Korean Folk Village

The Korean Folk Village is home to numerous collections of Korean cultural artifacts, providing an opportunity for Korean children to experience and learn the culture of their ancestors firsthand.
The site provides a venue to promote traditional Korean culture to both domestic and international visitors, and provides an open-air learning place for succeeding generations. The village has been developed to convey the wisdom and the spirits of our ancestors to both domestic and international tourists.

The Korean Folk Village is open all year-round and nearly 1.8 million domestic and foreign tourists visit here throughout the year. The Folk Village is a venue where visitors can learn Korean culture in a short time through the collection, preservation, research, exhibition, education and exchange of Korean cultural materials.
It also provides an outdoor folk museum, already renowned as a world-class tourist attraction, so that visitors can experience the lifestyle of the Korean people. Already valued as a symbol of the Korean culture, the Korean Folk Village shall continuously endeavor to grow and be admired and acclaimed by people from around the world.

Farmers' Music and Dance
Farmers' music and dance is a synthetic art accompanying every kind of religious rite, festival, parade, and seasonal farming activity. It is performed with Korean percussion instruments (brass gong, drum, gong, hourglass drum,tabor) and wind instruments (shawm, trumpet, whistle).The
Nongak band consists of Kisu (farming tools, youngi), Jaebi (Sangshwe, busu, gong, drum, janggu and sogo) and Jabsaek (daeposu, Yangban, Hwasang, bride, prostitute and mudong) and plays diverse entertainment to the command of the leading instrument Sangshwe (bupo, jangdan and story-telling) and rhythm of the Jingsu.

Acrobatics on a Tightrope

A vine cord of about 10 meters is tied to an oak tree at a height of about 3 meters. Then the rope clown walks on the rope, keeping balance with a fan in one hand and a handkerchief in the other. He performs various acts according to the rhythm. It is a professional conviviality of a folk festival, performing various acrobatic movements in tune with the rhythm. Designated as intangible culture property No.58, acrobatics on a tightrope dates back to the Three Kingdom Period.
The clown would exercise his talent on a tight-rope talking wittily, amusing the audience. He performed on the national holidays and festival days. Mr. Hong Kee Chul of the Korean Folk Village twice daily presents many tricks on the tight rope in tune with the rhythm.

Equestrian Feats
Equestrian Feats is also known as equestrian art because it employs splendid horse-riding techniques such as two swords on horseback, horseback archery, and horseback tumbling. The Equestrian Feats performance at KFV incorporates into its contemporary elaboration the dynamic techniques of the horseback tumbling such as horseback standing, backward riding, reverse riding, and sideways riding. Also reenacting horseback bow shooting, horseback lance wielding, and horseback swordsmanship, which constitute the essence of Equestrian Feats, the performance demonstrates the spirit of a horse-riding people.

Traditional Wedding Ceremony
In ancient times, weddings (Honrye) were held in the bride's yard or house. The groom traveled by horse to the bride's house and after the wedding ceremony took his wife in a palanquin (sedan chair) to his parents' house to live. The bride and groom wore formal court costumes for the wedding ceremony. Ordinary people were permitted to wear the luxurious clothes only on their wedding day. Hand lanterns are used for lighting the way from the groom's home to the bride's home on the night before the wedding. Traditionally, the groom's family would carry a wedding chest filled with gifts for the bride's family. Wedding geese are a symbol for a long and happy marriage. Cranes are a symbol of long life and may be represented on the woman's sash. Pairs of wooden Mandarin duck carvings called wedding ducks are often used in traditional wedding ceremonies because they represent peace, fidelity, and plentiful offspring.
