休 rest 휴

hanjarest

He is in need of rest.
그는 휴양이 필요하다.

Two Korean words,
휴식 休息 rest, relaxation
휴양 休養 rest, recuperation

The phrase for Be At Leisure (休閒) is comprised of Rest (休) + Leisure (閒)

be at leisure

Can you see how door and moon together make leisure?  Makes sense that after work is done, at home at night, you can rest and relax.
