Yangdong (Folk) Village

1979년 1월 23일 중요민속자료 제81호로 지정되었다. 월성 양동마을(중요민속자료 189)에 있다. 양동마을에 들어서면 우측 성주봉 등성이에 있는데, 맞은편 북촌에 자리잡은 향단(香壇:보물 412)에 딸린 정자이다. 건축연대는 1560년경으로 여강이씨(驪江李氏) 문중에서 세웠다고 한다. 철종 때에 화재로 전소되었다. 지금의 건물은 1917년경에 본래의 모습대로 중건·복원한 것이다.

More About Korea

Korea is one of the oldest continuous civilizations in the world with over five thousand years of history. According to the original creation myth, the world we live in today is the work of the Heavenly Prince Hwanung, whose father was the King of Heaven.The Heavenly Prince asked his father to give him some land to govern, so the Father sent him down to Mount Taebaek. With him the Prince brought the Minister of Clouds, the Earl of Rain and the Chancellor of Wind. They also brought three thousand helpers.Under the shade of a sandalwood tree the Prince founded a holy city called Sinsi, the City of God. He put his Ministers in charge of three hundred and sixty areas of human culture, teaching them to grow crops and to make laws concerning what is good and what is evil.A tiger and a bear living in a nearby cave saw this city and desperately wanted to become human. Every day they came to the sandalwood tree at the center of the city to pray fervently for becoming humans.Hwanung saw their devotion and gave them instructions to remain in the cave and fast for one month, eating nothing but garlic and mugwort. The tiger was too impatient to stand the long and boring days in the cave, so he gave up and left, but Bear maintained the fast. At the end of the month she was transformed into a beautiful woman who became the mother of the Korean people.Her first son was Don-gun, the First King of the Korean people. When Don-Gun passed on the throne to his own son, he became a Mountain God. It is interesting that mountain gods are still worshipped today in Korea.Text by Steve Smith.
