  • Multiple traditional homes were moved here to make this village. Beautiful to see, and educational as well. Activities for kids make it a great family experience.
  • The place was not that crowded. There's literally almost no one while we were there around 5pm w/c is really good since it's level 4 on social distancing at the moment. Great place! I enjoyed looking around the Hanok Village. There were interesting things preserved in every hanok that were used during the ancient years.
  • Excellent Taekwondo demonstration - the reason for my visit. Interesting to see how people lived in the past. Nice water features throughout which helped with walking around on a hot day.
  • A very attractive area of yesteryear with lots of history, look at those houses and they are all lived-in! While walking along, there are art galleries, historic sites, snack bars, restaurants, and who would not like to dress up to ware traditional clothes for a day?
  • One of Seoul's hidden secrets. A great place to see some Korean history and culture. Small but interesting.
