Dongchaessaum on lunar 15 was held by young men who wished to be blessed with bumper crops. This folk game commemorated the victory in which three powerful local leaders and the Andong people helped Wanggeon, the founder of the Goryeo Kingdom to thwart Gyeonhyeon's attack of Andong in the early Goryeo Kingdom period.The participants of the game were divided into two sides and if a leader or his rod fell down to the ground, the game was over and the winners enjoyed their victory by throwing their shoes to the sky and going around the village. This was usually played in the spacious Nakdong riverside or in an open field.
Nottari Balggi was enjoyed by females on Lunar January 15. This folk game originated from a historical event. When King Gongmin, the 31st King of the Goryeo Kingdom, arrived at a stream without a bridge on their way to Andong seeking refuge with his queen against the invasion by Chinese rebels, the village women formed a human bridge so that the queen could cross it on their backs. It also included a wish for an abundant harvest like other folklore plays, but has lost much of its original purpose due to social and cultural changes.
Hahoe Byolsingut Talnori, a mask dance, has been performed from the lunar January 1st to 15th to entertain the Gods since the middle of the 12th century. It is dramatized with poignant satire on the upper class and corrupted Buddihism, and shows sympathy for the villagers' sufferings. Mongdurichum and Ogeumchum are fundamental dances in the performance. This dance with entertaining, incantatory, and aesthetic appreciation was designated as important intangible cultural property No.69 and the masks used in the dance were also designated as Natural Treasure No. 121.
