Seoul City is hosting the ‘Bukchon Culture Day’ with citizens and visitors every Saturday in Bukchon for the month of April. Part of a culture program development, ‘Bukchon Culture Day’ is a cultural event, which reflects Bukchon’s unique sense of space and history, to be held in three public hanok places in Bukchon, Jongno-gu (Bukchon Cultural Center, Hanok Support Center, Bukchon Village Library).
First, Bukchon Cultural Center presents citizens and domestic and foreign visitors with special experiences and fun, with traditional culture activities and commentary to be enjoyed inside Hanok.
In addition, the ‘Sharing Our Hanok’ program will be held at the Hanok Support Center to offer a guide for foreign visitors to take interest in and learn about our Hanok heritage.
For all reservations and inquiries about the program, contact the Bukchon Cultural Center (☎ 82-2-741-1033) and Bukchon Village Library (☎ 82-2-765-1373). For more information, visitors can refer to the Seoul Hanok Portal website (http://hanok.seoul.go.kr).
Unlike the Namsan Hanok Village or the Korean Folk Village, Bukchon is an actual living space for residents of the area, so visitors will be required to maintain a calm atmosphere in consideration of the residents.
