King Taejo, who led the Joseon Dynasty, wished to repress the Buddhist-centered policies of the former Goryeo Dynasty and to expand the following of Confucianism, which formed the basis of everyday etiquette. He established 'hyanggyo' as schools to teach his people Confucianism as well as literacy and traditional culture. Daegu Hyanggyo was established in 1398, but was closed in 1592 during the Japanese invasion and moved to its current location in 1932. Even to the present day, Daegu Hyanggyo is a site of Confucian education and traditional weddings.
