Bukchon Hanok // Korea Film

Cities and Landscapes

street

Instead of staying in the city areas of Seoul, we decided to stay in a traditional village, known as a Hanok. The street was beautiful, and being slightly elevated on a gentle hill meant that we had the sunset angled towards us every evening. This quaint street was an everyday walk for us, usually in the evenings where we would venture up to find somewhere nice to eat. There were also many small local businesses which we enjoyed supporting, whether it was through buying an $8 linen shirt, or a Korean Photo Magazine, or even grabbing an ice-cream after dinner.

The experience of staying in a Hanok is much more gentle, much more peaceful than the bustling city of Seoul, office workers, lawyers and students bustling about the place didn’t seem too pleasant an option. (As compared to the quiet, jovial atmosphere of Bukchon Hanok.) If only we could have extended our stay there.
