About Bukchon Hanok Village
Bukchon Hanok Village nestled between the two major palaces of the Joseon Dynasty, Gyeongbokgung Palace and Changdeokgung Palace. Unlike other traditional Hanok villages, Bukchon was not created for tourists but it is a living village, comprising about 900 Hanoks houses. The reason there are so many traditional houses in this area is that many Yangbans (people from the aristocratic class) lived here during the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910).

With its Hanok galleries, craft workshops and restaurants, the village is increasingly important as a center for culture and arts. There are also a number of traditional Korean cultural spots including Hanok B&Bs, embroidery museums, Korean folk art, traditional bakeries and many more.
