What To Expect
Yongin MBC Dramia was co-created by Munhwa Broadcasting Company (MBC) and Yongin Municipal Office in August 2005. Located in Yongcheong-ri, Baekam-myeon, Yongin-si, MBC Dramia is an open set that measures a total of 29,421m² (about 84,000 pyeong).
Different from other drama sets, Dramia has been re-created based on historical records and very accurately reflects the architecture and culture of ancient times. Dramia has served as the filming location for hugely popular Korean historical dramas such as “Jumong," “Queen Seon-deok,” “Isan,” and “Dong Yi.”
The Korean Folk Village is home to numerous collections of Korean cultural artifacts, providing an opportunity for Korean children to experience and learn the culture of their ancestors firsthand. The site provides a venue to promote traditional Korean culture to both domestic and international visitors and provides an open-air learning place for succeeding generations. The village has been developed to convey the wisdom and the spirits of our ancestors to both domestic and international tourists.
The lifestyle of Korean people, with a history extending back more than 5,000 years, abruptly changed following the Kabo Peasant War (1894), the Japanese invasion of Korea (1910-1945), and the Korean War (1950-1953). When the Korean economy surged in the 1960s, the Office of Cultural Properties started to value the establishment and operation of a folk museum. The economy, society, and culture in Korea underwent a tremendous change in pursuit of the Saemaeul Movement (movement for regional development), promoted nationwide in the 1970s. During this period, the government, influenced by the Foreigners' Tourism Promotion Policy, formed an advisory council on January 15, 1972, to research the establishment of the Korean Folk Village. Accordingly, the Korean Folk Village was founded on May 8, 1973, and the privatization of the Folk Village was officially approved by the government on September 18, 1973.
