Hoejae Yeongjeok left office and built the main building as the main building in the stream of Oksan in Gyeongju's Angang-eup near Yangdong Village. For this reason, after Hoejae died, Oksan Seowon was built near Dokrakdang. Oksan Seowon is located in Seshimdae, and it means to wash one's mind with water falling from Yongchu and seek learning through nature.
