There are 12 Chinese letters of choseo style on the rock, which mean that “This beautiful place belongs to the world of gods.

Those 12 letters seem to be written by Yang Saeon, who was especially good at writing big letters in choseo style and considered one of the four greatest calligraphers in early Joseon period.

Others see the seven letters were written by Jeong Haeon, who governed the region for two years from 1750. Jeong Haeon was so famous for his writings that he wrote the signboard in calligraphy in Changgyeong Palace. The year of writing indicated in the letters is 1751 when Jeong Haeon controlled the region.
