▪ Korean academies
      private Confucian academies of the Korean (Korea) Yi dynasty (Chosŏn dynasty) (1392–1910), founded by the members of the ruling class who did not hold official posts; their purpose was the educating of local yangban, or aristocratic youth. Sŏwŏn were usually built on sites associated with famous Confucian scholars of the past. They had their origin in the Paekundong Sŏwŏn, established in 1543 by Chu Sebung, a county magistrate in Kyŏngsang province, in honour of the Korean scholar An Yu.

      The birth of the sŏwŏn at first contributed to the reinvigoration of Confucian learning in Korea. But they soon developed into family and factional power bases that tended to accentuate the growing divisions among the ruling class. Although at their height there were about 600 sŏwŏn, most had already been closed before the introduction of modern public educational institutes made their functions outmoded.
