Most of the structures standing there now are but recreations of the originals, but they were expertly built to possess the aura of antiquity. It’s actually much like the Nayong Pilipino we once had in Paranaque, only that it is focused on just one theme – the life of Korean ancestors. The pavilions (houses of Korean royalty), ponds and gardens inside the park were so made to look like the ones built years ago in the valleys surrounding Namsan Mountain (the mountain hosting much of Seoul).
(Shy me. He he. Idol si Coldman!)
Wondering where Jumong was shot? I’m guessing, but I can’t help but think that some scenes were shot there. Bet? Well, maybe not Jumong, but for sure, some of the Korean period teledramas we see on TV had this place as setting.
