[KS] Origin of term "자연부락"?

Dear all,

While working on dissertation research in Cheju, a local intellectual and
colleague informed me that "자연부락" (or 자연촌락) was a Japanese colonial
invention. The term is still used on Cheju among geographers (notably in
the 제주도지 [2006]) and for tourism reasons. I was wondering if anyone knows
when this term came into being and how long has it been used in Korea.
Also, are there any particular books or articles (in Korean or in English)
on the topic?
