After a year of life under a pandemic, agreeing

to do something “when COVID is over” now

sounds like less of a promise and more of an

avoidance strategy. Yet with vaccine rollouts

underway in many countries and Korea’s plans to widely

administer the vaccine this spring and summer, the end

may finally be in sight. But it’s not a simple matter of

going back to the way life used to be.

In this issue, we look at COVID’s wide-ranging effects

and how its impact will continue to be felt long after

case numbers dwindle. “Untact” and “ontact” are

the new reality everywhere from schools to K-pop

concerts. While social distancing measures have

been instrumental in protecting our physical health,

they’ve also taken a toll on mental health. Articles on

art therapy and forest bathing introduce safe ways

to reduce stress by reconnecting with our creativity

inside and nature outside.

Jeonbuk Life is a quarterly project of the Jeollabuk-do

Center for International Affairs (JBCIA) which is a specialized

public diplomacy agency established by the Jeollabuk-do

Provincial Government. Our goal is to spread news to

Jeollabuk-do’s international community, as well as to carry

news of Jeollabuk-do throughout Korea and abroad. This

magazine publishes once per season.

※ Jeonbuk is an abbreviation of Jeollabuk-do.

A pause in international travel has put the focus back

on local tourism and shopping, and this issue covers

some of Jeollabuk-do’s best nature spots to enjoy as

the weather warms up, whether you’re looking for

beaches, waterfalls, or springtime blossoms. And read

to find out more about how to buy regional produce

and support local farmers through delivery services

like Slowbox or your neighborhood local food store.

Spring is a season of hope and rebirth. While we’re not

through the pandemic yet, we’re still looking ahead at

ways to heal and adapt to our changed world together.

has brought

about a lot

of changes to the way

the world works. But it’s

not only changed the

it’s also sparked the

creation of several new

words to express

different aspects of life

during the pandemic. So

what are some of these

new words, and what

exactly do they mean?

“Untact” is a compound word made up of

the prefix “un-” and the second syllable

of “contact.” Combined, the two become

untact, meaning “no contact.” The word

first appeared in South Korea in 2017

and refers to any services and economic

activities that take place without direct

communication between people.

The word untact was first coined by

a group of local consumer science

gurus who envisioned “a future where

people increasingly interact online,

and companies replace humans with

machines to immunize themselves

against the effects of rising wages and

a rapidly aging workforce” (Bloomberg).

The concept of untact services was not

widely understood before the pandemic,

but its effects could already be observed

throughout Korean society. With its highly

developed technological infrastructure

and widespread use of smartphones and

other smart devices, Korea has already

been in the process of moving countless

services online; the pandemic merely

sped things along.

For example, most service industries in

Korea had already begun implementing

some form of untact offering. Banking,

taxes, shopping, and food ordering had

already moved online with e-commerce

services and AI chatbots assisting users.

Electronic kiosks and self-checkout

machines began replacing employees

at convenience stores, fast food

locations, movie theaters, and even

in public transportation hubs. South

Korea has also been testing drone and

autonomous robot food deliveries in

some remote locations, as well as robot

waiters in some cafes in Seoul. In fact,

some of the only industries that had not

yet adopted untact services were office

jobs, education, and medicine. But with

increased social distancing, even those

have had to rapidly adapt.

“언택트(Untact)”는 부정과 반대의

의미를 뜻하는 접두사 “un”과 접촉을

뜻하는 단어 “contact”로 구성된

합성어이다. 이 합성어는 2017년에

한국에서 처음 등장했으며, 두 사람

간의 직접적인 소통없이 이뤄지는

비대면 경제활동을 뜻 한다.

언택트 서비스(비대면 서비스)는

편의점에서의 셀프 체크아웃 라인,

공항에서의 전자 키오스크, 또는

사용할 때 앱을 통해 잠금 해제만

하면 되는 자전거 대여 등 제공된

기술과 상호작용하는 고객(사용자)

즉, 단 한 명의 참여자만 있으면 된다.

"Untact" 是 由 表 示 否 定 和 反 对

的 前 缀 "un" 和 表 示 接 触 的 单

词 "contact" 组 成 的 合 成 词 。 该 合

成 词 于 2017 年 在 韩 国 首 次 登 场 ,

“Ontact” has now become the new reality

for many in office jobs, education, and

medicine. Ontact, combining “online” and

“contact,” refers to face-to-face interactions

conducted entirely online. Like untact, it

reduces in-person contact, but ontact still

requires face-to-face interaction. Untact

services only require a single participant:

the user interacting with the technology


At the start of the pandemic, schools

nationwide began implementing some

form of online classes. Initially, these were

conducted in an entirely untact manner,

with students only watching videos and

doing homework online. But as students,

teachers, and administrators adapted,

face-to-face interactions through video

conferencing technologies like Zoom and

even Discord became widespread. Offices

also began conducting meetings and

interviews through video conferencing

software. Some doctors began to provide

video consultations. And most religious

services have moved either fully or partially

online, greatly reducing the number of

in-person attendees. But by far, some of

the most innovative ontact events that

took place last year were conferences and


In April 2020, I was privileged to help lead

the way with the Korea TESOL National

Conference. I built two websites for the

event, a promotional site, and the “live”

site where participants were able to log in

and view a collection of prerecorded or live

streaming presentations. While the videos

could be classified as untact, we also

coordinated several ontact Zoom sessions

and a dedicated Slack channel to provide

users a virtual “hallway” where they could

interact during breaks in the conference.

