The Dueok Happy Dream Village Farming Association Corporation runs a hanok-style guesthouse situated in Dueok Happy Dream Village, which is surrounded by high, clean mountains. Also known as Bongseogol, the village is a pleasant farming community located deep in the lush green mountains of Wanju-gun, Jeollabuk-do, and is also well known as one of the eight best propitious sites in Korea – Jongnamsan Mountain on its right and Seobangsan Mountain on its left are said to resemble a phoenix('Bonghwang' in Korean) embracing the village (hence the name of the village is ‘Bongseo’).

Le temple Songgwangsa se trouve à Soyang-myeon, Wanju-gun dans la province du Jeollabuk-do. Le temple est vieux de plus de mille ans. Seul le terrain du temple avait été conservé jusqu’à la 7ème année du règne du roi Gyeongmun de Silla (867), quand le moine Bojo Cheijing l’a reconstruit. Au fil du temps, le temple fut quasiment détruit, mais le grand moine Jinul pria pour sa reconstruction. Les halls et bâtiments restants ont été construits par les disciples du moine Jinul dans les années 1600. Le temple est également réputé du fait que le roi Injo a contribué à sa reconstruction dans l’espoir que ses deux fils, qui avaient été pris en otage par la dynastie Qing durant la guerre Byeongjahoran (invasion de la Corée par la Chine en 1636) reviennent sains et saufs, et que Bouddha soulage les tourments de la guerre.
Songgwangsa est l’un des quatre principaux temples de Corée, et abrite les statues de Jijangbosal et Siwangsang conservées dans le hall Jijangjeon (le plus grand hall), la statue Seokgayeorae et les 500 statues Nahansang dans le hall Nahanjeon et le hall Daeungjeon, chacune d’entre elles attirant des foules d’adorateurs. Le temple se trouve sur un terrain plat, et il est ainsi facilement accessible aux personnes âgées. Au printemps, les tunnels de cerisiers en fleurs sont tout simplement magnifiques. Le temple abrite également quatre trésors culturels : le hall Daeungjeon, les statues Samsebulsang, le clocher et la statue Sacheonwangsang, ainsi que huit biens culturels tangibles.

Omokdae can be seen from the garden of Buyongheon. Across the Jeonjucheon Stream is the National Intangible Heritage Center.
The beginning of Buyongheon is deeply related with Jeonju Hyanggyo. In around 1935, the local bureaucrats lived around the Hyanggyo after building 12 houses one after another. Most of them came from rich families. These collective houses were called Buyong Houses, which meant rich houses. The name Buyongheon originated from Buyong Houses. The rooms of Buyongheon are composed of Toenmaru Bang, Daecheong Maru Bang, Large Daecheong Maru Bang and Big Sarangchae. The interior of the rooms looks neat with the beauty of blank space as they excluded unnecessary decorations. Carefully prepared breakfast is served upon request made in advance.

Gwisinsan, situé dans le village Cheongdo à Gimje, est actuellement un temple de l’ordre Jogye mais fut initiallement crée en appartenance à l’ordre Hwaeom. Il est réputé de par son créateur le grand moine Uisang Daesa et fut construit lors de la 16ème année du règne du roi King Munmu (676). Cependant, certains soutiennent que ce temple fut fondé de manière privée pour la famille royale sous le règne du roi Beop du royaume Baekje.
La statut Namgeunseok d’un animal de pierre est présentée pour soutenir cet argument.
Historiquement, le temple a eu plusieurs noms dont Guksinsa, Gwisinsa, Gusunsa et Gwisinsa (avec un sens différent), mais on sait peu de choses sur le temple lorsqu’il avait des noms différents. Actuellement, le temple contient une pagode en pierre de 3 étages et quelques sculptures incluant seoksu (statut animale en pierre) et Buto. Egalement, on retrouve le hall Daejeokgwangjeon à l’intérieur du temple, désigné comme le trésor n°826 de Corée, le hall Myeongbujeon et une chambre Gongyangjib (chambre d’offrandes bouddhistes).

Omokdae, situé en haut d'une colline, au nord de Hanbyeokdang et Jeonju Hyanggyo, est le lieu où Yi Seong-gye (qui devint plus tard le Roi Taejo) s'arreta pour célébrer sa victoire lors d'une bataille contre l'armée japonaise au Mont Hwangsan à Unbong vers la fin de la période Goryeo. C'est aussi là où Mokjo, l'un des ancêtres de Yi Seong-gye, vécut. Plus tard, le Roi Gojong y établit une statue monumentale, “Taejogohwang Jejupilyujibi” avec une phrase écrite de sa propre main. De l'autre côté de Yukgyo, à partir d'Omokdae, se trouve Yimokdae, au pied du Mont Seungamsan où Chimyeongjasan, sité sacré pour les catholiques demeure. A 80 m de Yimokdae se trouvent un mémorial et une maison. “Mokjodaewang Gugeoyuji”, la phrase gravée sur le monument en pierre, fut écrite par le Roi Gojong en personne. Mokjo est le cinquième ancêtre du Roi Taejo, qui fonda la Dynastie Joseon. Imokdae est connue pour être le lieu où Mokjo vécut, jouant à des jeux de formation de bataille avec ses amis étant enfant. Cette anecdote apparait également dans le Yongbieocheonga (ballade du 15e siècle narrant la longévité nationale et la réussite culturelle). Mokjo se rendit à Hamgyeong-do à partir d'Imokdae (à Jeonju) en raison de la querelle qu'il eut avec le Jeonju Busan (officiel de l'etat gouvernant la région de Jeonju). Yi Seong-gye pensa que le départ de Mokjo était quelque chose ayant été guidé par les dieux afin qu'il (Yi Seong-gye) puisse fonder Joseon et devenir le premier roi de la dynastie.

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.

Inside the rooms are rafters, beams, wooden pillars walled with Hanji wallpapers, and ribs of lattice doors. There is a clean bathroom in each room.
The yard is the place the owner couple cherishes the most. Guests can enjoy the yard in any room just by opening the door. It is a combination of jar stands, a small pine tree, and small potted plants. Different flowers bloom from spring through autumn. It is such a pleasure to sit on the porch and appreciate the scene. In autumn, the persimmon tree bears fruits and dried persimmons hang from the eaves.
