    From August 1 to 9, the Department of Construction Engineering organized an exhibition called the “FengShui Publication Exhibition” at the Hanyang University Museum Exhibition Hall. This was the first Feng Shui Exhibition that was ever attempted in Korea. The exhibition had demonstrated publications ranging from the original Feng Shui text that came from China to books which were written during the Joseon Dynasty(1392-1910). In addition, the traditional compass technology of Feng Shui, which is applied in various fields, was also introduced in the exhibition.

   The event was held to highlight the eight years of research on Feng Shui done by Han Jeng-su, a Professor in the Department of Construction Engineering, in cooperation with the Feng Shui Korea Association. Since 2008, Han and the association has gathered together annually at Hanyang University to hold conventions regarding the subject of Feng Shui, and finally in 2014, they were able to conclude their research.

   Historically, Feng Shui was widely used for the positioning of buildings in order to bring luck and fortune. Many Asian countries have traditionally considered Feng Shui to be an important consideration in construction. However, as many have become industrialized, much of the focus on Feng Shui have diminished, with opponents viewing it as a superstition or even a scam. Park Jeong-hye, the Head Member of the Association of Feng Shui Korea expressed his disappointment on how Feng Shui is viewed today. “Feng Shui is a system used to create harmony between humans and the environment in a philosophic and rational manner. It is not just some old superstition telling you where you should or should not build your house. Through the exhibition, I hope the widely misunderstood aspects of Feng Shui will be clarified and re-evaluated among people today,” said Park.
