This is an example of a typical coastal village house that a haenyeo diver would have lived in on Jeju Island. If you look closely, you’ll notice the haenyeo standing on the porch. A stone wall fences in the property, while also acting as a protective barrier against the island’s strong winds. Jeju Island was once crisscrossed with these stone walls, which can still be seen today in certain parts of the island. This house is one of many located at the Jeju Folk Village where they work to preserve the island’s history. Many Korean dramas are filmed here, and the village sets remain intact for visiting fans. Their website is here if you’re interested in visiting one day!
