  • Neither one thing or the other really. Not sure what their aiming for. The history is without doubt here but the implementation is inconsistent. People actually live here, with all modern conveniences, which is cool but does distract somewhat from the historical views. A traditional house with appropriate roof design and building materials, plus a satellite dish and plastic ice cream sign. They really should choose, you want it to be an attraction, fine, go Disney and theme and hide the ice cream so it's there but with traditional signage. Or, carve out a sizable section where people don't live and get some actors in with period costume as many historical sites do globally. As it is, if your passing, stop for a few quick photos but don't plan your day around here. Not enough to see.
  • It is beautiful, but it doesn't look like a real village, more like an open air museum. One house to the others aren't very close to each other. I went there on a rainy day, still look nice but shoes got all wet and the tickets office was closed maybe it's free because the bad weather or maybe it's always free entrance, I don't know.
  • open-air museum with a few notable historical houses from the past to observe. while i can imagine the abundance of history in this village, i don't really appreciate the entry fee that's charged for this place, since it doesn't particularly look like the money is being used to maintain the landmarks.
  • Had a lovely visit here to see the traditional Korean buildings and life. You could wander around at will and they marked out 4 prominent buildings to see, though most you could only see the front. Unfortunately not many villagers around and most of the local shops were closed when we visited.
  • When touring with family, it is an excellent place.
