Ojukheon House gets its name from the many black bamboo trees that surround it. It was here where Sinsaimdang (1504-1551) lived and where her son Yi I (penname Yulgok; scholar and politician of the Joseon Period) was born. It was built during the time of the 11th King of Joseon, King Jungjong (1506-1544), and remains one of the oldest wooden residential buildings in Korea. It was designated as Treasure No. 165 in 1963 and has been maintained by the descendants throughout the generations.

Inside Ojukheon is Yulgok Memorial Hall, Mongryongsil, where Yi I was born, the household shrine called Munseongsa, and the various entrance gates. There is also Eojaegak, which was built to preserve the inkstone and Gyeokmongyogyeol (a book written by Yi I in 1577 for those beginning their studies), mementos of Yi I.

Bamboo altogether is incredibly sturdy and flexible. You can use it from anything from tools, to weapons, to housing.
In terms of which bamboo is used for what? I’m pretty sure it comes down to availability. Black bamboo is considered rarer and more ornamental, so it probably grows slower.

Growing up to 5 m (16 ft) tall by 3 m (10 ft) broad, it forms clumps of slender arching canes which turn black after two or three seasons. The abundant lance-shaped leaves are 4–13 cm (2–5 in) long~
