Absorb the preserved history of the country's traditional music and dance culture at National Gugak Center. The center was built in 1950 and now stands as one of four such facilities across the country, thanks to a growing demand for classes, and steadily increasing attendance. The word "Gugak" is an umbrella-term, covering all types of antiquated Korean music, and as a visitor, you'll have the opportunity to take in an informative introduction to the subject through varied song and dance performances, held every Saturday at around 3 pm. Consult the center's website for weekly listings. Work out when and for how long to visit National Gugak Center and other Seoul attractions using our handy Seoul vacation generator.
