Inner Quarters

Go around the Master’s Quarters to the back, and you will see the Inner Quarters with inner courtyard.

The Inner Quarters were residential quarters for women, and such quarters typically had a kitchen. Built in a linear layout, the Inner Quarters of Hamyang Hanok have a main floored hall in between the main living room and smaller room and an extended verandah. Stepping up and entering the floored hall, you see a spacious room on your right and a smaller room on your left.

Main Floored Hall
Main Floored Hall
The main floored hall is the most open and freest space of all of a traditional house. In the Main Floored Hall of Hamyang Hanok, you can enjoy the simple beauty of the inner courtyard and refreshing air wafting in from the backyard where bamboo grows. This floored hall was large enough for the whole family to use as a living room, and a full pair glass window allowed visitors to enjoy the bamboo forest at the back, even during the coldest days of winter.

When you open the window of the Main Living Room in the morning, crisp air and refreshing scenery of a broad and flat rock and plum trees will greet you. If you look up a little higher, you can see the gentle silhouette of the tiled roof of the Master’s Quarters against blue sky.
The smaller room across the main living room has a convenient built-in closet for visitors to keep clothes and luggage.
Come enjoy the essence of living in a traditional house in these warm ondol (under-floor heating) rooms that have a natural feel.

There was originally a kitchen in this place. It was remodeled as the wood-floored room you see today. Commanding a sweeping view, you can see Mt. Gwaegwansan beyond the Master’s Quarters. Here, you can enjoy the elegance of a Korean house that embraces nature.
