For peope who like to track down literary landmarks, the tomb of Park Kyung-ni, author of the sweeping epic T’oji (Land) can be found on Mireukdo, Tongyeong, just above a memorial hall dedicated to her life and work.
And for those who are short of time (like me), and like to tick off a number of attractions simultaneously, you can bag the tomb while ascending to the top of Mireuksan, the peak which gives the island its name, and which has a commanding view over the Hallyeosudo national park. A viewing point near the peak is dedicated to the novellist, and points out exactly where the tomb is:
And, because I’m super-lazy and didn’t get to see the tomb itself, here’s a close-up photo of the picture of the tomb at said viewping point:
Mireukdo is joined to the mainland by a short bridge close to the main harbour of Tongyeong. Do pay it a visit. Great food, great scenery, and a great contemporary music festival at the end of March every year.
