Nobleman’s Mansion: Be a guest at a traditional wedding in the grand house
  • It is a mansion of a “yangban (nobleman),” who has the greatest power and wealth. Several buildings are spread on a wide ground, but they have no more than a total of 99 kans (one kan refers to the distance between pillars) as the royal palace alone can have more than 100 kans. The residence consists of anchae (main building) for women, sarangchae (detached building) for men, haengrangchae (servants' quarters), and many rooms for guests with architectures and gardens unique to each space.

    The 99-kan mansion was built in Suwon in 1861 but rebuilt in KFV, keeping the original form. There are areas divided by exits, made up of gardens and architects in different styles. Be an Alice in Wonderland and explore all the way to the deepest end of the villa.

  • In Korea, weddings used to take place in the front yard of a nobleman’s house. To demonstrate the event, traditional weddings are held twice a day at the site. The groom and the bride arrive at the groom’s house on a horse and in a palanquin, respectively, and join the ceremony. Visitors can participate in it as a guest or sign up in advance and become the groom and bride themselves (KRW 80,000 for two).
