A Study on the Conventional Use of Spring Water in Jeju Province
Abstract
This study aims at examining the social and living cultural
values of spring water in Jeju Province by exploring the
conventional use of spring water. Interviews were used as a
primary data gathering method. In addition, the names of spring
water were examined to identify its value for a community.
The study is based on the conventional use of spring water in
three villages in Jeju City, Samyang-dong, Yongdam-dong and
Iho-dong. The most important task of the study is to examine
how social relationships were built in communities based on the
use of spring water. The study found out that the boundary of a
village was clearly defined by the common use of spring water.
Furthermore, it shows that by using the same spring water,
villagers developed pride in their village community and led an
ecological life in harmony with the sea.
The following specific conclusions have been drawn from the
study.
First, spring water, which was used for daily life, was also
called Sanmul, which means "water coming from Mt. Halla." This
suggests that Jeju people felt a sense of community as local
people who used the same water.
Second, spring water stimulated Jeju people's pride in their
villages and created a sense of solidarity in the community. Their
assessment of and pride in the quantity and quality of spring
water, along with the effect of spring water and their faith and belief in spring water, played a crucial role in enhancing their
sense of solidarity. That is, they proved the superiority of their
villages through the spring water they used, and their pride in the
spring water constituted the foundation for the continuity of
village communities.
Third, multong , a place formed around a natural spring,
represents women's life in the past. Particularly, multong for
women, where women did a variety of things including fetching
water, washing vegetables, doing laundry and washing their
bodies, was the place that showed Jeju women's dramatic life.
What is special about women's use of multong is that they led a
regular life according to biological time. Multong for women was
both the site of housework and the site of ecological life that had
led traditional society.
Meanwhile, it is necessary to mention the social changes
resulting from the replacement of multong by convenient water
supply facilities in the modernization period. It is clear that the
value of spring water is not confined to its use as drinking water.
By using the same spring water, villagers felt a sense of
belonging to their village, and the use of spring water allowed
people to live an ecological life in harmony with nature. However,
with the provision of water services to households and the
building of modern bathrooms in private homes, the use of spring
water gradually decreased, which in turn brought about the
collapse of communities.
What can replace in today's society, which becomes increasingly
complicated and individualized, multong which enriched community
life and enhanced a sense of solidarity in a village? This is the
question that lingered while this study was carried out.
