Andong Hahoe Village 2 Days Tour

Andong Hahoe Village, A village itself as a museum

Andong is the home of Confucianism in Korea. During the Joseon Dynasty, Andong attracted scores of Confucian scholars becoming a pioneering city in Confucian thought. This city also contained the highest number of private schools from the Joseon Dynasty as well as Confucian schools. To this day, Andong still has around 26 private schools from the Joseon Dynasty. This city also acted as a home to the noble class during the Joseon period. Many of the homes of the noble class are still standing in Andong; some are kept up by the relatives of the original owner. Certain homes have established guest house accommodations. 

Andong Hahoe Village has preserved the housing architecture and the village structure of the Joseon Dynasty. Moreover, the village was not artificially created; there are people who actually live there. Three sides of Hahoe Village is surrounded by the Nakdong River the longest river in South Korea. Because the river swirls around the village, the village is named Hahoe,(Ha means a river and Hoe means turning around) and is also called the spinning river village.
 
Because the village is surrounded by mountains and water, it had never been invaded. This is the reason why these houses still remain in their original structures.
 
Hahoe Village is also famous for the Byeolsin exorcism, maskdance and Hahoe mask. The Hahoe mask is the oldest mask in Korea and is used in the Hahoe Maskdance.
