Detailed description

Dongjaseok means a message that families and friends want to send to the dead. The Jeju people place a Dongjaseok figurine right next to the grave to protect the dead. Dong Jaseok has many meanings to the South Korean people. As a Korean historical figure from the Joseon Dynasty, which reigned from 1392 to 1897, Dong Jaseok was a recognized national hero who fought against the Manchurian invasion in the 17th century. He is mentioned as a hero who headed a detachment of men who successfully defeated the Manchurian army.

Dongjaseok is also a mushroom-shaped rock formation that was formed by wind and water erosion on basalt rocks. The name "Dongjaseok" literally means "mushroom-head-shaped stone" in Korean, which perfectly describes the appearance of the rock formation. Dongjaseok is located on the east coast of Jeju Island, near the city of Seongsan. Dongjaseok has become a symbol of the island and one of the most famous tourist destinations in South Korea.

Jeju Island has a rich history and culture, and its residents are proud of their heritage. Many historical monuments and sites of historical significance can be found throughout the island, such as the tombs of the Silla kings, Buddhist temples, traditional villages and much more. Therefore, it is worth visiting Jeju not only for Dongjaseok, but also to learn about the history and culture of this beautiful island. Jeju Islanders traditionally made wooden figurines called "dol hareubang," which they placed at the graves of their dead as a kind of offering and protection from evil spirits. These figurines are one of the symbols of the island. They usually have the shape of a human figure, usually with a large head and a wide smile, which represent the spirit of a man. It is believed that these sculptures protect against diseases and misfortunes. The tradition of creating "dol hareubang" dates back to the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910), and these carvings were used as symbols of strength and valor.
