Juwang-san travelogue

Kim Eun-ju of Ohmynews has made a visit to Juwang-san in Cheongsong-gun, Northern Gyeongsang-do and wrote an article beautiful both in writing and photographs. Juwangsan is also the area of Jusanji pond, where the shooting of Kim Ki-duk's "Spring, Summer, Autumn..." took place. There's also the Daejeonsa temple, and Naejeon, a village without electricity. The couple keeping a lodging place in the village tells they are used to life without electricity: "if we'd have electricity, we'd just be sitting in front of the tv all day until the national anthem." There are nine households in the village, and all are claimed to be happy living that way. I guess those who weren't do have an option to leave, and most have done so, as there used to be even a school in the village.

I feel like making a trip there right away, but there are certain difficulties like the geographical distance at the moment. Perhaps next year.


Hankyoreh21 has a travel article also titillating one's sense of nostalgia and travel romanticism: taking a train to small stations to see mountains in autumn colors.

• Huibangsa station in the Central Line (Chungangsôn) before Yeongju in Northern Gyeongsang, close to Huibangsa temple in the Sobaek mountain.
• Samtan Station in the Northern Chungcheong Line (Ch'ungbuksôn), Samcheok-myeon, Chungju city.
• Tongni Station in Yeongdong Line, Gangwon-do; east of the city of Taebaek, 680 meters from sea level.
