  • I truly enjoyed visiting the Folk Village, the only thing that is bothering me is a doubt - a question I have about the life of the little beautiful cow called Happiness in Korean. She seems to spend an extremely confined space. I wonder if the organizers ever thought about her living conditions. I have tried to see if I can contact the place via email, no possibility, and I do not speak Korean to endeavor calling. Hopefully, someone will read this and can ask about the cow's living conditions directly to the Folk Village. Irene E. Koyada
  • This place is more like a theme park than a true village. It is not a historical preserved village if you wonder. There are some shows here but they are mainly not classical Koreans historical things but rather some aerobatics. Many TV dramas where filmed in this village as it represent the classical Koreans living style 100s of years ago.
  • Great place ! Lots of entertainment, cozy surrounding, beatiful landscape and place for good food too. For Muslim, there is a prayer room at the World Folk Museum section. Must visit place if you are in Seoul or South Korea.
  • A rebuilt of a ancient Korean village. It is like a theme park/ museum village. You can walk around the rebuilt "ancient" structures and they show some nice performances like horse riding and dancing or a traditional weeding ceremony. Additionally they have an actual small theme park right next to it. I didn't like the village too much, because it all looked a bit too fake to me. I would recommend the actual refurbished ancient buildings in Seoul more.
  • A place to visit. Many funs and great outing.
