    Introduction
    Seongyojang House is the former upper class residence of Lee Nae-beon (1703-1781) and his family in Gangneung, Gangwon-do. It was designated as National Folklore Cultural Heritage No. 5 in 1967. The one-syllable word "Seon" in Seongyojang means boat. Gyeongpo Lake was right in front of Seongyojang House at the time it was built, thus making is accessible by boat.

    Seongyojang House has all the features of a typical upper class residence during the Joseon period. The complex even has a large pond with a pavilion named Hwallaejeong Pavilion. While the building still blends beautifully with the surrounding nature, Seongyojang House has been well-preserved and is considered a valuable resource in the historical research of living conditions of upper class households during the Joseon dynasty.
