Hey,

I'm renting my room that is just across the street from Gwanganli Beach. It is a 10-15 second walk from the front door to the beach road (right behind Starbucks and Cafe Pascucci). It’s the perfect place to live in Busan if you enjoy access to the beach, bars and restaurants. I'll be renting it out from late September (flexible start date), both short term (2-3 months) and long term renting options (3 months plus) are available. If you rented short term and wanted to extend and stay longer we could talk about that and include a term in the lease where if we both agreed after 1 month, it might be possible to add additional month(s). 

The apartment has everything that you need to move in right away. You don't need to bring anything, but yourself. It has a queen size bed, futon, TV with all the channels, fast Wifi, nice kitchen for cooking, pots and pans, stove, everything. There is a good air conditioner that cools the room quickly.

The view that I have in my room (extremely small view of the beach) is from the small balcony with the washing machine. My room is on the 2nd floor. The roof photos are the 5th floor.

Reasons you need to feel better about your Korean skills (feat. Hyunwoo)

Fri, 2021-09-10 15:40

Do you feel like you're not progressing how you'd hoped? Are you too busy to study lately? These are common things I've heard from Korean learners over the years, and they're completely normal.

So I met up with Hyunwoo from Talk To Me In Korean and he shared some solutions and some advice. Ultimately, we talked about how you need to feel good about where you're currently at, no matter where that is. We talked about the reasons why you should, and also when some people shouldn't.

Geumgangam Hermitage – 금강암 (Geumjeong-gu, Busan)

Wed, 2021-09-08 23:26
Dolbada, or “Sea of Rocks” in English, at Geumgangam Hermitage near Beomeosa Temple in Geumjeong-gu, Busan.

This posts contains affiliate links. I receive a percentage of sales, if you purchase the item after clicking on an advertising link at no expense to you. This will help keep the website running. Thanks, as always, for your support! 

Hermitage History

Geumgangam Hermitage, which means “Diamond Hermitage” in English, is one of the more popular hermitages on the Beomeosa Temple grounds in Geumjeong-gu, Busan. Although there is no way to confirm whether Geumgangam Hermitage existed before the late Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910), there are records that show that it was constructed in 1803 by the monk Chuigyu-seonsa. Since its foundation, Geumgangam Hermitage has been reconstructed twice; first in 1863 and then again in 1899.

More recently, and during the 1980’s, Geumgangam Hermitage, which was a smaller mountain hermitage, started to gradually gain in popularity. It’s from this popularity that the hermitage began to grow in both size and influence.

Like the neighbouring Anyangam Hermitage and Daeseongam Hermitage, Geumgangam Hermitage is located to the south-west of Beomeosa Temple and a little further up Mt. Geumjeongsan (801.5 m). But while Geumgangam Hermitage welcomes visitors, both Anyangam Hermitage and Daeseongam Hermitage are strictly off-limits, as they are centres for Buddhist monastic studies.

Hermitage Layout

You first begin your trek up to Geumgangam Hermitage from the upper left side of the Beomeosa Temple grounds. Here you’ll find an opening with a large collection of rocks. This area is known as Dolbada, or “Sea of Rocks” in English. Continuing up the trail through the Dolbada, you’ll come to two wooden bridges. Instead of going over them, which will eventually bring you much further up the mountain to Wonhyoam Hermitage, hang a right. The hermitage is about three hundred metres up a stone stairway and a collection of cascading water.

Having finally mounted all the uneven stairs, you’ll see a sign with the name of the hermitage on it, as well as a bridge that spans the length of the cascading water. At this point, you should also be able to see the Iljumun Gate out in front of the main hermitage grounds at Geumgangam Hermitage. Instead of having the more traditional hanja characters writing on it, the writing on the nameplate is written in Korean. And the nameplate simply reads “Geumgangam – 금강암.”

Passing through the uniquely designed Iljumun Gate, you’ll enter into the beautiful Geumgangam Hermitage grounds that has lush green grass growing in the main hermitage courtyard. Straight ahead of you is the Daejabi-jeon Hall. The outside walls to the main hall are adorned with fairly traditional paintings. One is the Palsang-do (The Eight Scenes from the Buddha’s Life Murals), and the other set is the Shimu-do (The Ox-Herding Murals). The Palsang-do set is on top, while the Shimu-do on are the bottom. The Shimu-do are placed within a circular design, while the Palsang-do are fading with age. Inside the Daejabi-jeon Hall, on the other hand, are a triad of main altar statues centred by Seokgamoni-bul (The Historical Buddha). This central image is joined on either side by golden statues of Munsu-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Wisdom) and Bohyeon-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Power). Behind this triad is a beautiful wooden relief. To the right of the main altar, you’ll find another stunning relief. This wooden relief is dedicated to Jijang-bosal (The Bodhisattva of the Afterlife). And to the left is the third stunning wood relief inside the Daejabi-jeon Hall. This relief is a depiction of the Shinjung Taenghwa (Guardian Mural). And rounding out the Buddhist artistry inside the main hall is an all-white mural dedicated to Gwanseeum-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Compassion) on the far left wall.

