place for visitors where they can just lie down on the wooden floor and look up the sky. There haven’t been many guests so far, but the owner says that his house can serve as a place where the guests can benefit from the good energy surrounding the village and learn history and culture during their stay. Guests are also welcome to pick vegetables from the field during their stay in the traditional Korean house and learn how the Korean scholars lived and studied in a farming family in the past.

'Andong City in Gyeongsangbuk-do Province is a town of culture and folk traditions where one can trace the long history of eminent families. It is also a symbol of time-honored tradition to the extent that the name Andong reminds people of traditional Korean hanok houses. Isangru, an ancient hanok house with a history of 2,590 years, located in the foothills of Mt. Cheondeungsan, served as a venue for the memorial rite for Kim Seon-pyeong, the progenitor of the Andong Kim clan and a meritorious government official during the reign of King Taejo of the Goryeo Dynasty. Isangru, meaning ‘a tall majestic building built on frosty ground’, is a two-story wooden building with a tiled roof characterized by elegant curves that form a half-hipped shape when viewed from the side. The house consists of two accommodations, Taejangtaesa and Isangru, arranged in a ‘ㅁ’ shape. The large door located in the middle of the ground floor offers an open view of the beautiful natural environment including a pine grove, a pond, and wild flowers. Built in 1750, this hanok house shows its age in its wooden pillars, stone walls, and interiors decorated with wooden engraving on the handrail. Guests can stay in a room heated with wood in winter, or in a tent for a different experience in summer. The house has been well maintained with various repair works, and underwent extensive renovations, including the wallpaper and floors, in 2013. Although it is close to a road, the house is surrounded by old trees, creating the impression that it is situated in the middle of a dense forest. A path runs between ancient pine trees on the road leading to the house. There is a pond with water lilies and white lotus flowers in front of the house, while various species of wild flowers including big blue lily turf, plantain lily, montane aster, and asters come into full bloom around the house in their respective seasons. Fully maintained by the Andong Kim clan, Isangru is a large structure that can accommodate many people and is used to hold clan assemblies. This tall building is also used as a venue for concerts, seminars and traditional hands-on experience programs for students, including tea ceremony, masked dance, natural dyeing, hanji (Korean paper) crafts, and filial duty education programs. The house also offers guests a traditional nobleman’s dining table including various wild vegetable dishes for breakfast.
