    Traditional Korean Game

    by emilytyc Written Dec 14, 2004

    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.

    Korean Folk Village

    by sunnywong Written Feb 25, 2003

    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.

    A most facinating a colourful performance!

    I witnessed the performers playing musical instruments and dancing to the beat in a circular motion.

    Visit the Korean Folk Village.

    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.
