The Korean Folk Village in Yongin will take you back in time to hanboks and traditions and will greet you like an old friend. Surrounded by greenery and fresh air, the Korean Folk Village gives visitors a chance to live in the past during the Joseon Dynasty and experience customs and traditions of how life was before and still to this day many of the traditions have survived the changing of time. The beautiful and well preserved village is everything an old Korean town was before and mimics the way of life. Visitors will be able to visit the fortune tellers house, take a walk up to the Buddhist temple, visit the iron ware shop, and buy trinkets. There are a variety of performances to enjoy such as dancers and a play of a Korean traditional wedding.

The Korean Folk Village serves as reminder of how important a countries history is, and it should never be forgotten. It's so easy to forget about the old ways of life when we are surrounded by modern luxuries and mesmerized by fast cars and new high tech gadgets. For any lover of history, it's always a heart warming experience to escape from 2014 and enter a different era.
