Traditional Korean Roof
1 Jul, 2013 | From Dong Hwa Park of South Korea
This is another self-made postcard from Dong-Hwa from his photographs of Busan. This postcard is of a traditional Korean roof. Traditional Korean roof construction has traditionally used many kinds of natural materials. They are made of neowa (shingle), giwa (tiles), byeotjib (rice Straw), stone giwa (tiles), eoksae (eulalia) and goolpy (oak bark).
Hanok is a term to describe Korean traditional houses. Korean architecture lends consideration to the positioning of the house in relation to its surroundings, with thought given to the land and seasons.
Dong wrote in the letter that his dad have been to the Philippines, and he strongly recommends him to visit too.
