Korean Folk Village

Live the History, Experience the Tradition

Since its foundation in 1975, the Korean Folk Village has become a mecca of Korean traditional culture. Korean Folk Village was established by relocating and reconstructing authentic traditional homes from all over the country into a single village to maintain the spirit and tradition of Joseon-era Korea. Based on careful historical research, the "local villagers" organize fun seasonal festivals, arts and crafts workshops, special events, and contests.   Considering the painstaking work put into making the Korean Folk Village as authentic as possible, it should come as no surprise that it has become a major filming location for numerous historical dramas. The village has undoubtedly contributed to the success of such hit dramas as "Moon Embracing The Sun", "Sungkyunkwan Scandal", "Masquerade", "Face Reader", "My Love From the Star", and classics such as "Tears of Dragon" and "A Jewel in the Palace". But this is just a small portion of all the dramas, films, and TV programs that have been shot in the village. In fact, it is not uncommon to see an actual film shoot while visiting the village.   Besides its gorgeous scenery and wonderful traditional buildings, the Korean Folk Village also hosts all sorts of entertaining activities and performances. The area is divided into a museum zone, a performance zone, a workshop zone, and the most exciting of all - a themed attraction zone! Here you can learn pottery, try on traditional hanbok, cheer for rope-walking and fire-breathing acrobats, experience some medieval punishment tools, listen to enchanting music, or get spooked in the horrifying Joseon Haunted House!
