The master of handwriting inthe East, to celebrate Misu Heomok’s study and thought



Misu Heo Mok was the great scholar of the middle of the Joseon Dynasty. He created the unique handwriting, Gojeonpalbunchae, and it is evaluated as a revolutionary achievement in the history of Korean calligraphy, and it affected Chusachae later. He was one of the key figures of the Namin faction that was famous for a Yeosong argument with Song Siyeol, who was another famous scholar at that time. After crossing Gangseo 5gyo bridge above Anwolcheon Stream and going straight up 300 meters to the north, you can reach the tomb at an altitude of 100 meters on the left at this location.



There was Eungeodang, where he had lived at that time, 500 meters from the tomb. Eungeodang had a garden named Sipcheongwon having 10 kinds of evergreens and Goeseokwon with fantastic shaped stones. However, it was completely destroyed by the Korean War. You can see what it was only through Sipcheongwondo by Heo Ryun. In his tomb, there are many polished stones done with a delicate touch.