Surrounding the Daejabi-jeon Hall are a collection of shrine halls. To the immediate right of the main hall is a rather top-heavy three-story stone pagoda. Out in front of this simplistic three-story pagoda is an intricate stone incense burner with a dragon design around its base. Above this pagoda is the Samseong-gak. Rather interestingly, once again, the name of the shrine hall is written in Korean on the signboard. The outside walls to this hall are adorned with a mural dedicated to Sanshin (The Mountain Spirit). Inside this shaman shrine hall, you’ll find the three most popular shaman deities housed inside its walls. In the centre of the three hangs a golden relief dedicated to Chilseong (The Seven Stars). To the left hangs a golden relief dedicated to Sanshin. And to the right hangs another golden relief; this time, this golden relief is dedicated to Dokseong (The Lonely Saint).

To the left of the Daejabi-jeon is a diminutive Jong-ru (Bell Pavilion). The bell inside this pavilion is equally compact. But also like the pavilion, it’s beautiful in design. Up the embankment, you’ll find an entrance to a cave. This cave is the hermitage’s Yaksa-jeon Hall. Housed inside this cave is an all-white image of Yaksayeorae-bul (The Medicine Buddha). The white statue of Yaksayeorae-bul is pouring water from the bottle it holds in its left hand. And surrounding the central image of Yaksayeorae-bul are tinier statues of all-white Buddhas.

Further up the embankment, and only accessible by way of the Samseong-gak Hall, is the Nahan-jeon Hall. The exterior walls to this hall are painted with various Nahan either studying or teaching. As for the interior, you’ll find another golden relief hanging in the centre of the main altar. This golden relief is centred by Seokgamoni-bul (The Historical Buddha). And it’s fronted by a diminutive triad of statues, again, centred by Seokgamoni-bul and joined by Munsu-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Wisdom) and Bohyeon-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Power). Flanking this main altar triad are statues of the sixteen Nahan (The Disciples of the Historical Buddha). There are also two wooden reliefs joining the golden relief on the main altar. However, these two reliefs are of the Nahan.

How To Get There

From the Beomeosa Station subway stop, stop #133 on line #1, leave this station through exits #5 or #7. From there, walk five minutes to the bus stop and take Bus #90 to get to the entrance of Beomeosa Temple. From the entry of Beomeosa Temple and the historic Iljumun Gate, you’ll need to take the trail that leads to the left. Eventually, you’ll come to a wooden bridge that spans a stream. This area is known as Dolbada, or “The Sea of Rocks” in English. Hang a left but don’t cross the bridge; instead, head up the stone stairway next to the cascading water for about three hundred metres. Along the way, you’ll pass by Daeseongam Hermitage to your right. You’ll know that you’re nearing the hermitage with a sign that reads “금강암.” This sign is situated on a bridge that spans the length of the rolling rocks and water. Head up this path for an additional fifty metres until you arrive at Geumgangam Hermitage’s Iljumun Gate.

Overall Rating: 7/10

Geumgangam Hermitage is large enough to be a temple. And if it wasn’t attached to Beomeosa Temple, it would probably be far more famous than it already is. It’s located up a beautiful valley and up the cascading waters that flow down from Dolbada, or “The Sea of Rocks” in English. Geumgangam Hermitage is home to a handful of beautiful temple shrine halls including the Nahan-jeon Hall and the Samseong-gak Hall. Included in these halls is the rather unique Yaksa-jeon cave shrine hall. If you’re to visit any hermitage at Beomeosa Temple, Geumgangam Hermitage should be high on that list.

~다(가) 보면 "If you keep..." | Live Class Abridged

Wed, 2021-09-08 17:44

The grammar form ~다 보면 itself is an intermediate level verb ending and sentence connector used to mean "If you keep doing" something, but using it often requires other knowledge of several grammar forms, so I would probably classify it as more useful in the advanced level.

