I’ve noticed a lot of traffic on this site coming from within Korea by non-English speakers and I thought I’d make a special post for any Koreans who are curious and would like to learn more about Freemasonry.

많은 한국인들이 제 사이트를 방문해주시고 프리메이슨에 대하여 궁금해 하십니다. 그래서 제가 이글을 작성합니다.

Information about Freemasonry

Freemasonry에 대한 정보

Freemasonry is an organized society of men, Symbolically applying the principles of Operative Masonry and architecture to the science and art of character building.” The aim is to build a better world by building better men to work in their own communities.

프리메이슨은 남성들의 동아리 개념 조직입니다. 상징들을 이용하여 건물의 과학 및 예술 수술 미장과 건축의 원칙을 적용하여 사람들을 인격 수양을 합니다. 더 나은 사람들이 자신의 지역 사회에서 좀 더 나은 세상을 건설하기를 돕는 것입니다.

Freemasons are men from every race, religion, and political belief. They come from all professions and walks of life, but are drawn together to support each other in the journey of self improvement.

프리메이슨은 셋 원칙을 따릅니다 :

    • Brotherly Love – Every true Freemason will show tolerance and respect for the opinions of others and behave with kindness and understanding to his fellow creatures.
    • 박애 – 모든 프리메이슨은 다른 사람의 의견에 대한 관용과 존중을 표시하고 동료 에게 친절을 배풀며 이해합니다.
    • Relief – Freemasons are taught to practice charity and to care, not only for their own, but also for the community as a whole, both by charitable giving and by voluntary efforts and works as individuals.

How does one become a Freemason?

어떻게 하나는 프리메이슨이 되는거죠?

Usually by asking a Freemason. It is a general rule, in Korea as well as in most other countries, that a Freemason will not solicit men for membership.

보통 프리메이슨은 가입권유를 하지 않습니다. 이것은 한국뿐만 아니라 대부분의 다른 국가에서도 일반적입니다.

Masonic Myths

프리메이슨 신화

The internet can be a great resource for discovering information about Freemasonry, but beware that many websites seek to spread incorrect information and rumors:

인터넷은 프리메이슨은 대한 정보를 발견하기위한 훌륭한 자원입니다. 하지만 많은 웹 사이트가 잘못된 정보와 루머를 가지고 있기에 조심하여야 합니다.

The Freemasons are by invitation only.

프리메이슨은 초대받은 사람만 가입이 가능하다.

Well mostly false… In the United States, the United Kingdom and most other jurisdictions, invitations to join are never issued by anyone ever. If you want to join you must ask. In a few parts of the world, particularly where masonry is subject to persecution from hostile regimes, it is indeed invite only. That being said, there is much more to joining than simply filling out an application. Just as anyone can apply (in most jurisdictions), anyone can also object thus forbidding your application.

아닙니다. 미국, 영국, 또는 대부분의 다른 나라에서 프리메이슨의 가입을 초대하는 일은 없습니다. 가입을 원할 경우 스스로 요청해야합니다. 하지만, 프리메이슨에게 적대적인 나라에서는 초대받는 실제로 초대를 통해서만 가입할수 있습니다. 아무나 가입할수 있지만, 아무 이유도 없이 거절당할수 있습니다.

Freemasonry is a religion.

프리메이슨은 종교다.

Freemasonry is NOT a religion. You may often see the word lodge and temple interchanged when referencing masonic lodges/temples. In this context, the word “temple” simply means a place where meetings are held. It carries no religious connotation.

프리메이슨은 종교가 아닙니다. 프리메이슨의 라지 혹은 사원이라는 말은 회의가 개최되는 장소를 의미합니다. 이 말은 종교적은 의미가 없습니다.

Women can join a regular masonic lodge.

여성이 프리메이슨에 가입 할 수 있다.

