Korean Folk Village - Admission Fees

Adult (above age 18): 18,000 won / Teenager (age 13-18): 15,000 won / Child (under age 13): 13,000 won

   Recommended Route:

  • Gangnam Station (line 2/Sinbundang, exit 5). Upon exit, U-turn and cross the road just behind the station exit to the bus stop at the middle of the road. Take bus #5001-1. 2,500 won, 55 mins journey. After alighting from the bus, cross the road to the big car park in front and walk towards Korean Folk Village entrance on your right. 5 mins walk. For departure from Korean Folk Village, take the same bus #5001-1 across the road from where you alight earlier. (i.e. departing bus stop is on the same side as Korean Folk Village, no road crossing required).

Note:

  1. The bus stop before exit 5 of Gangnam Station is 300m away from Exit 10 in front of WHO.A.U store, a slightly further but nonetheless a pleasant walk at street level.​

  2. Both bus stops from Gangnam Station exit 5 or 10 are the same bus stops going to Everland on bus #5002.

There are many other travel options/routes to Korean Folk Village but only the popular route is covered and recommended here as:

  1. Bus #1560 from Gangnam Station is a longer walking distance from alighting bus stop to Korean Folk Village.

  2. Bus #5001-1 from Sinnonhyeong Station as subway travel time from Seoul Station/Myeongdong to Sinnonhyeong or Gangnam Stations are about the same. Since the bus will come from Sinnonhyeong Station before reaching Gangnam Station, it will mean slightly less travel time boarding from Gangnam Station. Finally, Gangnam is a great place to shop or dine after your visit to to Korean Folk Village.

  3. Bus (#37, #10-5, 55 mins journey) or free shuttle bus (limited pickup times, 3 times daily) from Suwon Station as it takes a long 1+ hour by subway to Suwon Station from Seoul Station/Myeongdong/Gangnam and the bus journey to Korean Folk Village is not shorter either. Nonetheless, the bus stops nearer to Korean Folk Village entrance and is the terminal stop.​

Korean Folk Village - Official Website

The Korean Folk Village located on a large 245 acres of land with backdrop of mountains and a river running through it. The village was created by relocating and restoring 270 real houses from different parts of the country, successfully enacting the daily life culture of a typical village during Joseon dynasty.

The Korean Folk Village has been a popular film site for many well-known historical dramas including My Love from the Star (2013), Moon Embracing the Sun (2012), Dong Yi (2010), Sungkyunkwan Scandal (2010), The Great Queen Seondeok (2009) and of course, the hugely popular Dae Jang Geum (2003).
