The Korean Folk Village offers different shows to revive the vibrant culture of their past. You get to enjoy different festivals all year round, art performances and traditional ceremonies.

Korean Folk Village


Nongak, the traditional farmers’ music, is a street parade or dance choreography accompanied by acrobatic moves while playing the drums and wind instruments.

Although today it is perceived as a form of entertainment, it originated from a communal rite of praying for peace and prosperity in a family or neighborhood.

I sat down not expecting much from this event, but halfway through the show, I found myself on the edge of my seat watching every move as the riders rode backwards, reverse and sideways!

It was my first time to watch a horse show and I was impressed with the horseback standing and tumbling stunts. Brilliant show!Korean Folk Village


Another fun performance I witnessed that day was a traditional Korean wedding.

The ceremony was performed from the arrival of the bride and groom, up to their departure.

I’ve always been fascinated with traditional weddings of different cultures. This was a satisfying experience for me.

I wonder what it feels like to work as a “groom” or “bride”, to get married every day? 😛Korean Folk Village

Along the streets, you’ll also find traditional shops where someone would show you how things were done in the ancient times.