Freemasonry has always been an organization for men and it is a cornerstone of the fraternity. Although there are organizations that admit women and style themselves like the fraternity, they are not recognized by any regular Freemasons. This remains a universal constant among all recognized lodges in the world. There are sister organizations such as the Eastern Star that women can join however membership in such organizations does not make it’s members Freemasons.

프리메이슨은 항상 남성을위한 조직되었으며 이것은 프리메이슨 성격의 기본입니다. 여성을 인정하고 여성과 사교를 하면서 프리메이슨이라고 주장하는 단체가 있지만, 그들은 인정받는 프리메이슨이 아닙니다. 남성들만 가입할수 있는 사실은 전 세계 프리메이슨의 공통점입니다. 이스턴 스타 처럼 여성이 가입할수 있는 단체가 있지만, 그들은 정식 프리메이슨은 아닙니다.


The Freemasons can help me get my life going in the right direction.

프리메이슨은 내 인생이 올바른 방향으로 이끌수어 줄수 있다.

Freemasonry is not a twelve step program. It is not a mechanism to elevate you socially, professionally or economically. In many areas the motto is “Making good men better” not “Fixing screw-ups”.

프리메이슨은 12 단계 프로그램이 아닙니다. 프리메이슨은 전문적으로 또는 경제적, 사회적으로 멤버들을 프로모션하는 메커니즘이 없습니다. 프리메이슨은 더 좋은 성품을 배양하기 힘들지만, 사회적인 문제들을 해결하는 곳이 아닙니다.

I need to be wealthy and powerful to become a Freemason.

나는 프리메이슨이 되기 위해 부자이여야 하며 힘이 있어야합니다.

The fraternity does not judge men based on wealth, power, color or creed. However you should have a trade, take pride in it and perform to the best of your ability. We are not elitists nor do we gain any monetary value from joining. We are a lot more like the Lions Club and the Rotary Club:

프리메이슨은 부, 스펙, 인종 또는 신념에 따라 사람을 판단하지 않습니다. 그러나 당신은 프리메이슨임에 자부심을 가지고 최선을 다해 그 원칙을 수행해야합니다. 프리메이슨은 엘리트주의가 아니며 금전적인 이득을 얻을수 있는 기회는 없습니다. 프리메이슨은 라이온스 클럽이나 로타리 클럽과 유사한면이 많습니다:


I can just write a cheque and become a Freemason.

난 그냥 수표를 던져주고 프리메이슨이 될 수있다.

If you think you can do this or believe you have already done so, we are sorry to inform you that you have likely been a victim of fraud.

당신이 이렇게 생각한다면, 우리는 당신이 사기를 당한것이라고 생각합니다.

Becoming a Freemason will help my military career and get me perks.

프리메이슨은 내 군사 경력에 도움을 주며 내게 특권을 얻게 해줄 것이다.

Sure, if you lived in the eighteenth century you would have had a pretty good ride in the military as a Freemason. Not now though and definitely not in today’s military. These days you will more likely be held to an even higher standard as becoming a Freemason does not entitle you to special privileges but it does require you to set an example of excellence for others to follow.

18 세기에 살았다면 가능할까 지금은 확실히 아닙니다. 프리메이슨이라고 해서 그 어떠한 특별 권한이 자격이 주어 지지는 않습니다. 하지만 당신이 프리메이슨으로서 모범을 세울것을 권장합니다.

The Freemasons want to create a new world order and one world government.

프리메이슨은 신세계 질서와 세계 정부를 만들려고 합니다.

This is an old one that will probably never go away. It’s rather absurd from a logical, organizational, practical and just about every other standpoint. Freemasons mostly plan barbeques, often with great difficulty. One of the rules of Freemasonry is that as an organization we take no stance on politics or religion. It doesn’t make sense that we would create a world government if we are not political.

