    Introduction
    Set in a natural environment occupying approximately 243 acres, visitors can experience the natural atmosphere with over 260 traditional houses reminiscent of the late Joseon Dynasty, including various household goods from different regions. All these features have been relocated and restored to provide visitors with a broad understanding of Korean food, clothing, and housing style of the past.

    About twenty workshops, various handicrafts such as pottery, baskets, winnows, bamboo wares, wooden wares, paper, brass wares, knots, fans, musical instruments, iron wares and embroidery are practiced. In the Korean Folk Village, where the customs and lifestyles of the past generations have been carefully preserved, various lifestyles prevalent during the Joseon Dynasty can be seen. A specail event called 'Welcome to the Joseon' will allow visitors to time travel to the period and is to be held each year in May.
    The entertainment facilities includes a big family park themed with valcano expolosion caves, the only one volcano park in Korea as well as Folk Traditional Market where visitors can enjoy korean traditional food such as rice cakes and alcoholic drinks.

    You can visit the Folk Museum as well as the Art Museum (scheduled to open) to see and learn about the essence of Korean culture and folk customs, which are not suitable for display and re-creating in the open-air setting.
    Korean Folk Village is also the filming location for the famous Korean dramas including 'My Love from the Star', 'Moon Embracing the Sun', 'Sungkyunkwan Scandal' and 'Daejanggeum'.
