An agungi is a firebox found in traditional Korean kitchens which is used to burn firewood or other fuel for cooking. 
It is also a part of the traditional floor heating system, or 'ondol'. 
The flat cooktop counter or hearth installed over the agungi is called a 'buttumak'

This book is called "Cats' Journey to Chosun Dynasty" which I published.
It is an historical illustration book that shows the Chosun Dynasty with cute cats as the main characters.
The main characters in this book are actually real stray cats living in my neighborhood.
After published, I had two exhibitions named "The Nyang" with illustrations of this book.
