Seollal (Lunar New Year) 설날
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.
