    Very informative and enjoyable. You get to take home the kimchi you made and eat the tteokbokki right there at the venue.

    My friend and I signed up for the Kimchi + Tteokbokki + Hanbok Culture Experience at Seoul Kimchi Academy and we had fun! There was also another pair of participants other than us. Since the group was rather small, we had more attention and help from the teacher. The teacher actually helped us with taking our pictures when we donned the Hanboks. The Kimchi and Tteokbokki lessons were also easy to follow. I think the whole process of cooking, learning what ingredients were used in making these dishes, and finally, eating them is very fulfiling. We could pack our Kimchi dish and bring in back. As for our Tteokbokki, we had it for dinner at the academy, served with Sikhye. I would seriously recommend this experience to those who are coming to Seoul! Yeah!

  • Zhi Xuan 28 Mar 2018
    The staffs there were very friendly and able to speak multiple languages such as English, Mandarin and Japanese. Although we can't see the teacher's demonstration well from the back, the staffs swiftly came to demonstrate to us! Kimchi was yummy and got to try on hanbok with no rush! Highly recommended
  • Ai Yong 27 Mar 2018
    We enjoyed the session so much and the academy teacher was very patient and explain very clearly to us on the process. We definitely will recommend to others for this itinerary
  • Mee Fong 23 Mar 2018
    friendly and funny teacher. Teach us how to do kimchi slowly. she also help our parents to choose hanbok to make them more handsome and prettier. the environment was great and relax.

    It was a good thing that my friend and I booked the hanbok & kimchi experience on a weekday (Wednesday). We were the only ones, so we felt like VIPs. We can do funny poses without having to feel embarrassed. And the lady there was really friendly and she even volunteered to help us take photos (might be because we were the only ones there). And you get to bring by the kimchi you made too!
  • MAZNI HANIS 12 Mar 2018
    The teachers were really kind. They helped to take our pictures. Even though the teachers dont speak good English, we just picked up the key words and that already helped with the whole recipe. Overall, experience was amazing and worth it !
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).