Later, interactive K-pop concert experiences

drew millions of global fans to virtual online

venues. Hyundai Card sponsored “Fanmade

Live” concerts that allowed viewers to

request songs, costumes, and dance moves

from the participating K-pop performers.

These concerts were performed in physical

venues and streamed on YouTube. CJ

Entertainment and the Korea Creative

Content Agency hosted two similar events

called KCON:TACT that were attended by

nearly 4.5 million global viewers each.

Fan-request features, augmented reality

graphics, and Zoom meet-and-greets

with fan faces sometimes appearing on

screen allowed viewers to feel even more

connected to the stars than during a typical

Enjoy Untact Events

During the Pandemic

Words & photos by AARON SNOWBERGER


“Contact” was how daily life

was conducted before Covid-

19. And this in-person, faceto-face

lifestyle is what many

people hope to return to when

it ends. However, the process

of automating traditional

manufacturing and services,

and moving more and more

industries online has already

begun, and will now only

continue to accelerate.

“컨택트(접촉: Contact)”는 대부분

사업이 인터넷, 전자상거래, 인공지능,

자동화 등 일상 업무에 있어서 사람간

접촉의 필요성을 덜 느끼게 하는

기술이 나타나기 이전에 사용했던 원래

방식이다. 그리고 비록 대유행병이

언택트와 온택트 서비스를 가속화

시켰지만, 우리가 4차 산업 혁명 동안

따르고 있는 이 추세는 대유행병이

끝난 후에도 이 새로운 단어들과

단어들이 나타내는 생활 방식이 우리

곁에 남아있게 할 것이다.

"Contact ( 接 触 )" 主 要 运 用 于 互 联

网 、 电 子 商 务 、 人 工 智 能 、 自 动 化 等

日 常 业 务 上 , 是 减 少 人 与 人 之 间 接

的 原 有 方 式 。 虽 然 大 流 行 病 加 速

了 Untact 和 Ontact 服 务 , 但 遵 循 第

4 次 产 业 革 命 模 式 , 这 一 趋 势 , 在 大

所 表 现 的 生 活 方 式 仍 会 伴 随 我 们 。

COVID-19 has brought with it many

difficult situations and circumstances.

But the pandemic has also encouraged

a wave of new innovations and many

new online opportunities that wouldn’t have even

been possible a few years ago.

For example, last year I was able to attend

two untact live concerts that were streamed

online from the United States. I also ran four

untact half marathons, one “in” the US, one

“in” Canada, and two in Korea. This year, I’ve

already registered for two international untact

conferences, and I am looking forward to more

untact concerts and races as the year goes on.

In previous years, many of these events would

have been impossible for me to attend in person

because of the cost of event tickets and plane

tickets just to get there. Typically, I would have

needed to spend hundreds to thousands of U.S.

dollars to attend a large international conference

or buy plane tickets to a race. But with these

events becoming untact during the pandemic,

travel costs are reduced to zero, and even ticket

prices have been reduced to just a fraction of the

original cost, often as little as 50 USD or less each.

So although the pandemic has brought

considerable hardship, it also has a silver

lining. I encourage you to investigate the word

“untact” wherever you are and see what kinds

of events, concerts, or races you might be able

to participate in that you otherwise could not.

The results just might surprise you.

Art for the Soul

Several studies prove that art can improve your mental health. Here’s a guide to places in

Jeonju where you can get creative, tune out the world, and tune in to your inner Picasso.

Words & photos by DIANNE PINEDA-KIM

January 20, 2020, marks the day when South Korea

saw its first confirmed COVID-19 case in Daegu, and

it has been a year since then as the nation continues

its battle against the pandemic. We’ve seen its

inevitable string of negative effects, mainly illness and

loss experienced by those directly or indirectly affected

by the virus. There’s also the economic downturn, with

strict regulations on business operations, lockdowns, and

social distancing guidelines being enforced until today.

We read several news articles day in and out about the

extent of the virus’s effects on both the physical and

economic health of nations, but only a few delve deeply

into the pandemic’s effects on mental health. In Korea,

four out of 10 Seoul residents believe their mental health

has deteriorated because of the coronavirus outbreak,

based on an online survey by the Seoul Metropolitan

Government from July to August last year (Yonhap News).

