A stroll around Bukchon Hanok Village lets you experience a traditional Korean village. The village, with its 6 centuries of history, is located between the 2 most beautiful palaces in the city, Gyeongbokgung and Changdeokgung. Unlike other traditional villages, Bukchon was not built for tourists. This is where the ruling class lived during the Joseon Dynasty and a few descendants of the aristocracy still reside here.
The Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910) was the longest-lasting imperial dynasty in world history, and continues to largely determine the face of contemporary Korea. This is clearly apparent in such everyday matters as authority, respect for elders, etiquette and language use.
