Yi Sang, who passed away at the tender age of 27 in 1937, lived at this location with his uncle, who adopted him for most of his life. Though Yi Sang was a trained architect who worked for the Japanese government during colonization, he later became a writer and poet who expressed very critical views about Japan. Although the original house was destroyed, a hanok built there in its stead stands in honor of him. Highlights from visiting the home include a beautiful iron cast door at the back of the house and a small staircase that leads to a room called the Room of Yi Sang. Once there, you can help yourself to some instant coffee or browse through a collection of his works.
