The Se Sok O-Gye, or just O-Gye, is the moral code of the hwarang formulated by Buddhist monk Won Gwang consisting of five rules:

  • Loyalty to the country
  • Devotion to one's parents
  • Trust among friends
  • Never retreat in battle
  • Kill only with forethought

The code is still used by many Korean martial artists and can be found in gyms around the world.[citation needed]
