  • Nanshan South Korean House village is in the middle of the Myeong-dong station and Chung Wu Road station, free to enter. Inside is a park built along the mountain, you can see the Seoul Tower. There are many traditional buildings. But these traditional Korean houses are mostly copy-and-build, not really a miracle. But I think it's worth visiting.

  • Once you've seen one Hanok Village, you've seen them all. But, if you're going to see only one then this is definitely not a bad once to visit. There is a giant eyesore of a stage in the grounds near the entrance, but it can be forgiven when you consider the other facilities available. The buildings give a nice traditional feeling and allow for some pretty nice photos and selfies. Ditto for the garden and the large pond. For those interested, they offer traditional wedding ceremonies from spring to autumn. Interestingly these marriages seem to mostly international marriage.
  • Fabulous place to take a walk and learn. Old Korean house somehow like I saw in the Korean drama. Nice to see traditional houses are still kept among the modern surrounding. The great thing is the atmosphere. The traditional houses make the visitor as if can look back to the past, the Joseon era. They also try to hold the old games and many more so the visitors can really enjoy the old Korea. Some Korean drama also take this place as the background so for the foreign visitors some of the places seem familiar.
  • It's spring, so many beautiful flowers. Also they put things in the rooms so you know what the room is for. Moreover it's free and close to subway! Must be 5 stars!!
  • Check the traditional Korean village and culture in here. You can explore the village on your own and the entrance is free of charge. There were cherry blossom trees as well and the sight of the N Seoul tower in the back area.
  • Really liked the place, korean-novela-feels as Filipino called it. Full of beautiful traditional Korean houses and their things, its like a mini museum. Worth visiting.
