Nice enough but way too expensive and we used the Korean Grand Sale coupon. 3 hours here us plenty. The performances were pretty good.

Great place to see old Korean Architecture. Different houses are on display which were owned by real people and have been brought here. The English texts and explanations could have been a bit longer.

We went there on a cold day but we dressed warm and made the best of it. The rope walking show was pretty cool. Horse riding show was good too. They have a kids play area as well but it was a bit cold for my daughter to enjoy it. We visited one in Incheon a few years ago but... More

Very interesting look into the past of this country. The exhibits and mock ups are well done, but after seeing the first 3 or 4 places, I started thinking to myself, time to leave, seen it all. On a positive note, the vendors were not pushy or rude to the guest like in some attractions. The food "court" was a... More

Thanks, @Frank M. At first, I want to thank you for reviewing any inconvenience. I will ask to solve that problem with the designated team members in time. Actually we have the traditional performances in some area, but maybe you couldn't see them because of the time gap, I guess. Next time you visit, I hope you to watch them... More

Thanks, @Jennifer O. Private tour is a quite good choice for better tour of Korean Folk Village, I think. With entering here all the visitors can watch the performances in a specific area. That's why they can be satisfied with their choice to visit here. Actually, as you said, we have lots of filming schedule of K-Drama, Entertainment Shows, and... More

TRANSPORTATION: While the place is a little difficult to reach by public transportation, we were lucky enough that the 5500-1 bus driver told us a faster route to get to the village. We were originally going to take the 5500-1 bus from Jonggak station to the village, but apparently that takes 2 hours, so instead we took the 5000 bus... More

A leisurely way to spend your day if you have spare time on your hands, but not a must-see. It takes about 2 hours to reach the place, from Central Seoul, if one takes public transport.

Nice place that showcases the korean farm houses and the means they build them. The park is spacious so you won't feel congested even when there are many people in the park. They also have an eating area where we had our lunch, after which we went to watch the Korean cultural shows.

The Korean Folk Village is a nice opportunity to see and experience many Korean folk culture and traditions in one place. It also has a mini amusement park for the families with younger children to have a great time. The place is visited by a lot of locals and many of them loved to help us experience their culture when... More
