Bukchon, (North Village)

Bukchon, (North Village). The collective name of the few tiny suburbs (‘dong’) wedged between Gyeongbuk Palace and the Secret Garden, just north of Insadong and Anguk Station. This area was where relatives of the royal family, high public officials and other important families lived for over 500 years as they serviced the nearby palaces. Today, some 900 of their traditional Korean ‘hanok’ houses remain, making this area one of Seoul’s most picturesque centers of arts, culture, food and fashion.