One of the key reasons — aside from job loss, lack of

leisurely activities, and the “inconvenience of wearing a

mask” — is disconnection from family and friends.


Experts say that the intersection of COVID-19 and mental

health is real, as the pandemic’s effects are triggering

mental health conditions or exacerbating existing ones.

“Good mental health is absolutely fundamental to

overall health and well-being,” said Dr. Tedros Adhanom

Ghebreyesus, director-general of the World Health

Organization, on its website: “COVID-19 has interrupted

essential mental health services around the world just

when they’re needed most. World leaders must move

fast and decisively to invest more in life-saving mental

health programs, during the pandemic and beyond.”

““Art is unquestionably one of the

According to studies,

isolation, fear of the virus,

and general uncertainty

cause stress and anxiety to

some, which is why seeking

professional help and

finding alternative ways

to improve mental health

are highly recommended

during this time.


Art therapy could be one

of these alternatives.

It is a discipline that

incorporates art and

psychology “to help people

develop self-awareness,

explore emotions, address

unresolved emotional

conflicts, improve social

skills, and raise self-esteem”

(goodtherapy.org). While

this discipline often involves

experts, even people who

don't seek professional help

and those without artistic

experience or natural ability

may still find benefits in

engaging in the creative

process. Painting, sculpting,

pottery, and carving are

common techniques used

in art therapy, while simple

activities like doodling,

scribbling, and making

cards are also proven to

be beneficial. In short, you

don’t have to be good at

art or knowledgeable about

its media types to feel its

wondrous effects on the

mind. Aside from eating

healthy, exercising regularly,

and boosting our immune

systems, it might be good

for us to also consider art as

a way to enrich our mental

well-being — during the

pandemic and beyond.

Artik Café is a stunning cafe near Wedding

Street in Jeonju where you can choose

your own creative medium: paint, oil

pastels, or colored pencils to work either

on a blank canvas provided or with the

cafe’s premade illustrations. Perfect for

beginners and those who simply want to

do something unique in Jeonju, this cafe

allows you to reserve a slot in their website

or via DM in their Instagram. They limit the

number of guests and require everyone to

wear masks the entire time, so you can

rest assured that the place follows proper

health and safety protocols. The cafe

stresses that there are no rules when it

comes to creating art, while its casual

settings and minimalist vibe will make you

feel relaxed. In the words of photorealistic

painter Chuck Close, “Inspiration is for

amateurs. The rest of us just show up and

get the work done. If you wait around for

the clouds to part and a bolt of lightning to

strike you in the brain, you're not going to

make an awful lot of work.” When it comes

to art, you don’t have to make your work

perfect. You simply have to begin.

Since the loosening of social distancing

measures, the Jeonju City local government

has opened public facilities including art

halls and museums to continue promoting

arts and culture and to support local artists

in the region. The Sori Arts Center is a huge

complex with buildings where classic musical

performances are usually held. Located near

Jeonbuk National University, the center has

a gallery that is open to the public. I went to

the exhibition entitled 자연스럽개, or Natural

Cat and Dog art collection. Opened since

last December until February 7, the exhibit

advocated for pet adoption and called for

people to never abandon their pets. From

the words of the artist: "The reason why

modern people are with pets is simple. We

experience the healing process naturally

while living with our pets. We may think

that we are responsible for their food and

shelter, but they are the ones who give us

laughter, energy, and positivity.”

There are several other upcoming shows in

the following months, including musicals,

classical music ensembles, and the most

anticipated concert of Korea’s legendary

musician, Lee Moon Sae on March 26-27.

Whether it’s mountains, ocean, or

endless flower fields, these places

througout Jeollabuk-do have it all.


Jeonbuk Life Magazine




Because of the pandemic,

locals in South Korea

are encouraged to travel

domestically, which in

turn boosted the country’s tourism

industry. More people are turning

to nature and the great outdoors to

escape crowded places and to have

the chance to relax in wide, safe, and

beautiful environments. Gone are the

days when locals would often choose

the major tourist cities in Korea like

Jeju and Busan for leisure travel.

Nowadays, city dwellers are seeking

solace in more rural provinces during

weekends and holidays, reawakening

a new interest in less traveled,

underrated yet deserving places

with many hidden gems, especially

like Jeollabuk-do. If you’re looking

for nature places where you can

recharge, the six spots listed here

are some of the best spots that the

region has to offer.

of well-being.

In Korea, “healing” is a term for relaxing your mind,

body, and spirit — whether you choose to go for a

day at a spa or go on a vacation somewhere. But

a more specific term became popular because of

the growing interest in nature. The term is “salimyok,” or

forest bathing, which is equivalent to sunbathing but,

you guessed it, it’s done in the forest.

