    It was a good introductory session to hanbok and kimchi. The instructor was friendly and gave us many pointers to pose with our hanbok. We also get to bring home our self made kimchi. Plan this activity in your itinerary if you are in Myeongdong area.

  • SHIHYING 5 Mar 2019
    It was such a fun experience! Self make tteokbokki was so tasty, and you get to learn how to make a certain type of kimchi. Both fun and educational. The teachers were amazingly helpful and multilingual, they were able to speak Korean, Chinese, Japanese and a bit of English in one class! The hanbok options were not a lot though, but overall would definitely recommend this to visitors!
  • 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).

    Experiencing how to make kimchi is so fun. :-) It completes my korean tour together with the traditional Hanbok. The facilitator is very enthusiastic and supportive.There is one english speaking staff that made sure we understood the instructions.They even provided good packaging for the kimchi that we made. It's the best souvenir I got from korea. ❤❤❤
  • Ngan 22 Mar 2019
    The culture experience is so excited. We learned step by step and easy to follow up with tutors. After we finished, we can bring all kimchi ourselves back to home, it’s so sweet.
  • 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!
  • Jie Yin 22 Aug 2018
    A very very good experience whereby u get to learn how to make kimchi and tapokki. Everything was provided and the teacher helped us to take a lot of photos.
  • 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!
  • idayu 12 May 2018
    Great cooking experience. Highly Recommended. Thank you Klook.
  • 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.
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).
