    We had fun photo-taking with the hanbok and the kimchi making.
  • Mei Guei 10 Nov 2018
    We have a great time experiencing Hanbok and Kimchi making at Seoul Kimchi Academy. Try to arrive early so you can have more selection of Hanbok. We were glad we have picked our costumes before a big group arrived. The instructor spoke good Chinese and was clear in her instructions.
  • KENG YONG 10 Nov 2018
    Hanbok wearing is fun. Our family of 3 took many nice photos while wearing it. The instructor is very helpful, taught us how to pose and helped us to take nice photos. Kimchi making is fantastic, my 10yo daughter enjoyed a lot. We are allowed to bring back our own made kimchi. Instructor said have to leave it for 2 days before we can consume. Looking forward to try!
  • Tuan Koon 6 Nov 2018
    Had a fun time learning how to make kimchi. The teacher speaks a variety of languages and the instructions were very easy to follow. There are many hanboks to choose but the selections are more plain and not as beautiful as the ones offered near the palaces.
  • Demi 31 Oct 2018
    We got lost looking for the building name but we managed to see the banners up in the window to know we’re at the right place. They were super kind, managed to fit in the whole experience and took a ton of pictures for us!
  • Amanda Kaye 29 Oct 2018
    Quite an interesting experience learning how to make authentic Korean food and getting to eat it at the end. It's a quick simple lesson, but a welcome change from the regular activities in the area. The instructor was very accommodating, friendly, and even funny at times. She was kind enough to take the photos for us while we were in our hanbok and during the lesson itself. They even vacuum seal your kimchi, safe enough to take back home and enjoy. Definitely recommend this cultural experience. :)
  • Patrick Gonzales 29 Oct 2018
    Nice hands-on experience. Getting to eat the food we prepared was an added bonus.
  • FOOK CHEONG 28 Oct 2018
    very good experience with friendly teacher. Easy to make, the process was fun and enjoyable. easy to allocate e academy. im glad with this package from klook offer.
  • Anne 27 Oct 2018
    We were 10mins late for the class because the building was hard to find due to inconsistencies with Google maps. Once you exit the MRT station (Police Station/Cathedral exit), turn right on the first corner where you’ll find Angel-in-us coffee, then turn left uphill, after about 3-4 buildings, you’ll find a small sign board across the road where you’ll find the Seoul Kimchi Academy at the second floor of the building. The instructors were pleasant and helpful. TIP: Take your time taking photos in a Hanbok as they have a good selection of colors to choose from, complete with accessories for both men and women.

    fun and happy to prepare kimchee and play around
FAQs

Activity Q&A

Q: Can my children join the Hanbok Experience only? Will they be able to enter the Kimchi making course?

A: Yes, children can participate in the Hanbok experience without taking the kimchi making course. They can enter the kitchen area to observe the kimchi making process off to one side. If they wish to participate, please make sure they purchase a ticket for the kimchi making course (same price as general admission adult ticket).