The book “Forest Bathing: How Trees Can Help You Find

Health and Happiness” by Qing Li is about this particular

practice and tells how trees can promote health and

happiness. Koreans believe that forest bathing can

help a person de-stress, reduce blood pressure, boost

the immune system, and improve overall feelings of


If you’re looking for a place where you can try this

type of healing, Bugwi Cypress Forest in Jinan is most

recommended. It is located in an 8-hectare forest, 1.3

kilometers of recreation and healing forest road, and 1.1

kilometers of walking trail. It’s actually the best choice

for those who are not mountain hiking enthusiasts and

just want to go for an easy, comfortable trail. This place

is becoming popular on Instagram too, as many young

Korean women wear long, colorful dresses to take

pictures in the middle of the towering trees. The end

result looks like a page out of a fairy tale.

Cypress forests

have gained

particular renown

for the practice of

“forest bathing,”

drawing visitors

who want to


the benefits of

forest air while

appreciating the

natural scenery.

Jeonbuk Life Magazine

Ample free parking is also available closer

to the forest entrance, which includes a

tourist information center, convenience

store, and public restroom.

As soon as you pass the information center,

you continue on a paved path flanked by a

single row of cypress trees on each side until

you reach a fork in the road that opens to

an expansive cypress forest resting area on

the left. The resting area features wooden

benches and raised platforms, perfect for

a few minutes’ break before embarking on

your hike or for a leisurely picnic. You can

even enjoy a nap there — don’t be surprised

to see other forest visitors with a mat or cot

drifting off to sleep as they breathe in the

fresh forest air.

Cypress forests have gained particular

renown for the practice of “forest

bathing,” drawing visitors who want to

experience the benefits of forest air while

appreciating the natural scenery.


As the Sanggwan Pyeonbaek Forest

information center explains, cypress trees

give off phytoncides, or antimicrobial

substances that protect the trees from

things like rot and insect infestations —

but they also have benefits for humans,

too. The website Phytoncide Korea

summarizes some of the domestic

research into phytoncides’ ability to

alleviate allergy symptoms, reduce stress,

improve air quality, and even fight disease.

While many plants produce phytoncides,

coniferous trees like the cypress

generate them in higher concentrations.

Cypress trees generally give off the most

phytoncides first thing in the morning and

during the summer, but even on my late

morning January trip the forest air was

palpably aromatic and refreshing.

While the resting area is a destination

in itself, it’s only the beginning of the

forest. Sanggwan Pyeonbaek Forest was

first planted in 1976 and now consists

of 100,000 hinoki cypress trees, along

with other coniferous trees like pine and

cedar. From the resting area you can

continue along the wider paved road at

a gentle incline, or you can head up the

steeper footpath (follow the signs for

오솔길). As the footpath leads you up the

mountainside, it does not offer many

spectacular views below; rather, its charm

lies in bringing you deeper into the forest

so you can feel truly surrounded by the

trees’ majesty, like a storybook character

exploring an enchanted forest — or like

a film hero, as the forest was a shooting

location for the 2011 historical action

movie War of the Arrows.

There are a few smaller resting areas

along the footpath where you can stop

and enjoy more forest bathing. We were

the only hikers on a Sunday morning and

appreciated the chance to remove our

masks and take in the air as we reached

each resting area, but be sure to wear

a mask and observe social distancing

guidelines when other groups are present.

After you finish your hike, you can also

spend time at one of the cafes along the

road to the forest. Cafe and bakery Para

Mi offers a selection of sugar-free and

gluten-free treats, while Cafe Adlib has

huge indoor and outdoor seating options

perfect for social distancing while sipping

one of their handcrafted drinks. Along

the main street just north of the bus stop

you can find Garden Cafe Mother with

manicured garden views and a large menu

including sandwiches and fruit drinks.

Sanggwan Pyeonbaek Forest is an ideal

destination for healing and reconnecting

with nature, but there are plenty of places

throughout Jeollabuk-do to hike among

cypress trees.

❶ In Jeonju, a cypress

forest can be found on

Geonjisan following

the Jeonbuk National

University campus trail.

❷ In Iksan, follow the

trails around Baesan

to reach a resting area

beneath the cypress

trees, or journey to

Dudong Pyeonbaek

Village for a more

remote experience.

❸ And look out for

another cypress forest as

you explore Wolmyeong

Park in Gunsan.

These remarkable trees

remind us that in times

of stress or uncertainty,

sometimes the best

remedy is just to stop

and take a deep breath.

If you’re in need

of recharging

your mind and

is a place that

you will surely

never forget!

For travelers in Korea who are craving a one-stop

place that combines nature, history, and a city

vibe but want a more accessible option, Gunsan

is the best place to be. It is home to historical

attractions that are not only educational destinations but

also bittersweet reminders of the past. Not only that,

Seonyudo, a beautiful island surrounded by mountains,

lies in the heart of this county. Legend has it that it is

here where Taoists gained their miraculous powers. What

is quite a miracle, however, are the endless attractions

offered by not only Seonyudo, but also the 63 islands

that are close to it.

