Korean Folk Village

I spent yesterday afternoon at the Korean Folk Village, an outdoor museum dedicated to Korean culture from before the country’s modernization.

First our group was herded to a show of horsemanship, including displays of acrobatics and archery performed on horseback.

The next event was a re-enactment of a traditional Korean wedding, held in the courtyard of a replica of a nobleman’s house.

Then we just wandered, checking out the waterfall, bridges, wooden buildings, gardens, and the marketplace with baskets, fans, pottery, handmade pipes, parasols, and calligraphy brushes.  Lovely and peaceful.
