Jeongseon Arirang Learning Center was established on October 7, 2001 in order to preserve and nurture Gangwon-do Intangible Cultural Asset No.1 Jeongseon Arirang and succeed and develop traditional local culture.
It takes about 3 hours to drive from Seoul. It is located at Auraji River. There are learning rooms and material rooms on the first floor and Jeongseon Arirang performane stage and image facilities on the second floor. In the late Gorye dynasty, loyal subjects of Gorye dynasty moved to Jeongseon and wrote poems in chinese character about thier loyalty for the king and the missing for their hometown. Classical scholars translated these poems for those who didn't understand chinese character. These translated poems mixed with folk songs became Jeongseon Arirnag. This is the place for studying Jeongseon Arirnag.
It was listed in the UNESCO Representative Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in December 2012, and was also newly remodeled in 2014 to provide more convenient facilities for visitors so that they can feel the emotion and essence of Arirang in a more comfortable environment.
