Hanok (Korena Traditional Building) Photos Spots in Jeonju

Jeonju is the city of hanok (Korean traditional building or house). Even outside the famous Jeonju Hanok Village, there are spots where you can visit hanok buildings. Today, I’ll introduce the best places in Jeonju to take photos with hanok buildings.

Omokdae Pavilion, Jeonju Hanok Village

We start with Omokdae Pavilion at Jeonju Hanok Village. At the end of Taejoro, the main street of the hanok village is a small mountain. It only takes several minutes to walk up the stairs and enjoy the view from above.

It feels nice to walk on the natural trail. Also, the view of the hanok roofs is stunning from above. Listening to birds and enjoying the breeze, it feels like a sanctuary away from the bustling Hanok Village.

I headed to Jeolla Gamyong, the newly restored provincial government complex during the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910). I’m looking forward to the interesting events that will take place here once the coronavirus situation is over!

Although hanok is traditional in style, buildings themselves are new here. I’m sure once the temperature rises and the premise gets greener, this place will be more popular.

Gunji Square, Jeonbuk National University

For the last several years, Jeonbuk National University has been transforming into a hanok campus. At the center of the campus is Gunji Square and Munhoeru Pavilion surrounded by foundatins. The site is very popular to local families with children.

The university has been building more hanok-style buildings. I also recommend taking a stroll in the campus.

    Hanok Village This is the dream of my dreams and I want to see it with my own eyes and I love it so much that cleaning and green trees and soft grass is a great experience and I want to take advantage of this experience. We are trapped in the house due to this COVID_19 and after this COVID_19 is over, come to Korea soon to enjoy Hanok Village. Will come soon after this pandemic

  • Jem Dela Cruz

    In korean culture, hanok is always the number 1 in the list that I want to take a visit. I’m really fascinate towards the structures of the building/house plus the specific details that really empowered the beauty and history of the hanok.

    The whole city is one giant photo shoot opportunity. Whether you go up on the hill to look down at the beautiful rooftops awash in the golden sunest, or the bamboo grove and cherry trees in tthe Gyeonggijeon garden, or the amazingly creative and colorful mural Village of Jaman, you can’t go wrong. You’ll end up with beautiful photos to cherish all of your life. I’m glad I am not the one who had to come up with a list.It’s impoossible to pick among many sites of this amazingly beautiful, historical and cultural city that is so lovingly maintained by the kind people who call it home. I’ve been to Jeonju 6 times and I always end up with hundreds of photos and I can never decide which ones to delete because I like them all. Jeonju, I’ll come again, sleep in a hanok across the river, eat bibimbop and drink Moju! Can’t wait!
