Jeonju Hanok Village.

The Jeonju Hanok Village is located in the city of Jeonju. There are more than 800 traditional Korean hanok houses here. While the rest of city has been industrialized, Hanok Village retains its historical charms and traditions.

Jeonju Hanok Village is especially beautiful for its unique roof edges, which are slightly raised to the sky. Hanok houses are generally divided into two sections, Anchae and Sarangchae. Sarangchae is where the men dwell, and is referred to as the Seonbi room. Because men and women had to remain separate, Anchae is situated deep inside the house so that it is secretive and quiet.

The village also has a small food night market and hosts numerous festivals throughout the year.
