    The instructor was a very pleasant lady who speaks english well. Bigger sized ladies (like myself) no worries, they do have hanbok that we can fit in with all the cute accessories. The instructor also took many photos for us throughout the lesson, teaching us what poses to do. 10/10 would recommend!

    Glad to have the Hanbok experience because it was winter when we are there so it was too cold to rent a Hanbok to walk around outdoors. The accessories were beautiful as well. The Kimchi making session was interesting and builds family bonding
  • Farah Nursyahirah binti 13 Jan 2019
    It was fun! We wore traditional hanbok and made our own kimchi. The teacher helped us to take pictures with the hanbok and we also had free time to take our own pictures. We brought back our own kimchi too!
  • Syafiqah 7 Jan 2019
    It was fun. The teacher is very friendly and interacts with us very well. Her explanation was also very clear.We even get to bring home the kimchi that we made.
  • Chong Ming Melvin 6 Jan 2019
    hanbok photo session was fun but could have been better with more male costume options. Kimchi making session was fun as well and we get to keep the kimchi we made in a vacuum pack that we could bring back home!

    1. Hanbok experience is just so-so, there are plenty of choices but it's just something that you wear on top your clothing. Photos won't look too nice. The facilitators there will help you to take photos and even teaching you how to pose! 2. Kimchi - something that I enjoyed personally. Especially since we get to bring home the kimchi we made. The soaking of cabbage is already done for you, so you're basically cutting leeks and radishes, add all the seasonings and 'massage' them and 'stuff' them into the cabbages. 3. Tteokbokki - Ingredients prepared for you, and you're just stir-frying everything and add the ingredients accordingly. After that you'll be allowed to sit and enjoy your cooking with a cup of tea.

    Easy to follow cooking instructions. There were no other people, just two of us during this session. Like a private class!
  • Yin Shan 31 Dec 2018
    Our family enjoyed very much in Kimchi Academy. We arrived earlier so we had more time to choose hanbok and took lotsa pictures. The host was very friendly and super speedy in taking pictures. The building is diagonal opposite a 7-11 store on 2nd level, line 4 Myeongdong station exit 10 is better as once exit will be the correct direction rather than exit 9 has to turn back else will walk further away from it. (Look for building name “東洋-Dongyang” as kimchi academy not easily spotted).
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).