~다 보면 is also often compared with ~다가는, but these two forms are very different despite having similar English translations. We also very briefly compared ~다 보면 with ~다 보니까.

Simhyangsa Temple – 심향사 (Naju, Jeollanam-do)

Wed, 2021-09-08 00:36
The Dry-lacquered Seated Amitabha Buddha of Simhyangsa Temple inside the Geukrakbo-jeon Hall. Temple History

Simhyangsa Temple is located in Naju, Jeollanam-do at the foot of Mt. Geumseonsan. The temple looks out towards the Yeongsan River. It’s believed that Simhyangsa Temple was first established by the famed monk Wonhyo-daesa (617-686 A.D.). Originally, the temple was called Mireukwon after Mireuk-bul (The Future Buddha). The temple is also said to have been the place where King Hyeonjong of Goryeo (r. 1009-1031 A.D.) prayed for peace as he fled the royal palace. The Goryeo Dynasty (918-1392) was being invaded at this time by the Tungusic people of Manchuria in 1011.

The temple was later repaired in 1358. And it was reconstructed by the monk Mongsu in 1789. A ridge beam at Simhyangsa Temple says “The reconstruction of Yonghwa-dang Hall of Sinhwangsa Temple in Mt. Geumseong – in the 54th year of Emperor Qianlong in China” written on it. This writing was discovered after this temple shrine hall was dismantled and restored. This temple shrine hall is currently called the Mireuk-jeon Hall, and it was restored after a rainstorm had damaged it in August, 1976. The restoration was then completed by October, 1977. With this in mind, the temple was once known as Sinhwangsa or Sinwangsa Temple in 1789, when the inscription inside the Mireuk-jeon Hall was written. It’s unknown when the name of the temple changed to Simhyangsa Temple.

In total, there are ten buildings at Simhyangsa Temple, which includes the Geukrakbo-jeon Hall that was constructed in 1982.

In total, Simhyangsa Temple is home to two Korean Treasures. The first is the Three-story Stone Pagoda Outside the North Gate, which is Korean Treasure #50. The other Korean Treasure is the Dry-lacquered Seated Amitabha Buddha of Simhyangsa Temple. This statue is Korean Treasure #1544. Additionally, the entire temple grounds are considered Jeollanam-do Cultural Heritage #88. And the Seokjo-yeorae-jwasang inside the Mireuk-jeon Hall is believed to date back to the Goryeo Dynasty, and it’s classified as Jeollanam-do Cultural Heritage #309. Simhyangsa Temple, as of 2006, also participates in the popular Temple Stay program.

Temple Layout

Simhyangsa Temple is sandwiched between two high school campuses and at the foot of Mt. Geumseongsan. The Iljumun Gate at the temple is rather small in comparison to other temple entry gates with the same name. However, the Iljumun Gate at Simhyangsa Temple isn’t used; instead, there’s a wide open entry to the right that allows visitors to enter the large temple grounds. In line with the Iljumun Gate is the two-story Jong-ru (Bell Pavilion). This entry area of the temple grounds also has the visitors centre to the far right, as well.

Having passed by the Iljumun Gate and the Jong-ru Pavilion, and up a flight of stairs, you’ll enter into the lower courtyard at Simhyangsa Temple. The two temple shrine halls in this area are the Myeongbu-jeon Hall and the Mireuk-jeon Hall. And out in front of these two temple shrine halls are a pair of stone pagodas. While both are beautiful, it’s the three-story stone pagoda to the left, which is officially known as Three-story Stone Pagoda Outside the North Gate, that’s Korean Treasure #50. This pagoda is believed to date back to the late Goryeo Dynasty (918-1392). Originally, this pagoda stood, as the official name kind of hints at, at the North Gate of Najueupseong Walled Town. But in 1915, the pagoda was moved to Geumseonggwan Guesthouse, which is Korean Treasure #2037. At this time, the Geumseonggwan Guesthouse was used as a county office. Then in 2006, the pagoda was moved, once more. This time, it was moved to its current location of Simhyangsa Temple. Because of weathering, part of the pagoda has fallen off the three-story structure. And because of its smaller size, locals call the pagoda the “Dwarf Pagoda.”

In front of the pair of pagodas is a sunken area, where you’ll find a pair of five hundred year old hackberry and quince trees. Both seem to have seen better days, but both are still standing, all the same.

