Situated between the Gyeongbokgung and Changdeokgung palaces, Bukchon Hanok Village has the largest cluster of privately owned traditional Korean wooden homes, called hanoks, in Seoul. The Bukchon area boasts 600 years of history; its location reflects the views of neo-Confucianism, regarding the world and nature, during the Joseon Dynasty.
