To see and 'experience' some of the traditional side of Seoul a visit to the Bukchon Hanok Village is a worthwhile thing.

There are several old, traditionally Asian houses, called hanok, which you can enter (not every one of them) to explore its interiors. It is a good way to see how Koreans lived (or still live).

You can also find some museums that could be interesting. If you plan to visit more sights in this area you should spend at least a day (or a half) there.