To the right rear of the pair of pagodas, on the other hand, is the Mireuk-jeon Hall. The exterior walls to this temple shrine hall are beautifully adorned with dancheong colours and floral murals. Stepping inside the Mireuk-jeon Hall, you’ll find a large stone statue dedicated to the Buddha on the main altar. This statue is known as the Seokjo-yeorae-jwasang, and it’s believed to date back to the Goryeo Dynasty (918-1392). There are murals that are also housed inside the Mireuk-jeon Hall like a mural dedicated to Mireuk-bul (The Future Buddha), as well as a Shinjung Taenghwa (Guardian Mural).

To the rear of the Mireuk-jeon Hall and the Myeongbu-jeon Hall, and up a flight of stone stairs, is the Geukrakbo-jeon Hall. The main hall at Simhyangsa Temple was built in 1982. The exterior walls to the Geukrakbo-jeon Hall are beautifully adorned with a masterful collection of Palsang-do (The Eight Scenes from the Buddha’s Life). Also, you’ll find a collection of dragons, both big and small, up in the colourful eaves of the main hall at Simhyangsa Temple.

Stepping inside the Geukrakbo-jeon Hall, you’ll find a solitary statue of Amita-bul (The Buddha of the Western Paradise) on the main altar. This statue is officially known as the Dry-lacquered Seated Amitabha Buddha of Simhyangsa Temple, and it’s Korean Treasure #1544. The statue was created using the dry lacquer method, which was fairly common at this time. Amita-bul has almost an exotic look to his face. The expression on his face is somewhat austere, which was typical of similar statues from the late Goryeo Dynasty. The statue is similar to the age and design of other statues in the Naju region like at the neighbouring Bulhoesa Temple. The statue is believed to have first been created during the late Goryeo Dynasty.

As for the rest of the interior of the Geukrakbo-jeon Hall, you’ll find three murals to the right of the main altar. The first is a simplistic mural dedicated to Gwanseeum-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Compassion). This mural is joined to the right by an intricate mural dedicated to Dokseong (The Lonely Saint). Dokseong is joined by two dongja and a white crane in this mural, as well as a sneak peak of a portion of a wooden deck in the top left corner of the mural. And hanging on the far right wall is another Shinjung Taenghwa (Guardian Mural). To the left of the main altar image of Amita-bul, you’ll find a collection of murals dedicated to famous Korean monks, as well as a shrine and mural dedicated to Jijang-bosal (The Bodhisattva of the Afterlife).

To the left of the Geukrakbo-jeon Hall, you’ll find the top four stories to a historic pagoda that seems to have lost its bottom stories through the passage of time.

Climbing another flight of stairs to the upper courtyard this time, you’ll find the Samseong-gak Hall to your left. The exterior walls to this hall are adorned with scenic landscapes. Stepping inside the Samseong-gak Hall, you’ll find three newly created and painted reliefs dedicated to Sanshin (The Mountain Spirit), Chilseong (The Seven Stars), and Dokseong (The Lonely Saint).

Across from the Samseong-gak Hall, and through an open field with a trail, you’ll come to a stupa field with a collection of historic stupas of monks that once called Simhyangsa Temple home.

How To Get There

From the Naju Train Station, you’ll need to walk to get to the Naju City Hall bus stop. The walk will take you about nine minutes (513 m). From this stop, you can take one of several buses to get to Simhyangsa Temple. You can take Bus #100, #101, #102, #104, #105, #109, #400, #401, #402, #403, #404, #500, #501, #502, #503, #504, or #505. After five stops, you’ll need to get off at the “Baekminwon – 백민원” bus stop. After walking about twenty-five minutes, or 1.8 km, you can finally arrive at Simhyangsa Temple.

Another way to get to Simhyangsa Temple from the Naju Train Station is to simply take a taxi. The ride should last about seven minutes (3.6 km), and it’ll cost you around 5,100 won.

Overall Rating: 7/10

While Simhyangsa Temple is little known outside the Naju, Jeollanam-do area, there is quite a bit for people to see and explore like the pair of pagodas at the entry of the temple grounds, as well as the Goryeo Dynasty statue of the Buddha housed inside the Mireuk-jeon Hall. Additionally, all the murals throughout the temple grounds, both inside and outside the temple shrine halls, are first rate. But the main highlight to the temple is the beautiful, historic statue of Amita-bul housed inside the equally beautiful Geukrakbo-jeon Hall at Simhyangsa Temple. So if you’re ever in the Naju area, add Simhyangsa Temple to your list of temples you need to visit.
