A newly released documentary on seowon will be released at the exhibition titled “Heading to Seowon,” jointly organized by the Cultural Heritage Administration and Andong City, and hosted by the Mirae Culture Foundation.
The film delves into the cultural and historical value of seowon, featuring different seowon around the country along with expert interviews, according to organizers.
A separate experience zone is installed for children to learn about the UNESCO World Heritage, equipped with virtual reality videos, puzzles and coloring books.
Nine 16th-century seowon, which have largely maintained their original forms, were enlisted on the UNESCO World Heritage List in July 2019. There are about 600 seowon throughout the country.
The nine are -- Sosu Seowon, Namgye Seowon, Oksan Seowon, Dosan Seowon, Piram Seowon, Dodong Seowon, Byeongsan Seowon, Museong Seowon and Donam Seowon -- located across the central and southern provinces.
Following the showing at Byeongsan Seowon, the exhibition will travel to Dosan Seowon from Sept. 1-4, and to Daegu International Airport from Sept. 6-12.
Admission is free at all three locations.
