Glad it's jut located right opposite our hotel in Myeongdong - Royal Hotel Seoul. The session started off with hanbok wearing, the kind lady bosses are very helpful and offered to take loads of pictures for you. :) Then we moved on to kimchi making and each of us got a sealed pack of half a cabbage (quite heavy) to bring home in our checked in baggages. Tip: do ask for a recipe though as you will definitely forget what is taught.


Fun learning of making kimchi and wearing Harbor. Good experience


Very interesting experience. The Hanbok is so beautiful. staff are nice and friendly, keep on helping us to take photos. Kimchi making is not difficult, with guidance from the instructor.




Very Nice experience. Highly recommend for anyone.
