    Korean Folk VIllage

    by RoseAmano Written May 29, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    About one hour away by tube from Seoul is Suweon, a rather traditional suburb. By shuttle bus, the Korean Folk Village is reached. The village is a recreation of ancient building styles, ranging from temples to common folks' home. The photo attached here is a mock performance of a traditional Korean Wedding.

  • The big black Catholic church.

    You will see the church if you walk the wall. I never had a chance to go right up close to it. It was stunning. I Don't think most of the churches in Europe are as big as this.
