Naganeupseong Traditional Folk Village – Suncheon

Posted in Photo diary by 노강호 on March 26, 2012

I visited the Naganeupseong Traditional Folk Village, Suncheon, Jeollanam-do,  in January. Here are a few of my photographs. Jeollanam-do is one of the southernmost provinces (Provinces of South Korea).

The village is enclosed within a ‘castle,’ though it probably closer to say a ‘fort’ as there really only remains a fortified wall.  The village has around a hundred residents and numerous small guest houses.The village had a fantastic collection of totem poles (장승) which were the subject of an earlier post (Fascinating Physogs).

Bathhouse Ballads chronicles many aspects of my life in South Korea. Kimchi Gone Fusion focuses on ‘the way of the pickled cabbage’ while Mister Makgeolli is dedicated to Korean rice wine.
