About the spa

cheonjiyeon01 Cheonjiyeon Hanjeungmak is the only place of Bulhanjeungmak, hot-steam sauna, which has a history of 600 years, in Myeongdong.Compared to the nomal sauna, hanjeungmak eliminates waste from the body, improves your metabolism, helps prevent women’s diseases, or have anti-aging effects.

Hanjeungmak(한증막; 汗蒸幕) is Korean traditional sauna. Intensely hot and dry, it uses traditionally burning wood of pine to heat a domelike kiln made of stone.

The first mention of hanjeungmak, initially referred to as Hanjeungso(한증소; 汗蒸所), is found in the Annals of Sejong in the 15th century. The record also state that the Korean kiln saunas were used for medicinal purposes. At that time, hanjeungmaks were state-supported kiln saunas maintained by Buddhist monks. Since 1429, the saunas were constructed separating facilities for men and women. There are a picture painted by Kim Jun geun in the 19th century depicting a hanjeungmak and its circular wall made from bricks accompanied by a bath house.

These are slow-cooked in the hottest sauna. The spots on the outside of the eggs are the cholesterol that slowly leaches out during the baking process, making them a cholesterol-free snack. They are eaten like a hard-boiled egg(삶은 계란).
