If you enjoy learning about the history, customs, and ancient habits of the people of Jeju, or if you are a lover of Korean dramas, you should check into the movie scene. Seongeup Folk Village is a must-see.

One feature that distinguishes Seongeup Folk Village is that the magnificent dwellings, whether viewed from a distance or standing upside down, resemble mushrooms, which are quite charming. These dwellings are hundreds of years old, constructed completely of lava rocks from volcanoes, and their straw and bamboo roofs are still quite strong. While some of the houses have been turned into tourist attractions, many families continue to live in the ancient villages.
