Korean Folk Village

A couple of weeks ago, I visited the Korean Folk Village in Yongin, not far from Suwon. This is a sort of cultural theme park which highlights old-style Korean living in the Folk style. lol. There, I saw:

  • Equestrian Arts demonstrations

(sorry for the photo quality – the throng was quite great!)

  • Tightrope walking?

Image

  • Silk Spinning Demonstration

Image

And this is where silk comes from!

Remember that silkworm thing I ate a few weeks ago – same thing. O_o

  • An old-fashioned wedding procession

Image

  • Archery Demonstrations & Trials

Image

The master archer!

My friend and I tried our hands at it – I made this ONE shot! lol. the rest didn’t hit the target.

  • A smith making knives & stuff

Image

  • cotton spinning

Image

  • Traditional Roofing methods

There were also animals which were traditionally kept:

And of course, different kinds of traditional houses!

Last, but not least, there is a Buddhist Temple on the grounds, too.

There’s even an amusement park! My friend and I only rode two rides – but it was fun!

This was definitely a nice day out!

In some ways, this reminded me of Old Missouri Town 1855, which brings back fond elementary school memories. 🙂