항상 있던 루머이지만 말도 안됩니다. 프리메이슨이 꾸미는 음모는 바베큐 파티 정도입니다. 프리메이슨 규칙 중 하나는 우리가 정치 나 종교에 아무런 입장을 지지하지 않는다는 것입니다. 우리는 정치적인 조직이 아니며 따라서 우리는 세계 정부를 만들지 않습니다.

Freemasons worship the devil.

프리메이슨은 악마를 숭배 해요.

In the 19th century a man named Leo Taxil wrote a fictional book about devil worshiping Freemasons as a hoax. It was a false accusation then and it is just as false now. This ignorance lives on even today. The mere notion that Freemasons are satanists is ridiculous. A real satanist would be offended by that idea. One of the cardinal teachings of satanism is to place oneself above all others. Of course this is incompatible with Freemasonry as we practice brotherly love, relief, charity and service to others.

19 세기에 레오 텍실(Leo Taxil) 이라는 사람이 장난으로 프리메이슨은 악마 숭배집단이라는 책을 썼습니다. 그것은 잘못된 사실입니다. 이러한 음모는 계속되고 있는데, 프리메이슨이 사탄 주의자들이라는것은 단순한 생각은 바보 생각입니다. 프리메이슨은 박애, 구제, 자선을 실천하며 악마주의와 프리메이슨은 호환되지 않습니다.


The Freemasons is a networking organization.

프리메이슨은 네트워크적인 조직입니다.

The fraternity is definitely not a networking organization. Every once in a while a guy slips in that thinks otherwise and he is usually extremely disappointed. The lodge is not for exchanging business cards and you are not likely to benefit from it in that regard. If you are thinking of joining for that reason, save yourself and everyone else a whole lot of wasted time.

프리메이슨은 확실히 네트워크적인 조직이 아닙니다. 가끔씩 그런 생각을 가진 사람들은 현실을 알면 실망할수 있습니다. 프리메이슨은 인맥을 위한 조직이 아니며 그 점에 관해서 어떠한 혜택을 입을 가능성이 없습니다. 그 이유로 가입을 생각하는 경우, 가입은 시간 낭비일 뿐입니다.

“The Craft” is a pagan, witchcraft or Wiccan reference.

프리메이슨은 이교도, 마법조직 우상숭배 조직입니다.

Commonly accepted definitions of the word “craft” are centric to “skill in planning, making or executing”, “occupation or trade requiring skill” or “members of a trade, guild or association”. “Craft Masonry” is also the more universal term for “Blue Lodge Masonry” simply referring to the first three degrees of Entered Apprentice, Fellow-craft and Master Mason.

프리메이슨은 그런한 조직이 아닙니다. 프리메이슨에는 어프렌티스, 크레프트, 마스터메이슨 같은 단계가 있으며 그것은 마법이나 그 어떠한 우상숭배와도 관련이 없습니다.

Freemasonry is a cult.

프리메이슨은 컬트입니다.

Cults use psychological coercion to recruit. The Freemasons do not recruit in any capacity nor do they use psychological coercion. A cult leader is self-appointed, dogmatic, messianic and not accountable. Masonic leadership is member elected and held to strict regulations. Cults do not benefit society. Freemasonry is an institution intentionally designed to benefit society.

사이비 종교 단체는 심리적으로 사람들을 교묘하게 이용합니다. 프리메이슨은 심리적으로 사람을 이용하지 아니하며 그런 능력도 없습니다. 사이비 리더는 자신이 신이라고 믿으며 사기를 치는데 프리메이슨 리더는 투표로 결정되며 항상 감시됩니다. 사이비 종교 단체는 사회에 도움이되지 않습니다. 프리메이슨에 의도적으로 사회에게 이익이 될 수 있도록 설계 기관입니다.

Initiates are hazed and abused

가입절차는 고통스럽고 가학적이다.

Any form of hazing is absolutely forbidden in all recognized masonic jurisdictions. Brethren engaged in this type of behavior are typically expelled.

