Introduction to Oeam Folk Village
Located at the foot of Mt. Sulhwa in Songak-myeon, Asan, the Ye-an Lee family has been mainstream since about 500 years ago. Unlike traditional villages where only old traces remain, this village is very interesting because you can meet and communicate with the villagers who live here in personally.

It is where you can feel the past vividly with the preservation of a long-standing Korean traditional totem pole at the entrance of the village, a traditional millstone worked by horse or ox, a spinning wheel, and a straw-thatched roof that gives you a glimpse of the life of the old Joseon Dynasty. Especially this village has an impressive low stone wall with moss and has been the background of many well known Korean movies.
