Today, many of these Hanoks reform and operate as cultural centers, galleries, guest houses, restaurants, and tea house, providing an opportunity to experience, learn and immerse in Korean traditional culture. Nevertheless, this historic village is well preserved by Seoul Metropolitan Policy, and lots of traditional Hanoks and new buildings coexist side by side harmoniously.
A few days ago, I enjoyed walking along the interesting street of Bukchon Village and sketching the colorful buidings and streetscapes.
