In Sep 2019, Sky went to Seoul to have fun. KKday offered her some optional tours, and this Korean Folk Village is one of a part of the tours. It is already worked for her Japanese original blog.
As of Sep 2020, there are no perfectly same tour with she enjoyed, but seems still there are several tours you can go there. Sadly, seems it is difficult to find out the optional tours what are not only to Korean Foal Village alone, but also optional tours from Seoul.
Seems you can visit there in this optional tour. Seems GwanMyeong Cave is attractive for me.
It was KKday who served, but I found there is an optional tour in KLOOK. For your convenience, I show it to you.
Part of the optional tour, as a lunch place
It is Hwaesong Fortress what is my main purpose to ask KKday to help me to join the tour.
I did not have any information about this Korean Folk Village.
The main purpose of the tour may be “lunch time” and rest time for the guide and the driver. They gave me a coupon to choose my dishes.
The red bottle is Korean spicy seasoning, maybe called Gochujang.
Regularly I eat spicy foods, but as a Japanese tongue, Korean foods are too much. Eating without spicy seasonings, you may enjoy the taste of original ingredients.
White cover is for my rice.
The good thing is you have no need to share dishes with others.
As an Open Air Museum
Korean Folk Village (KFV) is a village from the Joseon period composed of real houses relocated from provinces of the country.
In Korean severe modern history, I did not expect the real houses are kept as original. They may be changed to live, but seems in the Folk Village, it looks like as they were.
There are slightly different styles with”Southern” and “Northern”, probably “Northern” means northern part of “South Korea”, not meaning of North Korean side.
It is a kind of theme park, or shooting park but it should be the best way to keep the building as original style.
The buildings are really interesting to see.
I am not quite sure that whether it is relocated from somewhere or built as a new building.
There were comedy show of marriage.
There are also a fancy park, and a group from Philippines and I tried to take a ride of something train, but we could not. Our tickets are not for the fancy park, and they did not accept cash.
Also, I found there are some locations shot in past. I found a bridge shot in a drama of “100 Days My Prince” (2018) starring Doh Kyung-soo (D.O.) of EXO.
Guess the farmer’s house in the picture above is also shot in that drama, but I don’t know.
Totally to say, it is pretty hard to visit there by myself, as a person who does not read/ speak Korean. Also, it could not be my “destination” of traveling. Indeed it is nice place to visit in those optional tours.
It was KKday who served me on Sep 2019, but I found there is an optional tour in KLOOK. For your convenience, I show it to you.
