Yangban(the noble) is highest status could be achieved by passing a series of national exams which is the only way to become a government official in Chosun Dynasty. They are high social status but not always of high income. Most of Yangban were mainly interested in study not making money and mainly affected by Confucianism. They are so into honor and Confucian manner and culture which was always prior to practicality. They did care more about books than money, food, and other basic life.

Bukchon was the area with full ofthe nobles (Bukchon traditional Korean house village is included to Cosmojin Seoul daily city tour course number 3) while Namchon is the place for a little lower class including ruined noblemen or scholars who did not pass enough series of national exams to become a real Noble or government official. Namchon is located at the foot of Mt. Namsan. There were ideologists who was just studying with doing nothing else was called ""namsangol nerd"" while respected scholars called ""Sonbi"" lived there too.
