As soon as arriving at Korean Folk Village, I went to the performance area to see the ‘farmer’s music and dance’. There were already a lot of people and many people were enjoying the traditional performance. After finishing the performance, you can take pictures with performers.
The second performance I saw was ‘Acrobatics on a Tightrope walking’. That is a performance that demonstrates skills and boasts a witty talk on the shaky tightrope and was designated as important intangible asset No. 58 of the country. (Listed in 2011 as UNESCO Intangible Human Heritage) He acts will likely fall but flies in the air jumping on the tightrope. You can watch the performance only in Korea. This performance starts at 14:30. If you want to see the great performance that has only in Korea, visit the Korean folk village now!

Korean Folk Village
The lifestyle of Korean people, with a history extending back more than 5,000 years, abruptly changed following the Kabo Peasant War (1894), the Japanese invasion of Korea (1910-1945), and the Korean War (1950-1953). When the Korean economy surged in the 1960s, the Office of Cultural Properties started to value the establishment and operation of a folk museum. The economy, society, and culture in Korea underwent a tremen-dous change in pursuit of the Saemaeul Movement (movement for regional development), promoted nationwide in the 1970s. During this period, the government, influenced by the Foreigners’ Tourism Promotion Policy, formedan advisory council on January 15, 1972 to research the establishment of the Korean Folk Village. Accordingly, the Korean Folk Village was foundedon May 8, 1973, and the privatization of the Folk Village was officially approved by the government on September 18, 1973.
