Although many traditional Korean cultures have been designated as cultural assets, the representative cultural heritage that continuously produces cultural value is Hahoe-tal(mask) and Hahoe Byulsingut Mask Play. Both passed down from Hahoe-dong, Andong City, have become a representative cultural resource of Andong City, and, beyond the village, as one of the representative cultural brands of Korea. This article examines the cultural activities conducted through the Hahoe-tal and Hahoe mask dance in the Andong area, and examines the factors that have established itself as a representative brand in Korea.
