Seollal, the first day of the lunar New Year, is one of the most important traditional holidays in Korea and falls on Sunday, February 10 this year. This family-oriented traditional holiday marks a rare occasion for Koreans to engage in a variety of folk games. However, you do not need to feel left out, as Seoul’s royal palaces will remain open and set the folk game stage for visitors during the 3-day holiday period. Namsangol Hanok Village 남산골한옥마을 (T. 02-2264-4412) operates a year-round program from Tuesday through Saturday that begins at 4pm and provides patrons with opportunities to dress in Korean traditional costume, experience Korean tea culture, and attend a traditional music concert. Tickets cost 50,000 won. Visitors can also only try on Korean traditional costumes and drink Korean tea for a fee of 15,000 won throughout the year.
