Namsangol Hanok Village at night (N Seoul Tower in the background)

Namsangol Hanok Village is a collection of five hanoks (traditional Korean houses) from the Joseon 
Dynasty (1392-1920), recovered from different parts of the city and relocated to the northern foot of 
Namsan Mountain. The interiors of each house reflect owners from different walks of life, from the 
middle class to the upperclass, called yangban (mainly high government officials, noblemen, 
aristocrats). To get there from Myeong-dong, hop on just about any bus from the bus stop between 
exit 3 and 4 of Myeong-dong Station (line 4). You will only go one stop to Chungmuro Station. From 
Chungmuro Station, walk into the alley between exit 3 and 4 to reach the Hanok Village. 

Though this Hanok Village is not a popular filming location (granted there are large outdoor sets for 
period dramas outside of Seoul), a few Korean films, like Hwang Jin Yi (2007), featured this location. 
Take a stroll around the traditional hanok village, nesteld in an urban city. If you've got some time, 
you can also participate in traditional Korean activities like archery and also enjoy some traditional 
Korean performances. In addition, Taekwondo (Korean martial arts) experience programs for 
foreigners are held at 11am, 2pm, and 5pm every Wednesday and Saturday.