가입자를 가해하는 행의는 절대적으로 모든 프리메이슨에 금지되어 있습니다. 이런 행동을 하는 형제는 프리메이슨에서 일방적으로 퇴장당할수 있습니다.




We try to teach good men how to be better men through brotherly love, relief, charity and service to others. We teach these things through mysterious symbols and rituals that are hundreds of years old. We always have guests at every meeting who are interested in learning more about us and who help us in supporting local charities as well.

우리는 다른 사람들에게 박애, 구제, 자선을 통해 더 나은 사람을 만드려 노력합니다. 프리메이슨은 수백 년된 신비 상징과 의식을 통해이 이 일을 가르칩니다. 우리는 항상 우리에 대해 더 배우고 자에게 열려있으며 지역 자선 단체를 지원하는에 힘쓰고 있습니다.

The idea that we don’t talk about religion or politics in lodge assembled allows us to have perfect harmony as a universal brotherhood under the fatherhood of God. Everyone is entitled to their own beliefs and opinions. We could never force anyone to believe anything that they don’t want to. That is the reason Freemasonry has stood the test of time – because we draw our members from every race and every creed – Koreans included.

우리가 종교 또는 정치에 대해 얘기하지 않는 것은 우리가 하나님의 아래에 격없이 하나된 형제이기 때문입니다. 모든 사람은 자신의 신념과 의견을 가질수 있습니다. 우리는 사람들에게 아무 것도 강요 할 수 없습니다. 이것이 프리메이슨이 오랜 세월을 살아남은 이유입니다. 우리는 모든 믿음과 인종을 포용합니다. 물론 한국인도 포함입니다.

Freemasonry has been persecuted for years, and will continue to be for years to come. It’s a shame but something we have all come to accept. The conspiracy theorists say that we are only helping ourselves when the true purpose of our organization is to help others.

프리메이슨은 때때로 금지 되고 박해를 받았습니다. 음모론자들은 우리가 이기적인 조직이라고 하지만 우리의 목적은 다른 사람들을 돕는 것입니다.

I have always been objective in my writings and will continue to do so as it is my obligation as a Freemason to be honest and truthful. I will let the Korean people decide for themselves how they feel about Freemasonry.

나는 객관적이고 솔직하게 프리메이슨에 대하여 적었습니다. 하지만, 이 모든것을 받아들이는 것은 한국 사람들이 여러분이 스스로 결정하셔야 합니다.

      Is there any way to join Freemason in cyberspace? or Am i have to visit the hanyang Lodge? Could you give me information to join this club?
      I’ll wait your answer. Thank you.

    2. umm.. the link can’t be opened.
      Anyway, now i know if i wanna Freemason then i meet them in person.
      And i was already accessed ‘lodgeHanyang’ site, i wrote them message.
      But, they didn’t answer me. So what am i to do?

    3. i am a 16 years Korean,thank you for the information about Freemason….i wanna join Freemason when i rich 21 years old.and i can speak 3 languages English,Korean,and Tagalog(Philippine language).
      i hope you would help me,and i wanna join illuminati too

      1. That’s great that you want to join at such an early age, but you should know that we are not Illuminati.

      1. Well sir for the next year and a half I will be in Dongducheon South Korea.

      2. Then I suggest that you contact one of the lodges in Seoul and they’ll try and hook you up.

      1. you are welcome to reach out to Lodge Hanyang or MacArthur in Seoul or to Lodge Pusan or Harry S. Truman in Pyungteck. happy travels.

  1. I’m glad to find this page and appreciate your article.
    I wanted to know how to join the club.
    I have lived in Korea, but I can speak English well.
    Please help me to be a member.

      1. Ok then, come to our next meeting. Do you know where the Seoul Club is?

      2. Oh you know what? It’s close to Busan. You should join that lodge. Do you want their information?

  2. I read your message. I want to join FreeMason. I live in Gimhae that is near Busan. May I give some information and Busan lodges’s address for my e mail?

