  • Information
    Introduction
    Jeonju Hanok Village is located in the city of Jeonju and overlaps Pungnam-dong and Gyo-dong. There are 735 traditional Korean hanok houses. While the rest of city has been industrialized, Hanok Village retains its historical charms and traditions.

    The charm of Jeonju Hanok Village lies in the hanok buildings' unique roof edges, which are slightly raised to the sky. Hanok houses are generally divided into two sections, anchae and sarangchae. Sarangchae is where the men dwell. Because men and women had to remain separated, anchae is situated deep inside the house so that it is secretive and quiet.

    Another trait of hanok is that all the houses are heated with ondol, a unique floor heating system. Since Koreans enjoy sitting, eating, and sleeping on the floor, it needs to remain heated. To experience what hanok is like, visitors can either book a hanok accommodation or visit the Hanok Life Experience Hall.