Seonyudo is famous for 10 Ri beach, which has fine

crystal sand and a breathtaking view of the sunset

that colors the entire waters with a golden light. One

of the unknown attractions is the rock beach just a few

minutes’ drive away from the 10 Ri beach. You can hear

the calming sound of rocks crashing onto each other as

the waves pull them back and forth.

Several activities are available here for those who seek a

little more adventure, such as zip line, banana boat, electric

scooter, mudflats, clam digging, and so much more!

If you’re in need of recharging your mind and stimulating your

senses, Gunsan is a place that you will surely never forget!

NOTE: Enjoy the sun and sea, but don’t forget to register your name in

one of the local government tents that gather visitor contact data and

check temperatures as measures to guard against COVID-19. Last but

most important, do not leave your trash by the shores! Any littering will

end up getting washed in the water. It’s easy to find trash bins around

there, but if not, make sure to keep trash for proper disposal later.

The turquoise blue

waters and quality

waves have long

made the beaches

of Gogunsan

a getaway for

people who

need a break

from city life.

There is plenty to do on the beaches,

from soaking up the sun and building

sandcastles to surfing and other water

sports. The turquoise blue waters and

quality waves have long made the beaches

of Gunsan a getaway for people who need

a break from city life. The water is so clear

you can see the bottom when it is even

4 or 5 meters deep. The pristine sand

of the beach sets the perfect mood for

relaxation. Bathrooms and showers are

available for rinsing off. The beach is full

of colorful stones in different sizes.

There are small mountains for hiking. As I

climbed one nearby mountain, the view of

the beach and islands was excellent. From

there it was beautiful gazing at how the

bridges connect islands, with blue seas

full of green small islands, and clusters

of local people’s homes with colorful


Seonyudo has a lot of excellent stores

where you can get various seafood as

well as barbeque and Korean traditional

foods. There are shops grilling fresh fish

and seafood. Food is cheap here. Clam

soup is famous here.

There is a scenic spot along the sea

connected by a bridge for enjoying the

beautiful view of the sunset and sunrise.

Walking along the beach, you’ll be in awe of

the stunning views and towering cliffs. This

is a great place to check out later in the day,

when the temperatures drop and you can

enjoy the sun setting behind the mountain.

Riding a bike along the beach is always

nice to do, especially if you are near one

with so much beautiful scenery. You can

rent a bicycle or scooter for a reasonable

price. A scooter rental costs just 15,000-

20,000 KRW for two hours.

Jeonbuk Life Magazine


A bike is very handy and two hours is

enough time to enjoy the scenery, but

don’t forget to take a helmet because the

road has turns as well as ups and downs.

If you want to go fishing, you can rent all the

materials from seaside shops. You will find

hundreds of people catching fish when you

enter the beach side. You can experience

catching clams for 4,000-6,000 KRW.

To reach Seonyudo, you can go either by

ferry or by a double decker bus. By ferry

it takes 30 to 40 minutes and you will

pass several small islands along the way.

Normally from a double decker bus, if you

sit in the upper deck you can enjoy the

scenic view.

The beach is very crowded during peak time

(mainly summer). In autumn, the beach

has fewer people compared with the peak

season and you can enjoy your time freely.

How does camping on the beach under

a starry night sky sound? Amazing, of

course. On the beach side there are

enough places to pitch your tent and

spend the night out. The on-site barbeque

is calling your name — bring your own

charcoal, fuel, and grill or get everything

you need from shops near the beach.

Whether you are 6 or 60, if you’re an

adventure lover then there’s nothing

quite like a zip line across the sea. From

the very first glance I didn’t realize that it

was a zip line because I’d never seen one

in person before. It is the longest overocean

zip line in Korea. You can enter near

Myeongsasimni beach’s entrance. The

Seounyu Sky Sun Line is 700 meters long

and 45 meters above the sea.

Seonyudo is very convenient for lodgings.

There are a few hotels and rental houses

that offer stays with reasonable prices.

place that one can only dream of. In Gochang, you

can make this dream a reality and set foot in a beautiful

gift of nature. The Borinara Hagwon Farm, or 보리나라

학원농장, is about an hour and a half drive from Jeonju. It

is known for its barley farm and nature park that is filled

with flowers that bloom in different seasons: sunflowers

and buckwheat flowers in summer, cosmos and pink

muhly in fall, and a wide variety of blooms in spring.

보리나라 학원농장은 전주에서

차로 약 한 시간 반 걸린다. 이곳은

보리농원과 계절마다 피는

꽃들로 가득해지는 자연공원으로

잘 알려져 있는데, 여름에는

해바라기와 메밀꽃, 가을에는

코스모스와 핑크 뮬리, 봄에는

다양한 꽃들이 피는 것을 볼 수

있다. 사진을 찍을 때는 꽃에서

떨어져서 찍도록 한다. 그리고

고창의 상쾌한 공기를 즐겨보자.

