Good place to go. The entrance fee is 20KRW person. I with my friends came here and explore by ourselves. But we get lost because the direction show on the map which we took a picture at the entrance gate, but it is so mess up, we can not find the way and we missed all shows there. So take the papper map for sure.

A theme park where you can experience the traditional Korean culture. The music and dancing shows and traditional Korean wedding ceremony are enjoyable. There is an amusement park. I love the slow pace here. Overall, it is fascinating!

Had the privilege to cost the Korean Folks Village and witness how the Joseon live during their dynasty. They are simply amazing and amusing. Truly blessed to understand how they live and the older days. The Korean Folk Village located on a large 245 acres of land with backdrop of mountains and a river running through it. Korean Folk Village introduces traditional culture from the late Joseon period to both local and international visitors through cultural classes experience, shaman faith, seasonal customs and others. The Korean Folk Village has been a popular film site for many well-known historical dramas including My Love from the Star (2013), Moon Embracing the Sun (2012), Dong Yi (2010), Sungkyunkwan Scandal (2010), The Great Queen Seondeok (2009) and of course, the hugely popular Dae Jang Geum (2003).

We went to Korea Folk Village on Christmas to avoid the massive crowds in Seoul City. It offers a nice getaway from the hustle and bustle for those who are keen to catch a glimpse of living conditions during the Joseon Dynasty. The pace was slow within the attraction and felt rather authentic. While the kids got restless after a while, they were entertained by the adjoining amusement park whose queues were much shorter than those of Lotte World. We could cover almost all of the rides in half a day. The amusement park also offers affordable food options. Overall while the Village did not present excitement of Seoul City, it offers a good balance to both the young and the old.

Went to the Folk Village today (November 2019) - the place itself is nice (the Joseon style houses were well kept and interesting) BUT off season meant that every single workshop was closed (I.e. any interactive element of the village), construction and maintenance meant many things were fenced off (including all of the food court seating!) and the “entertainment zone” rides were all at an extra cost despite paying 20k won entry per person. There was basically nothing to do and the entire place felt like a ghost town; we were done within an hour. Felt like a big waste of time. I’m sure it would be nice in peak season but they should either close the park in off season or offer a discount cost if they are going to remove most of the entertainment for remaining visitors. Very underwhelming.
