My take is this is a better bet for seeing Hanoks because Bukchon is a upperclass residential district set on a hill (people still live there, so you can't just walk in!) In Namsangol, it is a reconstructed village (mostly of old houses that were...More

Pretty empty in my opinion. Not much going on. Just drab and unexciting. Not really worth your time checking it out. Free entry. Metro exit 3

This village is good for seeing historical Korean buildings. It offers free 40 minute tours in a range of languages (Chinese, English, Korean and Japanese). Check before you go what days and times have your language.

My friends and I stopped by this place on our way down from Seoul tower. Tranquil surroundings, but without activities or sufficient signboards in languages other than Korean, it is just a location with traditional houses
