On May 3,2014 the JDC Junior Journalists visited Samsunghyeal, the birth place of Jeju’s culture and one of its most popular tourist spots. The green trees, fresh air and bird’s tweeting welcomed the Junior Journalists and mentors. Most visitors were resting and enjoying the four day holiday weekend by visiting Jeju with their family and friends.
Samsunghyeol is the place that represents the beginning of Jeju’s culture. According to legend, the forefathers of Jeju, Go, Yang and Bu were born 4300 years ago. They married 3 princesses who brought seeds and horses to developed their life and and along with Go, Yang, Bu they founded the Tamna Kingdom.
The journalist interview visitors to find out their opinion of Samsunghyeol and Jeju becoming an international city. Fammy N.G, a 65 years old woman, walking around Sungbodang said, “I like Jeju because it preserves some of the old things. But if it is getting modern, I wouldn’t like to come.” Another vistor, Sonjungseop who was also visiting with his wife and baby said, “Jeju is a really nice tourist spot in Korea. I have been here several times because Jeju’s natural environment is really good and has lots of places to visit and to rest. So Jeju is the place where I want to visit again!”
Visiting Samsunghyeol is a good experience. The views are scenic and a wonderful place to learn the cultural history of where Jeju began.
