Mun Ik jeom
As a tattoo and scholar at the end of Goryeo, Mun Ik jeom brought a cotton seed from the Chinese Yuan Dynasty and contributed greatly to the spread of cotton. The main building of the Mun Ik jeom was Nampyeong, Sleeping Ilshin, Ho was Samwoodang, Chomyeong was Ikcheom, and was born between Mrs. Moon Suk-sun and Mrs. Cho. Mrs. Cho dreamed of an unusual dream and named her Mun Ik jeom, but she turned twenty years old and changed her name to Mun Ik jeom. Since I was a child, Mun Ik jeom has been very intelligent, friendly, and filial. He studied hard and always took first place. When Ikki turned 11, his teacher decided to send it to another teacher because he had nothing more to teach him and left home. Mun Ik jeom arrived at Hansan and studied at Yi Gok's residence. On the way to Ikgok's house, I saw many people, but I felt sorry for the people who couldn't eat because they had nothing to eat and the people who couldn't wear warm clothes even on cold winter days. From the time of my childhood, I felt sorry for this idea of Mun Ik jeom. It was the same when the people were in control.
In 1364, he was forced to participate in the work of Choi Yoo, and he was forced to live in oppressive life in Yunnan Province of the Yuan Dynasty. The most enviable of the Yuan Dynasty was that they wore warm and tough cotton clothes. The cotton clothes were cotton from a flower called 'cotton', and the flagship point was that they wanted to see cotton from the country and bring it to Korea, but at that time, cotton was very precious, so even in the country, there was a strict law on 'cotton' that brought it to Korea. It was impossible. He sneaked a bunch of cotton from the cotton field and applied cotton seeds, all of which were ten tolls. Mun Ik jeom, who returned to his home country after the end of his life, thought about how to bring cotton seeds to Korea. On the way back to his homeland, when the Mun Ik jeom spotted Mr. Cotton, he immediately struck down and killed him. After thinking about it a lot, I hid cotton seeds on the lid of a brush. Fortunately, ten tolls of cottonseed that I brought to Goryeo secretly went down to Jinju, my hometown, and tested them by dividing them with artisan Jeong Cheon ik. Among them, all he planted failed to cultivate, but from one of the seeds ripened, the buds bloomed to obtain 100 seeds, and in autumn, the cotton blossoms began to appear and the cotton field was covered with white cotton blossoms.
About ten years later, Mokhwa spread to all over the country. However, I didn't know how to use cotton wool. At that time, the monk of Won Dynasty was in Goryeo, and when the monk made a machine for pulling yarn, and this made it possible to pull yarn from cotton, the whole people could warmly wear the cotton clothes they saw in the Won Dynasty and winter. We had a cold winter season with burlap in the Goryeo Dynasty, but cotton was spread all over the country by the Mun Ik jeom and sent warmly. When importing cotton seeds from the Won Dynasty, Mun Ik jeom brought the cotton at the risk of death, knowing that it would die if he noticed that the cotton was brought. In other great wars, most of them were devoted to fighting for their lives. However, I was so impressed with the contents of this Mun Ik jeom and I was very grateful to warm up the people of Goryeo who had been cold during the winter by saving my body and my life and saving cotton for the people, not just fighting. I think it may be possible to develop and live. I am so proud that these Mun Ik jeom are our ancestors, and I am grateful for the warm winter. Currently, there is a Shindobi to honor his achievements along with the grave of Mun Ik jeom in Sinan-ri, Sinan-myeon, Sancheong-gun.
