Korean Folk Village: Come to the background of Korean historical drama!
  • Have you ever wondered what kind of life the people in the Korean peninsula led before the western culture was introduced? Korean Folk Village is the place where the question is immediately solved. “Joseon Dynasty,” which ruled the region before the birth of the Republic of Korea, had lasted for over half a millennium from 1392 to 1910.

    Korean Folk Village showcases people’s lives in the kingdom that flourished based on Confucianism, leaving numerous cultural legacies. Visitors can taste the foods they ate, join the games they played, participate in activities they did, and watch performances and parades.

  • Visit rich houses where nobles lived, poor houses inhabited by commoners, government offices, medical facility, schools, and education houses. The village is also well-known as a filming of popular Korean movies and drama series, such as Dae Jang Geum (Jewel in the Palace) that was aired in 99 countries, the Netflix original drama Kingdom, and My Love from the Star starring Jeon Ji-hyun and Kim Soo Hyun to name a few.

    Why not search for familiar places featured in the films and dramas and pose just like the actors and actresses did in the scenes? Or rent a hanbok costume and stroll around the old streets as if time-traveling to five centuries ago. Hanboks for varying positions, including kings and queens, are available at the rental place right in front of the entrance (charged hourly). Events with various themes are held as well depending on the season to offer pleasure beyond that of time-traveling.
