This is a REAL Korean village

During my cycling trip around Korea I suddenly passed a village, a small village on an island in the south, the village has all the elements of a Korean village. Elements you won't notice in the big cities like Seoul and Busan. Elements that reflect decades of Korean history. The village is a gem, found at the right time, when loneliness took over and when I couldn't find a story to tell. Now the village has become the story and I can peacefully continue my journey.
