Town Tour

S useo-dong was given such name as the Han River flows on the west of this area. It was formerly called as Gungmal or Gungcheon. It is because there are the tombs of Muandaegun Bangbeon, who was the 7th child of Taejo of Joseon and his son Gwangpyeongdaegun, in this village. Initially, Gwangpyeongdaegun was the 5th child of King Sejong and Sejong sympathized for Bangbeon as he died under a false accusation without having a child. Thus, he sent Gwangpyeongdaegun as an adopted child for Bangbeon to offer services.
