Dodongseowon is a Confucian Academy that honored Kim Goeng-pil, who was regarded as the greatest scholar from among the Dongbang Ohyeon (the Five Greatest Confucian Scholars of the Joseon Dynasty). It was severely damaged by fire during the Japanese Invasion of 1592, and Confucian scholars from all around the country raised funds to restore the buildings of this academy. Pillars of the lecture hall are wrapped with a piece of white paper called sangji to signify that this academy is dedicated to a great scholar. The structural beauty of Dodongseowon is highly recognized and even its walls were designated as a Treasure.
