Introduction
Discover the life and literature of famous Korean writer Gasan Lee Hyo-Seok at the Lee Hyo-Seok Memorial Hall. The literary house consists of the Literature Exhibition (chronology of Lee Hyo-Seok’s works), Literary Class, Art Research, Creative Idea Room, and a Theater for literary plays. There is also a mock-up of the old Bongpyeong Marketplace and videos for children, as well as a number of different activities. The facility houses valuable documents such as the author’s first printed newspaper, magazine, and book publications. In addition to its deep literary significance, the house is known for its exquisite exterior, Literary Garden, and buckwheat flower trail.

Lee Hyo-Seok (Pen name: Gasan)

Born in Bongpyeong-myeon, Pyeongchang-gun, Gangwon-do, Lee Hyo-seok began his life as a writer with the publication of “City and Ghost” in 1928. Subsequently publishing such works as “Noryeonggeunhae,” “Landing,” “March.” and “Meet by Chance,” Yi actively established himself as an author sympathetic to the proletariats during the Japanese Colonial Period. Later on, he was an active member of an authors’ modernism association and published more books, this time focusing on his empathy with Mother Nature. In the mid-1930s Lee published "When the Buckwheat Blossoms," one of the most celebrated Korean short stories to date.
