South Korea: Jeju: Seongeup Folk Village

Destination: Seongeup Folk VillageLocation: Seogwipo-si Pyoseon-myeon Seongeup-ri, Jeju
Located at the foot of Mt. Halla on Jeju Island, Seongeup Folk Village is a small town that holds a vast amount of culture.
I learned from Arirang channel, the photo on left side means that the house owner just left and will be back after 30-60minutes. The photo on right means you are not welcome to enter his house.

Daejanggeum (Jewel in the Palace) (Sep 2003 - March 2004)
Many of the scenes in which Jang-geum learns medicine as a maidservant for the Jeju local government from episodes 27 to 32 were filmed on this Folk Village. [Reference]

After roaming for around one hour in the Folk Village, we were given the traditional lunch with a choice of: Jeju black pork barbeque or vegetable bibimbap.
