I visited the Korean Folk Village in the Gyeonggi Province on December 2010, I realized I never really posted about it so, this was a good time to do it.
Here's some of the History of the Village:
About 30 folk villages were relocated and recreated in the approximately 200,000 pyeong (660,000 square meters) vacant land around the area of 107 Bora-ri, Giheung-eup, Yongin City, Gyeonggi Province on August 5, 1973 and opened to the public after completion on October 3, 1974.
The Korean Folk Village isopen all year-round and nearly 1.8 million domestic and foreign tourists visit here throughout the year. The Folk Village is a venue where visitors can learn Korean culture in a short time.
All year round there are Folk Performances performed twice a day like
-Fasmer's Music and Dance
-Acrobatics on a tightrope
And a traditional wedding (Mar-Nov)
(This might be canceled due to weather)
Adults: 15,000 Won
Adolescents/Seniors 12,000 Won
Chil 10,000 Won
For more info visite the KFV website here.
But why don't I show you more about it with pictures? (I sure love pictures!!)
|After the Music/Dance performance|
|You have to write a "wish" in those papers and make a knot to put it there|
|I took this picture because my mom is a huge fan of this Dorama.|
|At the entrance of the KFV|
|This lady was making silk out of the worms,,,very impressive, she was really nice and explained those can be eaten as well.|
|The Dance....awesome how they make that lace move only with the head.|
|This man was walking on that rope dancing and jumping... I failed to take a video thou :(|
|Are those filled with..... Kimchi? Soy paste?... I couldn't help but wonder....|
|Another one for my mom... The KFV was set for Dae Jang Geum|
|How to ger Silk Fabrics... Next t the lady we saw before n_n|
|And after that... we had a nice lunch at a restaurant inside the KFV!|
|Banchan.... loved it <3|
|There was a couple in one of those tables (sitting on the floor) next to us and the Ajosshi probably listened that I wanted Makgeolli and was kind enough to offer me a cup of Makgeolli.... Priceless... Thank you Sir!!! (You kind of made my day that day)|
Well, I hope you get a chance to visit this Village, I know I want to go back and re-visit.