    1. Yes please! Send your information using the “Contact” form and I will forward it to the lodge in Busan.

  3. Having looked through this website I am interested in learning more from those who are already members. The nearest lodge to me is in Busan. I would appreciate it if you could provide contact details and future meeting schedules.

  4. 한국 연예인 영상이나 음악, 나폴레옹의 손의 표식, 루스벨트 대통령이 만든 1달러,레이디가가를 보면 프리메이슨의 표식을 나타내고 있습니다
    한국 유명 연예인 사장들이 프리메이슨에 가입해 있나요?
    만약 그게 사실이라면 왜 유명 인사들이 프리메이슨의 표식을 나타내려고 하나요?

    1. As far as I know there has never been a Korean president that was a mason. I think once the emperor’s son was one though.

  5. 기독교인들이 프리메이슨은 사탄숭배자이며 큰조직이라는데 사실입니까?

    Christians say that Freemasonary worships the Satan, is that true?

    1. No, it is not true. If someone who isn’t a Christian went into a church and saw people taking communion eating the “body of christ” and drinking the “blood of christ”, they would probably think it was very strange without understanding the context of it. The same applies for Freemasonry.

    1. There currently aren’t any readily accessible lodges in Daegu. There is a lodge in Busan that meets once a month on Saturdays. I would suggest contacting them. Check out the “Lodges” page for more information.

    1. Actually in many parts of the world women can become Freemasons. Just not in Korea. However, I wouldn’t be surprised if one day a women’s Freemason group or even a co-ed group surfaced here.

    1. Yes, I’ve seen this site many times. Actually I’m glad it points here because lots of Koreans visit this page!

  6. 저는 부산에 거주하고 있으며,,,,프리메이슨 가입을 93년[고3]때 부터,,,원하던 사람입니다,,

    가입이 된다면,,,,BUSAN LODGE에서 활동코자 하는데,,,,,사실 저는 [영어까막눈]입니다,,,

    영어를 못하는 사람도 프리메이슨에 가입이 됩니까?…..

    1. Unfortunately, all of the lodges in Korea conduct all of their business in English only. This is something we all would like to see change, but it will take a long time. Please keep visiting this site to keep track of updates regarding this situation.

  7. 안녕하십니까.
    프리메이슨에 관심을 가지고있으며
    1.프리메이슨에 가입시 어떠한 의미가 있는것인지
    2.프리메이슨 가입은 어떠한 방식으로 이루어지는지(ps. 가입비용 etc.)
    3.가입후 탈퇴의사는 자유이며 불이익이 없는것인지

    영어를 좋아하고 전반적인 해석이 가능하지만
    실력이 부족하여 완벽한 이해를 못하였습니다.
    번거로우시겠지만 제 e-mail로 답변주시면 감사드리겠습니다.

    1. Hello there,

      1. Once you get your 3rd Degree, you are a Master Mason and can take an office and vote on lodge proceedings. Anything higher than the 3rd Degree is appendant and requires you to join other organizations. However, this is not expected nor is it necessary. The higher degrees are for educational purposes if you would like to gain more knowledge.

      2. There is usually an application process involved where you come out and meet masons and get to know them. You need to find a mason who will propose you and sign your application. Then there is usually an interview process. The lodge votes on whether or not to make you a Freemason and then there is finally your initiation. On the day of your initiation you are expected to pay some money. How much money depends on the lodge, as different lodges can ask for different amounts of money.

      3. After becoming a Master Mason you are expected to pay a yearly subscription fee. Again, the amount depends on the lodge. You can resign your membership at any time.

      Thanks for the questions!

  8. 수고하십니다 한가지 질문이있습니다 답변해주시면 감사하겠습니다

    프리메이슨은 성경책을 자신들의 의식도구로 사용하는데
    성경책은 가톨릭성경(73)권을 사용하는지 아니면
    개신교(66)권을 사용하는지 궁금합니다

    1. Depends on the brother really. If he’s a Christian we use the bible. If he’s Jewish, the Torah. Korans for Muslims, Teachings of Buddha for Buddhists, etc.

