I've nearly seen all shows there - they were all very entertaining. Place is well preserved (or made). It makes you feel old Korea from head to toe.

This outdoor village was good way to learn history of Korea and how the lifestyle has evolved. Great contrast to booming city Seoul is today. Nice when temperature was cool but can imagine it would not be comfortable in summer since entirely outdoors

That was just like a jump back in time, completely surreal experience. I spent there 5 hours and would definitely spend a couple of hours more but it was a close time. Plan a full day for this visit.

My review classifies the Korean Folk Village, located in Yongin, a major city of close to one million people and a part of the greater Seoul Metropolitan Area here in South Korea, as a very good attraction. Beauty is always in the eye of the...More
