With Baengmasan Mountain at the back and Geungnakgang River flowing through the rolling plains in the front, Seochang Folk Village is known for its geographically ideal location. Formed in the mid-Joseon Dynasty, the village was once called "Sedong Village," named after General Kim Se-geun who was an active member of the Righteous Army during the Japanese Invasion of Korea in 1592. Originally, it was a traditional village consisting of hanok (traditional Korean houses); in the 2000s, however, the area was made into a traditional village for visitors to experience traditional farm life in the countryside. Seochang Folk Village is also famous as the venue of the annual Mandeuri Harvesting Ritual.
