Yekki Village, located at Seobu-ri, Dosan-myeon, Andong, was built for the residents of Yean Village whose houses were disappeared by Andong Dam in 1976. It officially belongs to Seobu-ri, Dosan-myeon, Andong but the people there still call the village Yean Village. Ye-an Village used to be the most commercially well-developed village in Andong. However, ever since the Andong Dam was built, its economy has declined. Then, there was a relation with Han Jemma, a famous art director, and they proceeded with a project of 'Establishing Dosan Seobu-ri Art Village' in 2015 and named the village as Yekki Village, which means, 'The village has talent (Kki) with art (Ye).' Later, they added artworks to the declined village by arranging the alleys, painting on the walls to form a mural street, and replacing the signboards of shops with tidy and unique ones. In addition, the ancient governmental building (Seonseonghyeon) in the village was reformed into Geunmindang, a Korean house gallery, and the town hall, a painting room for painters, while the post office turned into a craft shop. Thus, Yekki Village is full of stories where both tradition and art coexist.
