Really wonderful to see where they filmed the drama’s from the Palaces and authentic folk village ( houses, farming, jail, acrobats from back then and the dyeing fabrics was gorgeous. We manahed to get pictures of some actors, not famous, but very familiar faces especially in hisytoricals
The tour of MBC Dramia was more than I imagined. The set covered many acres on a hillside and the view was incredible. I could picture scenes from Jumong and Jewel in the Palace as I walked the grounds.
Korean Folk Village displayed villages, homes and clothing during the Joseon dynasty. Vegetable and herb gardens were abundant over the many acres of the village. There was a food court where one could try traditional Korean fare. During the day, exhibitions took place on the grounds.
Since it was Korean Thanksgiving, many visitors were dressed in their traditional outfits, hanbok.
I would highly recommend this tour especially if you are into Korean dramas.
It turned out to be the most disappointing trip. We informed Viator when we reserved the tour that we eat everything except beef. The tour guide took us for lunch and charged us extra 6000₩ for pork.
The tour guide rushed us from place to place because he wanted to take us to duty free shop. Awful!!
The TV Set Tour was a bit of a disappointment to me at least.
It is not the most interesting place to visit when there is nothing happening there, so for fans of the dramas only. My children are fans and were telling me that which dramas were filmed in each of the sections we looked around. The countryside on the way there and back was a pleasant change from Seoul city.
The Korean Folk Village was exceptional. Our tour guide and tour schedule meant that we arrived at exactly the right time for the shows. The traditional and modern food available was just what I was looking for.
The tour guide was very helpful, beyond what I was expecting
It is really a very nice place to visit. However, time is too short and rush when we were at Yongin MBC Drama TV Set Tour. We would prefer to have a longer stay at Yongin to view the site. Tour guide, Ms Erica, was a very nice and friendly lady. She explained and gave us a better understanding of the houses that belongs to different part of the folks from Korea when we visited the Folk Village. Overall, I feel Yongin MBC Dramia TV Set Tour should be allowed as a 1 day tour and Folk Village as a separate tour on a half day basis. As it was snowing at Yongin and the floor was slippery due to the frozen water, both my mum and I fell during the tour as we were rushing through touring the site.
