Ahn Hae-pyo, the owner of Hwahyejang, has a clear line of succession genealogy, which has been a family business since his grandfather at the end of the Joseon Dynasty. In other words, in the 1880s, his grandfather produced Heukhye, the shoes of the godfather and officials, and his father took over the family business and made the traditional shoes for a lifetime. Ahn Hae-pyo started to receive the functions of making telegraphy from his father in 1962 when he was 12 years old, and has continued his family business in earnest since 1969.

It also inherits or stores tools such as 1920s' traditional painting capital, new copy, base copy, sand dune complex, wood hammer, shingol, awl and needle, window croaker, ruler, etc. used by grandfather and father, <span class='xml2' onmouseover='up2(6371)'onmouseout=\\\木靴/span>, <span class='xml2' onmouseover='up2(5705)' onmouseout='dn2()'dn2()'dn2(()태/span혜, <span class='xml2' onmouse='

Ahn Hae-pyo, the owner of Hwahyejang, has a strong craftsmanship that has been walking on a lonely path for the rest of his life, solely by making hwahye production, despite the difficult environment of today's industrialized society, and its function is excellent. Moreover, it is worth noting that all the successors, including wives and two sons, are made up of family members, and their functions are excellent as well as their concerted efforts to inherit the Hwahye production function.

Therefore, Ahn Hae-pyo needs to be designated and preserved as an intangible cultural asset for the transmission, preservation, and activation of traditional shoe manufacturing functions, as well as faithfully following the traditional production methods of Hwahyejang, and having its own unique production methods.
