Synopsis

Yangdong village in Gyeongju, Korea, overflows with such power that two clans in the Joseon era built many residences here. The tile-roofed hanok of the ruling class is designed along Confucian teachings.

Its configuration speaks of order according to the sexes and seniority, while the unembellished pillars embody concordance with Nature. With its architectural austerity that helps to instill virtue, this is a home that posterity takes pride in.

Its residents hope to align themselves with it spiritually, and practice stoic, upright living.
