Mae.nan.Guk.juk.
Maehwa : Plum blossoms are the first to bloom, braving the cold of early spring.
Nancho : Orchids spread their delicate scent far into the mountains.
Gukhwa : Chrysanthemums bloom in late fall, surviving the first cold spell.
Juk(daenamu) : Bamboo is called the Four Gentlemen by comparing its unique advantage of maintaining green leaves even in the cold winter when all other plants' leaves have fallen,
to the character of a gentleman,
that is, a person with virtue and knowledge.

In the past, elegant Koreans placed furniture with this engraving in their homes. It was very expensive and not many families could afford to own one.
