  • Oksan Seowon is a vow erected to commemorate the virtues and learning of The Revered Scholar of Korea, The Korean Period, and it is also a rare place where you can see the handwriting of The Great Master of The Joseon Dynasty, Chusa Kim Jung-hee, and Han Seok-bong in one place. Kim Chong-hee's handwriting is the "Oksan Seowon" in front of the old capita, and the main gate, "Reverse Gate" and "The Old Person,"" is the handwriting of Han Seok-bong. The vow itself is a very pleasant place, but the valley in front of the seowon is a hidden attraction, and it's a great place to just sit back and listen to the sound of water in the valley.

  • It's a great way to get to a place that's historically meaningful. Gyeonggi Oksaeawon is a world heritage site with the largest number of books in Korea.
