  • Culture & Tourism news SMG 20758

    Seoul has concluded the schedule for exhibitions and rentals of Bukchon Hanok Hall (29-1, Bukchon-ro 12-gil, Jongno-gu), a shared space for citizens, for the first half of 2020 through advance recruitment. A variety of exhibitions will be held over the course of six months, starting in January.

    Since 2017, Seoul has been operating Bukchon Hanok Hall as a shared hanok for all citizens. Seoulites who want to hold an exhibition that is suitable for a hanok environment and the locality of Bukchon are allowed to apply to rent the space.

    In the first half of 2020, a total of 16 exhibitions will take place. The theme of the exhibitions, in which students who specialized in arts, artists, and groups will participate, will be either traditional culture and handicrafts, including ceramics, wooden furniture, flower arrangement, bojagi (wrapping cloth) and so forth, or modern handicrafts like pen drawing, photography, and more. Each exhibition will take place over the course of one week to three weeks and participants will be present to guide visitors.

    Visitors who will come to attend the exhibition must not miss the landscape of Gahoe-dong that they can see from Bukchon Hanok Hall, which is one of the gems they can enjoy while visiting the place.

    Bukchon Hanok Hall is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day (closed on Mondays) and the entrance fee is free. For more information on the exhibitions, please visit the notice of the website of Seoul Hanok Portal (http://hanok.seoul.go.kr) or contact the Hanok Architecture Property Department of the Seoul Metropolitan Government (☎+82-2-2133-5580).
