First of all, i wanna give a big thank to Korea Tourism Organization Singapore for the sponsored trip to Korea! 
Tho is my Third time visiting Korea, but first time visiting the southern part of Korea!
Covering on Southern Coast of South Korea showing our way of getting
to our destination, having our own fun time doing free n easy! It was cold, crazy and definitely fun 
w/ the companion of my travel buddy Hpility & friendly and funny escort Grace! 

Naganeupseong Folk Village! What's is it about? 

It was said that Naganeupseong is a Korean castle in SuncheonSouth Korea. Naganeupseong is the only remaining Joseon dynasty castle in Jeollanamdo. 
It has the biggest feature that it was built on the plain fields and has the narrow stone walls around the castle. This is traditional village where 85 households and 229 people still lives inside and there're lots of guest houses. 

"Naganeup village has two defining characteristics. It is not a village of the aristocracy, but one of the common people, with thatched roofs and simple stone walls. The second important detail is the village is protected by a fortress wall that encloses the village built to protect the inhabitants from Japanese soldiers or pirates."

It is one of my favorite place to visit in Korea as well! What best is it was really peaceful and quiet, making the scenery even more enjoyable.
