About 4km towards Yuksimnyeong Pass from Janggye on National Road No. 26 and then up about 3.5km on the county road of Odong and Daegok, you’ll see a farming village with little over 40 houses in total. This little mountain town called Juchon Village is the birthplace of Nongae, who's one of the most respected patriots and role model for Korean women.

The village was named after Nongae, the most well-known of the Three Virtues of Jangsu, and also the most respected patriotic heroine in Korea. The village name literally means the “village of Ju” because it’s where she was born and lived until she was 13 while learning how to read and write from her father Ju Dal-mun.

Juchon Village is a place of historical importance mainly because it’s the birthplace and childhood hometown of Nongae. In the village, there are the house site of Nongae with her tombstone, Nongae Monument, and her statue. The place became even more well-known to the public after a Korean TV drama called “My Fair Lady”. Located right next to the Juchon Folk Town, there are much to see in the village. Many Koreans come to this village to see the statue and birthplace of Nongae and reflect on how she had sacrificed her life for the country.

The Juchon Folk Village is a reproduction of a traditional town with much to see, so the day goes by faster in the area.
