new hillside neighborhood museum in Incheon

Visited Flying Net after a long time. There doesn't seem to be so much happening at the moment, not many new texts have been put up in the last few months, but from the latest piece in the long series of "Searching for the Identity of Incheon" I learn that a new museum called Sudoguk-san Taltongne Pangmulgwan, which means "Sudoguk mountain hillside (squatter) neighborhood museum" but which has the official English name of "Sudoguksan Museum of Housing and Living". (The official homepage of the museum doesn't seem to have more than one page at the moment.)

The writer gives a positive appraisal of the museum, and writes the following:
One pays attention to the stories of several actual persons who have lived in the Sudoguk mountain neighborhood. The lives and livelihoods of the neighborhood residents like the paper collector Maeng T'ae-sông, keeper of the coal briquette shop Yu Wan-sôn, cotton ware (sont'ûl) shop keepre Pak Kil-chu, and Pak Chông-yang of Taeji Barbershop have been recreated. [translation AL]
