Namsangol Hanok Village 


Namsangol Hanok Village is a collection of five hanoks (traditional Korean houses) from the Joseon 
Dynasty (1392-1910), recovered from different parts of the city and relocated to the northern foot 
of Namsan mountain. The interiors of each of these five houses reflect owners from different walks 
of life, from the middle class to the yangban (who were mainly high government officials, noblemen 
and aristocrats).

Five hanoks and five important residents from the Joseon era

At Namsangol Hanok Village, visitors can see the hanoks of important figures from the Joseon era 
including the house of Queen Yun's parents, who was the Queen Consort to King Sunjong, the 27th 
king of the Joseon Dynasty; the jaesil (study) of Yun Taekyeong, King Sunjong's father-in-law; the 
house of Park Yeonghyo, the son-in-law of King Cheoljong, the 25th king; the house of Lee Seungeop, 
who was in charge of constructing Gyeongbokgung (Palace) and the house of Kim Chunyeong, a 
military official of the Joseon Dynasty.

Your chance to experience Korean culture

At the hanok village, international visitors can participate in traditional Korean activities such as 
archery and enjoy traditional Korean performances as well. Anyone who is curious about Korean 
wedding culture should visit the village on the weekend when the wedding ceremony reenactments 
take place.

In addition, the Taekwondo experience program for foreigners is held at 11 a.m., 2 p.m., and 5 p.m. 
on Wednesday and Saturday every week at Namsangol Hanok Village. Foreigners wishing to 
experience taekwondo rather than simply watch can participate in taekwondo practice sessions by 
making a reservation via the website
