On May 5th 2022, 4 members of Yonsei Global and 3 exchange students gathered in front of the Sinchon campus to visit the Bukchon Hanok Village. We met early in the morning to take the bus and arrived at Anguk station at around 9:30AM. After changing into hanbok, a Korean traditional clothing, we walked to the village.
Bukchon Hanok Village was beautiful with its extraordinary view and calm atmosphere. We walked around, enjoying the daylight, and admired the traditional building structures. We took pictures of each other in hanbok.
After looking around the village, we stopped by a famous churros store. They had all sorts of flavors, so we each picked our favorites – oreo, injeolmi, and cinnamon with ice-cream. After cooling down with some ice-cream and churros, we walked back to the hanbok store to get changed and headed for lunch. We enjoyed jjukkumi and had more time to get to know each other.
The walk around Bukchon Hanok Village was not only a great opportunity to explore Korean traditional clothing and building structures, but also to meet new friends. We had a delightful time talking about our interests and really enjoyed getting to know each other. We hope to meet again soon.
