The name was taken from an ancient history of China. Meaning lotus, the name Buyongdae is said to be given for Hahoe Village’s configuration like a lotus flower.

Byeongsanseowon is a Confucian school that was established by esteemed Confucian scholars to pay tribute to the memory of Seong-nyong Yu (1542-1607), who was well-respected for his writings and personality. His mortuary tablet is enshrined at this school. Around the time of 1863, Confucian schools enjoyed many freedoms under the Joseon rule, students and scholars of the school were exempt from taxation and other expenses. Byeongsan Seowon was one of 47 places in all of Korea and 2 in Andong not destroyed during the rule of Daewongun [Politician of Joseon Imperial family, 1820 ~ 1898] in 1868.

The Nakdong-gang River is situated just in front of the Confucian Academy. Cross the river and the Byeongsan Mountain can be found. By forming a folding screen like shape around the academy, the mountains both protect and add a serene beauty to the area.

The trip started with on time 7.30am pick up. Our private tour guide, Chance Kim, is absolutely fantastic, knowledgeable, friendly n jovial. The trip took us almost 3 hours to reach destination - Unesco heritage Andong Village. We had a good 2 hours walk in the village with detailed explanation from Mr Kim, whom also acted as our photographer. What a bonus!! Overall, it was an enjoyable & meaningful trip for us. This is a trip worth every cent paid for. Thank u Mr Kim...

My sister (Carol) and I were in South Korea touring with my daughter and her husband. My daughter was born in the Andong area of South Korea and my husband and I adopted her about 31 years ago. First trip to Korea for me. It was so great going to the Andong area, where she is from. What made it even greater is Chase, our tour guide! We toured the Andong Hahoe Folk Village and because we were the only two people on this tour (we went in mid-November, very non touristy time of year) we got great information and special attention from Chase. Topping on the cake was that Chase took lots of photos of Carol and I and shared these with us. This tour was definitely a highlight of our Korean adventures and I highly recommend it!
