The Meaning of Hanok Village


The Korean pronunciation of Hanok Village is "Hanok Ma-eul".

 It's a prime tourist attraction, beloved by both locals and international visitors eager to explore the traditional Korean lifestyle.😍



Cultural Heritage within the Hanok Village

🧐Hidden throughout the village are significant cultural heritages waiting to be discovered:



✔️Jeonju Hyanggyo


✏️Jeonju Hyanggyo served not only as Daeseongjeon, where the tablets of great sages were enshrined, but also as an educational institution.



Its front yard boasts a Ginkgo tree approximately 400 years old, which becomes a magnificent sight in autumn. The Ginkgo tree, known for repelling pests, was planted with the hope that students would grow up to be upright individuals, similar to the tree's nature.🍂 

This site is also a popular backdrop for K-dramas, offering picturesque scenes with its maple-lined stone walls.🎥

Jeonju Hyanggyo is a filming location that beautifully captures the ambiance of the drama 'Moonlight Drawn by Clouds🥰', set in the Joseon era.




✔️Gyeonggijeon Shrine


This shrine houses the portrait of King Taejo, the founder of the Joseon Dynasty, and serves as a site for ancestral rites. 



It is a sacred cultural asset of historical significance. However, what endears Gyeonggijeon to visitors is its ancient ambiance and lush surroundings, providing a serene and peaceful escape not found in urban settings. Surrounded by phytoncide-rich trees🌳, it's a favored cultural heritage site among many.😌
