Local Government Office: Where the guilty are punished!
  • While walking around KFV, visitors encounter lively characters from the Joseon period: a beggar singing songs, a merchant telling enchanting stories about products, a naming specialist claiming to give an auspicious name.

    Take fun photos with them and follow the directions they provide. Be careful, though, lest you get arrested by traditional police officers and get punished in a local government office!

    How do you think the guilty were punished during the Joseon Dynasty? At the time, the local government office was performing not only administrative works but judicial ones as well. Trials on suspects were carried out in the front yard of the government office; if found guilty, suspects were punished with flogging or other forms of torture.

  • Visitors can sign up for the gonjang experience or the traditional Korean penalty of flogging the buttocks of a person who prostrates on a wooden frame. As the experience program is very popular, however, the queues can be long. And don't forget to make a realistic facial expression in front of the camera!

    Around the office building are a wide playground for traditional games such as tuho (arrow-throwing), yut nori (board game), and traditional rope skipping and an equestrian place to ride a horse like old generals did.
