A writer born in Hwacheonrepresents Korean poetry, a look back at Wolha Lee Taegeuk’s life and artwork


Wolha Lee Taekeuk, born in Hwacheon, is a leading writer of contemporary Korean poetry. He started his literary career with “Raspberry” in 1965, and his main works include “Sunset of the West Sea”, “March is”, and “Seagull”. Since 2007, it has cost 4 billion won to build Wolha Literary House with two floors above ground and a basement, and it has an exhibition hall, storage, living hall and multipurpose room. The exhibition hall is decorated with keepsakes, including his pipe, handwritten manuscripts and photos, all donated by his family. Also, it exhibits letters exchanged with other writers at that time such as Dujin Park, Byunghwa Jo, Sang Goo, Namjo Kim and Yunsook Mo. 

On the second floor, a poetry magazine that was first published in Korea, “Sijo Literature” by Wolha Taeguek Lee,is displayed. There is a wax figure of the author writing a manuscript and a miniature of his birthplace, which was submerged by Hwacheon dam construction. The beautiful road to here is famous for scenic drives. It offers beautiful valley scenery of Hwacheon, from Sansuhwa Tunnel to Sansuhwa-ro, Pyeonghwa-ro and Hoeum-ro.
