  • Elementary kids and I had a good time here. A lot to see and do. We went on a weekday morning and the place was pretty empty which was nice. Mid-day parade with music and dances was nice. They have some small scale amusement park rides, too. I took away a star because we paid for a smelt experience but there obviously weren't any smelt in the pond. No one out of a dozen groups of people had seen any smelt that day for an hour we were there. I had to leave by 3:30pm so I actually didn't have time to see a lot. Plan it to be a whole day trip or even 2. They have lots of events and performances spread out through the day. I wish there was someone who helps plan the day. I also could have used some sort of guide throughout the park.
  • I loved this place. I went on a Wednesday and it was almost empty, making the atmosphere so peaceful. It really felt like being back in the olden days. I can imagine it wouldn't be quite so charming if I'd gone on a weekend or public holiday... The performers were wonderful. The girls danced beautifully and you can tell the guys are all friends and have fun egging each other on during the performances. My only dislike was that there is a cow tied up in a small stall. Cows are social creatures and need to be in a herd, with pastures to graze on. She didn't have any food (other than a small amount of hay on the floor that had been soiled) or water, and was just tied up in there, in her own muck. She looked extremely forlorn and her presence is completely unnecessary.
  • You can have an experience of Korean culture plus you can enjoy traditional shows. It is quite awesome.
  • You need a full day or more to enjoy this fantastic place. Surrounded by city, yet you feel like you're in the countryside. Don a hanbok and wander around. The performances are very well done and so enjoyable. I do wish the activities and show times were easier to find/receive information on. It would be great to see the canteen / traditional food area use reusable cups and chopsticks. I wanted to try the rise drink but there is so much plastic, which is a shame. Stainless steel cups and chopsticks I feel are so much apart of the Korean experience. It'd be nice if the village did that too.
  • Such a lovely time spent here! This whole village experience is super precious, you can see the houses built for peasants, commoners, noblemen etc. The information given in each part of the village has english too! The activities and performances are lively and professional! Thoroughly enjoyed myself in the experience as well as the small amusement park!
