Seong-eup Jeju Folk Village

Jeju Folk Village in Seongeup or Minsokchon is a must-see site in Jeju if you want to know how korean people live long time ago. Jeju Folklore Village intended to find, preserve, and develop the heritage with hopes that the village will remain a stimulus for further cultural development. The village displayed the living environment of Korean folks in the past.

As you enter the gate, you can feel and imagine how people live there. It's far different on how people live now where most Koreans live in apartment building.

The place is so familiar. I saw this kind of scene on TV like korean drama and movies. There were no people when we went there so the area is so peaceful.

Some of the houses still have loads.

These clay pot shows how people took some water from the stream. They carried it on their back when they get some water.

Can you see the clay pots? I think most people long time ago have clay pots. They are used to preserve kimchi.

These fruit trees also caught my attention. I don't know what they are but they look like pomelo (Citrus maxima or Citrus grandis).
