Traditional Korean Villages Seek to Be Recognized as World Heritage Site

Yangdong Folk Village in the ancient city of Gyeongju and the Hahoe Folk Village in Andong in southern Korea have decided to jointly push for the listing and have decided to take steps to get the site designated as a World Heritage site.
