I was shocked about how awful it is. Laughably Bad. Often no translation in English or too limited and incomplete . This might be possibly workable IF there was someone present to explain or show...

Jeju Folk Village has a spacious compound with traditional Korean houses on Jeju Island. Although the village is the island’s main tourist attraction, there were not many visitors during our visit. The village exhibits focus on the living culture and history of Jeju Island. A map is provided during the visit. Overall experience was alright and it was lovely to take a relaxing stroll inside the folk village. Perhaps the exhibits could be more interesting and interactive instead of repetitive.
Very well designed and built village. Plenty of things to see. We have been there in an August weekday and it was not busy at all. No queues. A lot of things to experience and a great way to spend time and enjoy with the family while learning about Korean culture and tradition.
