About Korean Folk Village
KFV was created with a view to presenting the national culture to local and international tourists by collecting in one place the folk customs in our culture that have been passed down for a long time. The Joseon period village in KFV is composed of real houses relocated and reconstructed from different parts of the country, thus enacting the culture in daily life through four seasons based on thorough historical verification and consultation. KFV has since its foundation in 1974 been loved as a tourist destination that provides vivid cultural experience as well as traditional culture set in beautiful nature.

Option 2. Gyeongbokgung Palace
About Gyeongbokgung Palace
It was in 1395, three years after the Joseon Dynasty was founded by King Taejo (Yi Seong-gye), when the construction of the main royal Palace was completed after the capital of the newly founded dynasty moved from Gaeseong to Seoul (then known as Hanyang). The Palace was named Gyeongbokgung Palace, the "Palace Greatly Blessed by Heaven." With Mount Bugaksan to its rear and Mount Namsan in the foreground, the site of Gyeongbokgung Palace was at the heart of Seoul and, indeed, deemed auspicious according to the traditional practice of geomancy.