단, 자연을 존중하는 것을 잊지

말고, 꽃봉오리들을 밟아 상처

내는 일이 없도록 주의하자.

花 之 乐 园

高 敞 广 阔 的 花 田 让 我 们 想 起 了

我 们 的 世 界 多 么 美 丽 。

You can find this field in K-dramas like “Goblin,” “Tale of

Nokdu,” “My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho,” and “Bridal Mask.”

Just a few minutes’ walk from the barley fields is the pink

muhly section, where stunning wispy grass in different

shades of pink will take your breath away. The color

combination of pinks and purples change depending

on where the sunlight hits them, and this otherworldly

scene brings a feeling of warmth and beauty of nature.

It’s like stepping into a fairy tale where, instead of the red

and yellow colors of fall, everything is painted a pretty

shade of pink.

In another section of the farm, one can easily see the

bright yellow and orange colors of cosmos, one of the most

recognizable flowers in Korea. It comes in different colors of

yellow, orange, white, purple, and pink. Cosmos is the Greek

word for harmony, and just by looking at these beautiful

beds of blooms, you will feel calm, happy, and free.

NOTE: Frolic away, take pictures, and enjoy the fresh air, but be sure to

respect Mother Earth and remember not to step on or cause damage

to the blooms!

Gochang's Mighty Blooms

Jeonbuk Life Magazine


Our jaws

dropped at

the brilliant

red spread of

flowers in all


Words & Photos by


Last fall, my family went

to Gochang for the first

time to visit Seonun

Mountain. By chance,

the weekend in late September

when we went was peak season

for the mountain's famous red

spider lilies (꽃무릇). As soon as we

entered the Provincial Park, our

jaws dropped at the brilliant red

spread of flowers in all directions.

Red spider lilies are lovely in and

of themselves, but to see millions

in full bloom, with the early fall

sun reflecting brilliantly off their

petals, the vision is breathtaking.

Gochang is not only famous for

Seonunsan's red spider lilies

in the fall, it is also famous for

bright pink and red azaleas

surrounding Gochang fortress

in spring. Gochang Eupseong is

a sprawling fortress wall that

once surrounded 22 government

buildings and a small forest.

Visitors can walk around the

1.6-kilometer long wall, which

stands at 4-6 meters in height,

and view the surrounding city

from an excellent vantage point.

The views are impressive yearround,

but significantly more

spectacular in the spring when

the azaleas are in full bloom.

고창 별책부록

지난 가을, 나는 가족을 데리고

고창 선운사에 처음으로 갔다.

그 당시에는 몰랐지만 우리가

차를 몰고갔던 9월 말은 현지에서

꽃무릇이 절정인 때였다. 차에서

내려 도립공원으로 들어서는

순간, 우리는 입이 떡 벌어졌다.

선운사와 등산로 앞쪽으로

새빨갛게 핀 꽃무릇밭이 눈부시게

쫙 펼쳐져 있는것이 아닌가!

꽃무릇은 그 자체로도 예쁘지만,

가을햇살을 받아 눈부시게 빛나는

꽃들이 수백미터에 걸쳐 사방으로

펼쳐져있는 모습을 보니 숨이 턱

막힐 뿐이었다.

고창은 꽃무릇으로만 유명한 것은

아니다. 봄이되면 시가지 중심에

있는 고창읍성 주변에 화사한

분홍과 붉은 철쭉이 피는 것으로

유명하다. 고창읍성은 관아를

비롯한 22개의 건물과 작은 요새를

둘러싸고 뻗어있는 성곽이다.

관광객들은 전체 1.6km 길이의

성벽둘레를 걷거나 4-6미터 높이의

성벽꼭대기에서 시내전경을 볼 수

있다. 경관은 연중 인상적이지만,

성벽바깥쪽으로 진달래가 한창필

때인 봄에 특히 장관이다.

the park.


perfect place for flower enthusiasts and couples

is a hill in Jeonju's Wansan Park called “Flower

Hill.” There, you can see amazing ruby red

flowers in the spring, from April to late May.

These nearly face-sized flowers are a shocking shade of red,

with a sprinkling of white and pink flowers throughout the

park. This park, opposite Hanok Village and up a large, steep

hill, is just behind the Jeonju City Library. After climbing a

set of rickety stairs past the library, you will come upon a

hilly path into Wansan Park. The flowers include a kind of

cherry blossom as well as azaleas.

Once you make your way up the hill, the view is astonishing.