      1. 답변 감사드립니다. 그렇다면 어떤 프리메이슨은 자신은 종교가 없지만 신만믿는다 그러면 의식치를때 경전이 필요할텐데 경전없이 빈손으로 의식을해도 되는지 궁금합니다.

      2. 프리메이슨의 상징중에서 피라미드위에 떠있는 삼각형 (all seeing eye)은 삼위일체를 의미하는건데 이것은 기독교의 신을 의미하는것이 아닌가요? 아니면 모든종교를 통틀어서 신은 3위격이다라는 의미인가요

      3. As Freemasons, we require candidates to express belief in God, but we also require vows of fidelity. It’s kind of like people swearing on the bible in court. We want to make sure they keep their promise.

        The number 3 is very prevalent in many religions. We usually say that God has a “triune essence”, and although this can mean the holy trinity for Christians, it could mean the Trimurti or Tridevi for Hindus, the Three Jewels for Buddhists, the Three Pure Ones for Taoists, etc.

      4. 체스는 프리메이슨들의 비밀스러운 상징이라고 하는것을 어떠한 글에서 봤습니다.
        이글에서 체스는 우주를 축소한듯한 미묘한 게임이라고 합니다.
        실제로 체스게임을 할수록 자유의지, 우주질서를 깨닫는데 많은 도움이되는지 프리메이슨들은 한번씩 재미로라도 체스게임을하고있는지 궁금합니다. 🙂

        프리메이슨들만의 Ode가 있다고 들었습니다. 의식을 시작할떄 끝날때나 의식도중에 회원들끼리 서로 노래를 부르는것을 보았습니다. 그런데 저는 이상하게 노래에서 뭔가 인위적인 느낌이 든다고 느꼈습니다. 혹시 프리메이슨은 멜로디 리듬등을 포함해서 음악에도 비밀스러운 상징을 넣나요?
        몇몇 프리메이슨 회원은 실제 대중음악에도 메이슨의 상징이 들어가있는 멜로디나 리듬 voice등을 미묘하게 첨가하는지 궁금합니다.

      5. Masons usually have odes that they sing in lodge. Honestly though, the lodges in Korea don’t really adopt that practice unless the delegation from Hong Kong comes and performs our installation ceremonies for us. I guess it’s more of a British thing. When I joined Lodge Han Yang the master at that time always sang odes during the ceremonies, but nobody really continued doing that after he left.

        As for pop music? That’s just more conspiracy stuff. Don’t worry about it. 🙂 I think the only really good example of somebody putting masonic symbolism into their music would be Mozart’s “The Magic Flute”.

  9. 공식사이트에 올라온 프리메이슨만의 의식이나 도구 행동들 말고도 외부에 알려줄수없는것들도 있는지 아니면 공식사이트에 올라온것들이 프리메이슨 의식의 전부인지 궁금합니다.

    1. You can find any of the rituals online. There’s no real secrets anymore. We just don’t say those secrets out loud to non-masons as a sign of trust towards our brothers.

  10. 프리메이슨들끼리는 대부분 영어를 사용한다고 들었습니다 유튜브를 검색해보니 일부 롯지는 프랑스어도 사용하는것을 보았습니다 그래서 궁금한데 혹시 영어를 쓰는것이 프리메이슨끼리 어떤숨겨진 의미가있는건지 아니면 그냥 영어를 쓰는게 편하기때문에 그렇게 하는건지 궁금합니다. 그리고 현재 영어 프랑스어말고도 다른언어로 의식을 치르는 롯지가 있는지도 궁금합니다

    1. There’s lots of rituals in many different languages. We even have it in Korean, actually. But Freemasonry is not popular enough with Koreans to have a Korean speaking lodge.. yet.

