Hahoe Mask Dance Drama Performance has 800 years of tradition, featuring a performance dealing with daily life and the conflict between the common people with the privileged class of Yangban (noblemen) and Seonbi (Classical scholar). Andong is well-known for having a large community of Yangban from old times that makes a mask dance performance from this town representative in Korea. The performance is comprised of six sections beginning from the mid Goryeo to the present, satirizing the prestige of the ruling class and society contradictions sharply.
