The masked play of Hahoe Byeolsin Exorcism itself was classified as an important intangible cultural asset #69 by the South Korean government on November 17, 1980. Hahoe and Byeolsin masks themselves were also labeled South Korean national treasure #121 at the same time. The Hahoe mask dance is one of the folk dramas of Pungcheon Hahoe village in Andong city and dates from the Goryeo Dynasty.
