Chusa museum

Chusa We found this museum last weekend, when we got off the bus halfway between home and Museulpo. It’s a reconstruction of the home of Kim Jeong-hui, otherwise known as Chusa. He was a 19th century scholar and calligrapher, exiled to Jeju for his political views. According to the leaflet, he lived here ‘for about 9 years after being sent into exile on the faraway island of Jeju-do’; it seems that Jeju is remote even by Korean standards. The site was appointed as the 487th historic site in October 2007.
