Wear a hanbok and become the protagonist of a historical Korean drama!
At the Namsan Seoul Tower Hanbok Experience Center photo zone, you can see the royal throne of Gyeongbokgung Palace's Geunjeongjeon Hall, Gyeongbokgung Palace, the queen's residence, and the sarangbang (guest room) of a traditional hanok building. Experience the lives of the king, queen, and noblemen during the Joseon Dynasty by donning a hanbok and taking pictures in the historical photo zones that showcase traditional Korean aesthetic values. You can also view the set designs from famous historical dramas, such as Masquerade and The Princess and the Matchmaker, designed by artistic director Heung-seok Oh.
The center aims to provide a modern reinterpretation of traditional Korean culture. The visually pleasing elegant lines and elements of traditional Korean architecture, and the use of natural materials and an organic design sensibility altogether create a comfortable Korean-style space.
Sarangchae: A room in a hanok (traditional Korean house) which was used as the male head of the household's living quarters and a room for hosting guests.
Junggungjeon (the queen's residential palace): The royal bedchamber and living quarters of the Queen during the Joseon Dynasty. Gyeongbokgung Palace's Gyotaejeon Hall is one example of the queen's residential palace.
Jeongjeon, Okjwa: The central building of the palace, where the king's coronation and other state ceremonies took place. The okjwa was the seat of the king, a council hall where the king worked with his officials.
Jungjeong: The main building of a hanok in the northern regions of Korea. The Namsan Seoul Tower Hanbok Experience Center jungjeong follows the natural lines of Wollang-gil and acts as the focal point of the space. The ceiling of the jungjeong was inspired by the royal palace central building's ceilings and the design features a powerful dragon.
Wollang-gil: Wollang are rooms on both sides of the main gate of the palace, where servants live. Wollang-gil is a pathway under the eaves of a wollang or a pathway that connects two wollang.
At Namsan Seoul Tower Hanbok Experience Center the wollang-gil has taken on a more modern form, which shows off the directional nature of the space.
