Korean Folk Village, Seoul
Great place filled with Korean culture and tradition! Here's a glimpse if you want to see what to expect or want to reminisce about your trip there in the past!
This is the other performance that I saw at the Korean Folk Village. It is one of the famous traditional Korean game.
The performers made many impressive stunt and jumps which were vastly entertaining.
At this replica of a traditional Korean village you will see aspects of everyday village life that are uniquely Korean, including traditional houses typical of local provinces, a government office, market, a water-mill, and a pottery shop that offer glimpses of the cultural heritage and traditional lifestyles of the past.
This is an authentic re-creation (as far as I could tell) of a traditional Korean village. Here is life as it was in Korea, prior to industrialization.
The paper is made by boiling mulberry bark, mixing
it with dakpul sap (grass sap) and letting it dry after
stirring the mixture in a pail.
A most facinating a colourful performance!
I witnessed the performers playing musical instruments and dancing to the beat in a circular motion.
This is a MUST SEE if you visited the folk village
Traditionally, Kimchi are made by placing cabbages and the spices into an earthen pot. The pots are then sealed and buried underground for the winter.
Young students were brought by their teachers on this learning excursion to experience the village which feature traditional furniture & products.
MAIN OFFICE: The local administrative chief had jurisdiction over not only administrative affairs but also over judicial matters.
Flanked by lagre ondol (heated from below) rooms, the main floor (taechong) served as the main office space for the magistrate.
You will get a view into rural life as it used to be and if you're lucky (it happens frequently) you can witness a traditional wedding ceremony, and they do in fact marry.
