Bukchon Hanok Village http://bukchon.seoul.go.kr/eng/index.jsp

An old residential district containing about 860 Korean traditional houses (hanok), Bukchon (“North Town”) is thus named because it is located north of Cheonggyecheon, a stream cutting across downtown Seoul. Formed on a site flanked by two of the Joseon’s royal palaces, Gyeongbokgung and Changdeokgung, the district had been a hub of Joseon’s politics, administration and culture as it contained homes of royals, high-ranking officials and Confucian literati elites of the dynasty. It is widely regarded as a living museum preserving much of the Seoul’s tradition and culture with, in addition to the age-old houses and alleys, historic sites, art galleries, museums, exhibition facilities, antique shops, craft workshops and restaurants. The Bukchon Hanok Village has grown into one of Seoul’s major tourist attractions with the views of its 600-year history uniquely amalgamated with the urban scenes of the 21st century. The town now offers two exciting walking routes starting respectively at the street numbers 31 and 11 of Gahoe-dong linked to a unique network of alleys.

Museum of Korean Art 
Opened in 1993, the Museum of Korean Art houses more than 6,000 Buddhist relics related to Buddhism including paintings, sculptures, crafts and ritual items. Of special artistic value are the Buddhist paintings and statues of the Buddha from the Joseon Dynasty which have given experts some very useful insights. The museum also organizes a program of temporary exhibitions alongside its permanent collection.

Jongchinbu (Jeongdok Public Library) 
Designated in 1969 as Seoul Tangible Cultural Property No. 9, Jongchinbu is one of three remaining Joseon Dynasty government office buildings. Built in 1433, it was where issues of the royal family and kindred of the king were discussed during the Joseon Dynasty. It is now located within Jeongdok Library.

Yun Boseon House 
The house of Yun Boseon has such an extensive history that it was designated as Historic Site No. 438 in 2002. This large house, composed of 99 units, was the residence of the Min family at the end of the 19th century. It was once occupied by Park Yeonghyo, who was the son-in-law of King Gojong and played a leading role in the Gapsin Coup. From 1910 onwards it was occupied by the father of the former president Yun Boseon and his descendants for 4 generations. It is still occupied by his descendants to this day, but the house is not open to visitors.
