Where the hearth-throbbing loyalty of Kim SiSeup, one of the ‘six officials’, is at rest


Maewoldae refers to a sharp cliff above 595m altitude of Bokgyesan Mountainin Geunnam-myeon, Cheorwon-gun. The name ‘Maewoldae’ has its origin from the known name of Kim SiSeup, one of the six officials’. In the early years of Joseon, Prince Suyang overthrew King Danjong- his nephew- and took the throne to himself. Kim SiSeup raged to this and deserted his place of a government official. It is said that he lurked here for a while after wandering.

When you take the east direction from the peak of Maewoldae, you can find the cool water of Maewoldae Falls. As if it proves the long time of existence of the falls, green moss is covering the huge rocks where the water touches. Maewoldae Falls is the filming site of the dramas ‘Lim Ggeokjeong’ and ‘Deok-i’, and it is also popular as a tour spot of Cheorwon together with ‘Sambuyeon Falls’ and ‘Jiktang Falls’.
