Traditional Korean farmyard

From the kdrama "My Liberation Notes," episode 5, the front yard of a farmhouse. The low table is called a pyeong-sang (flat table), and it's used as a room, in that people leave their shoes on the ground. Sometimes a small table is put in the middle (for food or drinks), or sometimes it's just for sitting, or lounging.

There are other Korean-looking things, and the wheelbarrow is probably generic, rather than local. But I've seen more plastic (rather than steel) pans lately, and this one has a steel brace in the front, rising from the axle, to strengthen the part that might be holding the most weight when the wheelbarrow is in motion.