      1. 프리메이슨은 비밀을 엄수한다고 들었는데 현대에와서 사진이나 동영상을 사이트에 올리고 홍보도하면서 존재를 알리는 이유가 무엇인가요 프리메이슨에대해 적대적인 세력이 없어졌기때문인가요?

      2. You know, a long time ago Masons were very secretive for a couple of reasons:

        1. We believe in tolerance of other beliefs. The church did not like that.
        2. We believe in equality. The government did not like that.

        Now society has evolved to the point where equality and tolerance are very normal things, so the Freemasons don’t need to be so secretive anymore. However, in some communist countries and religious states the Freemasons are still persecuted because of the reasons listed above.

  11. Hello I am 17 years old high school student living in Singapore. I am Korean and I’m here to study. Since I was young, I had many spiritual experiences and thoughts. I read various spiritual articles and stories to fulfil my heart’s desire to exit my life’s cycle.(going to school, having meal three times a day, hangout with friends during weekends and go back to school again…) I knew Freemason since 2012 by the internet articles. As many people say the articles were talking about Freemason’s rumor such as satanic rituals. I don’t know if it is real or not but I want to say that ‘I am always to KNOW , ACCEPT AND UNDERSTAND the reality’.
    I’ve been to Singapore’s Freemason lodge. I just get in and ask an officer that I am here to join Freemason and I knew that I’m not a proper person to join Freemason because I’m not an adult yet and I can’t pay for the fees.
    I will enroll the university in Seoul and I want to join Han-Yang lodge as soon as possible. Now, I’m still a high school student but I really want to receive some informations about Han-Yang lodge and Freemason. Thank you for reading 🙂

    1. I have forwarded your request to Lodge Han Yang’s secretary. If you don’t hear back within a month, please let me know.

  12. Hi, I have been notice about freemasonry last year ago. l had many researched masonry
    before. There I learned many masonry rituals, square and compass meaning(real mean), rough ashlar and perfect ashlar ancillary gnosism, kaballah, hermeticism and etc.
    I know really freemasonry is definitely not worshipping evil. This rumors made by imprudent netizen.
    I know freemasonry is not have prejudice about wealth, social power, race but do the brotherhood of man and charity to local country. netizen cannot know about it.
    I’m 20 years old man(not korean age)korean age is 22. I know not enough my age, but after my birthday i’m 21 in this year.
    I wish learn more about masonry to join in the busan lodge.
    but i’m not enough age yet. therefore, shall I attend qualification of auditor?

    1. You sound like you understand it pretty well so far! When you turn 21 please use the “Contact” section and I will do my best to help you join the Busan Lodge. Please wait up to a month for a reply as I can get really busy at times.

  13. I am a member of Scottish rite in the US and also an international student in college. I am willing to become a 33rd degree mason that can be only provided through Scottish rite. I would like to know about your lodge and amount of due. I am actually visiting south Korea this summer. I believe you are a member of Hanyang lodge right?

  14. Please note that the vocabulary used inappropriate to use a translator. I know that through the web, Freemason is leading the Enlightenment as a secret society in history hundreds of years. And I know that it has led to such a significant event in the French Revolution or the American Revolution. Is it true?

    1. I had a Korean mason do the translating. I’m not sure about the French revolution, but the American revolution was during the enlightenment period, when the majority of leaders were deists. I’m sure Freemasonry had a little influence but let’s not get carried away into believing they are the ones who caused it.

    1. I want join. i’m korean. But soon I go to HongKong for work.
      Could you give me the information?
      Now I live busan

  15. Good morning

    I live in Daegu and religion is Buddhism.

    I want to sign up for Masonic.

    I can not speak English fluently and I use a translator to ask questions.

    I know exactly what the membership conditions, subscription fees and membership fees are,

    I wonder I wonder if there is a lot of interaction in the domestic lodge as well as the world lodge.
