Meet Dae Jang Geum (대장금 | 大長今) in Jeju Folk Village

Jeju / Korea

Situated in JeJu island in South Korea, this is an exhibition style village that displayed the living environment of Korean folks in the past. The Korea drama “ Da Chang Jin” (Dae Jang Geum / 大長今) had featured JeJu island as one of its famous filming sites.

What happened? What happened?!!

The Pungmul (or Nongak) performers performing Korean folk music tradition.

Traditional Korea dresses- the hanbok. The hanbok shown in this exhibition room have been dressed by actress Lee Young-Ae (李英愛) before.

    Hi Eunice,

    I’m a big fan of Dae Jang Geum. It’s a beautiful story. Thanks for your pictures of Jeju Island and the village sets there. I think the Korean hanbok dresses are absolutely lovely, especially as worn by Lee Young Ae. If you visit my blog, you’ll find my review of Dae Jang Geum there.
