There are about 117 houses and facilities in this place. Jeju Folk Village Museum has restored the scenes of the village of the 1890's. There are many of them and among them are :

It was built on land of more than 40 acres after long term research and analysis of experts. Many extensive range of folk items on display on this area,eg. wooden ware, bamboo ware, earth ware, porcelain ware, wax candles , ironware and some other ancient items.
Many old days customs can be explored here at The Jeju Fol Village Museum.

Are you a fan of Korean Drama?
Well some of the historical dramas was filmed here, eg. the well know Daeganggeum aka Jewel in the Palace, The Great Merchant Kim and many more famous drama.

IMA went back home and watch Daeganggeum Drama again especially from episodes 27 to 32  where Jang Geum learns medicine as a maid were filmed especially at Jeju Folk Village.

One can relates and appreciate the amazing scenic beauty of Jeju as well as experience the traditional culture of Jeju at this Museum.

I love historical and ancient story so this place complete my journey at Jeju do.

Walked into this shop near the entrance and decided to eat this original Jeju Bread.


Bought cappuccino to compliment this original Jeju Bread. The taste of this bread??? Full of orangie taste. hahahaha just because their specialty is orange.

After some coffee and bread...let us walk and enjoyyyyyy and feel the history...




See how they tied that rock to the roof just to avoid that roof being taken away by strong wind?
That corn dried hanging by the wall....so natural way of drying farm crops.

IMA experienced the corn grinding using all these ancient tools...hehehe


See that house has only one pillar in the center. Different part of Jeju different style of houses built.

This one is the ancestors offering custom.

Their toilet always link to pig pen.
See that boy is doing his 'business' and the pig is rushing for the offering...understand the cycle????
hehehehehe...this is nature everybody!!!

They even have fresh vegetables farm every where here and the flowers was plant according to season.


That pumpkin are all real!!!!
Big, ripe and bloody heavy and I bet it sweet to eat!!!
Ahhhh.... I feel like wanna have pumpkin soup for instance.



Jang Geum look so real here....ahhhh...really can relate back when came to film site house.

This one is 'Hanyeo' aka Woman Diver's house. That was the 'old times' Hanyeo's suit before replace that modern one.

The top two in the photo is place where you can eat traditional dish in Jeju. The price not so expensive.
The bottom two is Shaman Village. Shaman is somebody who gain power and knowledge from spirit world to heal people..

The eerie feeling when set foot into this Shaman Village. huhuhuhuhuh....

This place is where ancient people entertain themselves with  many types of traditional games.

Jeng jjeng jeng..this is place to punish all the criminals.

The prison everyone and Jang Geum was imprison here too.
