Introduction
The Andong Folk Village was originally a part of the Andong Folk Museum, which, in turn, was submerged after the Andong Dam was built. The thatched and traditional houses were moved to its current location. At the present entrance to the folk village are two large totem poles with comical carvings of people's faces. Located next to the gate is a monument inscribed with the poem of famous Andong poet and democracy activist, Yuk-sa Lee (1904~1944). His most well-known piece of work 'gwangya' (wild plain) is inscribed in the monument. A hill situated behind the monument leads to the filming location of the popular drama 'taejo wanggeon', based on the life of King Taejo. Due to its historical roots, the Andong area has become a popular backdrop for numerous television dramas. When King Taejo founded the Goryeo Dynasty (918~1392), the local village leaders and kin supported his leadership, strengthening his influence throughout the Andong region. Approximately 20 buildings of the Goryeo era are used in the drama 'Taejo Wanggeon', including government offices and private homes.