Bright red flowers, made even brighter by the sun shining

through their delicate petals, leap into view. The flowers

bloom on midsize trees that form an ocean of red for you

to swim through. If you go early enough, you can evade

the crowds of couples swarming into this forest for

photoshoots. These truly unique flowers offer a stunning

backdrop to any photo. Continuing further into the red

forest, you may sometimes find a striking contrast of whitepetaled

flowers against the ruby red ones, or light pink and

purple trees standing to one side along a path. Bright green

leaves and new grass add to the gorgeous contrast in this

spectacular display surrounding you.

Along the main path, there are hiking trails. You can

continue meandering through the flower forests seeking

perfect photo opportunities, or simply relax under the

trees. The vibrant colors of red, mixed with pink, purple,

and white, offer an unforgettable spring experience. The

flowers are arranged in a truly unique small forest that you

can explore, so make sure to visit this small park in Jeonju

during your spring travels.

Wanju's Wibong Waterfall

Jeonbuk Life Magazine


Just past

Soyang, Wibong

Falls looks


from spring

to autumn.

Words & photos by


Wibong Falls

is a two-tier


located in

the eastern part of Wibong

Fortress. The waterfall

looks beautiful from spring

to autumn. In this period,

anyone can see the two-tier

form and it has a lot of water.

In late autumn and winter,

it is almost dried up or even

completely dry. The waterfall

then flows as a river through

the village. On both sides of

the river there are several

pensions and picnic places.

After 2-3 kilometers, it goes

to a water reservoir.

From the bus road, one can

go on foot as well as by car.

The road leading toward

the falls is full of maple

trees, and in autumn the

color of the leaves makes

it even more beautiful. The

mountains in this place

in autumn change to a

colorful bed full of green,

red, and yellow, and when

the sunlight falls on the

mountain it’s amazing.

수 있을 뿐만 아니라 걸어서도 갈

Slowbox is a subscription package that will make you feel good.

Slowbox is a subscription

package that delivers organic

and seasonal agricultural

products to the homes of

residents across Korea. The company

was developed under the CSA

(Community Supported Agriculture)

to bridge the gap between small,

family-owned farms and the public.

Slowbox has five color themes, which

indicate diverse and lively colors of

Korean rural scenery. Their branding

is based on Korean traditional oh-gansaek

(5 secondary colors): dark blue,

purple, green, scarlet, and sulfur. The

main color is green, representing the

start of life.


The stories of the farmers are shared

online to bring familiarity to the

buying process. Too often when we

shop, there is a disconnect between

production and consumption, lost in

a distant and often unethical supply

chain. The farmers’ collective stories

put into perspective the importance

of shopping locally. Our career choices

are often tied to sociocultural aspects,

much like farmer Kim Jong-hwa, who

stated, "The biggest reason we started

farming was our kids. When I had a

second child, it was so hard to hold

down a job and raise children at the

same time. I didn't want to leave my

children with other people anymore.

So we decided to turn to farming

and spend more time with our kids.

It was natural, or even inevitable to

start organic farming because these

fields are where our kids play all day

and our foods are growing." Similarly,

farmer Lee Hong-geon stated that

he began farming organically for the

sake of the health of his family, whose

allergies were very severe. There is an

undeniable link between farmers who

choose the occupation as a benefit for

their families and buyers purchasing

the produce to better the health of

their loved ones.


Everything can be done online

through Slowbox’s website. First,

you choose between a small or

grand size basket; the small serves

up to two people, while the grand

serves up to four. Then you decide

what goes into the basket. You can

choose between basic vegetables,

seasonal vegetables, tofu, fruit, eggs,

or processed goods. The delivery

can be done weekly or biweekly for

up to three months at a time. Final

orders take place every Monday, are

dispatched by Wednesday, and then

arrive to your doorstep on Thursday.

Upon arrival, the baskets also include

recipes to help you make the most

use of the baskets. Then, you can

obtain points from sharing your

recipe creations on social media.


Slowbox’s mission is to continue the

education around local farmers and

create experiences that their customers

will remember forever. They organise

four visits to the producer farms every

year. They are also partnered with

WWOOF (World-Wide Opportunities

on Organic Farms), which began

in England in 1971 and connects

organic farms with volunteers.

Local Food Benefits

First, there are environmental

benefits from reducing carbon

emissions with shorter delivery

distances, growing non-GMO

products with fewer pesticides and

other chemicals compared with

commercial farming, and preserving

local biodiversity and soil health.

Second, consumers benefit. Much

local food is available within a day or

two of harvest, and many stores also

offer an online shopping mall and

free delivery service.

Last, local food has wide-ranging

benefits for farmers. By increasing

the flow of capital to rural areas,

local food initiatives create new

jobs, stabilize existing jobs, and

encourage a younger generation of

farmers to take up the reins from the

older generation. Rural tourism has

also become popular, with many city

dwellers sampling local foods in local

restaurants and taking farm tours to

see how food makes it from the farm

to their table.

