Korean Folk Village, or “Old World Korea”

Journal Entry: 6/8/09

Went to Gyeonggi University and got a small tour of the campus and also sat in on a class. The University has two campuses, one in Suwon and the other in Seoul. Courses are mainly taught in Korean but in the international college English is mainly used.




Some students took us out for lunch before we headed to the Folk Village.

The Korean Folk Village in Suwon reminds me of Old World Wisconsin. It is a mini-theme park dedicated to the traditional agriculture, buildings, village life, arts and crafts, and medicine.
