明洞近くに有る、知る人ぞ知る文化スポットです。今回は夜間に訪れましたが、良かったです。昼間の強い光では気づかないディティールに気づかされたからです。また、部屋の様子も生き生きと浮き彫りにされ、魅力満載でした。 more »This is a well known cultural spot located near Myeong-dong. The room was very clean. Because it was noticed in the detail not noticed in the strong light of daytime. In addition, the appearance of the room was also vividly raised, and it was full of charm.
I made a really cute bag for 36,000 won. The lady doesn’t speak a lot of English but she has a translator app which helped me understand what she was saying. The paint is made naturally (eg. from flowers, the earth) and you have stencils to choose from to fill. For most if not all palaces, you can not enter the houses but if you want to make your own souvenir (cloth, mid/big canvas tote bag) you can. Entering it was so cool. The floor was warm so you wouldn’t freeze while painting.
Interesting concept, they took 5 houses from around Seoul and moved to a single place. The only downside is that all houses were from the same epoch (late 19th century), so you could not compare them with other kinds of traditional constructions. Otherwise, pretty interesting place to go.
