Located in the bosom of Namsan Mountain, Namsangol Hanok Village comprises five hanok buildings, the Gugakdang (traditional theater), Traditional Garden, and Seoul Millennium Time Capsule Square.
Namsangol Hanok Village is a collection of five hanoks (traditional Korean houses) from the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910), recovered from different parts of the city and relocated to the northern foot of Namsan mountain. The interiors of each of these five houses reflect owners from different walks of life, from the middle class to the yangban (who were mainly high government officials, noblemen and aristocrats).
At Namsangol Hanok Village, visitors can see the hanoks of important figures from the Joseon era including the house of Queen Yun's parents, who was the Queen Consort to King Sunjong, the 27th king of the Joseon Dynasty; the jaesil (study) of Yun Taekyeong, King Sunjong's father-in-law; the house of Park Yeonghyo, the son-in-law of King Cheoljong, the 25th king; the house of Lee Seungeop, who was in charge of constructing Gyeongbokgung Palace and the house of Kim Chunyeong, a military official of the Joseon Dynasty.
The NHV offers diverse cultural programs both traditional and contemporary, and tries to incorporate them in a harmonious way. By doing so, we hope to help visitors reflect on Korean tradition from a fresh perspective, discover its hidden values, and ultimately, make the past feel closer and more relevant.
