독락당은 회재 이언적 선생의 제사를 받드는 옥산서원 뒤편에 있는 사랑채이다. 이언적(1491∼1553) 선생이 벼슬을 그만 두고 고향에 돌아온 뒤에 거처한 유서 깊은 건물이라고 한다.

조선 중종 11년(1516)에 지은 이 건물은 낮은 기단 위에 세운 앞면 4칸·옆면 2칸 규모로, 지붕은 옆면에서 볼 때 여덟 팔(八)자 모양을 한 팔작지붕이다. 집을 향해 오른쪽 3칸은 넓은 마루인데 앞을 모두 터 놓았으며, 왼쪽 1칸만 칸을 막아 온돌방을 만들어 놓았다. 그러나 원래는 맨 오른쪽 칸도 막아서 방으로 사용한 흔적이 남아 있어, 대청은 가운데 2칸뿐이었던 것을 알 수 있다. 기둥은 둥근기둥을 세우고 대청 천장은 뼈대가 모두 노출된 연등천장이다.

독락당 옆쪽 담장에는 좁은 나무로 살을 대어 만든 창을 달아 이 창을 통해서 앞 냇물을 바라보게 한 것은 아주 특별한 공간구성이라 할 수 있다. 독락당 뒤쪽의 시내에 있는 정자 또한 자연에 융합하려는 공간성을 드러내 준다고 하겠다.

More About Korea

Korea is one of the oldest continuous civilizations in the world with over five thousand years of history. According to the original creation myth, the world we live in today is the work of the Heavenly Prince Hwanung, whose father was the King of Heaven.The Heavenly Prince asked his father to give him some land to govern, so the Father sent him down to Mount Taebaek. With him the Prince brought the Minister of Clouds, the Earl of Rain and the Chancellor of Wind. They also brought three thousand helpers.Under the shade of a sandalwood tree the Prince founded a holy city called Sinsi, the City of God. He put his Ministers in charge of three hundred and sixty areas of human culture, teaching them to grow crops and to make laws concerning what is good and what is evil.A tiger and a bear living in a nearby cave saw this city and desperately wanted to become human. Every day they came to the sandalwood tree at the center of the city to pray fervently for becoming humans.Hwanung saw their devotion and gave them instructions to remain in the cave and fast for one month, eating nothing but garlic and mugwort. The tiger was too impatient to stand the long and boring days in the cave, so he gave up and left, but Bear maintained the fast. At the end of the month she was transformed into a beautiful woman who became the mother of the Korean people.Her first son was Don-gun, the First King of the Korean people. When Don-Gun passed on the throne to his own son, he became a Mountain God. It is interesting that mountain gods are still worshipped today in Korea.Text by Steve Smith.
