Welcome to the Website of the Encyclopedia of Korean Folk Culture!

The Encyclopedia of Korean Folk Culture is being compiled and published, which consists of eight subjects : Seasonal customs, Folk beliefs, Folk literature, Rites of passage, Folk arts, the Necessities of living (Food, clothing and housing), Livelihood skills and Folk society. Since it is a work in progress, the English version of the Encyclopedia is being published in a timely fashion following the completion of the Korean version and the contents are also being provided through the website.

This service allows you to understand traditional Korean culture as well as contemporary life, through a variety of images and videos coupled with high-quality contents.
