This beautiful village is made up of 260 buildings from the Chosun era of the Korean history. The first thing you should know about it is that this is the filming place for the well known Korean dramas, you may be familiar with some of them. You can see people rehearsing in traditional costumes everywhere. Very nice.

The place is a museum, but people actually live in the houses, really! Wear traditional clothes, use the old tools and live in the old way, it's almost unbelievable in a city like Seoul.

You can eat traditional Korean food (and only that), see weddings held there (some are real, some are for the filmings). There are workshops with the traditional crafts everywhere and it's like you are in a different era.

Address:
107 Pora-ri, Kihung-up, Yong-in-shi, Kyonggi-do, Seoul

Opening Hours:
09:00am to 17:00pm, all year.
