The folk village tour is definite must if you're in Seoul. Our tour guide, Anna, was great. She made sure we were able to catch the live action shows of the village and gave thorough explanations of the village. Her English was excellent. For a half-day tour, we got the highlights. If there is time, I would recommend spending a full day since there's so much to see there.
