Meet the REAL JEJU!Exploring Jeju's Traditional House

Jeju is overflowing with cafes, restaurants, and accommodations renovated from old houses. The frameworks are similar, but every one of their clothes of different colors and shapes catch the eye. The most preferred old houses are Jeju's traditional houses. It is a composition where the Angeori (inner quarter, Ankeri) and the Bakgeori (outer quarter, Bakeri) are facing each other and the elderly couple lived in the Angeori, and their married children lived in the Bakgeori. On land, the space was divided by genders, but in Jeju, nuclear family in which family members lived together but maintained an independent lifestyle were melted into the space. Let's meet Jeju's traditional houses that have diverse variations from traditional Jeju houses to modern stone-walled houses with slate roofs.

A modern house located in the original downtown of Jeju <Gossi House>


It is a modern building built in 1949 during the Japanese colonial period. It was named Gossi (Go family) House because it was built by Go Yong-jun. The technology and structure, such as tatami, lattice glass windows, and the use of processed wood, followed the Japanese architectural style, and the functional aspect, such as space arrangement and composition, inherited the method of Jeju's traditional private houses.

The doorway quarter and outer quarter adjacent to Olle were built separately from the inner quarter and placed face to face, and the traditional layout of Jeju's private houses consisted of Sangbang (living room), Keun-gudle (master bedroom), Jungji (kitchen), and Gopang (storage). It was set to be demolished in 2014 as part of the Tamla Culture Square development project, but it was determined to be kept because of its great value in preserving the historical context of the old downtown.

After completion of repair and restoration in 2017, it has been operated as ‘Jeju Sarangbang’ and ‘Jeju Bookstore’ by the Jeju Urban Regeneration Center from 2019 to the present. Jeju Sarangbang can be used as a place for various gatherings such as societies and hobby gatherings. And Jeju Bookstore provides general books and Jeju-related materials collected from administrative publications published by Jeju Island on the theme of Jeju’s culture, history, and nature.

A cozy cafe embracing an old house in Jeju <Alley Cafe Oksu>


Alley Cafe Oksu is a cafe that carries on the shape of Angeori and Bakgeori, the prototypes of Jeju's traditional houses. Since there is no parking and you must enter by foot because it is inside the Olle trail, discovering the entrance creates a warm and intimate ambiance. Jeju's traditional house, which is more than 80 years old, has been renovated.

The characteristics of a typical Jeju traditional house were preserved. Angeori (inner quuarter, Ankeri) and Bakgeori (outer quarter, Bakkeri) face each other across a small courtyard. A new stone wall was built in the bathroom, old Japanese furniture was brought in, and the yard was reorganized to add more personality. You get the impression that you are visiting your grandmother's house thanks to the old milk refrigerator, retro-style tableware, soban (small tray-like tables) seating areas, and mother-of-pearl cabinet table. Angeori is being used as the main building and Bakgeori as an annex, and the yard is furnished as a special seat with a flower garden and a table.

Water cut-off, leaks, and power outages caused by typhoons or heavy snowfall occur annually while the old house's structure and components are preserved. The popular menu items at Alley Cafe Oksu are the nutty ‘Grandma Latte’ with powder of roast grain and the ‘Oksupanner’, a sweet mixture of latte and einspanner. Egg tarts, baked warm every morning, are a must-try dessert.

You give me an old house, I'll give you a new house <Dazayo>


It is a project to remodel an empty house in Jeju and give it a new life. Dazayo regenerates empty houses that are no longer inhabited and provides accommodation for travelers. The owner rents out the empty house for a long term free of lease, and Dazayo repairs the empty house and operates it as an accommodation facility, returning it to the landlord at the end of the lease.

Most of the vacant houses are Western-style houses with slate roofs built during the Saemaul Undong (New Village Movement) in the early 1970s, and they are also a symbol of rural modernization. The deeper the village, the more houses of this type remain. In Seogwipo City, a project to regenerate about 10 empty houses was completed with the first being the Dosun Stonewall House.

Construction and interior design take four months, while the concept and design of the restoration space require roughly six months. Instead of focusing on the condition of the property, Dazayo assesses the restoration of an empty house by looking at several surrounding factors. They look for a number of things, including whether it's inside the village, whether it's too close to the house next door, whether a parking lot is secured, and the noise level in the area.

An inviting old house transformed into a vintage restaurant <Communitable>


In Jeju, you can see many shops that have been converted into restaurants and cafes by renovating old houses and Communitable is one of them. It is a small Western restaurant located between houses in Wolpyeong-dong, Seogwipo-si. The house consists of a total of three units, which was built in the 1970s and 1980s, and it is a form that can be seen in typical citrus farmhouses.

The two houses are in the form of a Western-style house or Angeori and Bakgeori, where Angeori is a living space and Bakgeori is being used as Communitable. Across from Communitable is a small vintage store converted from a citrus warehouse attached to a house. The designs, colors, and textures of single-family homes at the time produced an ambiance of high class, but Communitable retained the traditional and homey sense of an old house. Chandeliers, candle holders, manual typewriters, and wooden turntables remind us of foreign old mountain lodges, and traditional household items such as retro fans, heaters, and old tableware evoke a sense of nostalgia.

In the two rooms, a table was placed by removing the door, and a bar-shaped table was made by resting a wood slab which was a door on the wide wooden window frame. Their signature menus are ‘Seasons of the Sea’ and ‘Sous Vide Beef Steak’, which are made with only natural seasonings and topped with seasonal fish.
