Los Angeles, CA Jongga: The House of the Head Family Cherishing the Spirits and the Proprieties of Confucian Scholars is a collection of photographs that introduce the traditional culture of Andong, which has long been acclaimed as the mecca of Confucian scholars and jongga, or the head family of Korea. But it should also be noted that Andong is a tradition-bound city where lots of jongga families representing the major clans of Korea had put down their roots. For more than a decade, the photographer, Ms. Dongchun Lee, has recorded in photographs the traditional rituals that were performed quietly and undisturbedly in the houses of the jongga family members in Andong and have encountered every aspect of traditional culture related to food, clothing, and shelter in old Korea.

Andong, South Korea Weather Forecast | AerisWeather
These traditional houses of the Joseon Dynasty are a tourist drawcard. You park and then catch a shuttle bus to the entrance to the village. The families living there are very accommodating to having large groups troup through their lovely little streets, but protect their privacy deservedly so , so there is no chance to see inside any of the homes. You can enter a couple of courtyards to see how the set up is. The narrow laneways are cute, as are the ridiculously low gateway entries I am very tall, so entering would have been quite funny.