Jeonju Food Market and Wanju Local

Food are some of the finest local food

stores in the nation, and each has a

Jeonju Food Market has operated in Jeonju since

December 2015 after the city developed its “Jeonju Food

Plan 2025” that September to kick off the initiative. Since

then, Jeonju Food Market has expanded to supply fresh

food from local farmers to over 1,000 public institutions,

including 137 Jeonju schools, delivering over 1,000 tons

of agricultural products annually.

According to a Yonhap News report, on July 16, 2020, Jeonju

announced that it would expand its Jeonju food delivery

service from 10 neighborhoods to all areas of Jeonju for

more convenience. The service provides twice daily same-day

deliveries of fresh agricultural products for online orders

through its website (jjfoodmarket.co.kr). Deliveries are

handled through one of two branch locations including the

Jeonju Stadium branch and the Songcheon-dong branch with

no delivery fees. The city expanded its delivery manpower

from late August in order to meet a higher demand during

the pandemic and expanded service area.

The city also

pledged to

increase the

number of fresh

farming products

and processed

foods from around

60 varieties to

over 100.


Wanju Local Food was the nation’s first direct local food

store, established in June 2012. The original store has

since expanded to become Wanju Local Food Cooperative,

including 12 direct local food stores such as Nonghyup

locations in Yongjin, Bongdong, Sangsang, Soyang, and

Gosan. The cooperative also runs a farmhouse restaurant,

online shopping mall (happystation.kr), and a farming

experience tour.

In a Jeonbuk Ilbo article dated November 3, 2020, Wanju

Local Food was ranked No. 1 in the 2020 National Local

Food Index conducted by the Ministry of Agriculture,

Food, and Rural Affairs. Of the 159 locations evaluated on

criteria such as local food production, job creation, and

consumption, only 13 were selected as excellent; among

those, Wanju Local Food alone received the highest S

(superior) grade. Wanju Local Food now operates the

nation’s largest number of standalone local food stores

and has the highest sales record of all stores over the

past 10 years.

This series revolves around a

group of youth who, because of

their poor economic situation and

average education background,

are considered by Korean

society in general as having less

chance of “making it big.” But

because of their ingenuity and

street smarts, they clinched a

spot inside the best technology

and business incubator called

Sanbox in Seoul. Will Seo Dal-mi,

Nam Do-san, and the rest of the

crew be able to stand out in the

fierce competition? And will their

start-up business survive in the

midst of the growing pains of

youth and love? Watch it to find


This drama is the classic case of

the battle between the haves

and have-nots. Park Sae-ro-yi is a

son of a middle-class employee

who spent decades working for

Korea’s biggest food company,

Jangga. But unjust circumstances

will force Sae-ro-yi to build his

own business to avenge his

father’s death and to prove

that integrity and perseverance

always win against money. You’ll

enjoy the thrills of watching a

group of inexperienced youths

as they learn the ins and outs

of starting a business, while

fighting society’s prejudices and

the threat of a big, monopolizing


Jang Geu-rae’s dream when

he was young was to become

a professional baduk (Korean

board game played with black

and white stones) player. But

real life happened, and without

a college degree and armed only

with a high school equivalency

certificate, Geu-rae gets hired

at a large trading company

as an intern. He tries to deal

with his everyday challenges

by using strategies he learned

in baduk. This is a critically

acclaimed K-drama that shows

the realities of working in the

Korean corporate world and the

admirable attitude of this youth

who overcame it all.

While South Korea is considered a

hub of plastic surgery and cosmetic

industries, this drama aims to show

the other side of enhancing your

physical attributes: that surgery

can't instantly improve your selfesteem.

The story follows Kang

Mi-rae, a college student who got

surgery to gain acceptance by her

peers after being bullied for her

appearance during her childhood.

But then she is branded as a

"Gangnam Beauty," a derogatory

term referring to someone

superficial and obsessed with

plastic surgery. Here, she goes on

a journey toward self-acceptance

and realizing that she needs to

work on her inner self to become

truly happy.

Kim Hye-jin was popular in

her childhood years for being

the prettiest girl in school. But

puberty happened, making her

“lose all her beauty,” which made

her insecure about meeting

her childhood sweetheart

after being separated for many

years. She ends up working in

the same company as he does,

and with her talent, skills, and

determination, she is able to

captivate his heart. The drama

shows her transformation from

being unsure of herself to being

an independent, confident

woman who rose from the ranks

of an intern to an expert editor.

This is a popular youth drama

adapted from a webtoon that

tells the story of Lim Ju-gyeong,

a high school student who gets

bullied and becomes an outcast

because of her appearance.

Before moving to another place

and transfering to another

school, she learns how to apply

makeup to drastically change her

looks. She keeps her real identity

from her classmates, all the while

not knowing that her childhood

friend has loved her for her true

self — with or without makeup!
