Namsangol Hanok Village is located in Pil-dong, Jung-gu, Seoul. It used to have a valley and Cheonugak Pavilion during the Joseon Dynasty, so it was used as a summer vacation site. The project for restoring Namsangol Hanok Village began in 1989, and the village was opened in 1998.
Bukchon is a residential area. Therefore, so as to prevent creating any disturbances for the ones who actually live here, please do not talk in loud voices or peer into people's houses.
Buckchon Hanok Village was formed as the nobility of the Joseon Dynasty started to settle in the area between the Gyeongbokgung and Changdeokgung Palaces. Visitors can see old alleys, waterway remains, and many hanok (Korean traditional houses).
