Naesimyoyeok-gil Station

Capital Defense Command – Hyoja-dong Cemetery

This section passes through Korea’s largest eunuch cemetery, situated in Bukhansan National Park. Visit Naesimyoyeok-gil and take a look into the lives of eunuchs whose role was to support the king’s everyday affairs, following his every step like a shadow.
On this path you will also find ‘Yeogiso,’ the place where a Korean geisha jumped into a pond to put an end to her desperate wait for her lover, who had been summoned as an official to build Bukhansanseong Fortress. Geisha or eunuch, their place holds little significance in the vast sweep of history, but they were individuals striving to live their lives as we do today. Walking along the path leads us to ponder lives of which we know so little and which were overshadowed by the greater tide of history.
