Gosongjeongji (Gosong Pavilion Site)

This is the place where Kim Chungju, the grandson of Kim Mungi, lived. Kim Mungi was executed for involvement in restoring Danjong to the throne. Kim Chungju escaped from the capital and hid in Hwajeong-dong. He built a house with straw and lived by selling charcoal. He called himself ‘Tanong’ and didn’t eat meat or drink alcohol all his life. He wore hemp clothes all his life. The name Gosong means withered pine tree and comes from the fact that Kim Chungju cried over Danjong and the pine tree dried up because of those tears.
