Religion

Gamcheon has a history of creating special guests from a community of ascetic people named Taegeukdo born around 1900, due to the political upheaval in North Korea at the present time. Although they are just a small religion, they always firmly believe in the philosophy of “great polarization” and the theory of yin and yang and take the symbol of the blue and red swirl. And it is also a symbol that sits at the center of Korea’s national flag today.

After the Korean War in 1955, the rebuilding of the country and the city of Busan was no exception, so the local government requested the relocation of more than 800 Taegeukdo religious households to move to another area. That is why the center of the church was moved and today almost completely dominates the town of Gamcheon.

It was also the worst period to haunt people because cholera epidemic lasted throughout the 1960s, and electricity was not supplied until 1965.

The rebirth of art

Korean tourists will be very surprised to see the overall architecture of the entire town with layers of construction and interwoven together quite meticulously and elaborately. In 2009, an art project was implemented to implement artworks throughout the town, attracting the participation of many artists, painters and art students.
