Beautiful grounds, well maintained buildings and a story to tell. Well worth visiting. The history of these buildings relates to the people who made a difference in Korea and their related impact on the nations history is remembered on the 50 000w and 5 000w notes.

CYC ( 2014.01.17 ) Ojuk means black bamboo. There was a birthplace of Scholar Yul-gok and His Mother Shin Sa-im-dang. Yulgok was described in 5,000 won bill, and Shin Saimdang in 50,000 won bill. This place was some Korean-style house and some museum. About 1 hour or more, you can enjoy Korean history and atmosphere.

If you don't have time to look up these two well-known figures of the Joseon dynasty, take out your money!... More
